I hope that the entire Alpine Elementary Community had a safe and enjoyable Spring Break. Can you believe there are only seven weeks of school left before our Summer Break?
Next year’s principal, Mr. Finlayson, and I are working cooperatively on a transition plan for the 2022 – 2023 school year. At this time, there is only one certified teaching position to fill, and that is our Computer Lab teacher, because the current teacher, Jaime Clement, will be teaching second grade next year. All hiring decisions will be made by Mr. Finlayson from this point forward, as he will be responsible for hiring and evaluation of the entire Alpine Elementary faculty.
- PTA Meeting this Thursday – Come join us on Thursday at 9:30 am in the faculty room to help vote in our PTA board for next year and give your feedback on how we can better help our school!
- Classic Skate Night at Classic Fun Center in Orem – This Thursday, from 4:30 – 8:30 pm, is our school’s skate night! Admission is free, so come join us! It’ll be a cold week, which makes it a great week to have some fun inside! (Skate rentals not included.)
- Running Club Helpers – We’ll be starting up Running Club again during morning recess next week, so we’re looking for some extra helpers on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:20 -11:15 am from next week till the end of the school year. The kids loved Running Club in the fall. It gave all the students an opportunity to get some exercise, and everyone could be included. If you have the time, we’d sure love your help! Please sign up here!
- Walk to School Wednesday Starts – This Wednesday we will be starting up Walk to School Wednesdays again! Let your students know and give them the opportunity to safely walk to school.
Here is a link to sign up for an after school golf program for those that are interested.
Outside the Principal’s Office
Laura and I had a wonderful Spring Break, traveling lots of miles in our car. We drove down to Las Vegas to watch our son, Brady, who lives in Rapid City, SD run and finish his first marathon. From Vegas, we drove to the Pacific Ocean, where we stayed three days on the Oregon Coast in Lincoln City. We then spent the final part of the week in Redmond, our home for 27 years, and where our second daughter and her family now live. I biked in Red Rock State Park in Nevada, the Oregon Coast and in the Cascade Mountains. Watching our grandsons play baseball, seeing a Carrie Underwood performance in Vegas and visiting with many dear friends in Redmond made for a very enjoyable Spring Break!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
