ARNO ELEMENTARY WILL PROVIDE A SYSTEM OF SUPPORT TO EMPOWER
AND INSPIRE STUDENTS TO BECOME COLLABORATIVE LEARNERS
THAT STRIVE FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
As we all need to get our children to school, safety is always the primary concern. We will do our best to help ensure an orderly drop-off/pick-up daily, but we need your help in making that happen.
** No child should run across the street to get into a car, or out.
**Help our traffic issues around school by parking a block or so away and WALKING your child before and after school.
**School traffic flow MUST go clockwise around the school. Make sure that your passenger door is ALWAYS closest to the curb.
**We now have some volunteers for the dropoff/pickup, but we need more. Please contact the office if you can help out!
BE SMART! BE PATIENT! BE CARING! BE KIND!!! BE RESPONSIBLE!!
Wahoo! Introducing Arno Elementary’s first Facebook page! “LIKE” us to see lots of great updates and photos from school! This format is much easier to share photos in real time, so the blog photo gallery will now be coming to you in the form of Facebook posts! Thank you for promoting this social media platform as a positive way to share the good news and great things happening at Arno!
HERE IS THE LINK!
**I have learned that there is an Arno Elementary Facebook page out there with pictures- this is NOT an official school page- The real Arno Facebook page is titled “Arno Caring Cougars”. Please check the page to make sure it has current photos before you “LIKE” it- The most recent post is on a lesson from Mrs. Byrne.
So what’s happening with the blog?
The blog, after a post on Oct. 11, will then only be updated once monthly on the first Friday of every month. It will still contain a calendar and other news, but will no longer contain pictures- those will be on the Facebook page.
Of course, as always, if you have a concern or question, please contact me directly by email or by calling our office. I am here to help you in any way you need.
Ohhh, that’s Scary– Halloween Skating
Time to get those costumes on the kids and come on down to Arno on Oct. 31 at 10:00 for our annual Halloween Parade. Our route will take us out of the 5th grade doors that morning, making a loop on the inside perimeter of the playground. Please join us around the outside perimeter of the playground for the best seats. It is a district PD day with an 11:30 dismissal that morning.
Free NHS Tutoring is Back!
Help! Volunteers needed for the classroom!
Drop off for student items
Please remember to drop off any lunches, folder, homework, etc in the cabinet that is outside of the main doors (Be sure to put a sticky note on with their information). The secretary will then go get all of the items in there and be sure to get it to your child. This helps to keep the office clear which helps everything run smoother. Thank you for your help!
VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND CHECKS
In order to protect the safety of all of our students, any family member who plans to regularly volunteer in the classroom, or chaperone a field trip must complete the background check information below. This paperwork is also available in our Arno office. Unless you are planning to begin as a regular volunteer, or chaperone a field trip within the next month, please refrain from completing this paperwork in advance. It is most effective if the requests are processed within a few weeks of the intended volunteer experience. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
