Below are some reminders, news, and upcoming events to make note of:
Jump Rope for Heart Kickoff!
Monday, 2/5 be sure to wear or red to show your support!
Allenwood School students are celebrating their 14th year participating in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart (JRFH) campaign is led by our physical education teacher, Jennifer Salt. The campaign is a national effort to raise money and help make a difference in the lives of those suffering from and living with heart disease. It also raises awareness for the importance of good nutrition and fitness and teaches children to make the right health decisions.
The students have been working hard to perfect their jump roping skills in anticipation of the big kickoff event on Monday, 2/5 at which time JRFH campaign envelopes and online instruction for joining the Allenwood team page will be sent home. The campaign will run throughout the month of February and close on March 5th. Please have your students show their support by wearing pink or red to school on jump day and throughout the month of February.

Meeting will be held Thursday, 2/8 in the cafeteria at 7pm

From Allenwood Administration and Nurses Office:
We would like to stress the importance of food and allergy awareness of the numerous and various (food and non-food) allergies that are present with our students. In an effort to continue an environment where all children can feel included in celebrations, please refrain from sending in candy or any edible treats with your Valentine cards. Thank you for your continued support in keeping Allenwood a safe and healthy environment for all our students.
