Dear Allen Families,
Welcome to the first full week of December. With the cold here and lots of layers and winter gear, we recommend you label all of your child’s belongings. This helps get it to the correct owner should it turn up in our Lost and Found. We do go outside daily as long as the windchill and temperature are at or above 0°. Wishing you a warm week ahead!
The communication this week will cover the following topics:
Absence, Tardy, Early Dismissal, Different End of Day Plans Notifications
Please follow these steps If your student is going to be absent, tardy, dismissed early, or if they will have different end of day plans:
Gift Card Donations - Turn in by Dec 12th
Thank you so much for your generous donations thus far!
We would like to distribute the gift cards the week of December 12th so families have time to prepare lists and shop.
If you are willing and able, 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 gloves - new or gently used - (all sizes, but we need more for bigger kids) or gift cards, please contact our Allen office at 997-1210 or by email: email@example.com Gift cards may also be sent in with your children in an envelope to be given to the office - please inform us if you are sending them in this way.
Thank you in advance for supporting our students and families in this way!
Ice Skating Survey - New January Date
Our Allen Parent Council invites you to attend an ice skating event on Friday, January 20th, at Buhr Park Ice Rink. The ice will be reserved from 5:30-6:45 PM for Allen students and their families to enjoy some skating time. To help us prepare for the event, we need to have a sense of how many participants and what size skates are needed for rental. Please take this brief survey: Skating Event Survey
Allen Spirit Wear Store
The Allen Elementary School spirit wear store is a great option for holiday gifts. All orders placed this week are guaranteed to arrive by December 23rd or they're FREE! Visit https://1stplace.sale/48111.

Next Allen PC Meeting
No Meeting for December! The next Meeting will be on the third Thursday of January.
Instead of a meeting, join Parent Council at Buffalo Wild Wings from 6-8 pm for a ‘Parent’s Night Out’ on 12/18 and enjoy getting to know other parents during the time that your purchases will benefit Allen!
Allen is going to have a Science Olympiad team this year and we’re looking for event coaches.
Science Olympiad is for students in the 2nd-5th grades. Hour-long practices are held once a week on the day/time of the event coach’s choosing after school or on weekday evenings. Practices run from late February through the week of May 8. This all builds up to the county-wide competition on Saturday, May 13th at Huron High School.
The more coaches we get, the more events we can offer our kids (student sign-up will be in January)! If you’re ready to volunteer or just have more questions, please contact Head Coach Sukhinder Sandhu and Naima Swisz-Hall (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org).
To learn more about Science Olympiad, check out https://wesoscience.org/ and this video from WESO for some details about the overall program.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
