A message from the Principal


June 2018

Dear friends of Alcott School,

Happy summer! It is truly hard to believe we have reached the end of the 2017-2018 school year. I want to thank the teachers, staff and parents/guardians for all they have done this year to make Alcott the best it can be for our students. Everyone has worked very hard to make this school year a success.

Along with creating an intellectually challenging environment we feel that it is important for students to know that they are an important part of the community. Once again this year our monthly give back to those in need was a huge success. 

Though there were more snow days this year than last, the end of the school year still came very quickly. The much-deserved time to take a break and enjoy summer activities is upon us. While rest and relaxation are important, please encourage your children to read every day. We hope to once again be honored by the Governor for 100% participation in the Governor's Summer Reading Challenge for the 7th year in a row.  This year's theme is: Libraries Rock!: If we have 100 % participation we will celebrate in the fall with an Alcott team building concert, and I have pledged to allow the students to Slime me!

Please continue to check the website for updates on  what I am reading throughout the summer.

Have a happy summer and Let's Rock and Read!



Mr. Shawn Simpson
Alcott Principal
