From the Principal

April, 2017

We have two and a half months left of school before we depart for summer vacation – but before we even think about leaving we have so much to do!  Please stay tuned for; end of year assessments, career day, upcoming field trips and school-wide events.  April, May, and June will be busy months!

Lost and Found
We have many items in our lost and found in both buildings. Please claim your belongings by Friday, April 14th. There are coats, gloves, sweaters, etc. Items that are left will be donated to Goodwill.

Parent Teacher Conferences
Thank you to all parents who attended parent teacher conferences.  We appreciate your support in working together for your child’s educational success.  :smile:

NWEA and M-Step Testing
Students will be taking the NWEA MAP test and M-STEP starting April 11th through May 26th.  All grades will be taking the NWEA MAP test and only grades 3-7 will be taking the Michigan State Assessment Test, called M-STEP.  Please check with your child’s teacher to see specific dates of testing.  Please make sure your child is well rested and is present at school as much as possible.

Open House
Our first open house for new enrollments for Fall 2017 will be on Wednesday, April 26th from 1-3pm. Spread the word about Arbor Academy!

A friendly reminder:
Please do not turn left out of Arbor during pick up or drop off. This slows down traffic flow and presents dangerous situations. There is no smoking on school grounds. Please make sure the language used on school grounds or the music being played within vehicles is school appropriate. STOP AT ALL STOP SIGNS. Thank you for helping enforce these rules. You help make Arbor a better place to learn and grow.
