Coming soon to Arno…
Half-Day dismissal 11:40- Teacher PD
PTA meeting 6:30- Founder’s Day nominations
On behalf of Arno staff, we wanted to thank all of our caring families for coming out to conferences this past week. We know that research puts a heavy weight on the importance of parental involvement in school, and that’s why a strong parent/teacher connection is so important. It was great to see so many of our families come out and enjoy time learning about all the wonderful accomplishments your child is currently working on. As we move forward, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher should you ever have a question or concern. Thanks for being a great partner!
A reminder that we have another half-day dismissal coming up on December 7, and then again on January 18. Dismissal is 11:40 a.m.
From the PTA
December is upon us and the Holiday Season is in full swing! We hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break celebrating with family and friends.
Just a few reminders:
Our December Meeting is, Thursday, December 8th from 6:30-7:30 pm, in the Arno Cafeteria. We will vote on Founders Day Nominations and give important information about our upcoming events in December and January (no meeting will be held in January). There will also be a midway budget breakdown analysis which will give us an excellent view of where our organization stands financially at this point in our school year.
Speaking of Founders Day….Nominations are due TODAY! Please drop them off in the main office in a SEALED ENVELOPE or to the PTA President! These are the only two ways your Nominations can be submitted.
Today is also the last day to submit your Spirit Wear order forms! Make sure to get them turned in for your Christmas Shopping convenience!
Our Reflections Celebration was held this week with lunch with the Principal! Thank you so much to our chairs, Heaven and Cathy! They did a wonderful job and we just appreciate all their hard work! Congratulations to the students! Their stories were told and are hopefully proud of the entries!
ARGH! We hope all you enjoyed our Book Fair! Books are some of our greatest treasures! The success of this event was made possible by our Awesome Chair, Nicole, and all the wonderful volunteers who came and donated their time to make your experiences positive. We could not have done it without them and their families! Thank You, Mateys!!!Have a Great Weekend and do not forget to check facebook for updates!
Arno Spirit wear is due today! Please see the flyers below to some very cool Arno swag
What a wonderful celebration lunch we had this past Monday with all of our Reflection contest entries. Our very own Arno PTA provided yummy pizza and cookies, while each student was able to share their piece and some background on how they created it. Congratulations goes out again to Ben Klos, Katie Klos, Gerry Klos,

DRESSING FOR THE WEATHER
Brr! The weather has turned chilly! Although our afternoons are often warmer than mornings, please send your child to school with a warm coat daily. We definitely want to take advantage of the sunny fall weather to play on our playground and with our fun new equipment, but need to be dressed appropriately! It’s always a good idea to dress in layers to adapt to changing temperatures. Please label your child’s jackets and sweaters so they can find their way back to their owners if left somewhere. The Lost & Found is currently full of items needing to be claimed!
