Make a special “Thank you” art project
Record a personal thank you video
Send them a digital or ecard
Send them flowers
Tell your child’s teacher what they love about school
Give a special note

Please join us for our last meeting of the year on May 5 in the cafeteria at 6:30- childcare is available. It’s important we get everyone involved in the group- the PTA cannot run fun family events without chair people and volunteers- your help makes all the difference!
ALICE Evac Drill
On May 12, Arno will holding our annual ALICE evacuation drill as we make our way to the Presbyterian church on Park. During this time, classes will head out of the building, choose a route to our rendezvou point, and stay there until we are all assembled- finally heading back which will end the drill.
Our Arno Cougars have been working so hard on the M-STEP! We are very proud of their efforts as we wrap up testing during the first week of May. Parents should receive a parent report from the state by early fall and it will show your child’s score, as well their strengths and weaknesses. More information will come out in when school starts.

TEACHER REQUEST PROCEDURE
As we close one school year and begin to plan for the next, student placement is one of our primary considerations. Our school team of teachers, administrator and social worker spend many hours working together to form classrooms for next year. We strive to balance classrooms with a blend of students based on academic strengths and needs, social and emotional supports, and the unique personalities of each child.
If you have any special concerns about your child’s placement for next school year, please submit a written explanation of the concern. For example, “my son is very active and needs to be placed in a classroom where he will have opportunities to move around” or “my daughter struggles with reading and needs a teacher with a strong background in reading”.
We do not/cannot accept any requests for a specific teacher. Letters requesting a specific teacher will be not be considered. The one exception is a request for your child to not be placed in a specific classroom based on previous first-hand experience you’ve had with a teacher. And, that parent concern / issue should be documented in the office. All such letters are due to the office no later than Friday, May 20, 2022.
This is the same procedure that has been used in previous years and is the same procedure used at Lindemann and Bennie. If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to contact my office.
