Welcome grade 5 students! I hope and trust that your summer was full of exciting adventures! I look forward to hearing and sharing stories with each of you. Before this year begins I would love to share with you a few things about myself to help you get to know me better.

Miss Allan’s Home Town The place I call home is called Withrow, which is located forty minutes west of Red Deer. It is a small subdivision of houses in the middle of the country. I have lived in that area my entire life. Our biggest and only move took place when I was one year old. We moved 3km down the road to our newly built house in 1992 and I haven't left since. I attended school at Eckville Jr./Sr. high school and graduated from there in 2009.

Exploring the World Traveling is one of my passions. I love seeing the world and experiencing all the different cultures. I find people very interesting and love hearing their stories. There is so much beauty in our world and I am so thankful for what I have seen and am excited to see more of it in the future. This year, as a class, we will get to study some of the worlds different cultures together. It will be an adventure!! Not only do I love traveling in my own time, but I love traveling to help other people. I have had the privilege of being apart of four missions trips. One place we went was into an orphanage in Mexico. It is an experience that I will never forget. Rebecca Allan

Favorites My very favorite color is purple. I love the smell and look of lily’s. They are simply beautiful. I would tell you what my favorite food is, but I have so many!! However, if I had to choose I would say that my favorite food would probably be stir fry with chicken and brown rice. Delicious! I LOVE Disney movies!! Especially the princess movies and my very favorite princess is Ariel. I also love seeing big smiles! So bring a smile to class.

Sports and Family I love to play almost every sport out there! My very favourite sports are basketball and soccer. So I hope throughout the school year we will get a chance to shoot some hoops or kick a ball around. Another big interest of mine is spending time with the people I love. My family and my friends. I also love meeting new people and getting to know them. This year talk to someone you don't know very well. It is always fun to get to know someone new. 1
