We encourage everyone to attend our PTA meeting on Thursday May 4th @ 6pm in the media center, this is our last PTA meeting of the year and also a pretty important one as we are voting on our excess funds we have to spend.
Hello Arno Families,
The Green Team is actively working to ensure Arno Elementary remains an Evergreen Designated School, which is the highest honor among Michigan Green School recipients. Each year, we provide students with the knowledge necessary to become environmental experts. Continue to stay up to date with our latest tips to recycling responsibility as Earth Day is approaching.
Please mark your calendars if you have a child in 3rd or 4th grade. The M-Step window continues for 3rd and 4th grade. The schedules is as follows:
May 2/3- 4th grade ELA
May 2/3- 3rd grade Math
Please make every effort to be sure your child is here on the testing dates.

Looking for Young 5’s info?
If you have an absence to report to the office, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Need to leave an item?
Please leave any items (lunches, books) that you need to drop off for your child in the responsibility cabinet (grey cabinet by the main office doors); there are post it notes and pencils in there to label items and the secretary will check it in the morning. This helps to reduce congestion in the office area, especially to start the day. Thanks!
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.
**There is No Parking in front of the school during drop-off/pick-up
** 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.
BE SMART! BE PATIENT! BE CARING! BE KIND!!! BE RESPONSIBLE!!
