Principal Corner

Arrowhead Community, I want to write about community, knowledge, identity and reaching our potential as human beings.   In seventh grade we were reading some short story where the character goes to Broadway to buy something. My teacher asked us what this told us about the setting, and I raised my hand and shared that he must live near a mall, because he went to The Broadway. The Broadway was a Southern California department store, like Macy’s. My classmates, who were a bit better traveled, looked at me like I was stupid. My teacher gently corrected me that in the story, set in the ‘20s, the author meant Broadway Street in New York. A similar thing happened in Sunday school when our teacher asked what was meant by “Surely Goodness and Mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever” in the 23 Psalm. Since, at this point, the narrator is walking through the “valley of the shadow of death,” which is a really scary place, I naturally assumed Shirley, Goodness and Mercy were three tough lady bodyguards. I was gently corrected. Correction or no, my version of the 23rd Psalm is more comforting, and still my preferred interpretation.   We learn from each other. We carry our family culture and our identity into and through the things we read, the lessons we learn, and the experiences we have.   Mrs. Miller, who won a well-deserved Golden Apple award this year for being one of the state’s most powerful educators, weaves identity into everything she does. She tells us to bring our whole humanity to the children, and to see them in their full humanity every single day. That’s her lesson plan – see the children as they show up and meet them with her whole self.   This year at Arrowhead we launched integrated Elementary Advanced Program (EAP) services. Many of us wondered how reading and writing would go, given that staff were expected to deliver both gen-ed and EAP reading and writing lessons at the same time to a mixed group of students. How did it go? I have never seen such huge growth in our students’ ability to read and write, in their ability to understand language and communicate their ideas. Our January test scores were off the chart for all learners in integrated classrooms.   Children learn from each other. It’s a common misperception that students who are “advanced” are always in the teacher role. Instead, what really happens – particularly with communication skills, which is essentially what reading and writing are - is that children build their understanding of the world and language when they spend time with people whose lived experiences are different than theirs. Our children are building relationships, learning about themselves and others, and developing a richer and more sophisticated understanding of the world. This allows them to better understand written information and to better communicate their ideas to a particular audience.   On April 16th from 5-7:30 we will hold our second annual Identity Night. Please come. Arrowhead has one of the strongest and most loving communities in the district, and it’s due in large part to the fact you all show up and participate. This year, after a gallery walk through our classrooms, we are setting up long tables and eating together. We will have some food and we encourage you to bring a tabletop picnic dinner – bring a little extra to set in the middle and share if you wish, particularly if it’s something that represents your family heritage and culture. Please make a simple (or fancy!) poster that shares your family identity and heritage. These will be displayed in the back of the gym so we can see into each other’s lives a little bit and continue to weave our community together.   As some of you know, I was raised by an atheist and a Lutheran, but the Lutheran was my mom, so she won the family culture stance. In the staid and midwestern mellow culture of the Missouri Synod branch of the Lutheran church, we would say we’re going to “break bread together” at Identity Night, and that’s a very powerful way to build community. Because part of building community is sharing things with each other, I’ll share this powerful Lutheran rock song. Please, if you can get through to the end you will understand the stamina and self-control I had to exhibit as a young child who was dragged to church every Sunday. If you are screaming, “Pick up the tempo!” you are hearing my 9-year old thoughts. This video is almost a perfect capture of what I experienced as a child in the 1980’s Lutheran community, and will give you a little taste of my family culture. You can see why I thought “I lost my cookie at the disco” - which is truly a great song - was hard rock.   If you’re lucky, the dish I’ll bring to share is three-bean salad. Then you will really get to experience what being a young Ms. Bailey was like.   Identity. Community. Food. Family. Our beliefs and our experiences and our stories. Let’s share them and build our understanding of the world and each other. We are in a very small corner of a pretty small town, but we are mighty. See you on the 16th!

Attendance Policy

Attendance Policies - Did You Know?

  • Arrowhead is required to send you a formal Attendance Letter if your child has 5 or more absences in a month—even if those absences are excused.
  • We are required to send a formal letter for 1 UNexcused absence.  
  • If the number of absences continue and it may be having an impact, we will reach out and ask to meet. 
  • Lastly, if you know your child will be gone for more than 5 days in a row (e.g., for a trip) we ask that you fill out a Pre-Arranged Extended Absence Form and submit it to the Office at least 2 weeks prior to the absence.

We do value family experiences and we absolutely want you to keep an ill child home. So these policies may feel contradictory. However, the underlying purpose is good. It is good that we are giving you a heads-up reminder that absences are accumulating, because an absence—even for good reason may need remediation of some kind. 

