    Calendar Updates

    May 18th is an early release day; the Fun Run will be held from 9:10-11:00 AM, lunch will be served, and the bell will ring at 1:18 PM. 

    May 20th is the Disability Awareness Workshop, which our 4th grade classes participate in every year.

    Looking ahead, there is no school for students or staff on May 30th for Memorial Day.

    Super Summer Success

    The Super Summer Success Program was created to support students with 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 is 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 the sign-up form by Friday, May 27, 2022. If you previously tried, and weren’t able to do so, we corrected the link and this should work now. 

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


    Downtown Ann Arbor - Sunday, May 22 - 12 noon - 2 pm

    The Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is hosting a family friendly educational event in celebration of the progress made on the protected bikeway network in downtown Ann Arbor. The event will feature activities in the surface parking lot at 350 S. Fifth Ave. and four educational stations located along the bikeway.

    As we reach school-wide fundraising targets, students will unlock incentives like hat daybackwards daypajama day, and … if we reach our overall goal of $15,000, the teachers will get a chance to flex their water-balloon-toss-skills (as students cheer them on!) in a Teacher Water Balloon Toss Extravaganza!
