Dear Arrowhead Families,


    Hello! My name is Roman Capper, and 2022-2023 is my 8th 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.


    It has certainly been a little different over the last couple of years in education.  I'm proud of how our students, staff, and community have tackled the challenges head on and have done the best we could in all circumstances.  We are aiming toward a year or more normalcy this year, especially with some areas that have looked different recently, like lunch and recess.  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 17th.  Kindergarten students will have KRA assessments by appointment on August 17th, 18th, or 19th and then all kindergarten students will attend on Monday, August 22nd.  Open House events are being planned for August 15th between 3:00 and 5:00pm for kindergarten only and August 16th 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. Hairston (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
