Letter from the Principal
TK/Kindergarten Parents Please Join us!
We want to give our newest community members a very warm welcome to Arovista. We are very excited to get to know you and your children. We have a couple of special events just for you.
Meet and Greet
On Friday, August 29th at 3 p.m. you and your child will have the opportunity to meet your teacher and check out your new classroom. Class lists for TK and Kindergarten ONLY will be posted outside the TK/Kinder classrooms. All other grade level lists will be posted at
4 p.m. Please do not arrive before 3 p.m. as our teachers need time to prepare their room without interruption. Thank you for your cooperation! We hope to reduce some first day jitters.
Cheers and Tears
We would like to reduce the first day jitters and tears of our parents by inviting you all to our "Cheers and Tears" table right outside the Kindergarten classrooms. We will have some refreshments for your enjoyment. It will be a time where you can meet other parents, introduce yourself to me, and meet our PTA president and other PTA members. It will be a fun way to get introduced to our Arovista community and find ways to get involved.
We hope to see you at both of these events!
