Parent/Teacher conferences this fall will be taking place on Nov. 30 (5:00-7:30) and Dec. 1 (12:45-7:30), Dec. 1 is also a half-day- 11:40 dismissal. This year for conference sign-up, we have once again chosen to use a web based tool called signup genius. Many of you may be familiar with it as a number of Arno staff and the PTA have used it in the past for various events. Using this tool allows you to have the ability to choose times that are best for you while looking over the slots available, as well easily scheduling siblings.
Each teacher at Arno has their own signup genius link to click and choose times. All links are the blog just below, and you will get the same link from your teacher as well next week. Simply choose the teacher and click an available slot, then go and repeat for siblings in other classrooms. We will have a computer available in the office if you are not able to access the program. There will not be any paper sign up this year
- To be on time
- If you have more than one child, please don’t schedule back to back as you will need travel time to move around the building
Please select your child’s classroom teacher(s) below to sign up for a conference time. For the fall, we encourage all parents to attend conferences.
Kindergarten Rocks the Vote…
Mrs. Jensen’s class began their weather unit this week. They worked hard in small groups to read about different types of weather. After they were done reading the books assigned to their groups, they made anchor charts to describe the type of weather. On the anchor charts, the students also informed us on what we wear and fun activities we can do when experiencing those types of weather.

Arno has a number of items that we collect to benefit the school and other organizations. Please see below for more information.
Pop Tabs– Maddy Every (4th grader) collects pop tabs for a very worthy cause- The Ronald McDonald House. Please consider collecting and sending in your pop tabs to help- Great job Maddy!
Box Tops – Box Tops are found on hundreds of products. Please clip the dotted line and have your child turn them into the office. When they are submitted, the school earns 10 cents for each one received. Over the past few years, Arno has been averaging approximately $1000 per calendar year. This money is used to purchase merchandise and help to pay for special events that benefit the entire school.
Labels for Education- Campbell labels are found on many different products, usually soup labels. On those slips it will say either 1 point or 5 points. Please cut the area out with the UPC code as well as the point value. When they are submitted, we have the opportunity to obtain merchandise from a catalog that can be used in our school.
As we all need to get our children to school, safety is always the primary concern. We will do our best to help ensure an orderly drop-off/pick-up daily, but we need your help in making that happen.
** No child should run across the street to get into a car.
**School traffic flow MUST go clockwise around the school. Make sure that your passenger door is ALWAYS closest to the curb.
BE SMART! BE PATIENT! BE CARING! BE KIND!!! BE RESPONSIBLE!!
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!!
