November 21 BUZZ

Wow! Thank you to all our students, families and staff who have already contributed to our school's Strathcona Food Bank Drive. What an incredible display of kindness during our Reach out for Kindness and Anti-Bullying week. The bins are filling up and we still have 3 days left for donations to be brought into the school. The final day for donations is Wednesday, November 23. For a list of top items needed, read the food drive article in this post.

This last full week of November brings us Kindergarten conferences and report cards. More information about report cards can be found in the articles below.

It's a great week to have a great week!

Report Cards are Coming

Term 1 report cards will be published November 25. On Friday report cards will be available through the PowerSchool Parent Portal—simply log in to your account and click on the “Report Card” button in the lefthand sidebar. 

The report card marks are reflective of what would be expected of students in their grade at this time of year and is based on curricular outcomes covered to this point in the year. 

There have been some significant changes in the math curriculums for Kindergarten to Grade 3 this year. Here are links to summary documents of those changes. K-3 Math Curriculum Changes And Comparison

Glen Allan's 3rd Annual Strathcona Food Bank Drive - Reminder

We are very excited to announce Glen Allan’s 3rd Annual Campaign to Support the Strathcona Food Bank!

                    Wednesday, November 16 – Wednesday, November 23, 2022

The Strathcona Food Bank is a charitable organization operated by volunteers and a volunteer Board of Directors.  They rely on donations to provide food assistance to those in need in Sherwood Park and rural Strathcona County.

The top needed items are:

  • No-sugar-added canned fruit and fruit snack cups
  • No-sugar-added fruit juice, both 1 liter and juice boxes
  • Canned mushrooms and mixed vegetables
  • Low sodium broth, 1 liter tetra
  • Ready to serve soup, chili or stew
  • Box Macaroni and cheese (such as KD or Annie's)
  • Personal hygiene items including feminine hygiene, bar soap and shampoo
  • Dry Dog and Cat Food (we are struggling to meet the demand for pet food so we would really appreciate it if donors would be willing to donate to support furry companions).

Thank you in advance for your kind and generous donations of any size!

Let’s see if we can match or beat our donations from 2020 and 2021!In 2020 Glen Allan Elementary donated 1600 pounds of food/other donations, and in 2021, we donated 932.5 pounds of donations!! GO GLEN ALLAN!!
