Lynnhaven River Now's Pear School Program
Arrowhead Elementary is participating in the Lynnhaven River Now's Pearl School Program. This program helps teach our students environmental stewardship. As part of the program, we're offering students and their families the opportunity to participate in the Pearl Home Program. The Pearl Home Program helps homeowners make their homes more environmentally friendly. Remember, restoring our waterways starts at home. Getting students involved in making their home "greener" is a great way to put their lives on the path of environmental conservancy.
If you are interested in participating, please go to the Lynnhaven River Now link for additional information, complete the attached application, and return it to school with your student by Friday, February 3rd. Lynnhaven River Now will distribute Pearl Home awards (a garden flag and a sticker for your trash can) to the homes that qualify. Pearl Home Application

Recommended Home Install for SOL Test Practice
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been working to expand the types of devices that school divisions can use in the administration of Standards of Learning (SOL) online tests. In order to accomplish this goal, the VDOE is upgrading its software from TestNav7 to TestNav8. The software will be phased in during the 2016-2017 school year. There are no changes to the subjects tested or types of questions that will be presented. TestNav8 online practice items are only available through the TestNav8 app. Instructions on how to install TestNav8 on various devices are listed at the link below. Practice guides should be used when reviewing the online practice items and are available on the VDOE website. To view online practice items you will need to download the new TestNav8.

Monthly Parent Pick-up
Please be reminded that our dismissal time is 2:35 p.m. The designated parent pick-up location is the Arrowhead Cafeteria. This is a very busy time of day therefore, unless you have an unavoidable circumstance, we ask that you do not pick your child up until this time. Arriving even 5 minutes early for parent pick-up means classrooms are interrupted to call students out. On time pick-up helps us to ensure safety at dismissal.
