A Message from Mrs. Zagala

Dear Allen Families,

I hope that you and your families are doing well, as always this bulletin contains a lot of very important information and I ask that you take a few minutes to review it carefully. We had another great week at Allen Elementary and it is hard to believe that we have completed the first nine weeks of learning and that report cards were sent home on Friday. I encourage you to review your child’s report carefully and if you have any questions about your child’s academic process, please contact your child’s teacher.

We are looking forward to a fun-filled Red Ribbon Week for the Week of October 25-29th. Your students are invited to participate in the theme days for this coming week. On Friday, October 29th all students are invited to wear their costumes to school and participate in our Character Parade at 2:00. Parents and visitors are also invited to join us for the parade. All visitors will need to obtain a visitors pass so we encourage you to arrive at least a few minutes early. Visitors will need a driver's license or state issued ID to get their pass. For everyone’s safety, no visitors will be allowed without a visitors pass. To help you obtain your pass a little faster on Friday we encourage you to fill out the form in this week’s Bulletin.

Our students celebrated all of their hard work during the first nine weeks of school with SFA Fun Day and our first Reading Event. Students learned about the Spectacled Owl, Bearded Dragon, Brazilian Armadillo, and the Monkey Tailed Lizard. I encourage you to check in with your child and ask about their experience during the Barn Hill Preserve Animal Presentation.

Finally, I ask for your assistance with after school dismissal. We have so many wonderful families that live on Dumont who have been impacted by our dismissal. They respectfully ask that we be good neighbors and do not block their driveways as you are waiting on Dumont to enter our parking lot. We want these families to be able to enter and exit their driveways safely during our dismissal.

Thank you for all you do and for all of your support. I look forward to another great week at Allen Elementary!

Eagles Rock!

Mrs. Zagala

Costumes should be appropriate for elementary school-aged children and not have any inappropriate graphics depicting violence or death. Costumes should also not include any kind of weapon prop. Any students with inappropriate costumes will be asked to change in to their regular clothes and will not be able to participate in the parade. Parents are invited to join us for this special event.

All adults will be required to get a Visitor's Pass in order to watch the parade. To obtain a visitor's pass, adults will need to present a valid drivers license or another state issued Identification card. Parents are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes early to obtain their visitors pass. For a faster check in, parents and all adult guests are encouraged to complete the RSVP form in the link below. By completing this form ahead of time it allows us to run your ID ahead of time and have your visitor's pass pre-printed. In order to have your visitors pass preprinted please complete the form by Thursday, October 28th at 12:00 PM.

If you have any objections to your child participating or viewing the parade, please let their teacher know so that other arrangements can be made for them.
