Kiwanis donates dictionaries to all third graders

Kiwanis, which has been in Allen Park since 1939 and is celebrating their 100 year anniversary, came to Arno on Thursday to donate a new dictionary to every third grade student.  Dave Goodwin, who spoke with the classes indicated that this is the Kiwanis’s 10th year of donating dictionaries.  We thank Dave, Brian Goodmin, Tony Lally, Dean Settemy and all of Kiwanis for this great resource gift to our kids!

Holiday Giving

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 are collecting through Wed.  December 15.  Your donation can be put in boxes if that’s easiest.

We hope that you can join us in this holiday tradition!

Safety and Security 

Please remember that for security reasons, all parents wishing to enter the building during drop off, or other times during the day, must report to the office- even if it’s just a brief pop-in.  This is an important matter and we appreciate your cooperation.


Make it a great Cougar week!
