Messages from Principal Menard
Relationships are a very important component to our success here at Alsup. I strive to develop critical relationships with my students, staff, and families. I also encourage and expect our staff to do the same. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our scholars need support from both the school and home. We recognize that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your scholar's education.We encourage you to guide and support your child's learning by:
1) ensuring that your child is in school daily and arrives on time ready for the day ahead
2) ensuring that your child reads daily, at least 20 minutes each evening to help develop that
love of reading and to promote literacy skill practice.
3)Remains an active, participating student while in school
As with any new school year there are some important changes that I want to make sure everyone is aware of. Our school hours have adjusted a bit again this year. All elementary school hours are: 8:30-3:30 PM. Students may begin arriving to school at 8:20 AM. It is important that parents and students follow this rule as there is no supervision prior to 8:20 AM!
The bell schedule for Alsup is:
8:20 Students arrive on playground
8:25 Students line up
8:27 Students walk inside to classrooms
8:30 Breakfast and community time begins
Student safety is a top priority at Alsup, we will be providing crosswalk supervision beginning at 8:20 at the 4 crosswalk locations near Alsup. Please remind your students to use the crosswalks and go straight to the playground. As you are driving down Birch St, please be sure to follow all traffic laws and be mindful of the school zone!
I am very excited to continue my leadership at Alsup! Our scholars and staff continue to persevere and shine bright like diamonds! It is going to be an amazing year! Please, feel free to reach out to me at any time. I am here to serve our community and my door is always open!
