Dear Van Allen Community,
This is a very special week at Van Allen, as parent-teacher comes as a scheduled for Thursday, November 3 starting at 4 PM until 8 PM. Then we will continue with parent conferences on Tuesday, November 8 at the same time. This new time format is a pilot to see if these evening conference times better serve our parent community. If you’re unsure what time is your scheduled conference, kindly contact the office for an update. Conference times are tightly scheduled, and our goal is to have 100% communication with our parents
Also during parent conference nights, students will be soliciting volunteers as looking for donors to contribute to our third annual Blood Drive.
Thank you for your support with our PTA Box Top collection; we appreciate all the wonderful support received from the PTA. In this photo, the PTA provided funds to purchase this storage shelf, which we will use organize student clothing, so when a students require a change of clothes, will have clothing options here at school rather than needing to call the parents to leave home/work to bring a fresh set of garments.
This week also starts our Scholastic Book Fair, and families are kindly invited to visit was the selection of available titles.
Today we celebrated the special day in our children’s lives with a small costume parade. Here are a few photos, but I was unable to snap photos more student photos, as I was away from the building.
