From the PTA

To all the staff and members that came to our meeting last night! We were extremely happy to see so much support from our Arno Community Staff and our members! It really does take a village to provide for our school and it showed tonight! We appreciate the unanimous support of our proposal to reward our teachers.
The PTSA Spring Fever event is coming up at the High School on, Saturday, March 18th. Our President is still looking for a “Partner-in-Crime” to help co-chair this event with her. There is still time to sign up to donate an item or your time. Arno is in charge of the concessions again and we could use all the help we can get! Come on out and join us! Shop a little. Eat a little. Bid on one of Arno Sponsored Raffle Baskets! We look forward to seeing all the friendly faces! A sign up genius link is available on the PTA Facebook Page and the school blog. All help is appreciated!
Our Daddy Daughter Dance is approaching at the beautiful Parkside Gardens Banquet Center. Please DO NOT wait until the last minute to turn in your RSVP’s. Remember, March 31st is the deadline! There will not be any late RSVP’s accepted! This is FIRM!!!
We hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! THANK YOU again for your overwhelming support of our School Community!
