From the Principal

May, 2017

May is finally here!  The staff is loving the warmer temperatures and outdoor recess!  This is such a busy time of year.  Please continue to check our website (, our Facebook page, and classroom newsletters for upcoming events!

NWEA and M-Step Testing
5th grade finished M-Step during the month of April.  Grades 3,4,6 and 7 will be taking M-Step sometime in May.  ALL students will continue to take the NWEA MAP test through May 26th.  Students are doing a great job of taking their time and trying their best. 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 next open house for new enrollments for Fall 2017 will be on Wednesday, May 24th from 3-5pm. 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 and DO NOT PARK IN THE FIRE LANE.  Please park in a designated parking spot.  If you park in the fire lane, you may be asked to move. Thank you for helping enforce these rules.

Attention Moms:
Muffins for Mom will be on Friday, May 12th. Moms or grandmothers, please join us for muffins and juice! This event will start at 7:40am in both buildings.

Attention Dads:
Donuts for Dad will be on Wednesday, June 7th at 7:40am. Please join us for donuts and juice in both buildings.
