Shout out to Tim and Michelle Petersen!
Michelle, thank you for your help with setting up at school!
Words Matter Week was a success. Students hung wonderful notes of kindness on the tree.
Shout out to the Alamo Student Leadership Team
Happy Valentine's Day! Thank you to student leadership for the candy grams! Parents and caregivers, your kids are awesome. Words Matter week was so sweet- the kids wrote the kindest messages on our Word Tree.
As a reminder, we are actively looking for volunteers to join the PTA for the 2022-23 school year. We have so many fun things planned for our kids, but we will not be able to continue to do them if we don’t get volunteer support. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to continue to see the fun events the PTA brings to our school.
We need your help at lunchtime! Alamo needs your help in making sure our kids are having a fun, friendly, and well-supervised lunch recess. Volunteering for yard duty is a great way for your child to see you helping out at school and a great way for you to see them in their element. Please consider giving less than an hour of your day by signing up here.
Run Clubbers! Get your sneakers on!!! Run Club meets before school @ 7:25am every Wednesday (except breaks and 5/11) on the lower blacktop. Thank you to Lisa Taylor for keeping our kids running!
Yearbooks are on sale now and we need your pics! Any Alamo families wishing to contribute to yearbook picture taking this year can snap pics at every Alamo School event, and share them via HJeshare.com, School Code AlamoYB. Please remember to include event names for our committee to organize them into the yearbook. If you still need to purchase a 2021/22 Yearbook, you can do so at yearbookordercenter.com, School Code 12361. For 5th grade families, you can purchase a personalized message with pics to your graduating 5th grader for an additional $25.

Your Ed Fund Dollars at Work: We are busy taking photos of many of our staff members who are supported by your donations to the Ed Fund. Since parent access to campus is still quite limited, many of these individuals’ efforts are not as visible as in the past, but they are working harder than ever! This week we are highlighting Mrs. DaValle, one of our Reading Instructional Assistants.

Ed Fund Dollars at Work
This is Mrs. DaValle's first year working at Alamo School. She left teaching first grade to raise her five daughters but is now enjoying being back in the classroom with students! She works with small groups of first through fifth-grade reading intervention students at least three times a week for approximately 45 minutes each. This group was practicing sound spelling and writing dictated sentences. They had to check their work for "CAPS" - capitalization, appearance (was their work neat), punctuation, and spelling. So far this year, these lessons have been taking place in the library but have now moved into the resource room since construction is completed.
