Alcott News from the Desk of the Principal December Newsletter December 1, 2018 My wish is that you enjoy the final month of 2018.  Wishing you a happy and healthy close to the year! News from Spanish: We have gotten off to a good start this year with Spanish!  I am having fun getting to know all of the students, and students are having fun learning how to not use English in Spanish class.  So far, Mrs. Knowles’ 3rd grade class and Mrs. Altschuler’s 5th grade class are in the lead, with getting up to 13 minutes of no inglés during Spanish class!
