Parent/Teacher Conferences

Winter conferences are coming up quick on February 15 and 16 from 5:00-7:30 each night.  This conference is slightly different in that not every family generally attends, but is still open as an option for all who would like a conference with the teacher.  Some fast facts:

1. If your classroom teacher is requesting a conference with you, you will receive a notice by Feb. 3.

2. If you did not receive a notice from the teacher, you may still request a conference with the teacher OR decide that you don’t feel a conference is necessary at this time.

3. All classroom links will come from the teacher and be live on the Feb. 3 blog release to sign up for a time on signupgenius for those who need to attend conferences.

4. Report Cards go home on Feb. 3

**Once again, please do not sign up for a slot on signupgenius if a conference is not needed at this point.


Parent Surveys

It’s that time of year already in our school improvement planning where we need to send out surveys to our Arno stakeholders.  You will have the opportunity to take a brief survey from the State of Michigan rating some of your experiences here at Arno.  The survey will be available starting on Jan 27, and end on Feb. 10.  We will be providing the link to it via email blast on that day, as well as posting it in the blog.  If you are unable to access via computer, we will also have sets of computers set up for both parent/teacher conference nights if you wish to take it there.  Giving us good feedback helps us plan better to meet the needs of every Cougar stakeholder.  In addition, students and staff also take a similar survey during the school day.

All of the feedback you provide is then summarized and becomes part of our school improvement plan for the 2017-18 school year.  Thank you very much and look for that link around Jan 27
