Summer Office Hours
The main office at Alpine Elementary will be open in June and July on Tuesdays, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm.
Sleeping on the School Roof
Because of the generosity of the Alpine Elementary Community, we raised $18,000 in our “One and Done Fundraiser” in April. That money will be used to purchase new Chromebooks for students. Consequently, Mr. Perdue needs to follow through on his promise to students and sleep on the school roof. I will be on the roof in a tent after school on Wednesday, May 25, and will be there when the students arrive for their final day of school on Thursday, May 26. And yes, I will be on the roof all night!
Chinese Summer Camp
This is a link to a Chinese Summer Camp that is not associated with Alpine Elementary or the Alpine School District, but is being offered by a lady named Su Ma Ma. Please direct all questions to her.
Outside of the Principal’s Office
I write parents my final “Outside of the Principal’s Office” in the Eagle News as the time has come to retire and leave the principal’s office after a 38-year career as an educator, 30 years in Oregon, and eight at Alpine Elementary. Many people have asked me how I am feeling as I enter the final week of my professional career. The answer is I am very content, feeling like the time is right to hand Alpine Elementary off to new leadership, next year’s principal, Mr. Finlayson. All of the important student achievement metrics indicate that Alpine Elementary is providing students a high-quality education. We have a dedicated staff who will continue to help all students achieve to their fullest potential.
What a joy and privilege it has been to serve as the principal at Alpine Elementary for the past eight years! I thank the Alpine Elementary Community parents for all of your support as the most effective schools have a strong partnership between parents and school staff. I truly appreciate all the words of kindness and appreciation that have been directed my way since I announced my decision to retire. Whether it be our annual Candlelight School Fundraiser or our recently completed “One and Done Fundraiser”, I have seen time and time again the generosity of the Alpine Elementary Community to do not only what is best for our students but also less fortunate students on the other side of the world. I loved my 30-year educational career in Oregon, but the eight years I have been at Alpine Elementary have been the perfect capstone to my professional journey.
I feel extremely blessed to begin the next chapter of my life with my best friend and forever partner, my beautiful wife, Laura. And so begins our new adventures!
I have fond memories of my time spent at Alpine Elementary, and I will forever say, “It is a great day to be an Eagle!”

PTA News
School Carnival Happening This Afternoon! – Come celebrate the end of a great school year and come to our school carnival, happening from 4 to 8 pm this afternoon! We’ll have several food trucks there, along with lots of fun activities for the family! Wristbands and tickets sold there (Wristbands: $10 for rides / $12 for unlimited rides and games).
End-of-Year Assessment Scores
I am attaching our year-end RISE (3 – 6 State Assessment) and Acadience (Foundational K-3 Reading Skills). Our student achievement scores, combined with the highest Dual Language Immersion assessment results in the Alpine School District, clearly indicate that our teachers and support staff are making every effort to help all students achieve to their fullest potential. The Alpine School District has higher state testing scores than other elementary schools in the state of Utah, and Alpine Elementary’s achievement scores exceed the ASD averages. Well done Alpine Elementary students and faculty!
Kindergarten News
We have had enough kindergarten registrations to receive the necessary staffing from the Alpine School District to return to three sections of kindergarten for the 2022 – 2023 school year! Mrs. Aitchison and Mrs. Malone will each teach a morning section of kindergarten and Mrs. Malone will also teach an afternoon kindergarten class. We are excited that we will have three kindergarten classes as we begin a new school year!

There will be a retirement Open House for Mr. Perdue, Wednesday May 18, 3:30 – 4:30 pm in the gym. No planned program, just a quick meet and greet.

Outside of the Principal’s Office
As our grandchildren get older, Laura and I have to make decisions about what activities to attend. On Saturday, we watched a four-year-old girls soccer game (more like a bunch of giggling girls in a tight beehive formation) and two of our grandsons play a flag football game. We missed seeing our 14-year-old grandson who lives in Daybreak and his team win the state rugby championship for their age group. And I really wish I could have been in Oregon to see our grandson who is a freshman at Redmond High School hit a home run to win the game against the cross-town rival high school. The video from our daughter helped us to experience our grandson’s joy, along with teammates and coaches. Retirement will give Laura and I more opportunities to share these fun times with our grandchildren!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
