Introducing our Principal of the Day
Marshall Hegedus enjoyed a day of being in the top spot at Arno in his role as Principal for a Day (Top Fundraisers). He got to experience first hand all of the work that goes into running a school and how fun it can be to get to experience all of the kids at Arno. Great job Marshall, I couldn’t have done it without you! Mr. Zielinski
Parent/Teacher conferences this fall will be taking place on Nov. 30 (5:00-7:30) and Dec. 1 (12:45-7:30), Dec. 1 is also a half-day- 11:40 dismissal. This year for conference sign-up, we have once again chosen to use a web based tool called signup genius. Many of you may be familiar with it as a number of Arno staff and the PTA have used it in the past for various events. Using this tool allows you to have the ability to choose times that are best for you while looking over the slots available, as well easily scheduling siblings.
Each teacher at Arno has their own signup genius link to click and choose times. In a couple of weeks, we will be posting all of the links in the blog, and you will get a link from your teacher as well. Simply choose the teacher and click an available slot, then go and repeat for siblings in other classrooms. We will have a computer available in the office if you are not able to access the program. There will not be any paper sign up this year
- To be on time
- If you have more than one child, please don’t schedule back to back as you will need travel time to move around the building
Fun Run fun with Limo and Lunch for our top fundraisers!
We had an awesome time together as the Arno top fundraisers got treated to lunch at Red Robins and a limo to get us there. What great weather we had to head out in our decked out limo!
A special shout out to Red Robin for great service from a very friendly staff, which really topped off the afternoon! Thank you to all of our contributors for the Arno Fun Run!

When they are submitted, the school earns 10 cents for each one received. Over the past few years, Arno has been averaging approximately $1000 per calendar year. This money is used to purchase merchandise and help to pay for special events that benefit the entire school.

Please cut the area out with the UPC code as well as the point value. When they are submitted, we have the opportunity to obtain merchandise from a catalog that can be used in our school.
