The vacation clock is quickly ticking down to Monday, January 5. Do note that for the first day back, school starts, our first bell will ring at 8:15
When our doors open, we have a few exciting events listed on our school calendar.
Thursday, January 8th, is the All-Elementary Wrestling Night at the high school gymnasium with a start time of 6:30, as our Panthers face Mediapolis. This night is a great night for our students, as they have the wonderful opportunity to watch our high school wrestlers in action, but also, prizes are raffled to students, as part of the night’s activities.
Kindly mark your calendar for Friday, January 16 at 2:00, as Van Allen will host its Reading Super Bowl party for the 2015 school year. This event is a celebration of our winter reading project, and all students completing and returning the reading log will receive a miniature Van Allen football.
We want to encourage our students to continue reading during the vacation break, and remember to bring back their reading bags, books, and of course the reading logs when we re-open our doors.
Enjoy your vacation, and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
