Coming soon to Arno…
No School- Memorial Day
Middle School Band tour
Third Grade Metro Parks Presentation
Class of 2016–District Building Parade
On Friday, June 3rd, we will initiate a new APPS tradition–a memory walk for our graduating high school seniors. They will first report to the middle school and then proceed to the elementary they attended around 1:30, in full ceremonial attire. The idea is similar to the clapping parade of 5th graders we have on their last day, so we will have them enter through the K doors and wind up through the 5th grade doors.
PTA Meeting Cancelled
Arno Elementary will provide a system of support to empower and inspire students

Summer Reading Program called Whooo’s Learning will be kicking off by June 1.

We recently had a visit from the high school jazz band that rocked the gym with some great music! Our 4th and 5th graders were treated to an awesome start to their day and we loved seeing some of our former Arno kids!
New Food Service System
We are pleased to announce a new Food Service system,MyPaymentsPlus, that will show up-to-date meal balances and will also allow you to make online payments directly to your child’s meal account!
In order to view your child’s meal balance and/or make online payments, parents will need to create a free account at: www.MyPaymentsPlus.com A link to the site is on the Food Service page of the district website – http://apps.k12.mi.us/about-us/food-services/, and also available through the Allen Park Public Schools Mobile App (Search: Allen Park Schools). Once you’ve created an account online, you may wish to download the free mobile app (Search: MyPaymentsPlus)
Setting up an account is an easy one-time registration. You will need your child’s student ID number, which is located in your ParentConnection under the Demographics tab.
Additional information, including program features and free mobile app, is included in the flyers attached.
We hope our families enjoy this new convenience and look forward to a successful program launch!

Our last round of NWEA Spring testing began this week with 2nd grade Reading and Math. Our staff use this assessment to measure the growth that students have achieved in Reading and Math over this school year. Students will be taking the NWEA assessment on Chromebooks in their classrooms in grades 2-5. Testing wraps up for the building this Friday.
Have a great holiday weekend!
