HUGE thanks to Zalat Pizza Allen for donating some delicious pizza for the Watch D.O.G.S. Pizza Night Kick-Off last night πŸ• Be sure to keep them in mind for your next pizza night (they have Ben & Jerry's too!). 


Our incredible Olson teachers were treated to a salsa & queso bar sponsored by Uncle Julio’s in Allen & Olson PTA. Uncle Julio’s donated 5 gift cards for our staff drawing. πŸ«• The lucky winners were Ms. Thompson, Mrs. Jimenez, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Grace & Mrs. Profitt. A littleπŸ§€cheesyπŸ§€, but in “queso” you didn’t know Olson staff is the best!!!


Kudos & THANK YOU to the PTA Book Fair Chair Katrina Wallace for delivering 2 carts of Scholastic catalog products to 14 teachers, the library, and AIM last week. Each teacher received $100 Scholastic dollars to buy items for their classroom and she placed & delivered all of the orders! Wait until you see what she has in store for the Fall Book Fair πŸ“šπŸŽ‰


πŸ₯³ Thank you to the volunteers that helped decorate the doors of our wonderful teachers (Gallus and Burak) celebrating huge milestone birthdays! 


🌟 Thanks to all who have made generous donations for Stock the Lounge. The Olson staff enjoyed snacks set up in the lounge to celebrate the first full week of school. πŸŽ‰πŸ¦¦ There is still time to contribute here


β˜•οΈ Thanks so much to the PTA Hospitality & Staff Appreciation Coordinators for organizing/setting up a Kindergarten Tears & Cheers event. Happy to report that the leftovers did not go to waste. They were left in the staff lounge for a nice treat on the first Monday back in school!


🎈 Thank you, Yard Card Queen of East Allen, for the sign on the 1st day of school! 


πŸ˜‹ The PTA treated the staff to Dinners by DeLaine for lunch the day of Meet the Teacher! DeLaine laid it all out beautifully and also donated a gift code for a full size meal. The lucky winner was our registrar Terri Rosales! 



🎨 From the PTA President: THANK YOU to the dozens of adults & students that helped Deck the Halls of the entire school for 3 days before the year began. All of the staff were so appreciative! 


πŸ“¦ From the PTA VP Fundraising: THANK YOU to the handful of volunteers that spent 5 hours delivering 234 pre-ordered school supply packs to classrooms and 5 more hours sorting/folding/delivering 194 pre-ordered field trip shirts. You set so many students up for success!
