Dear Allen Families,
The winter weather is upon us and it looks like we will have some cold days this week. Please send your child to school equipped for outdoor recess. We do go outside unless the temperature and/or wind chill are below 0ºF. Please contact the Allen office if you need any assistance with outdoor gear for your child.
Please note that tomorrow is an early release day and students are dismissed at 1:18 PM.
The communication this week will cover the following topics:
Young Fives/Kindergarten Round up and Preschool Open House
We will be hosting our Young Fives/Kindergarten Round Up and Preschool Open House on Thursday, February 9th at 5:30 pm. We encourage children of this age to join their parents as we will start with an information session in the Great Room and then move into activities in the classrooms, gym and library. Current Young Fives students are also encouraged to attend the kindergarten round up.
Each year in the Ann Arbor Public Schools, we celebrate NAAPID (National African American Parent Involvement Day). NAAPID is held annually on the second Monday of February, which is on February 13th this year.
All families are invited to participate in NAAPID by joining us at school at any time during the month of February. You may want to read a story, share a talent, teach the class something new, or share a tradition from your family culture. Some examples could include: playing an instrument, teaching a few words in your home language, showing how to make a craft, etc.
We welcome you to join your child’s classroom during the month of February at a time that works with your schedule and your child’s classroom teacher. If you aren’t able to make it in person, you are also welcome to Zoom into your child’s class, share a video recording, or send a picture or other artifact in with your child.
Each classroom teacher will be sending more information about how you may connect with them to coordinate a time should you be interested and able to join us at school.

Fifty people experiencing homelessness were treated to a hot meal Monday night thanks to some generous A2 STEAM seventh graders. The students put together 50 portable, ready-to-eat meals for the homeless population, including soup heated by portable heaters they created using a chemical reaction much like what is used to heat up hand warmers. .. - AAPS District News
