A message from the Principal:


Dear Parents/Guardians and Friends of Alcott,


I would like to thank everyone for welcoming me into your Alcott family and making my transition into the role of your new principal a positive experience.  It is truly appreciated and it makes me happy to be associated with a group that is supportive and caring of each other.

As we move forward in our school year, the month of November will be bringing a resident artist to Alcott on 11/13, 11/14, and 11/15.  As of now, the project that students will be working on is "top secret".  Be sure to ask them what they are working on when they get home, as I am sure that they will be loving the experience.

On 11/20 we will have our monthly PTO meeting at 6:30 PM.  This will be my first official meeting and I am looking forward to meeting all that attend that night.

4th grade students that signed-up, just completed a week long after-school program entitled "Science Splash".  Students spent time with WHS teacher Robert Cormier and students from the WHS Robotics team getting their share of some really cool hands-on science fun.

With the cold weather quickly approaching us, I would like to remind everyone to please make sure that our students are coming to school wearing the appropriate clothing... coats, hats, gloves, etc.



  • Reminder - Early Dismissal on 11/27 - 1:20 PM



Thank you again for the warm welcome and I look forward to working with you.


Matthew W. Calabrese

Principal  - Alcott Elementary School
