Welcome to the 2013-14 school year!
It was a fantastic start to the school year and we're already settling in to our daily routines at Alcott. We're looking forward to another great year at Alcott with lots of learning and many special activities to look forward to. We want to welcome all of our new students and their families Alcott Elementary. You have joined an amazing school community with wonderful students, parents, and staff.
Third through fifth grades have new Common Core math materials that look a bit different from math books used previously. Be sure to read our newsletters posted on our website and those newsletters from your child's classroom so that you can keep up with announcements and other important information. A calendar of events is also available for your convenience. It will be updated occassionally, so be sure to check it often.
