Invite your friends and family to dine in or take out from Canoe House and just let the server know you're supporting AV.

South Pasadena Youth Commission will be handing out prizes to participants at the AV front gate. Can Arroyo Vista be CAR-FREE on Wednesday?!

Mr. Speck:Technology Integration Coach
Greetings AV Families! Many of you have seen me around campus for the past two years as the Curriculum Specialist here at Arroyo Vista and at Monterey Hills. This year, I have taken on the role of Technology Integration Coach for all three Elementary Schools. In my new role, I am helping students and teachers to integrate technology into the curriculum. I am excited to visit classrooms and help students to grow as 21st Century learners. I am at Arroyo Vista every Thursday, so please stop by to say hello! Go Wildcats!

Hello Arroyo Vista Community! I am so thrilled to be a part of your wonderful school. I feel lucky and honored to serve your community. Most recently I worked for Sulphur Springs School District as Assistant Principal at a TK-6 elementary school. Prior to that I worked as a classroom teacher for Glendale Unified School District. My education background includes a B.A. in Child Development, M.Ed. in Cross Cultural Teaching, and an M.Ed. in Educational Administration. I consider myself a lifelong teacher and learner. I look forward to all the life lessons this school year will present!
