Families as Partners

When schools and families work together, good things happen for children. At Arco Iris Spanish Immersion School, we see good things popping up all around: in children’s smiles, the achievements of our students, and the positive connections between students and teachers.  


Our tuition-free K-5 school wouldn’t be as great as it is without the support and help of our incredible families. We lean on families as our partners to help make our school community an extraordinary place to learn and grow. 

Volunteering at Arco Iris

Our active and involved Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is the best place to start for parents interested in being involved in their child’s education. The PTO provides support to both school families and the school administration. 


Our PTO organizes a variety of volunteer opportunities and can help you match your skills and available time to the right job. Some parents love to be in the school during the day and offer their time as a library volunteer, room parent, drop-off & pick-up supervisor or field trip chaperone. Outside of the regular school day, parents help to plan class parties, organize the yearly staff appreciation event and Move-a-Thon or even coach our Oregon Battle of the Books teams.

The Arco Iris Annual Auction is held every spring and provides a wonderful opportunity to lend support to our charter school. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, April 15th at the Portland Golf Club. In addition to the planning and organization, families can assist with or donate to the raffles, online auction, live auction, and special appeal. The funds we raise from this event go directly to filling the gap between public funding and the cost of providing an enriching educational experience for children.


The success of our children is our greatest collaboration. We are eternally thankful for the support of all of our families in lifting up the Arco Iris community. Interested in joining our incredible team? Arco Iris is enrolling K-5 students, tuition-free, for the 2023-24 school year.
