“Commitment to Community” Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

Please join Olson in Commitment to Community Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive benefiting families in Allen! We are collecting nonperishable food items for families in our community that would not otherwise have food during Thanksgiving. We will be collecting all the items that a family would need to enjoy a meal and each other: canned corn, green beans, peas, yams, cranberry sauce, pie filling, stuffing mix, gravy mix, cornbread mix, potato flakes, mac and cheese, box pie crust mix, dessert mix and foil pans.


Please bring your donations to your school between Wednesday, November 3rd – Tuesday, November 16th. The collection table is located by the stairs closest to the front office.


Your kindness and generosity help bring joy families in our community. We appreciate you support in helping our community!

The Character Trait for the month of November is Citizenship!


Citizenship is defined as the qualities that a person is expected to have as a responsible member of a community. We demonstrate our citizenship by showing respect, honesty, compassion, courage, etc.

Good citizens are willing to learn, work hard, protect the environment, help others, respect people and property, and are considerate. Each of us are members of multiple communities – home, school, local community, and digitally.

This month, talk to your children about how they can be good citizens in the different areas, as well as have them provide examples. Also discuss with them their rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

Evening Dance One 6:00-7:30 pm Gr 1-3

Evening Dance Two 8:30-10:00 pm Gr 4-7

The ages and grades are recommendations only; however, the dance format and music selections will be geared towards the targeted age group. Registration is limited this year and is held on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets are dance specific. Cancellations will be accepted and a refund will be issued as long as the cancellation is received by noon on Nov. 29, 2021.

New this year, each person attending must buy a ticket; we no longer offer "Couple Tickets”. If you have questions please call or email Sandra Lovesey at 972-727-0502 or sandra.lovesey@allenisd.org.

AS THE WEATHER CHANGES:

Parents, please have your students check the LOST & FOUND as they are traveling by that area. We found some pretty nice jackets, sweaters & lots of water bottles...

RISE & SHINE: MORNING ARRIVAL AT OLSON

Way to go, parents, on getting your kiddos to school on time! Our number of tardies has steadily decreased over the past couple of weeks. As a reminder, students arriving after the bell rings at 7:45 am will need to be signed in by a parent/guardian at the office.


In addition, please do not drop-off your student before 7:30 am. We do not have staff available to supervise until 7:30. Thank you!
