Note from the Principal

Dear Van Allen Parents:

 This will be a very special week at Van Allen as we have some unique events.

  • Teju the Story Teller: Celebrating Black History Month will be joining us on Wednesday at 10;00 in the VA gym for student sin Grade 3-5. And a special thank you to Iowa Wesleyan for providing this opportunity.
  • Then we are celebrating Suess’ Birthday with a celebration on Thursday, March 2 from 9-9:30 as each class will receive a special visitor to read one of Dr. Suess’s books to the class.

Last, we need your assistance, as we received an email from the Great Prairie AEA, requesting parental input for their technology survey. If you would be willing to take a few minutes to respond to this survey, this would be greatly appreciated.

“Please find your districts link to this years annual Bright Bytes surveys. There is one link to connect to all surveys. Participants of the survey will then select who they are- Teacher/Adm, Student, or Parent. They will then select the school they are associated with and begin the survey. Surveys will remain open through March 31, 2017. Students in grades 3 through 12 are asked to participate, as well as teacher and parents.

Mt.Pleasant School District

Last, next week is our Iowa Assessment week, so we will start testing on Monday morning, so kindly have your child ready for success by having your him/her at school promptly every morning, as this simplifies the testing process for us, but more importantly for your child, as she/she will not have to removed from anther class to complete the make-up, and not missing a class, to complete a make-up, is less stressful for the student.
