Dear Arrowhead Families,


    Hello! My name is Roman Capper, and 2023-2024 is my 9th year as principal at Arrowhead Primary School.  This is a very unique learning environment with a terrific, dedicated staff and a wonderful community of parents, grandparents, and volunteers.


    I love that we were able to get back to some "normalcy" this past year after a few very weird years of education!  It was good to be back to eating in the cafeteria and planning field trips and all of the activities that we've enjoyed here at Arrowhead over the years.  I'm proud of our students and staff and how we all worked together in 22-23 to have a great year of growth!  We will work to continue that in 23-24 as well as welcoming in a new group of kindergarten students and families!  We will continue to communicate information leading up to the start of the year and into the year itself as things get more solidified.  This year, the first day of school for students in grades 1-4 is Wednesday, August 23rd.  Kindergarten students will have KRA assessments by appointment on August 23rd or 24th and then all kindergarten students will attend on Friday, August 25th.  Open House events are being planned for August 21st between 3:00 and 5:00pm for kindergarten only and August 22nd between 3:00 and 5:00pm for grades 1-4.  Information about class placements will come out as soon as they can be finalized. 
    Throughout the school year, I want to urge you to reach out to your child's teacher, Mrs. Barkliano (our school counselor), or me if you have any questions or concerns.  Primary school is an exciting time of growth and development for our young students!  Through this important period of change, we want to work alongside you to create a welcoming, fun, and safe environment here at school.  If we can help in any way, please let us know.

    If you haven't already, please register through Copley Connect! to receive email notifications from the school.  This can be done through the "envelope" icon on the right-hand side of this screen.  Much of our periodic information, including my weekly newsletters throughout the year, will be delivered through this service.


    I'm looking forward to another great year!


    Thank you,


    Roman Capper
