2015-2016 Registration Days

The dates and times are below.  If you have multiple students to register, please feel free to choose the time that works best for your family.

8:00 am - 10:00 am:  Last names A-L
10:00 am - 12:00 pm:  Last names M-Z
Thursday, September 3rd:  Grades 3 - 5

ALL required paperwok is now available online (the forms are on the Arnold PTA Website, so click here for the Registration Form packet).  Please complete, print, and bring all forms with you on the day of registration.  We will have extras printed if you are unable to print at home, as well as computers available for you to complete the forms online. Teacher assignments will be given to families who turn in all of the required paperwork that day!  If you are unable to attend one of the Registration Days, you can send the paperwork with a friend or turn into the office before school starts.


Please check the lost and found in the cafe (open until 6pm daily) if you are on campus at any time. All unclaimed items will be donated.  Please put your child’s name in their jackets and lunch boxes.

Chirp the BirdExpect Respect – 

At Arnold Elementary we strive to ensure that all students feel safe and confident on campus. Last year, we introduced Chirp the Bird to help us spread the message that we all need to “Expect Respect”.  The hope is that Chirp’s message will help prevent issues of teasing and bullying on campus.  Also, Chirp’s message to “Stop-Walk-Talk” provides kids with tools to use if they find themselves in a bullying situation.  Please be sure to let us know if your child is experiencing any form of bullying on campus so that we can address it immediately.

Pick-Up Policy  

Please remember that you CAN NOT park in the staff parking lot when picking up your child after school.  Cars are only allowed in the valet line for pick-up. Parking behind cars in the staff parking lot blocks our staff from being able to leave and creates a possible fire hazard.   

PLEASE NOTE: Do not let children run around unsupervised if you are waiting outside the front gates for upper grade dismissal.  School is still in session for the other students.
