Zone Transfers and Kindergarten Registration
Zone Transfers (ZT) renewal forms are due on or before Thursday, Feb. 13th in the office. If your child attends Allen on ZT and you would like them to attend Allen next year, please complete this important step. Ms. Reza and Ms. Baptista would be happy to assist you with this in the office.
Kindergarten registration is coming soon as well. If you have an incoming kindergarten student, you can pick up registration materials. Please make sure to let family and friends know that Allen School has plenty of space for students entering kindergarten.
Even though we live in paradise, the weather in San Diego County can change day to day. Please encourage your child to dress accordingly for the day’s weather. A sweatshirt or hoodie can keep him/her warm on those chilly winter mornings and be easily taken off in the warmer afternoons. A raincoat and/or umbrella might be helpful on the days it is forecasted to rain. Thank you for your support with this matter.
Lost and Found
Please remember to check the Lost and Found bins and tables in front of the MPR for any misplaced items. We would also like to encourage all students to write both their first and last name in permanent marker on all lunch bags, jackets, sweaters, water bottles, hoodies, etc… . All items remaining in the Lost and Found at Spring Break will be donated to a local charity.
4th Annual Sock Drive
Allen School’s 4th annual Sock Drive is from February 3rd to the 21st, 2020. Please bring pairs of new, unused socks to your child’s classroom. These socks will be delivered to a local homeless shelter. There will be a popsicle party for the primary and upper grade classrooms that collect the most socks. Thank you Mrs. Burnham for organizing this Allen tradition.
