Fall Festival and Fun Run
We would like to thank our PTA for the fantastic week we had last week. They put in hundreds of hours planning and carrying out these events. We would also like to thank Doterra for supplying the T-shirts and Smith’s Marketplace in Lehi for donating the fantastic fruits for the Fun Run. Thanks, PTA, for all you do for our school!
Reflections-See below for details
I would just like to encourage you to help your students with a Reflection entry. Hopefully, you have all noticed a reduction in the homework for your students. One benefit that can be had with this homework policy is that you might have a bit more time to do things like a Reflection entry. I know life is busy but the Reflections program is something that your children remember for years to come. Please remember that entries are due by October 13th.
Cornbelly’s opened last weekend! If your family is planning on going to Cornbelly’s any time this season, use ALPINEPTA as your promo code and you can get $3 off your admission to Cornbelly’s
From the Library
Please remember to return any past due library books!
From the SCC
Thanks to those who attended our last SCC meeting. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 11th at 9:30 in the faculty room.

We are overwhelmed with the generosity of our Alpine Elementary parents and community! Thank you so much for all of those who donated to our fundraiser and those who bought our Fall Festival baskets.

2nd Grade – Ms. Clement’s class
3rd Grade – Ms. Chen’s class
4th Grade – Ms. Dale’s class

We want to send a special thank you to Doterra for donating to make our T-shirts happen! All of the students and faculty looked awesome in the shirts during the Fun Run!! The lunches for the winning classes will happen soon!
Also, thank you to all the volunteers who made last week possible! Everyone had a great time at the Fun Run and the Fall Festival! We appreciate all that you do!
Running Club is starting this week! It will take place during Monday and Friday morning recess and Wednesday afternoon recess. Remember to wear tennis shoes for those kids wanting to participate. Prizes will be given out to the kids who reach their running milestones.
Reflections is a national PTA program and it gives students the chance to submit art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. The theme for this year is Show your Voice! Submissions need to be sent electronically here: https://www.utahpta.org/ref (this is also where instructions and rules are found) by October 13th.
Our next PTA meeting is Oct 4th from 9:30-10:30 AM in the teacher’s lounge. We would love to have you there!
At the end of October, we will be voting on our new PTA bylaws. The proposed bylaws are posted in the teacher’s lounge. If you have any concerns or issues with the bylaws, please email [email protected]
Attached is our current tentative PTA calendar so you can look ahead and plan for events to come. Dates are subject to change slightly.
