Math Night was a blast! We will certainly be doing this again next year! Thank you to Mrs. Davies, Ms. Mathis, and all of our teachers for making this happen!

As a reminder, our handicapped parking lots are reserved for those with the appropriate placard. They should never be used for drop off or pick up of students at any time.

Thinking ahead to next school year, if you are interested in serving on a parent leadership committee such as School Site Council, PTC, or District Advisory/District English Language Advisory Committee, please let me know! If not, I may approach you to join (wink..wink!)

Have you taken the Hanover Survey to let us know how we are doing? Remember, information from this survey is used to make improvements to Allen School. Take the survey here Parent Hanover Survey

Are you available the first week of July? We have a super cool new playground program we are starting. These are fun games for students to play during recess, but we need help painting the playground courts. If you are interested, please send me an email or stop me in the hall. Once I have a good posse of parent and community volunteers, I will send out the date. I say we make it a PAINTING PARTY!!

Well, that is it for now. I will see you bright and early for our Monday Morning Meet Up at 8:50.

Thank you, Allen School! Our Allen teachers, staff, and volunteers responded beautifully and kept the focus on every child feeling safe and protected during our lockdown and secure campus incident last Friday. I also appreciate each of our parents and our families members for their patience and understanding throughout the incident with the limited information we had. I would also like give a shout out for the support we received from CVESD district office, CVPD, and SD County Sheriff’s Office. Thank you! I will be sending a letter on Monday with more information. Again, it truly takes a village.

That said, Allen School ROCKS and we have lots going on our last few weeks, so get out your calendars:

How are we doing? Hanover Survey

download (4)

Dear Eagle Families,

Chula Vista Elementary School District is administering its annual Hanover survey to gather feedback about Allen’s School climate and culture.  The results of this survey will be used to inform future improvements at our school and district. Additionally, this feedback helps me work on being a better leader for each of our students, staff, and families. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey by clicking on the link below . You can also access the survey through http://www.cvesd.org/. The survey will remain open to collect responses through June 5th, 2019. Click on the following link to access the Parent survey: Hanover Survey for Parents and Families

Last year we had 100 families take the survey which allowed us to understand what we are doing really well and what improvements we needed for this year. So, our goal is to have at least 175 families take the survey this year. I know we can reach this goal, if not surpass it! Please take a few minutes to let us know how we are doing.

Thanks!

Ms. Garcia
