December brings around a wonderful time of year. Unfortunately, many people do not have the ability to enjoy the season as much as others.
To make things a little bit easier for some families, we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Christine Food Bank/Soup Kitchen. The food bank provides non-perishable goods to families to help stretch their grocery budget. The soup kitchen provides hot meals to school children that might not get one during the week. The kid favorite…Spaghetti-o’s
Arno school families have always been generous in the past. We are asking for donations of food to help brighten the holiday season for others.
In the spirit of sharing holiday warmth, we will also be collecting new, warm outerwear like hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves to share.
We will begin our collection on Monday, Nov. 30 through Wed. December 15. Your donation can be put in boxes that will be available aess.
We hope that you can join us in this holiday tradition!
Just a reminder that as part of a healthier school, there are no sweet birthday treats allowed in the building. Pencils, erasers, etc. are perfectly fine to bring as a “treat” for the class.
As we have already been hit with one snowstorm, more is always on its way. As far as snow goes at Arno, please read the following:
1. As long as our play areas have been treated, we will continue to go out throughout the winter (as long as the wind chill/temp isn’t too low).
2. Students who wish to be in the snow should at a minimum be in boots and protective leg wear to keep them dry. This prevents large amounts of students from needing a clothing change, and missing class time. Students who are not wearing protective covering for the snow will be required to stay out of the snow for recess.
3. Snow stays on the ground. Please talk with your child about the dangers of throwing snowballs, which can sometimes contain ice. Students are free to build a snowman or snow fort, etc., things that keep the snow on the ground.
All of these rules apply before/after school, bus stop to walking home, and recess.

This year’s theme was “Let Your Imagination Fly” and as you can from some of that night’s pictures, our students reached for the stars. The next step is to give awards to some of the entries, which will then go on to a state competition,. Congratulations to all of our Arno students who entered- you’re all superstars!
