Hope to see all of you here at school for parent/ teacher conferences on Thursday 10/4 and Friday 10/5. Remember, we are on a 1/2 day schedule both days. 

On Friday October 26th our 5th - 8th graders will be taking an educational field trip to Phelps Dodge in Morenci, AZ 

Student Council elections will be held ithe week of October 22nd.

Our next Site Council meeting will be held on Wednesday November 14th.

As part of our after school enrichment program, Mrs. Gale Lee will be teaching ceramics. The activity is going to be offered once a week and is scheduled to begin on Tuesday Nov. 27 from 3:15pm-4:30pm and end with the final class on Tuesday Dec. 18.  I will send a reminder home as we get closer to the start date. 

 Red Ribbon Week will  be October 23-31.  I will  include a valuable web site on our web page.

SCIENCE CURRICULUM ADOPTION

Alpine School has implemented the FOSS science program for the Kindergarten thru 6th Grade levels, and the HOLT science program for Grades 7 and 8.

Both curricula are aligned to the Arizona State Standards.

Students in Grades 4 and 8 will be the first to be tested with AIMS to the standards. Additional grades will test in future years.

Would you be interested in contributing towards an Arizona State Tax Credit??

In 2007, Arizona taxpayers are allowed to receive a tax credit of $400 for married couples filing a joint return, and $200 for single or head of household filers. This credit is for payment of fees in support of extra curricular activities at an Arizona school of their choice. This credit may be used to reduce state tax liability to Zero and any unused amounts may be carried forward for not more than 5 consecutive taxable years.

If you are interested, please contact Linda Fite at the Alpine Elementary School Office or call 928-339-4570
