Letter from Kirsten Antonius, PTA President

Welcome to a new year of school and a new year of PTA.  As we start this year together, please remember the mission of the PTA - to positively impact the lives of children and families.  Together at Arroyo, we support this mission through our wide-ranging efforts by supporting school and district programs, supporting the school community through family events, and giving direct help to the teachers and staff at Arroyo.

If this is your first year at Arroyo Elementary, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to each of you.  If you are a seasoned Mustang family, I know that you are as excited as I am to be starting the school year up again.  Whether a new PTA member or a returning member, we thank you for your contributions, time, and commitment to our organization, our teachers, and most importantly, our students!  As a member of the Arroyo PTA, you are a voice for our kids and part of the largest child advocacy program in the world.  It really is a rewarding experience!

As I embark on my first year as your PTA President, I am looking forward to continuing the working partnership we have established with TUSD, our lovely Principal Mrs. Sheyka and our amazing teachers and staff.  We will continue to provide an excellent learning experience for our children with the support of our members.  I encourage each and every one of you to become a part of our team!  You can support the Arroyo PTA by:

  • Becoming a PTA member: sign-ups are now online. By becoming a member, you will receive voting rights at PTA meetings and an online school directory

  • Volunteering: share your talents with our school. By getting involved, you’ll be part of the solution, helping to make positive change.

  • Donating: Provide resources and time needed for the Arroyo Olympics, the Spring Fundraiser

Arroyo Elementary is truly a special place.  We have an amazing community of students, parents, teachers and staff.  Contributing to the Arroyo PTA only enhances and strengthens this relationship.  Thank you for helping to make every student’s potential a reality. 

Let’s have a great year!


Kirsten Antonius
