September News - Sparta
Hope that everyone had a great summer. Summer camp was a lot of fun for the children that attended. Highlights were building our own Thomas the Tank Engine, soaring into outerspace and having our very own summer Olympics. The opening of our sandbox was very exciting. All the children couldn't wait to get outside and into the sand.
We are very excited for our upcoming school year at Alpine. The 1st few weeks we will enjoy getting to know eachother and welcoming old friends back to school.
9/21 Annual Children's Breakfast - prepared for students by the teachers for National Breakfast month
9/26 Johnny Appleseed's Birthday - we will be having apple cupcakes to celebrate
Alpine T-shirts and car magnets
Each registered child is receiving an Alpine t-shirt this year. If you have not yet received one for your child please let your child's teacher know your size and color preference. Also we have new Alpine Montessori logo car magnets. If you would like one for your car please pick one up at no charge from your child's teacher.
Our annual fall fundraiser this year will once again be the KidStuff coupon books. These are a great way to save money at many of our favorite stores, restaurants and attractions. The cost is $25 for each book. Books will be handed out the first week of school. If you would like to keep it please return a check for $25 - if you do not want it simply return the book to school. Additional books are available for you to keep or sell to family and friends. If you sell/buy 5 books you get a 6th book for free. Alpine will keep 50% of the profits from selling these great books. All profits from the fall fundraiser will go towards purchasing new Apple computers for the school.
Please save the date of October 8th - we will be offering an opportunity for Grandparents to come in and observe the children in their classes, as well as, enjoy a special snack with their grandchild. Sign up sheets will be available in late September.
