Dear Allen Families,
We hope you enjoyed the weekend fall weather. It reminds us that seasons are changing and it’s important to dress your children in layers so they can adjust their comfort throughout the day.
We will cover the following topics in this week’s update:
Upcoming Early Release and Half Day
This Wednesday, October 20th is an early release day. School is dismissed at 1:18 and teachers will be participating in professional development for the balance of the school day.
Friday, October 29th is a half-day and school is dismissed at 11:28 on this day. Grab and go lunch bags will be provided on this day.
Tuesday, November 2 is Election day and students do not have school on this day.
If you are ordering school photos for your child with a check, those need to be returned to school in the envelope by Tuesday, October 19th. If you are ordering online with a credit card, there is no need to return anything to school. If you would like your child to retake their photo, or they were absent on Picture Day, they may do so on the morning of November 9th.
Halloween at Allen
While Halloween is a day celebrated by many students and families, it is not a holiday celebrated by all. Halloween is not a taboo word or subject in our school or community. But we want to be cognizant that just like other holidays, not all children celebrate this one. If your family celebrates Halloween, we ask that you mark the occasion outside the school day. No costumes during school, please.
Our Allen Parent Council is looking forward to bringing back the annual Allen Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 23, from 1:00-3:00pm. This is a great opportunity to connect with other families and students in their Halloween costumes. Help is needed, to sign up to host a trunk, please go to: https://www.signupgenius.com/
Allen Book Fair
The Allen Library will host a Virtual Scholastic Book Fair from Tuesday, November 9th, through Monday, November 22nd. Our book fairs are typically key financial support for the library program. Until we can safely offer an in-person fair, this is a great opportunity to support the library and ensure there will be fun, new, and relevant titles available to all of our Allen eagles! More detailed information (including directions and links) will be available soon.

All are welcome to join the Ann Arbor PTO Council tonight, Monday October 18 at 7pm for our Virtual Parent Support Fair! Our vision is that this meeting will be a place for parents/caregivers and PTO and PTSO reps to connect with community organizations.
Organizations expected to attend:
The meeting will begin with a brief welcome from the PTOC and then a representative from each group will introduce their organization. Meeting participants will then be able to visit each group they are interested in connecting with in breakout rooms after.
