Alpine Elementary 1st Annual Sock Drive
We have had a really fun time collecting socks for local needs! We have had a great response with over 1500 pairs of socks donated. With that many already collected, we have decided to have Monday, Dec 11th as the last day we will be collecting socks. Alpine Elementary students and parents have always stepped up to the plate when a need or service has been needed. Thank you so much.

Schedule for last school day of December
Also, just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the schedule for the last couple school days in December. December 21st will be the last day of school for students before the Christmas break.

Additionally, there is no kindergarten that day. Please do not send your kindergartners to school that day!
