All grades will be taking the NWEA MAP test and only grades 3-8 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.

Kids Heart Challenge (Jump Rope for Heart)

Kids Heart Challenge (Jump Rope for Heart) event will be on May 10th. 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. It is super easy to participate and we are having a challenge to see what classroom can have the most students/families download and sign-up using the Kids Heart Challenge mobile app. Visit to learn more!

Safety Reminder!!!

We would appreciate it if students did not arrive at school in the morning until 8:00 am. We have supervision available at that time. Students are not to be dropped off at the center island between schools. There is absolutely no parking in the fire lane even if it’s only for a brief period. Parents may park in the parking lot or available spaces in the middle island and walk their child to class. For parents dropping off at the K-3 building, please remember to turn left before the CDC drive, and then exit or proceed to the 3-6 building. Small children are present under the CDC canopy quite frequently, and drive thru traffic for school drop off is prohibited. A reminder to parents to please not leave your car unattended in the circle drive between 8:00 – 8:30 am and between 3:00 – 3:35 pm. This allows us to provide a free flow of traffic and to safely unload/load the students into your car.

ARBOR ACADEMY IS A SMOKE AND DRUG FREE ZONE! No smoking on school grounds/property. Thank you for your cooperation.
