As you all know, the MSTEP window opens this week.  This is the start of the window that lasts until the end of May and assesses English Language Arts, Math, Science (4th) and Social Studies (5th).  During this time, it is critical to have your child in school for their testing dates.  We do offer make-ups, but testing with their peers is a more beneficial environment.

It is also very important that your child gets plenty of sleep, has a good breakfast, and has a snack to eat if/when the class takes a break.  I am so very confident that our students are going to master this test and improve on our previous year’s scores!  Should you have any questions, please contact the classroom teacher or the office.

I will post the scheduled days for testing that week, as well as the grade level.  In the meantime, please take a moment to read a letter addressed to parents from our new State Superintendent.

Warmer Weather Check

Seems like we have been robbed of spring as of late, however, the warmer weather will roll around soon and kids will want to wear cooler outfits.   Please be sure to adhere to appropriate warm weather clothing and review the dress code for Arno from the link below.




Allen Park Elementary Honor Choir Concert

Congratulations to all of our talented singers in the Allen Park Elementary Honor Choir for a beautiful concert this past Tuesday evening.  Their voices sounded like angels as they alternated with the chime choir from Lindemann.  Congratulations also to Tracy Hoffman for his dedication in working with our kids after school to develop all of their talent to build up to a successful concert!
