Alpine Elementary News
I have seen a lot of expressions of gratitude on social media in recent days. If I was a poster, which I am not, I would shout from the social media rooftops how grateful I am for the Alpine Elementary Community!
As a faculty, we are truly grateful for the incredible students that attend our school, and for parents who are so kind and supportive as we make every effort to help each and every child have the best educational experience possible at Alpine Elementary. None of us has ever experienced a school year while dealing with worldwide pandemic. Indeed, these are challenging times. On a personal note, the strength and optimism I receive while dealing with all of the school issues related to COVID-19, are directly attributable to our amazing students, supportive parents and dedicated staff. Thank you!
We have had one employee and one student added to our COVID-19 dashboard in recent days, but we have had four staff members and one student come off the active virus list. Consequently, we have moved from yellow to green on the Alpine School District COVID-19 dashboard!
Our annual Candlelight School Coin Drive will be November 30 – December 4. See the attached flyer. We need help from parents to count coins on the Coin Drive dates. If you can help, will you please sign-up on the attached document.
Our Lost and Found is overflowing. Please come to the school and see if your student has any items that have not been claimed in our Lost and Found!
We are still looking for a PTA president for the 21 – 22 school year. We need your help! Please contact me or one of our current PTA co-presidents, Amme Gillespie [email protected], or Laralee Proctor [email protected].

I have much to be thankful for in this season of thanksgiving. My faith and family top my gratitude list, and as we welcomed a new grandson, our 14th grandchild, to the family on November 12, our family has been abundantly blessed! As a pandemic rages across the world, we are all reminded to never take our good health for granted. Most bicyclists don’t venture out into colder weather, but a brisk ride up to Southfork on Saturday morning was my way of expressing gratitude for the good health I enjoy in my sixth decade of life.
Have a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving Break, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
