JUNE 2022



I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents, staff, and students who made this another great year at Alpine Elementary School!

Although the school year is quickly winding down we still have several exciting activities to look forward to. Our students will get to enjoy one more assembly, Field Day, Second Grade Family Night, and PreK & Kindergarten End of the Year Celebrations. Our students have worked really hard all year and have shown tremendous growth academically and socially. We are proud of their accomplishments.

Tuesday, August 23rd will be our Open House & the first day of school will be Tuesday, September 6th.

Have a wonderful summer!

Mr. Leone, Principal


From Our Guidance Counselor

This month’s character education trait is fairness. Understanding the concept of fairness is important for young people. It teaches them how to get along with others and build relationships. Please wear rainbow colors for fairness on June 17th. We will also be having another live assembly in June called "The Freedom Within!"

Mrs. Heather Yanoff, Guidance Counselor

From our STEP Teacher

Alpine students have learned and explored so much this year! The students have been exposed to Computer Science Education with several different types of technology and activities. They have also been challenged with STEAM projects that encouraged them to work through the learning process by designing and engineering different objects that complete specific goals. LEGO engineering has also continued to be an important part of our STEP classes as students have worked to build things such as beds that are "just right" for Goldilocks, marble mazes, etc. Through technology and hands-on learning opportunities, Alpine students have been enriched and challenged to try new things! Thank you for a great school year and all the continued support from the amazing families of Alpine students!

Mrs. Christina Morrow, STEP Teacher

A Message from SHS Project Graduation Chairs.

Hello Sparta Parents/Guardians!

Graduation for Sparta High School Class of 2022 is right around the corner! To honor the graduating class, Project Graduation will be held Friday, June 17, 2022 - back again after an unfortunate hiatus due to the pandemic. Project Graduation is a post-ceremony, alcohol and substance free all-night celebration aimed at saving lives. Graduates in the past, used to ‘'party hop' in their effort to celebrate with as many classmates as possible. Project Graduation is a safe alternative: it keeps attending graduates off the roads, preventing any of them from becoming an accident statistic. This event also allows their parents to rest easy knowing their son/daughter is celebrating safely. Since starting in 1985, students attending Project Graduation have not been involved in any fatal motor vehicle accidents on the night of the event.

Why are you, the parents/guardians of elementary age children receiving this letter? Great

question! This year's Project Graduation Committee has put together a fun, safe and entertaining event for this year's senior class at Drew University. In order to put on this fantastic experience for the graduating Seniors, we need volunteers and chaperones to help run this event who don’t have a graduating Senior. This is a great opportunity to witness Project Graduation activities that your child may experience when they are a Senior (however far away that may seem).

If you have any questions, please mail Additional information will be emailed to you explaining what we need you to do in detail, so please include your email when you sign up.

Take a moment and select the volunteering opening that works best for you. Please consider being an overnight chaperone - it is a lot of fun! The time passes quickly and you won't even notice you are tired until you're back home in your own bed the next morning. Plus there will be coffee :) The more people we have, the more fun it is for everyone. We can't do this without you! We are grateful for the support of the Sparta Community!!!

Thank you,

Gina Muth and Joe Galley
