Welcome to Allen-
Home of the Vikings!
Welcome to the 2013-14 school year at Allen Elementary School. Now in my second year as Allen's principal, one of my goals for the year is to make this website a usable, accurate, and living communication tool for our school and community. So, to start, here comes some "useful" information:
Maiben Park - Saturday, August 24, 2013 - 10 AM -2 PM
On Saturday, the district will hold its annual Back-to-School Fair for the entire district at Maiben Park in Burlington from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. At the Allen table, class lists will be posted, the Allen TEAM will be there to welcome families and invite them to join the TEAM. and several staff members will be on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you might have. (Unfortunately, I will not be at this event - I am sorry for those I will miss.)
Touring the School / Community Closet - Tuesday, September 3, 2013 - 1-4 PM
If you would like to get a peek in your child's classroom and walk through the school, the building will be open on Tuesday, September 3 from 1:0 until 4:00 PM. Teachers will be working in the building getting ready for school to start the following day, but will be happy to say hello and meet you and your student.
Also, the Community Closet will be open in the gym. The Community Closet is a free clothing distribution program at Allen School. We will have gently used clothing available to our families for boys, girls, infants, toddlers, men, and women.
School Starts Wednesday,
September 4 at 8:50 AM
Note: This is a slightly earlier start than last school year.
I am very excited for the new school year to begin. Thanks to everyone who has supported Allen School over the years. We look forward to your help and support again this year. It is great to be in a SECOND year as your principal.
