Only 3 more weeks until Summer!


I've been out to several of the campuses the last couple of weeks doing the end of the year evaluations and I just want you all to know what a great job you are doing. Kids are happy, parents are happy and it couldn't happen without your hard work.

  • Straight 8 training will be held in Allen ISD on Saturday, May 21st. Time: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Where: Allen ISD Central Office 612 East Bethany Dr. Allen 75002. Carpools and lunch will be provided. This training is required for all NEW Summer staffers as well as any returning staff who need the training hours. All returning summer staff must have 15 training hours. This is also a paid training event. Please RSVP to Karen if you are attending by Monday, May 16th. We need firm numbers to plan for lunch and carpools.
  • Early Release is the last day of school, June 3rd. Please let you Site Coordinator know if you will NOT be able to be at work by 11:30 a.m. Site Coordinators- please check with your parents to know who will be in attendance on June 3rd. If we do need to order you an Aesop sub, please let us know ASAP.
  • Save the Dates: Please check the Upcoming Events section as I have added the August training dates. Plan your summer vacations accordingly!
