On September 15th, Allen Academy 6th graders, led by MS Science teacher Stephanie Hanover, traveled to Baytown to take part in phase one of the Get Hip to Habitat! program. During this trip, they harvested native estuarine marsh grass, which they will bring back to Allen Academy to cultivate, monitoring the growth and health of the grasses through testing and maintaining the proper environment. Next spring, these same students will take a trip to Galveston to transplant their matured grasses to a restoration site. This is yet another awesome example of how Allen Academy teachers work hard to provide authentic learning opportunities for our students!

Parenting is hard. In fact, sometimes you question if you’re doing it right at all. Couple that with the fact that it may be exponentially more difficult than it was even just 10 years ago, and ascending the mountain of parental success can look downright insurmountable.
As we celebrate the establishment of Allen Academy 132 years ago, our students, faculty, and families took the time to recognize the school's history and growth. Thank you to our guest speakers who took the time to join us for today's Founders' Day Assembly: local historian and storyteller Fran Hooks, Allen Military Academy alum Mike Akins, and Rusty Baker, Allen Academy alum from the Class of '98. We were so fortunate to have all of you with us as we look ahead to another great year!
Preschool has had a wonderful start to the school year and we loved receiving so many hugs and kind words as we welcomed everyone back for another wonderful year!
