Summer Academies for students entering grades 8-12: Students that are now in 7th through 11th grade need to find an academy that interests them and apply. This is a wonderful opportunity for students who think that college isn’t for them; these are hands on, fun-filled academies. Students will find out that STEM is exciting and fun! There are commuter and residential academies-they will get to experience what college is like. Please encourage and help them apply. The institutions will contact the students who are accepted around mid-May.

Please encourage your students to apply, share this link: Free Summer Academies for rising 8th-12th graders

jh/HS FOOD PANTRY

Please take advantage of this program if you need assistance. Allen JH/HS is teamed up with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma with the help of the Chickasaw Nation to provide a food pantry for students in grades 6-12. The purpose of the Food Pantry is to provide students with extra food for the weekend who might not otherwise have food when they cannot eat at school. We served up to 60 students when we were first hit with the pandemic in March and continued through May. We have been able to replenish our pantry and are ready to help out anyone in need. We also have toiletries such as deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, personal products and a few other items that people in our community have donated to help our students out. Please answer the following questionnaire if you think that your student(s) may qualify for this program. Again, we want to help and this is confidential. (If you know of a student in need, you may recommend them using this same survey.) The questionnaire is sent only to Mrs. Costner. You must meet the criteria of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to receive food. The toiletries are not part of the Food Bank. Once your application is received, you will be contacted.
