Cookie Dough Sale

Image result for otis spunkmeyer

Arno will be once again doing the Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough fundraiser starting  Nov. 8 to help supplement the many requests we get from staff during the school year such as assessment programs, research-based activities, special project supplies, literacy materials, tech, etc.  The last fundraiser helped us purchase many extra classroom supply requests, Super Cougar pizza lunch supplies, books, and professional development for teachers.

The PTA has been a tremendous resource for our building with all they have given, however, the many teacher requests received throughout the school year to give our students the very best experiences create a need to seek additional support.  Therefore, we have partnered with this company to offer you a choice of items should you choose to purchase any, that would support providing more resources for our teachers. The large envelope coming home on Nov. 8 and will contain all of the information needed (and there is an online order method).

Fundraiser Timeline

November 8 – November 19         Fundraiser Sale

November 23 All money and orders due (online payment option available)

Game Truck Prize for qualifying sales: TBD

From the District

Dear AP School Community,

We recognize that this has been a difficult couple years for families, with reduced work hours or income, illness and the rising cost of food, gas and other monthly bills.  Things may be tight and support may be needed.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, we are sharing the website below, “Julie’s list,” which includes many resources and supports for families in need.  Thank you to the AP Social Work Team for providing this information.

Please reach out to your building principal or school social worker if you need further assistance.

Culver’s Scholarship Night

We have planned a restaurant night at Culvers (15655 Southfield Rd, Allen Park) for the evening of October 19 from 5:00-9:00- the best part of the night is that Arno staff will be at the restaurant helping out the Culver’s crew! All proceeds from the evening will go the Arno Scholarship fund, which gives 3 APHS students who formerly went to Arno, the chance to get some scholarship money towards college.  Please come and join us and see the Arno staff in action!

Walk to School Day / October 6, 2021

Walk to School Day Coming Up

Walk to School Day (W2SD) is an international event celebrated each year in October. This annual event began in 1997 by the Partnership for a Walkable America, to encourage walkable communities and has grown to an international event that takes place in over 40 countries worldwide. In Michigan, over 90,000 students across 304 schools participated in W2SD events at their local schools last year. Walk to School Day encourages healthy habits, heightens awareness of traffic safety, draws attention to environmental concerns around schools, and is a great way to build local momentum for a Safe Routes to School initiative.

W2SD 2021 officially takes place on October 6

Please see the schedule below where your child can meet Arno staff to walk into school on Oct. 6:

Cleveland & Park: Mrs. Pushman & Mrs. Arnoldy
Harrison & Rosedale: Mrs. Watson 

McLain & Park: Mr. Trionfi
Regina & Rosedale: Talamonti and Johnson

Families can apply for free, reduced lunches - Hamilton School District

Breakfast and Lunch Program

Although Breakfast and Lunch are free for every student this year, it is still important for our school that everyone fills out the Free and Reduced Lunch form.  The number of approved free and reduced applications greatly affects our Title I funding from the Federal Government, which is used for our at-risk program here at Arno.  I urge everyone to fill out the form, even if you think you may not qualify.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office.

**If you believe that you may qualify for free or reduced lunch, we ask that you please submit the application that went home in September or pick up a new one from the office as soon as possible. Our total count for free/reduced lunch helps the district receive federal funds to run our Title 1 program and help our at-risk students.

If you are not sure about the guidelines or have

any other questions, please call the office @827-1050

Thank you again Mr. Peace for helping us build a positive, safe learning environment at Arno!

Traffic Pattern


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!
