Principal’s Note

Today, we enjoyed being visited by next year’s kindergarten students as today and tomorrow is our annual KG Round-Up. Hard to believe that we are already talking about next year!

Thank you to our PTA for their efforts in sharing the movie Coco with our school community yesterday afternoon in the gym.

And this is our last and final week of the after-school program for 2nd-5thgraders. Parents are invited to join students either on Tuesday for Kids in the Kitchen, or      IMG_1252Thursday for STEM-Lit to Go.The students will be showcasing what they have learned over the past six weeks. Activities start at 3:30 until 4:30.

And this week, Van Allen students can  earn PRIDE tickets, which can be entered into the prize raffle which will be drawn Friday afternoon. We will also be sending a PRIDE form home where students can earn a PRIDE ticket to enter into the raffle based on showing PRIDE at home.
