Letter to Parents
Welcome to a new school year! I am so excited to inform you about our counseling program at Allentown Elementary. Our program will focus on the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Citizenship and Caring. Good character does not develop spontaneously. Rather, it is the result of conscientious efforts to instill and reinforce ethical values in a way that makes them second nature. Activities on Knowledge of Self and Others, Career and Educational Development will also be addressed.
We will continue with our GATOR Kid Program this year. GATOR Kids are students who display true character traits. Those students will be given special recognition over the school's intercom system along with a certificate, pencil, and T-shirt. Each month we will post our new GATOR Kids. I will also submit our GATOR Kids pictures to the newspaper. Click on Photo Album above to see their pictures.
Allentown will host another Career Fair this year for our students. If you would like to participate in our Annual Career Fair, please contact me at the number listed below. Information will be sent home later in the school year explaining more details. We would love to have many different careers to expose to our students. Check out Career Fair pictures from last year in my photo album.
Amelia Firle will once again be assisting at Allentown with the counseling program. Mrs. Firle will be at Allentown on Wednesdays and Thursdays to conduct counseling classes with our students. She will also be available every other Friday for consultations.
Mrs. Firle and I are looking forward to a great year of working with the students at Allentown. We are available for individual and small group counseling on various topics with students. Please feel free to call us at 221-1001 with any concerns for your child.
Remonia V. Walker and Amelia Firle
