Week 12: November 7-11, 2022
Jerry D. Allen Elementary School
Message from Mrs. Zagala
Dear Allen Families,
What an incredible week we had celebrating Halloween, Dia de los Muertos and our Pillars of Respect. I would like to thank all of our parents that joined us of our costume parade. It was such a joy to see so many of our students participate in one of our longest running traditions. This week we also started what I hope will be a new tradition of celebrating Dia de los Muertos. It was very special seeing so many of our students and staff remembering their loved ones that have passed away. This week we also recognized our Pillars of Respect. These are the students that have been identified as their teachers for exemplifying respect.
I wish you a great weekend and I look forward to seeing all students next week.

NISD Learner Profile: November Focus "Communicator"
A collaborator is defined as sharing thoughts, ideas and questions while listening to others.
An effective collaborator:
-Clearly and concisely expresses thoughts, feelings, and ideas
-Communicates through oral, written, and nonverbal avenues effectively
-Listens to the ideas of others with the intent to understand
As we will be working with students on being communicators, we also invite you to extend the learning at home. Each week during November, I will link a child friendly video that is connected to being a communicator. I hope that you and your family are able to view these videos together and learn more about being a communicator.
