    Dear Allen Families,

    Welcome to the first full week of December.  With the recent rain and temperatures just above the freezing point, the playgrounds may be muddy. Wearing boots or older shoes on the playground will certainly help. It’s also the time of year where temperatures in the building may vary from location to location. Sending your child with layers is helpful. Wishing you a warm week ahead! 

    This communication will cover the following topics:

    • Intersection at Towner and Easy St
    • Winter Giving Gift Card Donations 
    • News from the Physical Education Department 
    • Spirit Wear - Final Days of Sale!
    • District Calendar and Important Dates
    • Parent Council Update

    Intersection at Towner and Easy St

    If you are driving to and from school please remember to follow all traffic laws and come to a complete stop at stop signs. We have received complaints about drivers not stopping or rolling through the stop sign at Towner and Easy St. We have asked the Ann Arbor Police road patrol to make periodic stops in this area to ensure pedestrian safety.

    Winter Giving Gift Card Donations

    The holiday season is just around the corner which provides us the opportunity to help the valued students and families in our own Allen community who may need some additional support this time of year. 

    We are looking for gift card donations to Meijer, Target, Walmart, or Amazon that will be distributed to some of our families who could use additional support this holiday and winter season. If you would like to donate a gift card, please contact our Allen office at 734-997-1210 or by email:  Once we have connected, gift cards may also be sent in with your children in an envelope to be given to the office.

    Coaches Needed for the 2024 Science Olympiad Team!!

    Science Olympiad is back for another year, and we need coaches for events! No expertise is required, just a passion for learning with students. 

    To Coach an Event Sign up Here by December 20th! 

    The more coaches we get, the more events we can offer our kids!

    What Does Event Coaching Involve? Each event involves approximately 10 weekly 1-hour practices, starting the week of January 29th and running through April. Event coaches choose the practice times for their event. Practice rooms at Allen will be available on weekdays. This all leads up to the county-wide competition on Saturday, April 20th at Pioneer High School.

    How Do I Learn More? The many different events, and their descriptions are on the WESO website ( If you’re unfamiliar with Science Olympiad, check out the Allen Science Olympiad Site. For questions, please contact Head Coach Julie Martinez (
