End of First Trimester
It was great to see so many families out for parent/teacher conferences. As research has shown, a strong home-school connection is critical to a student’s academic success! If you ever have questions or concerns, please be sure to contact your child’s teacher.
Thank you Sandy Bennett for kicking off our building Mentorship program with our young leaders. The kids have been so very excited to get started, and now they are off to their assignments!

Arno PBIS team in action!
Last Thursday our Arno PBIS leadership team presented all of our programming that relates to PBIS in front of a packed auditorium at RESA. The team included pictures, docs, and other examaples like shirts and our golden lunch tray program. Observing the room really showed how engaged they were about all of the things our buildings does every day and month. Congratulations to Lisa Smalley, Katie Jensen, Megan Schultz, and Sandy Bennett for an outstanding job!
Dear Caring Cougar’s,
The AP high school counseling department reached out to our PTA. They informed us their food pantry supplies are running low. At APHS food pantry they provide food & necessities confidentially for families of AP students that are dealing with unforeseen circumstances, some of which have been tragic.
At our last PTA meeting members decided to support this cause in two ways. The Arno PTA received a $300 Consumers Energy Grant last year from one of our members for their volunteer service. We voted to allocate these funds to the pantry in the form of $300 worth of Kroger Gift card to assist in their inventory needs. We also decided to place a box in our main office to collect items from now through December. Students and staff can drop donations off and a PTA member will transport it to the HS pantry as our box fills up.
Suggested Items Need; cereal, cereal breakfast bars, pop tarts, canned vegetables, canned fruits, tuna, pasta and spaghetti sauce, macaroni and cheese, ramen noodles (or something similar that’s a quick fix meal) and any type of snacks. Personal hygiene products and socks.
Thank-you in advance for your partnership on this. We are excited to kick off the holiday giving season by supporting the kids in need within our district.
Your Arno PTA
Update on food Pantry:
We are humbly amazed at the amount of donations already cming in for APHS food drive. Here’s a pic of our 1st load from Arno & a pic of our districts sweet ‘lil pantry. December 18th will be the last day we are accepting donations in order to get supplies delivered to HS, sorted & distributed to those in need.
