ALTA VISTA CHORUS

Third, fourth, and fifth graders are invited to join the Alta Vista Chorus. Our Chorus program is led by Mrs. Jane Threet and is held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:45. The fall session begins on October 1st and concludes with a performance on December 11th. More information about the program, as well as the required permission slip, can be found at the bottom of this newsletter.

RECESS LEADERS

Today, Coach Thomas and Mrs. Bailey provided an overview Alta Vista’s Recess Leader program to our fourth and fifth graders, explaining how students could be involved. We have changed the program this year to increase participation and would love see more students take advantage of this leadership opportunity. The flyer below explains Recess Leaders' responsibilities and expectations. If your child is interested in participating, please review the information in the attached flyer and return the completed form to the school office by Friday, September 13th.

MILEAGE CLUB

On Monday, we had a wonderful turn out for our first Mileage Club event of the school year. Please encourage your children to join the fun -- walk or run with a friend during lunch on Mondays and Fridays.

SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL

Kym Joseph and Elyce Hall have volunteered to join Alta Vista's School Site Council. Because there were two positions to fill this year, there was no need for a ballot or voting. As always, School Site Council meetings are open to the public and upcoming meetings will be listed in future Vista Views.
