Marked by a ribbon cutting with Principal Shauna Kauffman and Anne Arundel County Public Schools Superintendent George Arlotto families and guests toured the brand new 89,000 square foot elementary school.  The PTA and many community members fought for a long time to have the aging building be placed on the County’s new construction list. At the ribbon cutting, many were on hand to celebrate and tour.

More than 400 students attend the Blue Ribbon school.  Children from part of the Broadneck Peninsula, including those that live in Pendennis Glen, call Arnold Elementary home.

On the first day of classes children will be ushered into brand new classrooms with the latest technology, functional spaces and new furniture. The new building replaces an aging building that dated back to 1967.

Students who attend Arnold Elementary will go on to attend Severn River Middle School and Broadneck High School which are a part of the feeder system.
