Alcova Elementary School
September 16, 2022
Dear Alcova Parents/Guardians,
We had a wonderful Curriculum Night last night. We welcomed so many parents into our building. Teachers and parents were enthusiastic and fully engaged. We hope you were able to take away some great strategies for helping your student learn and excel in the classroom. Please remember to have your child read for at least 20 minutes every night.
It is not too late! Please use the link below to join our PTA. We want every family in our school to join PTA, because we can do more together than apart.
Please continue to check our website for calendar updates and events. We look forward to building a continued partnership with you!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Proud to Be Your Principal!
Drama Club Auditions
Attention ALL 4th and 5th graders. If you are interested in trying out for Drama Club this year, we will be having auditions on Tuesday, September 20th, Wednesday, September 21st and Thursday, September 22nd for our winter selection. Auditions will be held inside Ms. Taylor’s Class from 3:30- 4:30. Once bus and car rider dismissal is over, you will come down to my class to meet for auditions. You can choose which day you want to attend to audition and be prepared to read from a script and do some of your best acting. I look forward to seeing everyone then.

All Pro Dads Breakfast Meeting
Our topic was positivity. We learned how being positive in all situations can have a positive affect on our children. Our men had a time to talk to their children about this topic using some guided questions.
We can't wait to see all of our men and their kids at our next meeting on October 12th at 7:00am.
