May has finally arrived! Is it just me, or did April seem like a long month? The month of April and the last two weeks of March are a time none of us will ever forget as we all deal with the effects of a worldwide pandemic. We are doing school in a different way, but I draw strength and optimism from the way our faculty and entire Alpine Elementary Community have responded in these unprecedented times. Continue to press forward!

Outside the Principal’s Office.
Even as our world has changed as we all deal with the effects of COVID-19, life goes on. Births, deaths and weddings continue to take place with much smaller gatherings of people. Haley Faux, a former teacher aide at Alpine Elementary, and the daughter of first grade teacher, Mrs. Faux, was married on May 2 before a small gathering of immediate family in the American Fork Canyon. Life goes on!
Four of our five children are building houses, starting new employment or moving to another state in the next month. It is almost as if our children, and many others throughout the world, are saying, “You have changed my life in many ways COVID-19, but I will not allow you to derail my life goals and dreams.”
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
