"Hi Susan - I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful place ARCS is! My daughter is having a very good year. In fact, her best ever! She usually has a hard time feeling comfortable, but has no problem here! Her teacher has made the class a great, caring and learning community, and this sure makes a difference! I am so glad we chose this school - it has made a big impact on my daughter's view of school now! Sincerely, R.D."

This week, a Folsom Lake College children's theater class performed Jane the Horse, a lesson in Anti-Bullying at ARCS. The actors were entertaining and delivered a positive message about how friends treat each other. Our 3rd-6th graders were entranced with the performance! Thank you, Folsom Lake College, for visiting ARCS!
