    Dear Allen Families,

    As we wrap up our final week of school for the 2024-25 school year, we want to thank you for your support and partnership this year. Whether that was in preparing your child to come to school daily, volunteering for the various activities and events that took place this year, or sending in treats and appreciation to our staff this spring, we thank you all for your care and collaboration in support of our students and staff. 

    We’ve seen so much growth and progress with our students, and while many are ready for the summer break, we will miss the community and connections we have created this school year. Whether moving on from Allen or returning in the fall, we wish you a wonderful summer with your children.

    Thursday Dismissal Time

    Our last day of school this year is Thursday, June 13th. Dismissal time is 11:30 AM. Let your child's teacher know if you'd like them to take a Grab & Go lunch. Buses will run right after dismissal.

    Yearbooks & Report Cards

    If you ordered a yearbook for your family, they will be going home on Wednesday, June 11th. Report cards will be sent electronically on June 13th. 

    Important! Complete Enrollment or Registration

    Emails have been sent by our Student Accounting department, and these are to complete Enrollment (new students or PreK to K) or Registration (returning students). Look for the email from “noreplyregistration@powerschool.com” with a subject line of “Ann Arbor Public Schools: Full Enrollment Notification 2024-2025 School Year” OR “Ann Arbor Public Schools: 2024-2025 Online Registration Notification”; if it’s not in your inbox, check your spam folder. 

    We would like to have as many of these completed as soon as possible as this helps us plan for the coming school year. If you have questions, please call the office at 734-997-1210, or email allen@aaps.k12.mi.us

    School of Choice Window Reminder

    The second School of Choice window is open through June 27th. All grades are open for School of Choice at Allen except for Kindergarten. If you have moved out of the AAPS district this school year, or believe you might move over the summer (even a remote possibility), you should fill out this application before June 27th!

    AADL Summer Game Information

    A great way to keep reading this summer is to involve the whole family with the Ann Arbor District Library's SUMMER GAME. Everyone can play and earn points through reading, gathering codes from around town, and participating in library events. Just to get you started, the AADL has partnered with AAPS libraries; CLICK HERE to find a scavenger hunt where a special game code is hidden in the link to each AAPS school. Click on the school name, find the summer game code, and add it to your SUMMER GAME account when it opens on Thursday, June 13th. Happy reading!

    A big 'thank you' from the Parent Council to everyone who participated and volunteered in our many events.

We also hosted the Fun Run, Trunk or Treat, Skate nights at Buhr Park, Multicultural Night, Disability Awareness Workshop, Science Olympiad, School Musical, the Country Fair, and more! We look forward to next year! Thank You!
