How about that weekend weather! The sunshine felt good and gave us all the opportunity to get outside and work in our yards or participate in our favorite outdoor activities.
We are excited to let you know that as parents you can now excuse student absences online on Skyward! See the attached flyer for step-by-step instructions.
Our Kindergarten Registration will be March 16 – April 2. Contact the office with any questions you have.
We will be conducting a Safety Week, March 8 – 12. I have attached our Emergency Response Plans which can be found in Emergency Procedures under the Information tab. We want students, parents and staff to understand what is meant by the following emergency procedures:
We also encourage parents to review the Alpine Safe Route Map on the school website.
School Community Council
The Alpine Elementary School Community Council will be having their March meeting on Thursday, March 11, 9:30 – 10:30 am in the Conference Room. The agenda is attached.
We are grateful to all of the Alpine Elementary students who participated in this year’s Storytelling Festival! This year’s winners are Paisley Nance (lower grades) and Jane Rasmussen (upper grades). These two students will advance to the district level of the competition. Congratulations!
TODAY is the last day of Math Madness Week, and it has been such a great week! Remember to enter in all of your child’s minutes they have spent doing math minutes here in the google form TODAY. Any websites that you work on with math, flashcards, worksheets, or recipes will count. The top ten kids from each grade who have entered the highest number of minutes by March 8th at 10 pm will receive a Crumbl cookie!!! For those with food allergies we will have another prize option. Check out the link for more information.
We on the PTA board are so grateful for all those who have reached out to help us fill the PTA board for next year. There is one more spot left to be filled. We have an amazing mom, Suzanne Campbell, that has stepped up to be either President Elect or Co-President, but she needs someone to work with, as President or Co-President . She has done a fantastic job organizing and running our Chinese Lantern Festival the past few years. She will be great to work with! Please reach out to Ammie Gillespie 801-472-4323 or Laralee Proctor 385-225-0657 if you have any questions. Thank you!
Battle of the Books
5th and 6th grade students who signed up for Battle of the Books will be battling today, Monday, March 8th? The winning team will compete at the District Battle of the Books Competition on Saturday, March 27th at American Fork Junior High School.
Our 3rd and 4th grade students will battle on Monday, March 22!
Lost and Found
Our Lost and Found is once again overflowing. See the attached photos. One simple thing that parents can do to help us is to put your child’s first and last name on coats, jackets, hats and lunch boxes. With a name, we can return the lost item to the student here at school. Please come to the school and reclaim any lost items that should be in your homes and not sitting unused in our Lost and Found.
Outside the Principal’s Office
The warmer temperatures are hopefully a harbinger that Spring is quickly approaching. For our date night on Friday, Laura taught me how to play pickle ball. Fun game but I have a lot to learn. My rudimentary skills are humbling when balanced with my very competitive nature. And on Saturday morning, I biked up up Suncrest. Good workout going up the hill and always fun coming down the mountain at an exhilarating speed!
Have a wonderful week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
