The following message comes from our librarian, Paula Ruesch:
Battle of the Books is a fun reading competition for students in 3rd-6th grades. Registration is open now and closes on Sunday, September 27th. This is the last week to register.
Click here for more information and to register your student.
T-shirts are $5. They are not required but are fun to wear as a team. If you order a t-shirt you can pay for it on the school website: https://alpine.alpineschools.org/
Just click on the tab on the slider that says CLICK HERE TO PAY SCHOOL FEES ONLINE.
We will start forming teams in October, students will receive their t-shirts in December, practice battles are scheduled for January, and the official competition will be in February and March.
Hurry and register your student — and let the reading begin!
Let me know if you have questions,
We are missing quite a few Take Home Reading books. If you have any Take Home Reading books at home, please send them back to the school with your student.
The Alpine School District updates school district COVID-19 data every Monday on the Return to School tab on the district website.
Please do not drive the wrong way on the one-way street west of the school. We have some parents who are driving the wrong way at the beginning of the school day when other parents are dropping off their students off for preschool and kindergarten. We are concerned about student safety and would encourage all parents to follow all traffic laws.

Outside the Principal’s Office
The days are getting shorter, the air is a bit brisker and the leaves on the trees are starting to drop. All indicators of autumn coming our way.
Last week, I biked to the American Fork Canyon summit and to Granite Flats and there are multiple signs in AF Canyon of fall as the trees are starting to change colors. I even saw some mountain goats on one of my rides! For me, this time of the year has always been my favorite!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
