A message from the Principal:



April 2019


Spring is finally here! What a great year we've had so far! We're eagerly looking forward to the remaining months and activities that lie ahead. Spring Break is April 15th - April 19th. We hope everyone has a restful and relaxing break. We will see students and staff back re-energized and ready to resume normal school activities on April 22nd.

Kindergarten registration materials have been sent out to those families who have already contacted the Board of Education. We also held two informational Kindergarten registration sessions on April 1st & April 3rd. If you have a child who will be in Kindergarten next year, you are strongly encouraged to use the kindergarten pre-registration hyperlink to complete the necessary forms online at l.  Any child residing in Wolcott who will be five years old on or before January 1, 2020 should be registered.

This month our town meeting, hosted by Pre-K, will be held on Friday, April 12th.  We have completed our celebrations of Alcott's six character traits: Caring, Citizenship, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Respect, and Fairness. Students have done an excellent job presenting throughout the year! For our last town meeting in May, we will present year-end awards.

Smarter Balanced Assessment testing for students in grades 3-5 will begin on April 23rd and run through the month of May.  We ask our students to get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast, and try their best!  

As always, thank you to parents, families and staff for continued support and cooperation as we work together to provide a positive experience for Alcott students.

Mr. Shawn Simpson
Alcott Principal
