    Dear Allen Families, 

    It’s hard to believe we only have a month left in the 23-24 school year.  This week students will be taking their end-of-year NWEA assessments. Those results will be shared with families in the report cards delivered to email on the last day of school. 

    We have two big events coming up that need a lot of adult volunteers to run them. Parent Council has planned the Country Fair for Friday, May 31st from 5:30-7:30.  Ms. Hamilton is planning our Field Day for Wednesday, June 5th. The links to sign up for volunteering at these events are included below.  Please consider donating some time to either or both of these events as many hands make light work! 

    This communication will cover the following topics:

    • Spirit Day - Friday, May 24th
    • Super Summer Success Reading Program
    • EBT/EBF Free & Reduced Lunch Applications 2024-2025
    • Field Day Volunteers Needed
    • News from the Library Department
    • Spirit Wear Summer Sale: May 21st - June 4th!
    • District Calendar and Important Dates
    • Parent Council Updates
      • Treat Train
      • Country Fair Volunteers

    Spirit Day - Friday, May 24th

    We have a spirit day this Friday, May 24th. Wear red, white, black or Allen gear!

    Super Summer Success Reading Program

    The Super Summer Success Program was created to ensure all students have a variety of books to read at home throughout the summer. Research has shown that reading over the summer helps students maintain important literacy skills. If your child will be returning to Allen next school year and is currently in Y5-4th grade, you can sign up for this program.

    Your child will receive a bag of books that they can enjoy over the summer. All books should be returned to Allen in September.

    In order to participate, complete this form by Friday, May 31, 2024. Fill out a form for each child.

    Students will bring their bag of books home during the last week of school.

    EBT/EBF Free & Reduced Lunch Applications 2024-2025

    Please wait until after July 1, 2024 to apply for the 2024/2025 school year EBT/EBF- Free and Reduced Lunch program. If you apply now, your application for next year will be voided as of June 30.

    Field Day Volunteers Needed

    We are still in need of volunteers for the 3rd - 5th grade portion of Field Day, which is from 1:05-3:20 pm. Please consider donating your time to make this event a success!

    Field Day at Allen is a fun, end-of-the-year event that is successful only with the help of volunteers.  This year, Field Day is on Wednesday, June 5, 2024.  If you can donate your time, please sign up through the link below for a morning and/or afternoon time slot to help lead a station at Field Day.  Thank you!

    Treat Train!

    With all the uncertainty surrounding our school community, let's raise up our Allen staff! Consider joining the Treat Train via the sign-up link here (think a Meal Train, but with treats!).  

    What: Goodies (donate or homemade) + a note of encouragement
    When: Tuesdays and Thursdays through end of the year; goodies can be dropped off in the office or the staff lounge; drop-off the day-of or pick-up the day-before.
    Who: You! :)
    Other considerations: No nuts, please; and include a recipe card or list of ingredients if homemade, thank you!!

    "When in doubt, do something!" -- Harry Chapin

    Country Fair:

    We still need more volunteers to ensure this event is a huge success. The fair is on May 31st from 5:30-7:30 pm. Please consider signing up for a short shift!   Volunteers receive free admission for their families and the shifts are short enough to ensure you can still enjoy the evening with your children.  Click this link to sign up for a volunteer shift.
