Hello Eagles, Ms. Garcia here with some information to jot down in your calendars for next quarter.

We have some amazing news! Our students last year made incredible growth on the state test CAASPP at the end of last year. We grew by 8% to 70% in English Language Arts and 11% to 63% in math. Not only that  but we also increased significantly in scale score points for both ELA and Math putting us in the blue square in the California Dashboard 5 by 5 matrix. 3rd graders last year really knocked it out of the park with a whopping 87% in ELA and 76% in Math. Students return on October 8th and we want to celebrate our achievements with an Allen Pep Rally. Please join us for a short Tuesday Meet Up, but stay to help us create a Welcome Tunnel for Students and teachers. I will send more details in email, text message and a separate blog post. We want it to be a surprise for students. In the meantime, check your calendars for October 8th and see if you can be a little late for work that day to be part of the Welcome Tunnel. We should be done with the Pep Rally by 9:15. 

We want to remind students to work on their Variety Show act during Break.  Auditions will be on Thursday, October 17.  This is such a fun time to showcase the talents of our Allen Eagles.  Thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Rhoades for taking on this event once again.  The theme is Broadway.  The acts do not have to fall under that theme but they can if you’d like.   

The Harvest Ball will be on Friday, October 25 from 5:30-8:00.
