From the PTA

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an all-volunteer, parent-run, non-profit organization that works cooperatively with school administration and educators to provide opportunities for our students and families to socialize by providing fun family events and in-school opportunities. We have provided assemblies, family activity nights, playground/gym equipment, student technology, staff appreciation, and so much more!

Fun Run Success! 

Wow! Our Cougars did an amazing job gathering donations for the Fun Run! Together we raised almost $28,000 and want to thank everyone who helped make this event a success! We couldn’t do it without the support of our Cougar families, volunteers, teachers, staff, and the PTA – A BIG THANK YOU! These donations help fund special events such as dances, family activity nights, in-school assemblies, gym equipment, and so much more. We had so much fun this year and hope your Cougar did too! Way to go Cougars!

Next PTA Meeting

Thursday, October 6th at 6:00 PM – Come see what we have planned next for our students!

 *New Room Location* We will be meeting in the Arno Media Center. Enter through the school front doors, go all the way down the hall until it ends and turn left. We will have childcare for all Arno students. Please register to become a PTA member.

Fall Office Fundraiser

Arno will be trying a new fundraiser this year- Mrs. Fields/The Cheesecake factory starting  Oct. 24 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, and books 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 Oct. 24  will contain all of the information needed (and there is an online order method).

Fundraiser Timeline

Halloween Parade

Time to get those costumes on the kids and come on down to Arno on Oct. 28 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.

Halloween is a full day on Monday. While some teachers may do some activities centered around Halloween, costumes are not allowed on Monday.  Thank you!

Food Service-Free & Reduced Lunch Application

Food Service-free & reduced lunch application

ALL Families MUST REAPPLY for Free/Reduced Lunch this year, if you feel you qualify. There is NO carry-over from last year as all students were F/R.

The Federal Government has ended the Free lunch program for all kids that was in effect during the pandemic. Breakfast/Lunch will now need to be paid for if you would like to have your child participate. I would encourage everyone to fill out and return the Free and Reduced Application for lunch, which if your family qualifies, can provide breakfast/lunch at a reduced or FREE rate.

To apply ONLINE, please click on the following link: https://frapps.horizonsolana.com/allp01


Line-up Procedures

Line-up procedures will remain the same as last year with outdoor lineup

  • Students should line up at their assigned door

  • The playground is always closed before school starts

  • Parents will not be permitted to enter with students/stand in the halls- normal protocol to sign in with the main office does not change

  • Students will enter the classroom at the 8:30 bell

Be Careful Safety First Safety Sign MGNF971

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.

**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.
