Hi ACM Family,


I hope you have settled into your new routine and have had a good first few weeks of school. I am so thankful for the many ways our ACM faculty and staff have supported our kiddos during this season. Thank you, also, to the amazing PTA volunteers who have helped to encourage our ACM families and staff during these first few weeks.


I would like to introduce myself to those of you who I have not yet had a chance to meet. This is my first year as your ACM PTA President and my 6th year at Arapaho Classical Magnet. I joined the ACM PTA board 6 years ago when my, now, 5th grader started at ACM. It turned out to be a wonderful way for me to meet people and to partner with the ACM team in the development of our kiddos.


I hope, whether your family is returning or new, you will find ACM to be a welcoming place for you and your children.


As the school year begins and your calendars start to fill up, please plan to join us at our PTA meetings. This year we will meet VIRTUALLY in September, November, January, March, and May. We have made it easier than ever to stay connected as we meet over Zoom. 


I look forward to seeing each of you soon,

Dede McFarland
