Principal's Message

With the change in our school calendar, the start of August means that we are just two weeks from the start of school on August 14th. As someone who has been accustomed to the start of school in late August or early September for my entire life, the change is taking some getting used to.  Thank goodness for our wonderful Alamo School community of volunteers who have been on top of things and have been making preparations for the 2017-2018 school year even before end of the previous year! 

 

Anyone who is familiar with “how schools work” knows that during the summer a small army of volunteers are organizing activities, recruiting volunteers, updating forms and working on web pages.  The PTA and Ed Fund at Alamo School work closely with Gayle Hughey (office manager) to make certain we are ready for the return of our families for registration on August 8th (9:00AM - 11:30 AM or 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM).  Families that are new to Alamo School are invited to attend a new Family Orientation on Augus14th (7:15 PM – 8:15 PM) that will include an overview of the registration process, as well as school policies, procedures and a welcome by the PTA and Ed Fund.

 

I want to thank all of those members of the PTA and Ed Fund for helping in preparation for registration and the start of school.  We are so fortunate to have both of these remarkable organizations at work for our students and staff. I am looking forward to the start of a very exciting year!
