Arcadia Unified Doubles Taxpayers Savings to $80 Million

With the refinancing process complete, that figure has more than doubled to over $80 million. Read more about Arcadia Unified's $80 million in savings to taxpayers in the full story here.

Dana Announcements

Penny Wars

ASB is hosting Penny Wars from May 22-26 and inviting all advisories to participate! Pennies count as one point each and you can put them into your advisory’s jar during advisory and during lunch. You can also sabotage other advisories by putting in larger denominations during lunch, like nickels, dimes, quarters, and even dollars, which are worth negative points equal to their value in pennies. The advisory class that ends up with the most points will win receive a donut party. We hope you participate!
