Academy of Arts at Bella Vista

February 2017

Dear Highland Parents,

We are half way through the 3rd nine weeks. Progress Reports will go home on February 6th.

Classrooms will be having Valentine parties on Feb. 14th after 2:15. We want all students to enjoy the celebration. If you send special items for your student, such as balloons, flowers, stuffed animals, candy bouquets, etc.. they will not be delivered until 2:45, right before the students go home for the day. Please do not send any latex balloons.

Remind your students that they still need to wear their jackets to school. The weather is unpredictable at this time of year.

For safety purposes, when dropping off or picking up children before and after school, please do not block parked cars by stopping behind them. Handicap parking is reserved for individuals with a disability, so we ask that when parking in the handicap parking areas please display your handicap sign from your mirror.

Please be aware that police officers are patrolling the area before and after school to help keep all children safe.

Thank you so much for all you do!

Brenda Benfield
