I speak for the entire Alpine Elementary staff when I say thank you so much for all the kind things that were done for us during Staff Appreciation Week. What a generous and giving community you are! Thanks again.
Do any of you fill out a NCAA basketball tournament bracket? If you do, I am guessing your bracket is busted like mine. History was made when for the for the first time a 16 seed, the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) beat a number one seed, the University of Virginia. I have never even heard of UMBC! We do a Perdue family bracket competition, and my three-year-old grandson has picked more winning teams than me because he made his picks solely on whether he liked the names of the mascots! Fun time of the year, gotta love the underdogs.
Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered at the fifth grade Clear Creek Outdoor Camp. I was able to go up to Clear Creek on Monday and had the opportunity to visit with many of our parent volunteers. We couldn’t provide the total Clear Creek experience without your help. It was nice to see the students having fun and learning valuable lessons in an outdoor classroom! A huge shout out to our fifth grade teachers, Ms. Washburn, Mr. Horan, Mrs. Ybarbo, Mrs. Padgett and Mrs. Chang for all they did to organize and deliver the Clear Creek learning experience!
We will be having our One and Done School Fundraiser March 26 – 30. More details will be coming your way later this week.
