Curriculum Night is Wednesday, August 3rd.

Hello Families,

Please join us on Wednesday, August 3rd from 5:00-6:30 for Curriculum Night. This is a great opportunity for families to understand our classrooms and Allen’s learning environment. Before going to visit your child’s classroom, there will be a general meeting in the auditorium at 5:00. At 5:15, families will be invited to visit their child’s classroom to learn about California Content Standards, curriculum, and other important information about the class. At 5:45, that will be the conclusion of the first teachers’ presentation and there will be an opportunity to see the presentation in another classroom if you happen to have more than one student at Allen. We look forward to seeing you!

Please disregard the date stated in the Sunday All-Call for 7/24/16. I stated the date for Curriculum Night was August 5th. That is an error. The date is August 3rd. I apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks! Ms. Garcia

School Start Wednesday, July 20.


Hello Eagles,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. School starts on Wednesday, July 20th. We will start off this new year with an all-school assembly on the playground. After checking out your class list and teacher, check the letter that corresponds with your classroom number. That is the letter you will line up on all year. Don’t forget it is a minimum day so Kindergarten through 3rd grade is released at 1:40 and 4th through 6th grade is released at 2:00. Just a few things to note:

  • Traffic and parking will be very challenging. Please plan ahead and allow for plenty of time to drive and park.
  • Please use all designated crosswalks on the street AND in the Daly Academy parking lot.
  • Be a kind and courteous driver.
  • We will have a few staff members with class lists available outside of the office to direct you to classes and the playground on Wednesday.
  • Sunday Night All Call archives are available on this blog site under the “All Call” tab just in case you didn’t answer the call or did not get the voicemail.
  • If you have not done residency yet, please make sure to do that as soon as possible. Wednesday will be incredibly busy in the office, so please complete residency before then.

See you on Wednesday! Enjoy these last few days of summer.

School Pictures

This is a reminder that school pictures are this Friday, August 22.  If you would like to purchase pictures, please send in the money with your child on Friday.  The money needs to be turned in to the teacher and given to the photographer when your child is photographed.  You will note on the flyer that there is a price discrepancy.  The top portion shows a higher price than the portion on the envelope.  The photo company increased their prices, however they did make the revision in both places.  They will honor either payment.

Additionally, volunteers are invited to come at 8:15 AM to take a picture for a volunteer badge.

Bring your smiles everyone!

Community Forum for New Principal

Dear Allen Parents/Guardians and Staff:

It is with mixed feelings that I write to inform you that I am leaving Allen Elementary to accept the position of Principal at Juarez-Lincoln Elementary in the Chula Vista Elementary School District. While it saddens me to leave behind such talented and wonderful students, parents, and staff members, I know that everyone here will continue to work hard and stay focused on our students to ensure their success.

During the past seven years, I have watched our students grow and thrive at Allen Elementary. These years have rewarded me personally and professionally. I’m proud of the progress that each child has made and attribute that success to the partnerships between our parents and staff. Allen Elementary will always have a special place in my heart.

In order to fill the principal position, a Community Forum has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 18. The forum will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the school’s multipurpose room. Childcare and Spanish interpretation services will be available. This forum will offer you an opportunity to provide input on the skills and experiences you would like to see in your new principal.

If you are unable to attend this forum, you may provide your input on the enclosed form. Kindly return it by Tuesday, June 17. Your input will be used to create a profile to help select your new principal.

Please notify the CVESD Human Resources Office at (619) 425-9600, ext. 1340, by Tuesday, June 17 if you plan to attend the forum. You may also fax your confirmation or comments to (619) 427-3271 or email to:

Once again, let me express my sincere gratitude for all our work together over the past seven years. I will always be grateful for the many wonderful memories I take with me. It has been an absolute honor to serve our children and this learning community.

Toni Faddis
