Alamo Christmas Blessings

Thank you to all of you who have taken a tag to help support the Alamo Giving Tree!


We will be wrapping all the presents for the families. If you can help we would love it! Wrapping will be on December 17th & 18th from 8:30 - 11:30.

Avoid "Brain Freeze" over the holiday break!

We have some great learning packets for students to complete over the holiday break. They include math, language arts, and lots of FUN! They are attached to the newsletter email. Spending a few minutes each day over break will ensure that the kids will be ready to hit the ground running when we return after the two week vacation. Please have your student return their packet for a freeze pop party with me on Fri., Jan. 11th.
