Hello Eagles, Ms. Garcia here with your Sunday information for August 25th 2019. 

Tomorrow, our students will get the information for the Ultra Fit Fun Run and bring it home to you. Aside from raising money for our PTC to provide enrichment activities for our kids, this is a great opportunity for some fun physical exercise and tons of cool incentives too! Mark your calendars for September 11th for the running event! 

Picture Day is coming soon. Thursday, August 29th is the day.  

Our variety show is in December this year so we will be looking for performers of all ages, upper grade crew members, and 6th grade hosts. Details will follow, but auditions will be in October. The theme this year is Allen on Broadway. Your act does not need to be related to Broadway. We look forward to our 37th Annual Variety Show. 

Don’t forget Parent Teacher Conferences and minimum days start on Thursday, September 12th and run until the last day of school. Make your appointment today, mark your calendars, and make those transportation arrangements. 

Here is our Traffic Safety Tip of the week. Please follow regular traffic laws around Allen School. Red zones are no stopping or parking zones. Do not stop or park in any red zone around our campus. For those of you following our traffic guidelines every time you drive near Allen School, we thank you and invite you to politely remind other drivers of our traffic guidelines. The safety of our children is the most important thing.

To keep students safe:

  • Remind your children of their drop off or pick up point (Daly Academy or the Center Courtyard on campus).
  • Do not park anywhere in front of Allen School
  • If picking your child up on campus, park on Allen School Rd. or other neighboring streets and walk to campus.
  • Drive slowly and cautiously.
  • Do not double park or park in the red zone.
  •  If the yellow drop-off pick-up curbside is full, continue to circle until there is space.
  • Do not motion for your child to walk between cars or disregard the safety patrol officers.
  • Use crosswalks at all times.
  • Be a positive role model for children when on campus.

Thank you for your cooperation to make sure each child gets to and from school safely!

Well, that is it for now. I will see your bright and early tomorrow!

Info for Your Relaxing Sunday

images (6)

Happy Relaxing Sunday! Here is some information for you for the Week of August 4th.

Thank you to all the families who came out to Curriculum Night and the Family First Friday. Every time we get together, I learn more and more! I also want to thank all teachers and staff for their work. The first ten days of school are always a challenge and like the Eagles they are, they soared!

If you are interested in one of our parent leadership committees (School Site Council, District Advisory/District English Language Advisory Committees) please inform the office, me, or turn in the interest form I passed out during Family First Friday. Please make sure to include a short paragraph description about yourself and why you wish to be a parent leader. More interest forms are here at this link SSC & DAC Interest Letter to Parents_2019-20

Let’s talk a little student safety. Please keep from parking in the staff spaces in the front of the school along Allen School Lane. This is particularly unsafe during drop off in the morning and dismissal after school as people don’t see children when they are entering and exiting car doors when pulling into the spaces. If you wish to do a pick up or drop off without leaving your vehicle, use the Daly Academy roundabout. If you prefer to walk onto campus, park on Allen School Road or in the Daly Academy parking lot.

For dismissal, we will open the gates at 3:05 on regular days. Please wait under the overhang near the auditorium or in front of the 400 building. Please do not enter the halls until the bells ring. Our teachers are teaching to the very last second of the day! For minimum days, we will open gates at 1:40 for primary dismissal. If you are waiting for an upper grade students, please remain under the overhand near the auditorium and the 400 building until 2:00 as there are still 20 minutes of instruction still happening.

I am looking forward to a great week of learning! I know our Eagles will dig in deep this week. I will see you bright and early on Monday morning.
