New Principal

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this newsletter of introduction to you as the newly appointed principal of Hutchinson STEM Magnet School at Allen. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead such a positive and supportive school! Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue Allen's success by building strong relationships with parents, students, and the community.

This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students through design and discovery. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - students, staff, and parents - are excited to be here! My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Allen meet their goals and have a successful school year!

All are welcome to come to Allen on August 1st from 11:00-7:00 to enroll for this school year. If you are a returning family, you are welcome to use our computers to enroll online.

Birthday Lunch

Again this school year, we will be celebrating student birthdays once a month. This replaces the former tradition of bringing treats to the classroom.