As we return from Winter break and return to school routines, it is a good time to remember the impact of attendance and tardiness on student growth and progress. Research shows that students do better and feel better when they start the day smoothly, with their class, unhurried and feeling confident they know what’s happening. 

So, If you receive a letter, understand our purpose and intent, and if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.

Identity Night Craft Night March 12 & Identity             Night April 16

Please join us in the Arrowhead gym this coming Tuesday, March 12 from 4-6PM to work on your Identity Night family project! We are hoping to highlight any of the following:

  • Where are your children growing up? 
  • What is important to your family? 
  • What do you believe? 
  • How do you spend time together? 
  • What communities do you belong to?

We will have poster boards, tri-fold, markers, crayons, scissors, etc! This will be a great time to work with your family to create something to display at Identity Night. Do you need ideas? We will also have coloring sheets, prompts, and templates to share what makes your family special. Our goal is to showcase as many family identities as we can. If you are not able to attend craft night, feel free to make something at home and bring it to Ms. Poe in the main office by Monday April 15.  We look forward to displaying your family project in the gym at Identity Night. If you have any questions please reach out to identitynight@ptaarrowhead.org

We are looking for an “all-school” commitment and involvement in this event. We have such a special community here at Arrowhead and our team of parent and staff volunteers are here to help guide and support you in your participation.

Ways You Can Participate:

  • Join our Craft Night on March 12 in the gym to work on your families artifact.

World Down Syndrome Day March 21

#lots of socks with colorful socks underneath

What is the Lots Of Socks campaign?

The Lots Of Socks campaign exists to raise awareness about Down syndrome.

Believe it or not, socks help us to get people talking on World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), celebrated each year on 21 March.

All you need to do is choose some socks that are going to get noticed - they might be mismatched socks or your craziest and most colourful socks, whatever takes your fancy!

If someone asks you about your socks you can tell them, "I'm wearing them to raise awareness of Down syndrome"

Get yourself informed so you can tell them about Down syndrome.

Smart Watch and other Devices at School Policy

Students may wear “SmartWatches” to school. However, they may NOT use these watches to do any of the following during school hours: 

  • NO texting or calling 
  • NO video or audio recording

Students who do not follow these rules may have their watch/device held by the principal until a parent or guardian picks it up. This rule is consistent with Northshore’s policies as stated on the NSD website: 

Students using cell phones and other electronic devices irresponsibly during the school day may have the electronic device confiscated and be subject to disciplinary action.

If the student is involved in an administration interview or investigation, to maintain integrity throughout the process, a student may be asked to provide their cell phone to an office staff member or the investigating administrator. It  will  be returned  to the student  or parent at the conclusion  of the interview/investigation.

Reasonable efforts will be taken to secure property that has been confiscated (i.e. lock the item in a drawer, take the item to the office to be secured in a locked area, etc.); in order to prevent the loss, damage, or theft of any electronic device as a result of being confiscated.

Parent Pick Up Reminders

A road closure on Juanita Drive at dismissal caused one of our buses to return to school with students. We noticed that we need to better communicate our caregiver pick up process. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. Please note the process below:

  • Students will be in a secure location with staff
  • Communication may come from Transportation, Central Office, or Arrowhead
  • Caregivers picking up students need to come to the main office with their ID 

Student safety is our top priority. Once we've verified a caregiver's ID, we will release students to your care. We appreciate your adherence to this process.

Spring is the time of year when our schools administer state required assessments.  These assessments are used for state and federal accountability, to monitor student progress toward grade level standards, as well as an option for high school students to meet their Graduation Pathways requirement. The English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math Smarter Balanced Assessments are administered in grades 3 through 8 and 10, while the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS) is administered in grades 5, 8, and 11. 

Arrowhead's testing schedule:

3rd grade Math and ELA: May 6th - May 10th 

4th grade Math and ELA: May 13th - May 17th 

5th grade Science: April 30th and May 2nd 

5th grade ELA: May 15th - May 17th 

5th grade Math - Barstow: May 28th and May 30th 

5th grade Math - Borgers: May 30th - May 31st

Technology Tidbits

As we move toward spring and the end of the school year, Chromebook damage tends to increase. Please remind your kiddos to transport their device to and from school in its case.

Closures and Delays

If no schedule changes are posted, schools and buses are operating on normal schedules. Emergencies such as inclement weather, power outages and hazardous road conditions can alter school schedules and affect bus transportation. The decision to close or delay schools is made by the superintendent as early as possible, usually around 5:30 a.m. Early dismissals will occur only if a delay in dismissal significantly increases hazards.
