Allen Student Speaks with Passion and Poise
On Wednesday, May 16, at the regular Chula Vista Elementary Board of Education meeting, 4th grade student, Cristina Rodriguez, gave her passionate speech to the Board Trustees. She represented her school, as well as her family and district, with dignity and poise! We are so proud of you, Cristina!
Allen In The News – Virtual Variety Show
Please use the link below to view the Allen Elementary Virtual Variety Show for 2021. Please note, this link will only be active for a limited time, so be sure to watch this soon from the comfort and safety of your own home.
We are so proud of all our talented Eagles. Not even a global pandemic could break our 38 year streak of providing a forum for our students to showcase their talents! This Allen Virtual Variety Show is a testament to the perseverance and tenacity of our students. A HUGE shout out goes to Ms. Cynthia Redfield, our amazing parent volunteer for putting this show together.
Friday Live Event: DIY Lava Lamp
Join the next live weekly event, DIY Lava Lamp, this Friday at 12 noon! This event will be led by Mrs. Hughes at the Energy Station. Students will have the opportunity to take on the role of a biomass plant technician as we experiment with density and build our very own lava lamp together.
The event is for all ages and is open to the public. It will begin at 12 noon on Friday, May 21st via the Microsoft Teams platform.
Spanish interpretation of the English event will also be available. We look forward to seeing you there!

If you were not able to join last week’s live event, Creating a Whirligig with Mr. Garcia, a recording of it can be found here on our district’s YouTube channel later this week.
Save the Date to Return Devices
Save the Date: We will be collecting all school laptop computers and WiFi hot spot devices that were checked out by families on the dates below. For your convenience, we are offering three different dates with a wide range of times. Please bring the computers and chargers to the front of the school where we will have staff ready to accept them at a table and record that the computer or wifi hot spot device was returned.
- June 14th: 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
- June 15th: 11:30 am to 5:30 pm
- June 16th: 8:00 am to 3:30 pm
Please make plans to return any computers or WiFi hotspots device at one of these times. Please note:
- If your device was damaged while in your family’s possession, you may contact the school office at (619) 479-3662 to set up a payment plan to fix or replace the damaged device. You may also contact the school office if the computer or wifi hot spot device was lost or destroyed as you will also need to set up a payment plan to replace the device.
If you would like to return your device earlier (because you have your own computer and no longer need a district device), please contact the school office to arrange an earlier drop-off date and time.
Calendar for the 2021-2022 School Year
Did you know that next year’s School Calendar (2021-2022) was already approved by the CVESD Board of Education? Click this link to download it. At this time, we anticipate that all students will be on campus for the full school day in July 2021 when this school year starts. The district will offer a Virtual Academy for students whose families wish them to stay in Distance Learning, but those students may be considered enrolled at a different school and will no longer be Allen Eagles!
Be well Eagles! Stay safe: We encourage everyone to get the COVID-19 vaccine when you are eligible to do so.
