GVSU Renewal Visit

Aprl 2018,

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 13th. There are coats, gloves, sweaters, etc. Items that are left will be donated to Goodwill or Salvation Army.
  • Thank you to all parents who attended parent teacher conferences. We appreciate your support in working together for your child’s educational success.  :smile:
  • Students will be taking the NWEA MAP test and M-STEP starting April 9th through May 25th. 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.
  • Jump Rope for Heart- Kick-off assembly will be on 4/11. Our event will be on May 4th. All students will be able to participate and jump rope to keep their heart healthy.  All monies collected will be donated to the American Heart Association. Envelopes are due on event day.
  • Our first open house for new enrollments for Fall 2018 will be on Wednesday, April 25th from 1-3pm. Spread the word about Arbor Academy! We are still accepting new students for fall in all grades!

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 pick-up lanes after 2:45. You may get blocked in. Thank you for helping enforce these rules. You help make Arbor a better place to learn and grow.
