This week is our special week, as VA students will be performing in our annual spring concert, which is being held in the VA gym for KG to Grade 2 students, as there concert starts at 6:30, and for Grades 3-5 students, their concert starts at 7:30.        IMG_1242

Also, this Friday is an early dismissal as school ends at 1:30.

And kindly note  kindergarten classes  will not be held on Monday, April 23 and Tuesday, April 24 at Van Allen , as these two days are dedicated to Kindergarten Round-up in preparation for next year’s KG students

As the weather changes, and hopefully warms-up, we look at ways to keep our students engaged and excited about school, so we have developed a student recess program as activities are varied daily.

Bee Readers!!

3-5th grade students at Van Allen enjoyed a day at the ballpark today to celebrate reaching their reading goal. 4th and 5th grade students each read a novel of their choice, and presented a book talk to their peers. Although the Burlington Bees did not win, our students were all winners for setting and reaching their goal!!


The students in all of the grade levels have been working hard on their concert music. The younger students will be singing traditional “silly nonsence” songs. The upper grades will be performing traditional American Folk Songs.
