LOLLIPOPS FOR LOVE
Love Week is February 13th-17th. Love Week is a week-long service project sponsored by the Allen High School. Each year a member of an organization within our community that faces a need is chosen as the LOVE WEEK recipient.
This year’s recipient is Allen Community Outreach (ACO). Allen Community Outreach provides a wide variety of services and programs to support families.
All funds raised during Love Week will be used to benefit Allen Community Outreach (ACO). There are various forms of fundraising this year, including purchasing Love Week items, “The $1 Donation Campaign,” and spirit nights at local restaurants each night of the week.

Contacting the Counselor, Mrs. Oliver
Hi, my name is Nicole Oliver, I am Olson’s School Counselor. I can be reached via phone or email, at 972-562-1800 or Nicole.Oliver@allenisd.org.
I am available to students for a variety of needs and they are welcome to see me any time they need. I am also available to help parents. Please reach out to me any time with questions or concerns.
The Character Trait for the month of February is Friendship
Friendship is spending time with someone you trust and enjoy, and accepts you as you are.
Friendship can come in many forms. Some of your friends may be from another school, while others may be from your neighborhood or activity that you are involved in. You can also have friends within your family. The friends your child chooses are critical influences in their lives. Ask your child what qualities he or she looks for in a friend and why it is important to have friends you can trust.
After talking about true friends, plan a weekend this month to host a fun slumber party with the friends your child most trusts and enjoys. Plan the party together with your child, then sit back and enjoy watching him or her grow healthy relationships!
Calling All D.O.G.S.!
Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is a program from the National Center for Fathering, whose purpose is to provide positive male role models for students by being present in education.

FROM Nurse Jimenez
To 6th grade parents,
In order to comply with entry requirement for 7th Grade, students will be required to have the following immunizations:
Tdap (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis)
Meningococcal (Must clearly indicate: MCV4, Menveo, Menactra)
I will be putting monthly reminders in your student’s backpack if I do not have documentation of the required immunizations. If you do not receive a reminder, your child is good to register for 7th grade. Please provide this documentation ASAP.
Students cannot start 7th grade without these immunizations. Tdap and meningococcal vaccine for all 6th graders going to 7th grade will be due by May 12, 2023. You may send your updated shot record to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your attention on this matter.
