Many were ecstatic to see the outcome of the area and how much work was put into it. “I’m really excited to graduate from this beautiful stadium. “Attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony made me realize how well done it was. The colors on the field and track represent our school perfectly,” said senior Alma Molina.

This year many sports and performing arts had to practice and have games on our smaller fields. Some sports teams had to travel to other schools in the district to use their field or track. 

“I had to put a lot of time into track and field because without the stadium we didn’t really have anywhere else to train. Going to Rosemead High School took a lot of the students’ time because we would come home near 8:00 pm, tired and with little time for homework,” said senior hurdler Miley Valdibia. 

Arroyo has come a long way rebuilding our school into the best it can be. The new stadium will give off a completed look along with the new gymnasium that is currently under construction. 

“To the future students of Arroyo, embrace it, and thank the community for making this happen because without them we wouldn’t enjoy what we have today. So embrace it and have a great time and take care of your school,” said Dr. Zuniga.
