Please continue to encourage your children to finish strong. With many year end assessments occurring we want our students to be able to show all they have learned by putting for their very best. We have less than 5 full weeks of school left! As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or our school office.

May is here and that means we are officially winding down the school year with approximately 30 days left! Studetns are working hard to master end of the year content and we are in full testing mode with the state assessments being administered in grades 3rd-5th, MAP testing beginning to occur for all grades and teachers working to assess specific grade level standards.
This week I read an article/post about the impact an “outside” voice can have on our children. The author shared his personal experience of his own children sometimes listening more to teachers, coaches, tutors, mentors, etc. than mom and/or dad. This resonated with me as a dad. Thre are so many things I want my chilren to learn. I am thankful that there are a number of “outside” voices hat have taken time to engage my children. They are teachers, coaches, parents of their friends, relatives, and more. They have taken time to get to know my children and build into them. They have listened to them, and when asked, have provided guidance and counsel. At some points my children simply needed to hear from these trusted “outside” voices that they were loved and frequently thought about through words of encouragement. The guidance and encouragement of these trusted adults have greatly impaceted my children and for that I am eternally grateful. Net week is teacher appreciation week and I encourage all of us to take a moment enxt week and thank those that may be “teachers” to our children.
As we near the close of April, I want to continue to beat the drum of finishing strong. Our focus at school competes with after=school event sand weariness of the school year. Even so, we need to help each other finish strong – giving our best effort, attending regularly, coming with a growth mindset perspective, and looking for opportunities to spread kindenes. Please encourage your children to finish well.
Please remind them to show their Alpine BEST by bing a leader, showing excellence in their work, and being safe and trustworthy.

I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break.
I hope that everyone is receiving the district communications being sent regarding our instructional plans for students as we respond to the current pandemic. Our district continues to monitor data and receive guidance from the health department to ensure we are making the best decisions possible to keep students safe while supporting in person learning.
You recently received an email asking for parent feedback via a parent survey. This feedback is an important part of our annual school improvement effort. Please take a moment to complete it before Friday, April 23 if you have not already done so. Thank you for being part of our educational team!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or our school office.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
