Dear Van Allen Parents:

Last week, our preschool enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to be visited by Peg + and CatScreen Shot 2016-03-07 at 2.49.09 PM along with Trista Peitzman. Their visit discussed the value of watching good television. A special thank you once again to Iowa Public Television and Trista Peitzman for offering this rich opportunity to our youngest students.

Also last week, we learned that our wonderfully talented and experienced Grade one teacher, Jane Dotson is putting down her chalk and retiring at the end of this year. We would like to thank Mrs. Dotson for the wonderful 24 years of marvelous teaching. Thank you. Mrs. Dotson!

Yesterday the Youth Art show opened its doors at the Henry County Courthouse, and I would encourage all families to stop by and enjoy the colorful display of art created by our talented students. The show will not disappoint

This week there are two student events on our school calendar. First we have tonight’s Grade Five Band Concert starting at 7 PM at the high school, and on Thursday we had the elementary choir concert, same start time and same location. All are welcome!!
