Principal's Message

Welcome to Arnold Elementary School…Home of the Lions!!Principal Vanessa DeSantis

Arnold School is a great place to grow and learn, and our staff is dedicated to providing enriching learning opportunities for all students. Our instructional efforts focus on helping students make deeper connections, develop conceptual understanding, and effectively communicate both their solutions and their solution paths. We encourage students to take risks, try their best, employ a growth mindset, and even have some fun!!! The nurturing and supportive environment we provide allows each student to excel academically, while devel­oping socially, emotionally, and physically. This well-rounded approach to instruction has led to numerous awards and recognitions throughout the years, and we are proud of the quality education we provide.

School culture and climate are also major areas of emphasis at Arnold. We cultivate a safe and positive learning environment for all students and staff by promoting a schoolwide focus on being respectful, responsible, and safe. We help children make good choices, and we recognize student effort daily. This emphasis on character is enhanced by the strong partnership that exists between school and home. Arnold families are involved in all aspects of their child’s education and serve as role models for all of our Lions. Their tireless efforts to support the programs at Arnold have enabled us to provide unique learning opportunities, which are highly valued by all.

I am a proud member of the Arnold community, and I am excited about what the future holds for our students. With our commitment to working as a team to make great things happen at Arnold, there really is no limit to what we will be able to accomplish for the betterment of our students!  What an exciting time to be an Arnold Lion!!!
