A message from the Principal


Dear Alcott Families,

It is hard to believe, but December is upon us! As a reminder the three elementary schools in Wolcott follow trimesters.  Report Cards will be distributed on Friday, December 8th, and parent conferences will take place on Wednesday, December 13th. If you haven't done so already, and would like to schedule a conference with your child's teacher, please be sure to contact them to set this up. 

On Thursday, December 7th the Alcott PTO will hold our annual Cookies and Cocoa with Santa event.  This is always one of the most popular events of the school year.  Many children and families partake in this event which includes arts and crafts, games, tasty snacks, and even an appearance by "The Big Guy".  We hope to see you there!

We will hold our winter book fair from Monday, December 11th through Friday, December 15th.  There are lots of great Scholastic Books to purchase.  We will even have extended holiday hours the night of parent conferences on December, 13th.  Thank you to our PTO for making this event possible.  

In the giving spirit of the season, Alcott School's Student Council is collecting Toy for Tots for those in need to help them to have a great holiday.  The collection box is in the main office.  We are collecting toy donations now through Friday, December 15th.  We are specifically looking for school aged gifts, but any toy donations are welcome.  Please do not wrap your gifts.  Thank you in advance for helping to make ALL children in town very happy for the upcoming holidays!

In closing, I would like to wish all Alcott families and friends a joyful holiday season!
