Mrs. Van Nus' News
fourth grade's weekly update
It was a wonderful week at Alcova. Thanks to everyone who volunteered at the Santa Shop sponsored by PTA and to everyone who came out and enjoyed our Candle Light Luncheon. Our teachers worked hard to decorate and have the cafeteria ready for a festive time.
Additional thanks to Ms. Warzon and the Alcova Chorus for a great concert last night. Our students and parents are amazing. As always it is a pleasure to serve such a wonderful community.
