Happy New Year!

January 9, 2020


Dear Alamos Families,

Can you believe it? It has finally happened! The first month of a brand new decade is upon us! 2020 has made its debut and we are excited to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year! I hope this first newsletter of the decade finds you and your family, happy, healthy and excited to be back in school!

We welcomed our staff to the New Year on January 6th with an AES Educational Summit…”From Merely Surviving to Extraordinarily Thriving!” This amazing day of professional development refreshed our passion for the profession and gently reminded all of us that every day, we are called to be, Champions for Children. The day was filled with great opportunities for our staff to learn from each other, collaborate with specialists and get prepared for the second half of the school year!


Semester one is over and semester two has arrived! This is a great time of the year for our students to self reflect and set goals for the last half of the school year. What does your child need to work on or want to improve? Now maybe the time to concentrate on a particular subject area, organize notebooks, or implement a daily reading schedule. Just as adults, children need to set realistic goals, strive to meet them and celebrate their successes! January is a great month for setting goals and making New Year resolutions, what will yours be?


December was a busy month around our campus and I want to thank our Alamos PTO for continuing to be a pillar of support in our school community. Our nest is blessed to have such a committed group of parent volunteers on our team! In the spirit of holiday giving, our Junior Ambassadors led the charge by gifting over 70 blankets to elderly residents of a care facility in Murrieta. Students raised the money, shopped, and wrapped each and every blanket. Packages included a handwritten letter to each resident and were delivered by our Ambassadors the week before Christmas. This holiday our halls were filled with the sounds of the season! Thank you to our spectacular Alamos Choir for two great SEUS-Ville performances. The AES Choir is directed by Ms. Casey, just another one of our extraordinary parents with an extraordinary talent!


Parents, please be on the lookout for information on our latest and greatest Jog-a-thon fundraising event. The Bubble Fun Run is coming to AES! This PTO sponsored event is our biggest fundraiser of the year and parent participation is so very important and… a lot of fun! We hope to raise $25,000 to support our efforts to increase student access to new and innovative technology.


I have heard it said that time flies when you are having fun. I think that whoever came up with that idiom must have worked in an elementary school! I am expecting that the next few months will pass very quickly, as the calendar is filled with many exciting events and activities! Please keep a close eye on our school website for important reminders about upcoming dates and events. I wish you and your family a wonderful 2020!


Fondly,


Jenniffer Aynesworth, Principal
