School Carnival Happening This Afternoon! – Come celebrate the end of a great school year and come to our school carnival, happening from 4 to 8 pm this afternoon! We’ll have several food trucks there, along with lots of fun activities for the family! Wristbands and tickets sold there (Wristbands: $10 for rides / $12 for unlimited rides and games).
End-of-Year Assessment Scores
I am attaching our year-end RISE (3 – 6 State Assessment) and Acadience (Foundational K-3 Reading Skills). Our student achievement scores, combined with the highest Dual Language Immersion assessment results in the Alpine School District, clearly indicate that our teachers and support staff are making every effort to help all students achieve to their fullest potential. The Alpine School District has higher state testing scores than other elementary schools in the state of Utah, and Alpine Elementary’s achievement scores exceed the ASD averages. Well done Alpine Elementary students and faculty!
We have had enough kindergarten registrations to receive the necessary staffing from the Alpine School District to return to three sections of kindergarten for the 2022 – 2023 school year! Mrs. Aitchison and Mrs. Malone will each teach a morning section of kindergarten and Mrs. Malone will also teach an afternoon kindergarten class. We are excited that we will have three kindergarten classes as we begin a new school year!
Principal Open House
There will be a retirement Open House for Mr. Perdue, Wednesday May 18, 3:30 – 4:30 pm in the gym. No planned program, just a quick meet and greet.
We will be having an Awards Assembly, May 24, 2:15 – 3:15 pm. We will inform parents who have students who will be recognized at the assembly.

Outside of the Principal’s Office
As our grandchildren get older, Laura and I have to make decisions about what activities to attend. On Saturday, we watched a four-year-old girls soccer game (more like a bunch of giggling girls in a tight beehive formation) and two of our grandsons play a flag football game. We missed seeing our 14-year-old grandson who lives in Daybreak and his team win the state rugby championship for their age group. And I really wish I could have been in Oregon to see our grandson who is a freshman at Redmond High School hit a home run to win the game against the cross-town rival high school. The video from our daughter helped us to experience our grandson’s joy, along with teammates and coaches. Retirement will give Laura and I more opportunities to share these fun times with our grandchildren!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
Alpine School District
