A Message from the Principal
Dear Allen Dale families,
Welcome to Allen Dale Elementary School, home of the Panthers! I’m Principal Jake Musser. I have had the opportunity to work as the principal at Allen Dale over the past 12 years and this is my 18th year in Grants Pass School District #7. I come from a family of educators. My father was a school superintendent and principal, and three of my siblings teach within the same district at different schools.
At Allen Dale we understand the importance of getting our students the most sound and fulfilling education possible, and believe that every child has the opportunity to learn and succeed. We are proud that all of our teachers are highly qualified, and go above and beyond to ensure that every student receives the support they need to succeed. We offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities and events, including after school activities like Archery, Run/Walk Club, Art Club, SMILE Club, Chess Club, and Book Club, to name a few. We understand that in order for a student to have a sense of belonging they must have opportunities provided to them beyond just the classroom setting.
This year, we will continue to focus on student learning and engagement, and we welcome your support and involvement. We believe that communication and collaboration are key to a successful school year, and we encourage parents and community members to stay involved and engaged in our school.
Please check ParentSquare or our website regularly for updates and information on upcoming events and school news.
Thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children. We look forward to a great year of learning and growth at Allen Dale!
Allen Dale Elementary Principal
