Thanks to everyone who stopped in and supported our PTA’s Spring Book Fair! We will be sorting the numbers and report the funds raised at the March 3rd PTA meeting. Thanks for helping to make our fair Groovy!
Arno Fun Fair
What a grand time we had last week at the annual fun fair to benefit the Arno Scholarship Fund. From all the delicious treats at the cake walk, the dime toss, games, prizes, baskets and a great hot dog, there were many smiling faces throughout the day. Please enjoy some pics below.
Here at APPS, we take our meal service seriously by providing the best quality food that lines up with federal nutritional guidelines. If you have never given our breakfast or lunch program a try, it’s always a good time to start. Breakfast starts around 8:10 in the morning (You can drop off early and get the kids in a warm place) and of course we have our hot lunch and salad bar available every lunch time. Please see the flyer for more information- did I mention that every Friday a.m. breakfast time also includes some fun dancing?
Office gets a musical visit
Mr. Hoffman, Arno music teacher, recently treated the office to some wonderful music to top our day. Thank you to Mrs. Brown’s class- you were super spectacular!
