A message from the Principal:


October 1, 2019


Dear Alcott Family and Friends,

It is hard to believe, but autumn is here.  Leaves are turning colors, and there is a chill in the air. Time is certainly flying by and students are well into their school routines, working hard.  

Speaking of fall, we held our annual Fall Festival on Friday, September 25th.  It was a great event complete with, bounce houses, hay rides, arts & crafts, contests, some tasty food  and our wreath raffle! Thank you to our PTO and volunteers who worked hard to make the event a success!   

On Friday, October 18th, we will celebrate our student's accomplishment of 100% participation in Governor's Summer Reading Challenge for the 8th year in a row!  Because of this great accomplishment, every student in the school (and staff member) will be able to partake in a dance party that is out of this world!  We are proud of this accomplishment and take pride in our students and their families commitment to reading! 

Also, on Friday, October 18th we will hold our first town meeting of the year.  This year we will focus on a theme for each month. For the month of October the focus is Kindness.  Grade 2 will be hosting our first meeting. Town Meetings will be held on Friday Mornings from from 9:05-9:50. The dates are listed below.  


As Always, I look forward to working together in order to provide the students of Alcott the best possible opportunities for success.  


In Partnership,

Shawn Simpson, Principal
