Principal's Message

Alcova Family,


At this time of year, we are often consumed with a long to do list that just keeps getting longer as time seems to fly by, and this year is no different. My wish for you this holiday season is that in the all of the doing and checking off the to do list, you find peace, joy, and yes, rest. May your New Year be the best yet. I look forward to seeing our Alcova family January 6th.



Proud to be your Principal

Cortina Harris

Administrators Took A Pie In The Face For The United Way

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Alcova United Way fundraiser. Our administrators helped raise money for the United Way that will help our school and our community by promising to get a pie in the face if students brought in a dollar. Ms.Epps's class raised the most dollars for this United Way campaign. All students could view the event on announcements this week. Sponge Bob and Patrick also made a special appearance to help with the fundraiser. Thank you to our administrators for leading our students in helping others.
