Principal's Message

Alcova Families!

Parents, thank you for your engagement in our recent Literacy/STEM night event. Students, parents, and the staff really enjoyed the event! In addition, last night many of our families participated in our Chick-fil-a night at the Dacula location. Your engagement in these and many other events continues to build our sense of community at Alcova.

Next Tuesday is a Digital Learning Day for our students. Students are becoming more comfortable with the process for digital learning, and we anticipate another successful experience for our students. However, please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

We will also celebrate our recent fund raiser success with a "Day of Awesomeness" sponsored by our PTA next Wednesday. We are anticipating that this will be an enjoyable experience for our students as they have an opportunity to participate in a variety of outdoor activities during their specials time.

Thank you for your continued support of Alcova Elementary!

Brenda P. Anderson
