Big Congratulations to Allenwood’s Educators of the Year!

Thank you to all that attended our January PTG meeting!
Message from Allenwood School:
“In an effort to ensure all students’ safety during dismissal, please make every effort to plan ahead and send in a note. Classroom teachers and school secretaries may NOT see emails prior to the end of the day. In addition, whenever possible, please do not pick up your child from the Main Office between 3:00 and 3:15; instead, use private pick up.”
- Printable Allenwood School Notes
Looking for a fast and convenient way to send a note into school with your Allenwood student?
This 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!
We hope these help to make your school-note-sending/receiving that much easier!

It’s that time of year again…we hope everyone has been clipping Box Tops all year to earn lots of money for our wonderful school!

Box Tops should be sent in a baggie or envelope labeled, “BOXTOPS,” with your child’s teacher’s name. The winning class this year will receive a luau party with the Kona Ice Truck this spring! Any questions, please feel free to reach out to Melissa Cullen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy clipping, Dragons!
