Dear Ethan Allen Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to a New School Year! My entire team and I are excited and ready to safely welcome all of our students back to Ethan Allen for the 2023-2024 school year! This year you will receive a letter in the mail for your scholar(s), informing you of where they should report on the first day of school. We are already gearing up for an incredible new school year and we look forward to supporting our students and their families. Daily attendance is a must! We will work to promote the whole child with a key focus on social-emotional learning and improvement in the academic areas of literacy, math, and science. We have many opportunities for our students that we will share early on. Please be on the lookout for intramural opportunities and please let us know what is of interest to you! We are proud of our ability to provide all students with a full-service cafeteria, a new gymnasium, and upgraded classrooms. Our work is not done, but we are making progress!
Families, we need your help! Be a part of the solution! Our goals are aligned to the Board Goals and Guardrails of the School District of Philadelphia and we cannot fully meet them without you as our partner. Our entire team stands ready to meet and exceed your expectations this year. Join us as a part of the solution to ensure that every student is cared for every day and that each of them realize and meet their own potential!
We invite all of our families to attend our Back-to-School Night on Thursday, September 14, 2023 from 4:00-6:00 PM. All of us at Ethan Allen look forward to welcoming students back to school in person on Tuesday, September 5, 2023. School begins promptly at 8:15 AM.
Please email any concerns/suggestions to

Dr. C. Houston, Principal
