This is Saturday is our annual PTA sponsored Kids’ Christmas, and we encourage all of our families to send their children “shop in this special event. Students are led by an elf to fill the shopping list, and the presents are also wrapped! For delightful shopping experience, students from preschool to Grade V are invited to shop at the Van Allen Mall with its many Black Saturday deals.
Also, it’s never too early to mark your calendar as parents and family are invited to the Van Allen for our annual all school sing-along on Tuesday, December 20 starting at 2:30. Also during this event, we will share this year’s Van Allen winter reading program.
