From the Principal

I hope everyone is staying warm. :smile: Please remember to look for your child’s report card this week. If you have questions regarding your child’s grades please contact the teachers as conferences are not held in the winter.
Keep warm this week! ~Mrs. Melissa Martin

Re-Enrollment at Arbor Academy
The State of Michigan establishes rules and guidelines governing the operation of Charter Schools. A portion of these guidelines pertain to admission requirements as part of being a school of choice. The State requires that each child must be re-enrolled in the Charter School they are currently attending to reserve their space for the fall of 2015. Each child who is currently enrolled is then guaranteed a space as long as the re-enrollment form is completed and returned to the school by 4:00 pm on February 13, 2015.

NEW ENROLLMENT
Enroll your child for the 2015-2016 School Year. Open enrollment for new students for this upcoming school year ENDS on Friday, February 27th at 4:00 pm. All applications received before February 27th at 4:00 pm will be date stamped. All returning students must return their re-enrollment form by February 13th to secure their spot at Arbor.

If you have questions regarding enrollment or re-enrollment please contact Mrs. Kok or Mrs. Way in the office.

The law has changed for students entering Kindergarten. The child must be 5 before September 1, 2015.

NWEA
Students began taking the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress test this week.   We are very impressed with the growth we are seeing! Testing ends January 30th

Please make sure you send your children to school prepared to be assessed. Students should get to bed on time and wake up rested. Remember to praise them and remind them how smart and ready they are to take this test! :smile:

Thank you,
