Note From The Principal
It is hard to believe that spring break has come and went and we are looking at a little over 30 days of school left in the school year. We are in the last stretch of the school year and it truly equates to a sprint to the finish line! This next week students in 5th grade will be beginning to take the MSTEP state assessment. Shortly thereafter, students in 3rd and 4th grades will be beginning to take the assessment as well. Please help set your student up for success by simply making sure they get a good night’s rest and encouraging them to do their best and sharing that you believe in them.
As we return from break and settle into a busy time of year with weather changing daily, please remind your child how important it is to be an Alpine Leader. Being an Alpine Leader truly helps all students learn and creates the safe and supportive environment all students want for themselves. Alpine “LEADS” STANDS FOR:
L - Listens to Others
E - Engages in Learning
A - Acts Safely
D - Does Their Best
S - Shows Respect
If you have not had a chance to see Alpine being highlight in the most recent edition of School News Network, please click on the link below. I would like to thank all our parents who attended our reading event held before spring break. https://www.schoolnewsnetwork.org/2023/03/31/at-school-or-homereading-is-a-family-affair/
Last, members from our team were recently recognized by the Kent Intermediate School District for the work put forth to support a variety of student needs. Members of our team earned the “Because of You!” award.
Please continue to stay informed by reading all school communications from your child’s teacher, our school and the district. If you have questions or a specific need, please be sure to connect with your child’s teacher or our office for support.

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 an 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.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
