Happy Friday Alcova Families!
It is hard to believe that we are already two months into the school year. Thank you for being such a great group of parents and community members. As we navigate through another year, it is imperative and important that we support the education of our children.
It was wonderful to see all of our loving Grandparents join us for breakfast on the 30th. Our students were so excited to share this time with you and get extra hugs to start their day!
We still have many parents that have not completed the required back to school agreements this year. Please click on the link below to visit MyPaymentsPlus and complete them this week. Thank you.
Please continue to check our website for calendar updates and events. We look forward to building a continued partnership with you!
We hope you enjoy your Fall break.
Proud to Be Your Principal!
