Thank you so much to all of our Arno families that came out for conferences this past week.  We know that research confirms the importance of a strong school-home relationship and that we truly do need a “village” to raise a child.  Please at any time for the remainder of the year if you have any concerns be sure to contact us.


From the PTA

“Hi-Di-Ho, Campers!”

The PTA cannot THANK everyone enough that helped make our Happy Camper Book Fair such a success! Our book fair chair worked hard to bring new ideas to this fair and we are so appreciative of all her hard work! Thank you Nicole and thank you to all our volunteers! YOU ROCK!!

Our annual Red Cross Blood Drive was held on Thursday, February 16th in the Arno Gym and was quite a success. The Red Cross said that this was our biggest turnout in years! Way to Go Caring Cougars!

A quick reminder that this is the LAST DAY to purchase Founders Day Dinner Tickets in the office. Tickets are $20 each for this event that takes place on, Wednesday, February 22nd, 6pm at Crystal Park Banquet Center. Please consider joining us in celebrating all of those who give so much to our community and school! Arno has many Caring Cougars receiving awards this year!

Parent Surveys

Thank you to all who were able to participate in our annual stakeholder survey.  Overall we had 52 participants and have collected some good data to help us improve the overall experience at Arno.  All of the feedback you have provided will also be summarized and becomes part of our school improvement plan for the 2017-18 school year.  I have listed below the “big picture” results- which gives us a quick look, then the staff will dig deeper in the near future.  The bar graph shows an average of scores based on the responses given.  The scale is based on 5 total points.

100s Day

It’s hard to believe that 100 days has already flown by this year!  Our Arno kindergarteners had a great time remembering that milestone!
