Allen Mustangs,

We would like to thank each and every one of you for a very successful beginning to our 2015-16 school year.  Success is not achieved by one individual; it is always a group effort!

THANK YOU to our students for coming to school “ready to learn” each and every day. It is that passion for learning that drives our student achievement.

THANK YOU to our parents for trusting us with your students. It is through that trust and communication that we are able to provide the best possible education for your children.

THANK YOU to our teachers and staff for being devoted and dedicated to preparing our students for both the present and future success! Please know that hard work is admired and respected!

THANK YOU to the Allen Elementary community. Our community partners are always there to support our school, our families and our staff.

Finally, THANK YOU to our students! Yes, we are thanking them twice because they bring their smiles, youthful energy, laughs, personalities, and love for learning.

Without our students, ALLEN ELEMENTARY would be nothing!
