From the PTA

“Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!”

Or as Arno Students would say, “SNOW DAY! YAY!”

Speaking of Snow Days,  we hope that everyone enjoyed theirs this past Monday. The weather is definitely preparing us for the official start of Winter, so please ensure that you send your student(s) to school dressed properly: Winter Coat, hat, scarf, gloves, snow pants, boots (and a change of shoes, especially on gym days)!

Speaking of snow and chilly weather, the PTA has some fun INDOOR events coming up next week and during the Winter Break!

Next week, we have a fundraiser at the Texas Roadhouse in Taylor, on Wednesday, December 21 from 3:45-10 pm. Flyers will be sent home early next week and do need to be presented at the restaurant when ordering in order for the PTA to get credit (10% of your bill gets credited to our PTA).

During the break, the Lincoln Park Skating Center has given the PTA free passes for up to four people during any public skating event for all of our students at Arno to enjoy! They have also included a free calendar of their events during the break for our convenience. What a wonderful gift from the Lincoln Park Skating Center!

Our last planned event is a Family Fun Night at Roosevelt Lanes on, Tuesday, December 27th from 3-6 pm. This afternoon of fun includes: 3 hours of bowling, 2 slices of pizza and pop, and shoe rental all for the Bargain Price of $11 per person! RSVP’s will be coming home this week for the event!

Please return them as soon as possible, so we can plan appropriately with Roosevelt Lanes for our event!

 We hope that everyone has a fun and safe weekend! Stay Warm! 

Please remember to check our Facebook page for updates and reminders!
