Third Trimester Begins
We have completed two-thirds of the school year. Today, we start the third and final trimester of the school year.
White Ribbon Week – We hope you and your students enjoyed the materials provided for White Ribbon Week last week, and continue to use them moving forward for further discussions on Internet safety!
Kids & Dads Pizza Night – We are excited to host our Kids & Dads Pizza Night THIS Thursday evening at 6:30 pm in our gym! Come enjoy pizza, prizes, games, and learn about how you Dads can get involved at our school! RSVP here (so we know how much pizza to order!). In addition, we’ll be giving away lots of cool prizes like a $50 Amazon gift card to a randomly drawn member of our PTA (if you’re not yet a member join here!), another $50 Amazon gift card to a parent who comes to our Thursday night event, and more!
A flyer from our School Nurse is attached with dates for Immunization Clinic dates in the month of March. Please direct any of your questions to our nurse, Savannah Cottom, savannahcottom@alpinedistrict.

Outside the Principal’s Office
Though memorial services are never a reason you want to have a family gathering, the opportunity Laura and I had to gather with her family this past weekend in Spokane, WA as we celebrated the life of Laura’s sister’s husband, Richard Collins, was in many ways a joyous family get together. Rich was a man of faith and I observed and felt the family’s faith sustain and give them hope in their time of mourning.
Laura has 10 siblings, all of whom spent their youth in Spokane, so she very much enjoyed the family reunion, while celebrating the life of a great man! It had been many years since we had been in Spokane where Laura was born and raised. It was fun to drive by the homes that Laura’s father built and her high school, Ferris High School, and for her to reminisce about her happy childhood. Laura’s father was the head of the Spokane City Planning Department for many years, and was one of the key visionaries and developers of Riverfront Park, a beautiful park in the heart of the city built adjacent to the Spokane River on land that previously was used for the Spokane Railyards, in preparation for the 1974 World Expo. A wonderful legacy for Laura’s family!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
