Get Ready. Get Set. BUILD!
~ Welcome to the 2022-2023 School year~
A Note From Mrs. Aynesworth
August 8, 2022
Dear AES Families,
I am so excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! For those of you who are returning to us, I can hardly wait to see you and for those of you who are brand new to the Alamos family, I can't wait to me you! I so hope the joys of summer vacation have hugged your heart, lifted your spirit and you are ready for a wonderful start to the school year! Get Ready. Get Set. BUILD!
“Let Us BUILD Them Up” continues to frame our “heart-working" vision for our new school year. As we open our doors on the heels of a pandemic, we aspire to BUILD our kids up so they are ready to catapult forward with courage and confidence! In the word B U I L D, each letter represents an important building block of social, emotional, behavioral, and academic development. We want to BUILD up our students up to be: Brave, Unique, Independent, Limitless and Disciplined! At Alamos, Legos are our inspirational representation of BUILDing and connecting through play. It is my hope that our students are anxiously awaiting the launch of the 2022-2023 school year and are eager for the BUILDing to begin!
Alamos Elementary School is an asset-building school that prides itself on academic excellence while instilling in children a love for learning. The FISH Philosophy continues to inspire our students to embrace others, recognize and appreciate differences and be personally invested in our school community. If BUILDing each up is our WHAT then certainly The FISH Philosophy is our HOW. AES is a “school” of FISH, and together we will...BE THERE, PLAY, MAKE THEIR DAY, and CHOOSE OUR ATTITUDE!
Our first official day of school is Monday, August 15th. Please note that August 15th is a modified day. Our Tk-5 students are dismissed at 12:55 p.m. and our preschool students are dismissed at 12:30 p.m. Please be aware of the new start and dismissal times for all elementary schools in TVUSD.

At AES, we truly value our school families and their contribution to our educational community. It is our hope to make the time you and your child spend at AES, the very best. Our commitment to providing an OVER the TOP service experience is the little bit of extra we do every day to make the ordinary, EXTRAORDINARY! If you should have any questions, concerns, and/or suggestions, please do not hesitate to share them.
I wish you and your family a delightful start to the 2022-2023 school year!
Let Us BUILD Them Up!

TK and KINDER, Sneak Peek at AES!
Parents, please note: In the spring after enrolling your student, you may have received a welcome letter that mentioned the first day of school being an Orientation day and students only staying at school until 10 a.m. with the parent. This information has changed, and ALL students will be on a modified schedule and stay at school from 8:50 a.m. to 12:55 p.m. Parents are welcome to walk the student to class and are invited to stay in the classroom for a brief orientation with the teacher. On the second day of school - your child will attend regular hours: Early Birds – 8:50 a.m. to 12:55 p.m. and Late Birds – 10:25 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
