Happy Halloween!

  • Monday, October 31st.
  • 10:30 AM.  Halloween Parade.  Outside
  • Classroom teacher will communicate with you if they are having any events to follow


  • Students will wear their costumes to school.
  • All costumes must be school appropriate
  • No play guns or weapons of any kind
  • Please do not allow your child to wear a mask.  Masks tend to slip causing a possible trip and fall accident / injury.

Parade Path:

  • Weather permitting.  We will be outside for our parade.  Our plan is to start the parade with our Kindergarten classes.  We will walk through the building picking up each class and exit door  # 8(5th grade doors).  We will walk around the inside perimeter of the playground fence, and then down the way to enter through the office main door- the best place to stand and watch would be on the outer perimeter of the fence, and along the sidewalk to the office.    Each class will then proceed back to their classrooms

It’s beginning to look a lot like…. Halloween

From the PTA

Happy Friday, Caring Cougar Families!

It is the weekend before Halloween and all the kids are getting excited for….CANDY and Dressing up! Please be safe out there while you’re having fun collecting all your goodies!
Our Gumball Drive is at its end and it looks like we have a BERY tight race between 3 classrooms- Ms. Stanley’s Kindergarten Class, Mrs. Martinchick’s First Grade Class (there’s that name again…didn’t her class all ready win something? HeHeHe), and Ms. Amonette’s Second Grade Class! Results will be posted later this morning, so make sure to ask your students who won!
Our Limo Ride and Lunch with Mr. Zielinski has been scheduled for our top Grade Level Winners of the Fun Run! This grand and glorious escape (we meant, lunch) will take place Wednesday, November 2nd from 10:30 am-12:30 pm!
Our Spirit Wear is in and distributed! We are very sorry for the delay, but we had an overwhelming amount of orders and some last minute orders that we wanted to make sure got processed. We did not anticipate it taking as long as it did, but we’re sure the next round of orders will be handled more efficiently! Look for new products being offered just in time for Christmas!
Thank you to everyone that attended our first Skateland Skate Night of the year! Everyone had fun skating, falling, and even dancing their way through the night! A BIG THANKS to Tania Bassett for chairing this event! She did a tremendous job and we look forward to working with her again at future events!
We had a lot of families show up to our first “Family Dinner Night” at Applebee’s! Thank you so much for supporting your PTA by dining out! We hope everyone enjoyed their visit!
Our Reflections Contest is in high gear! “What Is Your Story”? Everyone has one, let’s show the world yours! The contest ends November 11thwhen entries are due.
Our Richard Paul Anti-Bullying Assembly took place yesterday, Thursday, October 27th. We hope everyone took home some good information as to how to prevent and stop bullying!
Our next PTA Meeting will be held this Thursday, November 3rd from 6:30-730 pm in the school cafeteria. Come on out and check us out! Learn what’s going to happen with the Fun Run Money we raised. Sign up to volunteer at an event or even chair one! As always…FREE Babysitting is available!

Arno is still in need of Voice Volunteers to work with students throughout the building.  I have attached the page below that would need to be filled out and sent in to the office.  The info sheet does have to run through the state iChat site for a background check.  After receiving approval from the district, you would be scheduled to come in and work with kids  We appreciate all of the support we receive at Arno!!
