Note From The Principal

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day and was able to find some time to relax and enjoy an extended weekend with family. Now that Labor Day has passed, summer has officially ended and we are in the full swing of the school year. With that being said, we have had an amazing start! It has been one of the smoothest starts we have had in years and the positive energy from students and staff is evident daily. As I helped walk a group of first graders outside for dismissal this week, I asked one student if she had a good day. The student answered with a big smile, an excited jump into the air and by saying, “I had the best day!” This small interaction is just one example of the energy and positive start we are feeling.

On a different note, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the anniversary of 9/11 that occurs over the weekend. As I reflect on that event I am reminded of the need to stay connected with family and friends. Taking time to tell your children how proud of them you are, saying the extra, “I love you”, finding that time to play a family game or making that phone call instead of a text are all things to keep in mind as we are never promised anything in terms of health or long life. The events of 9/11 proved that kindness can overcome darkness. As we settle into the school year, I would like to encourage our Alpine community to find time to show that kindness to a family member, friend, neighbor, or stranger. This could never be more important at this time and when shown will have a positive impact on our students.

I certainly hope your children have shared some positive things about the first few weeks of school. Should you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher with classroom items, our Transportation Department with bus items, or the office with building-wide items.

Your partner in education,
Jason Snyder

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
