Dear Allen Families,
It is hard to believe that we will be entering the month of March next week. Please continue to send your student to school every day and on time as important learning is still happening in all classrooms. We appreciate your support!

Our district values your feedback! Allen Elementary is excited to invite you to participate in our Family Survey. We are currently surveying families in order to gain insight into your perception of our school and district effectiveness. To help us learn how to make your child’s schooling experience as positive and beneficial as possible, we need your feedback.
The survey shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete and will be a valuable source of information for us as we work to make improvements in our school and district. Families should take the survey focusing on the experience of their eldest child.
You may complete the survey online between Monday, February 13th and Friday, March 3rd using a computer, tablet, or smartphone by visiting the site https://surveys.panoramaed.com/nisd/all106.
We thank you in advance for your thoughtful responses. If you have any questions about the survey administration, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 210-397-0800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

NISD Learner Profile: February Focus "Leader"
A leader models the way while encouraging others.
An effective leader:
-Demonstrates positive and motivating behaviors
-Unites the team under a shared vision
-Inspires action toward reaching goals
As we will be working with students on being creators, we also invite you to extend the learning at home. Each week during February, I will link a child friendly video that is connected to being a critical thinker. I hope that you and your family are able to view these videos together and learn more about being a critical thinker.
