What's New?

February 2, 2012 is Jersey Day!

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, we encourage the students to wear their favorite sports jersey or shirt. Football, basketball, baseball, soccer, cricket, or any sports team at all! We have even heard that some of the girls are planning on wearing cheer-leading outfits—great! GO TEAM!

Scholastic Book Orders

For the month of February, we are including both the SeeSaw catalog (Books for children K-1st) and the FireFly catalog (Books for children PreK-K). As you will see, both have some excellent books on sale for a fraction of what they cost in store. Please submit your order by Friday, February 17th 2012 by visiting For those of you who have ordered from the January catalog, your books will be here shortly.

Labels for Education logo
Ari's Academy is now partnered with this outstanding program that provides valuable classroom and school items to enrich our childrens' learning, growth and development. When enough labels are collected, we can turn them in and choose from hundreds of items from school supplies to playground equipment! Visit for a list of qualifying products and to track our school's progress.

School Reminders

Parking: please use the driveway to park whenever possible. Two cars can park there at the same time during drop-off and pick-up. As a courtesy to our neighbors, please don't park on the small strip of sidewalk between the school and our nearest neighbor. And a big "thank you" to those who are able to carpool!

Sign in: Please remember to sign your child in and out at the parent counter just inside the door. Use the "Parent Notes" pad if we need to be made aware of any special instructions for the day.
