Dear Families,

I hope you and your children are enjoying the summer and have found time to relax with family and friends.  It is hard to believe that the 2022-2023 school year will be starting in a few short weeks!  I am looking forward to a great year and can’t wait to welcome you and your children back to Alcott!

I wanted to take this time to share some important information that you may need in the coming weeks.

First Day of School: The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 31st and is a half day.  There is no school on Friday, September 2nd and Monday, September 5th.

Class Placement: Class assignments will be released in the Parent Portal by 5pm on Friday, August 19th.   You will need your Aspen login to be able to view your child’s classroom assignment.  If you are having any trouble logging in, please email for help.  You may want to check to see if you remember your login before August 19th as help is only available during business hours.

Open House: Teachers will be hosting an open house for students on Tuesday, August 30th from 2:30-3:15pm.  Please note that kindergarten will be following a different schedule – your child’s kindergarten teacher will be in touch with details. Although brief, this will be a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to meet the new teacher, classmates, and see the classroom.   

Supplies: If you did not order supplies through the PTG, a link to the supply lists for each grade level can be found here.

Back to School Night: Save the date for Alcott’s Back to School Night, which will take place on the evening of Thursday, September 22nd.  A more detailed schedule for the night will be released later in the month.

Bus Assignments: Bus assignments will be available later in the month.  You can access bus routes on the transportation website.

I hope that everyone is enjoying their final weeks of summer.  I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
