ARNO ELEMENTARY…INSPIRING STUDENTS TOWARD ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE.
ARNO ELEMENTARY PROVIDES A SUPPORTIVE HIGH QUALITY ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE TO INSPIRE ALL LEARNERS TO ACHIEVE THEIR PERSONAL BEST.
ARNO COLLECTIVE COMMITMENTS
Academics are student-centered, which allow for various learning styles to showcase student achievement.
We will develop and maintain a positive, respectful relationship with each student by using flexibility and adaptability to meet individual needs
We will foster safe learning environments that allow students the opportunity to establish a growth mindset
We have had tremendous support over the past 2 years for our Culver’s scholarship fundraiser, which helps to raise the funds that offer 3 scholarships to current seniors, who are former Arno students. We invite you to come out to Culver’s on Southfield from 5:00-8:00 on October 17 to enjoy a great burger or their other yummy entrees, while mingling with Arno staff. Many of our teachers and staff members are taking a “shift” that night, or just visiting to come out to see the students and families! It’s a great night, for a great cause! Hope to see you there!

Picture Day for Arno Elementary is scheduled for Thursday, Oct 5.
This event’s Order Code is 80263KF.
Online ordering is available before and after Picture Day. Shipping and handling charges may apply to orders placed after Picture Day

Building to Kindergarten Coming Soon!
Registration Link: Building to Kindergarten
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.
Important Attendance Information
Please read the attitude article on the importance of student attendance, which is mandatory by the laws of the State of Michigan. Please be aware that we are required to follow up with families either verbally, in writing, or both when absences reach the 10 full day mark.
The attendance/tardy process:
Ten full day absences- 1st attendance letter sent home
5 additional absences- 2nd attendance letter sent home
Ongoing after 15 absences- referral to our liaison officer for truancy
Students are considered tardy after 8:40am
After 8:40 am, Parents will be required to walk their student into the office to sign them into the building
If a student has accumulated 5 tardies, the parent will need to sign an acknowledgement letter of the tardies
After 15 tardies, a meeting will take place with the principal to discuss possible solutions.
Excessive tardy arrival/very early dismissal
Student arrival after 9:30am will equal a half-day AM absence
Student dismissal that takes place prior to 2:30pm with count for a half-day PM absence
Picking up your student between 2:30 and 3:30 does not count against them
October Exercise Calendar
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
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 never 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!!
