Tips for Visiting Olson
Allen ISD's Eagle Engagement Night
Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022
6 - 8:30 p.m.
Ereckson Middle School, 450 Tatum Dr., Allen, TX 75013
Here is the required link to register: http://www.allenisd.org/engagementnight
Here are some tips for visiting Olson.
1) Please have your ID ready to show to the camera after you ring the bell.
2) Please keep your ID out to show the receptionist at the reception window.
3) Please DO NOT hold the door open for other parents or visitors. This goes against our nature as we all want to be polite and helpful to one another. However, every person who enters the building needs to show ID prior to entering. Please also be mindful to not let anyone in as you leave the building.
Student and staff safety is our top priority at Olson. Thank you for doing all that you can to help us.

The Character Trait for the month of November is Citizenship
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.
