Happy New Year Allenwood Families and Friends!
Hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday recess! In the week leading up to break, the PTG organized and wrapped in bundles the 140 Scholastic books we purchased, surprising each of our 22 homeroom teachers at Allenwood, adding to their classroom libraries and show our thanks for their hard work and dedication to teaching our children all year long! We also purchased and donated narrative nonfiction and sports stories packs for 18 new Scholastic books to be added to the shelves of the school library!
Skittles first visit at Allenwood was well received and thank you to Dr. O’Connell for allowing Skittles to stop by! Keep watch for info on Skittles next appearance at our January Dining Out on 1/21 at MJ*s!
Thank you to all that attended our first Family Fun event over the break bouncing all that holiday energy out at House of Bounce. More fun events to follow, watch for updates!
