News Blog Category - News This year, along with the holiday music that we always enjoy so much, some of our talented young artists at Allen Elementary were in the spotlight at the annual holiday program too!

Winter art from our kindergarten and first grade students was on display. (Thanks to the Marion High School Art Department for lending us display boards to make this special display possible!)

It is such a fun time to bring together our families to celebrate the holiday season and witness our students sharing their talents with others. 

Take a look at some of the scenes, and click on any photo to view the full gallery!
