Allen Receives Martha Holden Jennings Grant

Allen School News, Old News No Comments

Congratulations to Allen Elementary’s Mrs. Jenny Domo for receiving a $3000 grant to help supplement the Leader in Me Program at Allen Elementary.  Leadership Leads to Lighthouse is a proposal to designed to support the existing Leader In Me Program at Allen Elementary. The Leader In Me program by Steven Covey was fully implemented at Allen in 2010. This program was brought to us by the Chillicothe/Ross County Chamber of Commerce and more than twenty other local businesses in the Chillicothe area. Our community has contributed over $80,000 to support the Leader In Me. The program emphasizes the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey and Quality Tools.

The goals of the program are to develop leaders with 21st Century skills. It enables educators to unleash each child’s full potential. The tools and resources in the Leader In Me Program help “Inspire greatness, one child at a time. (Steven R. Covey) This leadership training program integrates the Chillicothe City School’s core curriculum. It has become a huge part of the culture at Allen Elementary School  and it is producing improved results each year.

Although Allen is seeing these results in terms of discipline and personal levels of achievement with the learners, the ultimate goal of Leader In Me schools is achieve Lighthouse School status. We, at Allen, are committed to achieving this status in the 2012-2013 school year.

Lighthouse Schools must meet and sustain nine criteria in order to achieve and maintain Lighthouse School status. These nine criteria include establishing a Lighthouse Team, having a Leadership Environment, integrating instruction and curriculum, staff collaboration, student leadership, parent involvement, goal tracking, measurable results, and Leadership Events.  Thanks to the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation for seeing the merit of this valuable program and helping us with their grant.

Allen Leaders Appreciate Our Volunteers!

They are volunteers with the COAD Grandparents Program. This organization provides senior citizen volunteers for schools and other non-profit organizations. The Franchuks are not only a great help to students and staff at Allen, but they are also positive, leadership role models for all to follow.

Allen’s 2nd Graders Perform “Pushing Up The Sky”

Allen School News, Old News No Comments

Mrs. Blakey’s second grade class performed a play called Pushing Up The Sky. We did this play at Allen Elementary School in the Chillicothe City Schools in Chillicothe, Ohio. The class put the play on in front of the first grade and one lucky Kindergarten class. It was on Friday, April 5, 2013. The play was about the sky being too close to the ground, so the wise chief said that they should synergize to work together to raise it. The characters worked together as a team to raise the sky.
