The first day of school for Arnett Public Schools was Thursday, August 11. Going back to school always has a certain level of excitement for teachers and students. Teachers have rearranged and redecorated their classrooms, studied new curriculum, attended professional development, and spent hours at the school before August even rolled around preparing for the upcoming school year. Different facilities and areas of the school have received a facelift, some faculty have changed job titles, and a few new teachers and aides have been added to the Arnett staff. We are looking forward to a wonderful year with our students, staff, and community at Arnett Schools.
Teachers and staff officially reported to school on August 8th for inservice. That Monday, Arnett hosted Fargo-Gage, Leedey, and Shattuck Public Schools as Dave Burgess, author of Teach Like a Pirate, delivered an amazing morning of professional development. The area schools ate lunch catered by Gusto’s Italian Grill and had grade level/curriculum area breakout sessions that afternoon. On Tuesday and Wednesday, teachers received all of their state required professional development and met with their administration.
“Meet the Teacher” was held Wednesday evening before school began. PK-6th grade students had the opportunity to bring their school supplies to their classrooms and meet their teachers. Incoming 7th graders had a “Sneak Peek” to junior high where they received their lockers and class schedules.
The first two days of school were filled with fun projects, lots of pictures, rules and procedures, and extracurricular meetings. We are looking forward to a successful 2022-2023 year at Arnett!
