ALPINE UNION THE DESTINATION SCHOOL DISTRICT OF EAST COUNTY!
AUSD RESPONDS TO HURRICANE HARVEY
Hurricane Harvey brought devastation and catastrophic flooding to the Houston area. As a District, we have reached out to colleagues in Houston to see how we may assist. We have been in touch with the principal of Burnett Elementary, a Pre-K-4 school, in Houston whose school community was hit hard by the storm.
As Mr. Lee, the principal of Burnett, shared in a letter to Dr. Newman, "We were one of the last campuses to be assessed because the roads to the school were all flooded. We were an island sitting in the middle of an ocean. The deepest parts of the neighborhood was six feet deep." Click here to read the letter from Burnett Elementary.
Beginning later this week, we will be launching a District wide letter writing and fund raising effort to adopt Burnett and support their relief efforts.
They have been hosting cook outs at their school to ensure that everyone who needs food is fed. They have specifically requested letters to their students, parents and businesses as well as funds to help support the recovery efforts of their families and students. Each school site will be working to support the efforts to help Burnett Elementary.
In addition to supporting Burnett Elementary, we will be collecting can foods for the Houston Food Bank, which is running low on supplies and are in desperate need of food. Boxes will be set up on each campus until September 15. Stay tuned for more information from the principal of your child's school.
5th GRADERS TO ATTEND JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT BIZ TOWN
Biz Town is a culminating activity after students complete four weeks of curriculum and preparation in the classroom , where students learn how to be a citizen, how an economy works, how to apply for a job and run a successful business.
This interactive, project-based program not only teaches students how to manage their own personal finances and the importance of becoming a successful professional within our community, but it also empowers them to take responsibility for their professional and educational futures! Stay tuned for more information.
4th GRADERS TO BUILD TREBUCHETS
We are pleased to share that all fourth graders this year will participate in the Pumpkin’ Chunkin’ workshop, sponsored by the the Alpine Education Foundation. This day will consist of small groups of students building their very own trebuchet followed by time spent launching different sized items across the SHES and CELC field. This fun and innovate workshop will cover the history of the trebuchet, and the physics and engineering involved in its use. Look for a notice from your child’s teacher if you are interested in chaperoning this unique opportunity.
