Hope that everyone had a fun and wonderful summer. Summer camp was very exciting for the children who attended. Some of the highlights were learning about American animals, bees, superheroes, musical instruments, Disney and Nick Jr. The children enjoyed playing outside especially with the water tables and running through the sprinklers.

Parking Lot When dropping off or picking up your child please do not linger inside the school or in the parking lot. Also please do not park along the fence as it is hard for parents to get out of the designated spots. We have limited spots in our parking lot so we need to be in and out as quickly as possible so that other parents can park. There are also spots on the street in front of the school that can be utilized during this time to ease the congestion. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
We are starting something new at Alpine this year - spirit day. Much like the high schools which have spirit week we are doing one "themed" day per month for the kids to have fun with. These "themed" days will give the kids a chance to get silly and have some fun. We will start in September with "crazy hair day". If your child does not attend on the assigned day please see your teacher for an alternate day.
