Principal’s Notes

Dear Van Allen Parents:  

This Wednesday, September 16 is student Photo Day for students, as student photos will be taken on Wednesday, September 16th. And if your child is ill this day, remakes will be retaken on Wednesday, October 14.

Also, each Wednesday, Brittany Nichols, the Mt. Pleasant Children’s Librarian visits Van Allen, from 7:45 to 8:00, so students may check out books to take home. To take a book home, students must have a Mt. Pleasant Library card, and Ms. Nichols carries application forms with her during her visits so students can easily apply for a library card, or parent can stop at the Mt. Pleasant Library to obtain the application.

As students enter the gym, and drop off their bags, lively music greets students when they enter the gym, which transform into a tornado of student feet circle the gym until 7:55. At 7:55, students return to their class lines to await the morning announcement. If parents drop off their children, you are most welcome to join us for the morning walk.

Wednesday, September 23 is our scheduled Paired Reading Training starting at 9:00 a.m. We are continually looking for parents to help our student refine their reading skills. If you would like to assist students achieve reading success, we can always benefit from locating additional reading volunteers. If interested, please call the elementary Office at 385-7771
