Teacher Appreciation Luncheon


Teacher Appreciation Week

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  We get to celebrate all of awesome teachers and staff at Arno that make everything happen- everyday!  We could not be more proud of everything that happens in our building- walking in you can see and feel the passion our staff has to do our best for each and every child.  We are so excited to celebrate our superheroes- be sure to thank your teacher this week by sending them a message, or just stop by and say hello.

There is still time to sign up to help out with the luncheon on Friday.  Please see the PTA link below to help out- Thank you!




Congrats to our 5th grade once again.  Third grade started their M-STEP testing this week with English Language Arts and Math.  They will wrap it up next week with the Math Performance Task- everything has gone well so far and the kids are excited to get through it.

4th Grade will be starting their M-STEP on May 9



You’re invited to Arno Planting Day!

On Thursday, May 12th at 5:00pm we start off the evening with a pizza dinner in the caféteria!  

During dinner, we will have Arno friends/families sign-up for stations around the school to help beautify!

After dinner, everyone will head to their stations with their gardening tools to pull weeds.

After weed-pulling is complete at your station, it will be time to plant, then mulch, your designated area. Please bring your own gardening tools! If possible, please indicate the plants and quantity below that you will be bringing so we can plan ahead the planting stations. If you cannot make it to the event, we will still accept and appreciate any plants you are able to donate.  These can be brought to school on May 12th.  Please return the bottom portion NO LATER THAN May 6th, if you are planning to join us or send in a donation!  

Many thanks,

Arno’s Green Team

at Arno, Bennie and Lindemann Elementary

MONDAY, MAY 9, 2016 – 6:00 p.m.

*Children who are five years of age by September 2 thru December 1 may only be enrolled for kindergarten at the request of the parent/guardian through a signed waiver process. Waiver form is available at the Riley Education Center.



As we close one school year and begin to plan for the next, student placement is one of our primary considerations.  Our school team of teachers, administrator and social worker spend many hours working together to form classrooms for next year.  We strive to balance classrooms with a blend of students based on academic strengths and needs, social and emotional supports, and the unique personalities of each child.

If you have any special concerns about your child’s placement for next school year, please submit a written explanation of the concern.  For example, “my son is very active and needs to be placed in a classroom where he will have opportunities to move around” or “my daughter struggles with reading and needs a teacher with a strong background in reading”.

We do not/cannot accept any requests for a specific teacher.  Letters requesting a specific teacher will be returned.  The one exception is a request for your child to not be placed in a specific classroom based on previous first-hand experience you’ve had with a teacher.  And, that parent concern / issue should be documented in the office.  All such letters are due to the office no later than Friday, May 20, 2016.

This is the same procedure that has been used in previous years and is the same procedure used at Lindemann and Bennie.  If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to contact my office.
