Dear AES Families,
Welcome, to October. We are excited for a BOO-tiful month ahead! I have heard it said many times that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that is true then a video must be worth millions! This month, our Alamos Family is excited to be the Community Spotlight for the Temecula Valley Unified School District. This wonderful opportunity gives AES the ability to showcase our beautiful school and recognize the students and staff that contribute to the success of our educational community. I could go on and on about this amazing place, but instead, I invite you to sit back and take a look for yourself. Our Spotlight video certainly speaks volumes about WHO we are, WHAT we do, and WHY we do it!
Teacher conference week for students in Preschool through 5th grade is rapidly approaching! Mark your calendar for the week of Oct 10-14th. The entire week is modified dismissal and all of our Preschoolers and Kinders attend school in the morning. As you know, the partnership between home and school is an important one! Your attendance at a parent-teacher conference, SST, IEP, or any school meeting sends a powerful message to your child that school is an important priority. The opportunity to have an in-depth, face-to-face conversation about your child’s academic, social and behavioral achievement at school sets the stage for future success. I know the days are busy and plates are full but our staff will do our very best to accommodate your schedule. Once a meeting date and time have been confirmed, AES prepares for your arrival. We may hire substitute teachers to cover classes so your child’s teacher may attend, we reserve a meeting room, and our team members reserve time in their day just for you. As you can imagine, scheduling a school meeting is no easy task! If you cannot attend or need to reschedule a meeting (we know life happens), please inform the school office as soon as possible so that we may have the time to adjust our time and resources. We so appreciate your support!
In the spirit of PLAY and learning, AES will host Live Literature Day on October 31st. Students and staff are encouraged to “dress up” as their favorite literary character. Students are encouraged to bring the book their dress-up character is from to school with them on the 31st. Students may not wear masks or bring any kind of prop or accessory representing a weapon of any kind (sword, knife, etc.). We are excited to bring literature to life but please be sure your child’s choice of dress up allows them to easily and safely participate in regular school activities such as recess or physical education.
Welcome October, be BOO-tiful!
