Welcome to the No Excuses University at Arroyo Verde! It is our commitment as students, parents, and staff to do whatever it takes for you to be successful in school; NO EXCUSES! This year you will focus on learning as you prepare your path to college. Each and every one of you has very special academic and social gifts, which you use daily, as you work hard in all subject areas. Your gifts are also seen in the way that you display character by focusing on the six character traits described in our student handbook and demonstrated by our staff. I know that you will be an amazing scholar and promise that you will be successful if you remember these two words, No Excuses. I am proud of you and look forward to supporting your learning and celebrating your successes throughout the school year.
