Grades 1-6 Parent Teacher Conferences

We look forward to seeing parents at school October 25 and 27 for parent/teacher conferences. Each conference is scheduled for 10 minutes. We ask that parents respect the 10 minute booking as the teacher's schedules are full these evenings and we don't want other families to have reduced time or miss their conference. 

Book Fair 

The Enchanted Forest Book Fair is this week! On Monday all classes will have an opportunity to view the book fair and make their wish lists. On Tuesday and Wednesday students will have an opportunity to make purchases. Please see the Week-at-a-Glance for each class' shop day. 

The book fair will also be open to parents from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm on both conference evenings, October 25 and October 27. This is an opportunity for parent to do a little early holiday shopping or simply "just because" shopping. The gift of reading is precious!

Parents also have the option to purchase items online. Here is the link that you can use to purchase online

Thanks you in advance for supporting the Glen Allan Library book fair. This is an important fundraiser for our library program,

Halloween at Glen Allan Elementary

We are excited to experience a good old fashioned Halloween experience at school this year! In order to make sure that this event is safe and fun for all here is what you can expect!

Halloween Assembly

We are hard at work preparing for our Halloween assembly in the afternoon on October 31. 

Halloween Costumes

Students are welcome to come dressed in their costumes for the day. Please help us out by making sure that costumes are not too scary/grotesque for our youngest students and that students leave weapons at home for their evening Trick-or-Treating! 

We ask that student costumes allow students to be able to sit in their desks or at their tables as this exciting day will still be a day of learning. We also ask that all inflatable costumes stay at home for trick-or-treating as they do not fit well in desks and unfortunately there have been incidents in the past when those delicate costumes spring a leak and end up getting damaged.

Halloween Treats - Staying Safe

While students may bring a treat or two to school on Halloween for themselves, we ask they they not bring treats for their whole class. We will ensure students have a fun day at school and know they will likely get many treats if they go trick-or-treating in the evening. 

Please remember that we are a Nut Aware school and we request that students not bring food items that contain nuts to school. This is make sure that all of our students are safe! We have Glen Allan students with severe nut allergies. Thank you for your cooperation in making sure everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
