Mrs. Alexander's ALERT Up-Date

September 2015

Welcome to ALERT

Welcome to a new school year. I am looking forward to an incredible year with your child. The ALERT team has planned an exciting curriculum for this year. We will begin the year studying Humanity’s Habitat (architecture) and end the year studying Sustainable Living (how we can lessen our human impact on the environment). A gifted mathematical curriculum (M-3 Mentoring Mathematical Minds) will complement our units of study.

Communication is the key to a successful year. Each student will be given a gold take home folder as one way to keep information organized. Any notes, papers, and assignments will be placed in the folder. Please take the time to check your child’s ALERT folder each week and use it to send me any information


ALERT Orientation and Summer Project Showcase

The ALERT team will be holding an ALERT Orientation and Summer Project Showcase on Tuesday, September 15th.


Where: Blythewood High School

10901 Wilson Blvd. Blythewood, SC 29016

What time:

6:15 - 6:30 Project set-up (Only if your child has a summer project they are bringing to display)

6:30-7:00 - Student Project Showcase

7:00 - 7:30 Parent Orientation in the auditorium

*Door Prizes will be given out!

You will be able to order a t-shirt that night (if you wish). We will have one t-shirt of each size available to help you select the best size for your child. We'll place the order and have the shirts in by the beginning of October. Students should have an ALERT t-shirt to wear for field studies.

Coffee Fundraiser

Students will be bringing home a coffee fundraiser packet on their next ALERT day. Each bag of coffee is $10 and ALERT gets to keep $4 from every bag sold. This money will help us to fund items specifically for the ALERT program.

Coffee orders are due on your child's ALERT day during the week of October 5th - 9th.
