Arno Decks the Halls with Christmas carols

The building was alive with the sounds of our Arno students belting out some awesome Christmas carols, helping all of us feel the holiday spirit (still no snow to do that).  Huge thanks to Mr. Creutz and Mr. Skebo for an outstanding performance and in leading in holiday song this morning, much appreciated!

Arno Family Caring Night

What a great time we had together last Friday night as an Arno family, enjoying each other’s company and showing how much Arno cares about the community.  At our Caring Night, kids and parents enjoyed pizza, listened to Christmas stories, of course crafted an ornament for the residents of the local senior center.  Way to go Caring Cougars!

What an incredible job Arno did in collecting cold weather gear and food.  That included 166 cans of Spaghettios!  Thank you for being so generous and showing the true meaning of Christmas!

Below, Darren Putnum, Seth Black, Tyler Tillery and Bryce Sauve help load up all the donations to area people in need.

3rd Grade Fur Trade

Metro Parks visited Arno 3rd graders once again this past week to talk about the fur trade back in the day.  The students got treated to lots of history on the fur trade in Michigan hosted by a French accented colonial woman that helped them understand what it involved.  Thank you Metro Parks!
