•         PARENT LETTER:



                                                                                                                               August 8, 2013

    Dear Parents,                                                                                                                       


         Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!  My name is Debbie Allen or better known as “Mrs. D. Allen.” I am excited to be your child’s Third Grade teacher this new school year. I hope you and your family had a wonderful summer and enjoyed your time together as I did with my family. 

         As we continue our journey as an International Baccalaureate World School here at Concord, your

    child will have an exciting year of inquiry based learning and exploring.

         I look forward to meeting you and your child at our Back-To-School Orientation night on Thursday, August 15.   Please make every effort to attend this very important meeting. I will be discussing very important school/classroom information that will include classroom expectations, rules and procedures, homework, state standards, curriculum, and communication. Many forms will be given out at this time

    for you to complete at home.  My classroom is the first classroom on the right as you go down the Second Grade hallway. My classroom number is 122.

         I look forward to meeting you and your child on Thursday, August 15, 2013!
