Meet the Teacher
Thanks to all of our Arno families for coming out to our Open House! It was so wonderful to see so many of families come out to hear information from your child’s classroom, we appreciate the support! The hallways were lined with great projects and I am very proud of all of our Cougars. If you were unable to attend, please be sure to contact your child’s teacher to receive any information that was covered that night.

From around the building….
New District Assessment
Allen Park Schools, in trying to better identify students who may be struggling and in need of intervention will be implementing an assessment called DIBELS at all elementary buildings starting next week. The measures are designed to be short (1-3 minutes) and can be used as a universal screener, as well as a progress monitoring tool. The purpose is to identify students at-risk of not meeting grade level reading benchmarks and to provide such students targeted supports immediately.
This year, we will be administering the DIBELS in grades K-5. The number of tests per student will vary based on grade level. A team of trained staff will be administering the DIBELS this fall, winter, and spring. Please read the article below for more information.
First Grade Turns Orange
Our first graders had fun this first full week reviewing colors, and wearing them!

Superintendent Search- Community Forums Info
As we all need to get our children to school, safety is always the primary concern. We will do our best to help ensure an orderly drop-off/pick-up daily, but we need your help in making that happen.
** No child should run across the street to get into a car.
**Help our traffic issues around school by parking a block or so away and WALKING your child before and after school.
**School traffic flow MUST go clockwise around the school. Make sure that your passenger door is ALWAYS closest to the curb.
BE SMART! BE PATIENT! BE CARING! BE KIND!!! BE RESPONSIBLE!!
