A message from the Principal:



December 1, 2018

Dear Alcott Families,

It is hard to believe, but December is already upon us! As a reminder the three elementary schools in Wolcott follow trimesters.  Report Cards will be distributed on Friday, December 7th, and parent conferences will take place on Wednesday, December 12th. 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 Wednesday , December 5th 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!

As we enter the season of giving, Alcott school is certainly in the spirit. Alcott School is running a school pajama drive until December 3rd for those who are less fortunate.  Alcott School's Student Council is also collecting Toys 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 14th.  We are specifically looking for school aged gifts, but any toy donations are welcome.  Please do not wrap your gifts. Finally, for our community giveback this month, On December 14th we will be doing a pajama day in which students and staff can donate a dollar or more to wear their favorite pajamas to school.  Proceeds collected will benefit CT Children's Medical Center for Cancer and Blood disorders. Thank you in advance for helping to make children very happy for the upcoming holidays!

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