Welcome new 4th grade teacher Mrs. Haase!

Shortly before Christmas break we learned that Mrs. Randall would be moving to the Traverse City area due to her husband's job transfer. Although we are sad to see her go, we wish her the best as she takes on a new adventure with her family. We have been blessed to have her part of our team for the past 3 1/2 years and will miss her tremendously.


Over the weeks leading up to the holiday break, we spent time diligently looking for a new teacher to replace Mrs. Randall. I am happy to announce that we have hired Wendy Haase to join the Alamo team. Wendy comes to us with almost 12 years of 4th grade experience. She Is dedicated to helping students become successful, building a positive learning environment, monitoring students' progress to ensure they meet their goals and developing a love for learning in all her students. We are thankful for the opportunity to welcome such an experienced teacher to Otsego Public Schools.


Please join us in welcoming her to Alamo when you see her.

"Brain Freeze" Packets

We had some great learning packets for students to complete over the holiday break. They included math, language arts, and lots of FUN! Please have your student return their packet for a freeze pop party with me on Fri., Jan. 11th.
