Lone Peak Cluster Teacher of the Year
On Friday, May 7 fourth grade Chinese teacher, Anna Moore, was recognized as the Lone Peak Cluster Teacher of the Year. Ms. Moore had a surprise visit in her classroom from Superintendent Farnsworth and other guests on Friday morning, as she received her Teacher of the Year recognition. The Lone Peak Cluster includes six elementary schools, two middle schools and LPHS. The principal at each school nominates a teacher for recognition, and for the second year in a row, the Lone Peak Cluster Teacher of the Year is one of our own at Alpine Elementary. Last year, kindergarten teacher, Colleen Aitchison, was recognized as the Cluster Teacher of the Year. Congratulations Ms. Moore!
Have you seen the new marquee in front of the school? After several months of not being able to communicate with our patrons on the old reader board that was vandalized in October, we are grateful for the new electronic marquee. As part of her administrative internship, I gave fifth grade teacher, McKayla Hill, the responsibility to work with the school district, the sign vendor and the City of Alpine to handle all of the logistics of getting the marquee up and running. Thank you, Mrs. Hill for all of your hard work and patience to see this project through to the end. We are also grateful to secretaries Martha Hadlock and Sheri Davis for completing the online training necessary to program the marquee.
We will be having a school carnival on Monday, May 24, 4:00 – 7:00 pm. There will be carnival games and food trucks. More information will be coming your way soon.

Outside the Principal’s Office
For any road bikers out there, the Alpine Loop is now open to cyclists. The road has been plowed, with minimal road debris left behind. This is the best time of the year to bike The Loop. The gates are locked at Pine Hollow Trailhead and the Stewart Falls parking lot, so there are no cars that cyclists need to worry about on the upper portion of the road. It was fun to bike the Alpine Loop for the first time in 2021 on Saturday.
Have a wonderful week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
