Hello Allenwood Families! Hope everyone had some time to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend!
Thank you to everyone who supported our Dining Out Initiative for October at Bubbakoo Burrito’s. Next month, FINS on November 14th. Thank you to Courtney Koblan for organizing.
Thank you to everyone who supported our Fall Yankee Candle fundraiser. It was a huge success and we could not have done it without your support and the dedication of Megan McCay, who graciously coordinated the fundraiser. Pick up is on November 17th. Still need to order? Yankee Candle Orders can be placed until December 31 online and shipped directly to the buyers house. Please include group number: 990018512 when placing your order. Thank you all for your support!
This week our Dragon’s Den volunteers helped our children while they shopped at our school store. Thank you to our volunteers and to Andrea Nolfi and Anna White for making shopping so festive with all the Halloween goodies!

In the mood to clean out your closets? We can help! A clothing drive has been scheduled for November 17. Details can be found here.
Just in case you missed it: Last week the Board shared the new printable school notes that were made possible by the creativity and willingness of one of our Allenwood parents, Laura Fallon. A HUGE thank you for creating these school notes for the PTG! The printable was created to make sending notifications into school and to our children’s teachers quick, cute and hassle-free. These notes were designed to print on standard U.S. letterhead (8.5×11 paper). Just download, save, print, cut the sheet in half and write in your details! Keep a stack of these notes printed and ready for use! Download here.
The Executive Board is seeking a Corresponding Secretary! Interested in more information on the position? Contact Kristin Coman, firstname.lastname@example.org
