Thank you to everyone who attended the skating party last night.  By the looks on all of the smiling faces, it was a great time with all our Cougars.  If were not able to make this event, there will be another PTA Skating Party on February 26 @6:00.  Hope to see out there!




You may have noticed that we have increased patrols around the school during the morning and afternoon by the Allen Park Police Dept.  As the weather continues to worsen, we will have an increase in the number of cars making their way around the building.  Please remember- there are no dropoffs on Markese.  Dropoff and pick-ups take place on Fox and Thomas.

Please remember there is no parking in the drop-off areas, and under circumstance should students be dropped off in the middle of any street to walk across.  Thank you for you cooperation.



A Big Arno Thank You goes out to Allen Park firefighters Rob and Jason.  They recently came to Arno this week, gear and all, to demonstrate and talk about being safe and what to do if there was a fire to our K-3 students.   Arno students also got to enjoy their large remote control fire truck with none other than a Dalmatian driving it through the crowd.   Please take a moment to ask your child what they learned about fire safety and what you plan might be for getting out of your house in the event of an emergency.

As part of our continued implementation of positive behavior support at Arno, the PBIS team will be selling Smencils for $1.00 and Car Clings for $5.00 at our upcoming conferences in November.  Please help support our initiative. The money raised will be used towards the purchase of incentive prizes for the students.



Pizza Kits

The Arno 5th Grade is now selling Little Caesar’ Pizza kits to help the increasing cost of camp.  Camp is a valuable real-world learning experience that our kids take on the early spring.  We will have a sign up sheet in the office if you are interested in purchasing some.  If you cannot make it into the office, feel free to email us and we can help you place your order.  Please consider helping them out,  money is due 10/22, delivery on 10/28



Breakfast and Lunch Program


If you believe that you may qualify for free or reduced lunch, we ask that you please submit the application that went home in September or pick up a new one from the office as soon as possible. Our total count for free/reduced lunch helps the district receive federal funds to run our Title 1 program and help our at-risk students.

If you are not sure about the guidelines or have any other questions, please call the office @827-1050




It’s that Spooky time of year…

Please remember to get your child’s costume ready for the Arno Elementary Halloween parade that will take place on October 30 @1:30.  We will be doing an outside loop weather permitting with all of our classrooms showcasing their cool creations.  The students will then go back to their classrooms for their Halloween party or class.

Please remember- appropriate costumes only and no weapons of any kind.      

Have a great Cougar week!
