Dear Van Allen Parents and Guardians:
As we start this week, kindly note this is our Iowa Assessment week for students in Grades 2-5. Students will be completing their Iowa Assessments over a three-day window starting on Tuesday and ending on Thursday.
Your assistance is needed, so that your child is ready for the Iowa Assessments by ensuring your and child is well rested, on time, and encourage your child to do their best, without creating unnecessary stress, simply encourage your child to put forth their best effort.
Last Friday, our winter vacation readers were acknowledged for completing ten days of reading during winter break. Eighty-five students achieved this goal, and were recognized at our morning assembly with a Van Allen Reading Super Bowl football. Congratulations to our winter break readers and to Mrs.Nau for her efforts in organizing this special event for Van Allen students.Last Friday night, three Van Allen students, Brandon Burtlow, Julie Campbell, and Brooklynne Snavely participate in the Southeastern American Choral Director’s Association Honor Choir Festival, as they sang with one hundred students representing twenty-one school at IWU’s Wesleyan Chapel. Their musical performance was truly sensational.
