Ms. Garcia here with your Sunday information for May 19, 2019.

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:

Mother/Son Games will be this Friday, May 24 from 5-7:30pm.  Tickets are $5 each and are being sold before and after school.  If you would like to help with this event, there is a sign up sheet in the office.  It will be a fun-filled night of fun and games so make sure to get your tickets soon.

Verification of Residency will take place on Wednesday, May 29 from 7am to 3:30pm and then again on Friday, June 7 from 7:00am to 3:30pm.  Remember this mandatory process must be completed in order for your child to begin the 19-20 school year.

Mark your calendars for Math Night which is next Wednesday, May 29 from 5:30 to 7:00pm.  This free event is open to everyone.  There will be games, prizes and you can come and go as you please.

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

Here’s the info for the week of April 29th to May 3rd.

Hello Eagles, Ms. Garcia here with some Sunday information for you.

What an AMAZING Field Day we had!  Thank you to Mr. Way and the wonderful crew of volunteers and our spirited teachers who brought not only their time but their great energy, making it such a fun time for All!

Teacher Appreciation is the week of May 6 through May 10.  Student Council created a flyer that is going home tomorrow with ideas to celebrate your teacher each day.  We are grateful for our wonderful teachers who teach, guide and help us to grow every day.  In addition to our classroom teachers, please don’t forget our wonderful VAPA teachers, Ms. Gilman and Ms. Farlow, along with our RSP Teacher, Mrs. Karinen and our Resource Teacher, Mrs. Sullens

Flyers also went home with information for ordering your yearbook.  You may order on-line through May 8.  Make sure to order yours today!

A couple other dates to mark on your calendars are: Mother/Son Games on May 24, Math Night on May 29 and the Volunteer Breakfast on May 31.  More details to follow.

Finally, we are beginning what we like to call our testing season. CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) and Local Measures is starting May 1st. It is really important that we set our students up for success. A couple of proven suggestions helps our students do their best. First, make sure your children get a good night’s rest and a balanced breakfast (breakfast is served at 8:25 each day). Next, make sure students arrive to school on time at 8:50 (or a little early) and every day. Then, make sure to NOT schedule any appointments during the school day. Of course, check with your teacher for specific dates of the assessments for your child’s grade level (I will send a post on Tuesday with the entire testing schedule). Finally, keep conversations around the topic of testing positive. We know it is challenging, but it helps with the mindset for our children to focus on their own success. I know our Eagles will SOAR during this time!

Well, that is it for now, see you bright and early in the morning.
