School Dropoff and Pickup
I want to thank everyone for the courteous and efficient manner that has been shown during these times of the day. As you have noticed, we have had all of our teachers outside during these times. Starting Monday, we will not have as many adults outside before and after school. Please continue to follow the safety and procedural measures we have been following for the first two weeks of school. Mainly, in the pull-thru, please pull as far forward as you can so we can make sure we can continue the great traffic flow we have had so far. Thanks!
Lunch Worker Still Needed
We are still in need of two lunch workers in our kitchen. If you, or someone you know might be interested, please let me know or email our kitchen manager, Joan High at [email protected].
Ink/Toner Cartridge Recycling
We are excited to continue our ink/toner cartridge recycling again this year. Please bring any empty cartridges to school, or send them with your students, and we will be happy to recycling them for you and collect a bit of money for the school.

Alpine PTA Meeting
We have one of the best PTAs in Utah! Our first meeting of the year will be on August 30th at 9:30 in the faculty room. We invite all who are interested to come and see what is happening.
Please Join Our PTA!
Have you seen the video our Alpine Elementary PTA created over the summer, to show you what kinds of things we do for our school? Check out the short video here!
Parents, please take a few minutes and join the PTA! By becoming a member, you are in no way signing up to volunteer your time! You’re simply paying dues to help our elementary sponsor the 20+ PTA activities we do for Alpine Elementary throughout the school year! The dues are $10.85. We truly value every membership and every way that parents can help support their children at school. Simply sign up here!
Reflections is an amazing nationwide art contest that coincides with a different theme each year. Students can pick from different avenues of art to display how they interpret the theme- this year the theme is “Show your voice.” We are hoping to have a night to showcase everyone’s entries along with choosing who won the contest. We still need a chair for this program and the program won’t be able to happen if we cannot find a chair. Here is a link that tells you exactly what the duties to the chairperson entails. https://www.pta.org/docs/

Room Mother’s Tea
On Wednesday, September 1st, we will be having our annual room mother’s tea. This is for all those who have signed up to be a room parent this year. We do have a couple of classes that do not have anyone signed up yet. The PTA will be reaching out to those classes to see if we can fill those spots. The short meeting will be in the library at 3:30 that day.
From the SCC
SCC Members Needed
We will be getting out information regarding the SCC this year shortly. We will be in need of several parents that might be willing and interested in participating on this committee. I will be sending out a separate email later this week with details.
From the Lunchroom
Please remind your students that may be eating breakfast to enter the school around the back on the patio. This is the door they will enter and exit after they finish their meal.
A reminder to everyone to please make sure your student(s) have money in their lunch accounts. If you need help with this, you can simply log on to mypaymentsplus.com and register. In addition to making payments, you can view your student account balances, history, set up automatic payments and account balance alerts. Also, our kitchen can accept cash or checks for meal payments, but not credit cards. If you have any questions or may need help, please do not hesitate to contact the main office at 801-610-8700.
