Parent Surveys

It’s that time of year already in our school improvement planning where we need to send out surveys to our Arno stakeholders.  You will have the opportunity to take a brief survey from the State of Michigan rating some of your experiences here at Arno.  The survey will be available starting on Feb 1, and end on Feb. 12.  We will be providing the link to it via email blast on that day, as well as posting it in the blog.  If you are unable to access via computer, we will also have sets of computers set up in the gym for both parent/teacher conference nights if you wish to take it there.  Giving us good feedback helps us plan better to meet the needs of every Cougar stakeholder.  In addition, students and staff also take a similar survey during the school day.

All of the feedback you provide is then summarized and becomes part of our school improvement plan for the 2016-17 school year.  Thank you very much and look for that link around Feb. 1

Attention 5th Grade Parents

From the office of Mark Lowe, Middle School Principal:

Dear 5th Grade Parents/Guardians,

We would like to invite you to the 6th Grade Parent Orientation, which will take place in the Middle School cafeteria on Tuesday, January 26th from 6:30 – 7:30. This orientation is for the parents/guardians of current 5th grade students who will be attending Allen Park Middle School for the 2016-17 school year.  This is a great opportunity for you to come and learn about your student’s first year at Allen Park Middle School.

Although we cannot make this meeting mandatory, we stronglyencourage you to attend. Even if you are not a first time parent of a middle schooler, the information provided is always being renewed.

This is a PARENTS ONLY event. We ask that you leave your student at home for this evening, as they will have their own orientation at the end of August.  Principal, Mr. Mark Lowe, Assistant Principal/Athletic Director, Mr. Bruce Andrews, and our counselors Mr. Curry and Mrs. Kristin Gladd will be presenting information and will be available for questions.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, January 26th!


Mark Lowe

Spring (winter) Book Fair

Our spring/winter book fair will be taking place the week of Feb. 8, with a Groovy theme!  The book fair will also be open on some special days that week including Feb. 6 (Fun Fair) and Feb. 10 and 11- the nights of parent/teacher conferences.  Please stop by and browse all of the great books that Scholastic offers.  This is a PTA sponsored event with proceeds going to the Arno PTA.

Dollars and Sense Assembly

Arno students enjoyed an assembly that blended magic and a lesson on money (saving).  Chris, our presenter, energized the crowd and helped everyone to think about ways they could save money in the future- and some awesome tricks!  Thanks to Mrs. Warneck and Dr. Chuby for bringing Dollars and Sense to Arno.
