President’s Message:

It has been a pleasure to serve alongside so many caring and generous people at Allenwood as PTG President for the 2017-2018 school year. I would like to thank everyone that I have worked with while serving on the board during these last two years and the various committees over the past several years for their kindness, dedication and friendship. I am proud to have helped facilitate wish list items like the official Allenwood School flag that hangs on display in the gym and the replacement of the refrigerator in the Custodian Office. It was a pleasure to spruce up the hallway showcases and bulletin boards with fresh artwork for our students to enjoy. We were able to obtain much needed support from the District on having the courtyard overgrowth removed in addition to other items with the Operations Department. This year the PTG wanted to ensure access to our most current information and news and launched our PTG website, started publishing a monthly newsletter, began using Remind text notifications in addition to maintaining our current PTG Facebook page.
Our Parent Teacher Group provides funding and/or coordinates support and volunteers for several programs at the school that help keep Allenwood the school we love. The funds we raised this year supported field trips and assemblies, staff appreciation week, field day, extra classroom needs and more. As a school community, we enjoyed the B.Y.O.P Trunk or Treat, our first Valentine’s Dance, performance of Jukebox Time Machine by our Theater Club, Science Fair/Art Show and Book Fairs!
Thank you, Allenwood, for helping to make our time as volunteers productive and worthwhile. Our PTG has been fortunate to count many successes during our fundraisers and community events due to the consistent commitment of our students, staff and parents. Having a supportive Principal in Dr. O’Connell certainly helped maintain the Dragon Spirit!
Congratulations to all our 5th graders and best of luck on your journey to WIS. To ALL of our Allenwood students, you are an AMAZING group of kids!
I’m pleased to announce the PTG Executive Board for the 2018- 2019 School Year. President-Megan McCay, Vice President-Krystyn Gallant, 2nd Vice President-Lauren Galok, Treasurer-Tory Tchilinguirian, and Secretary-Meghan Lakeland. Stay in touch with us through our PTG website, or on the Allenwood Elementary PTG Facebook page.
Have a safe and happy summer Dragons!
Warm Regards,
Kristin Coman, PTG President 2017-2018
