Crazy Hair Day 2012
Hopefully everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving Break, spent with friends and family. I know many are already counting down the days until Winter Break. Keep in mind that there are a lot of things going on here at Alamos this month. This first week, our PTO held its annual Book Fair, benefiting the school library. During the last week before break, they will be having a "holiday store" where students will be able to shop and buy for anyone on their list. Parents please make sure to help your son/daughter and us out by filling out the provided envelope with family member names and the amounts you will allow him/her to spend on that person. This helps the shopping process immensely. Students are then unable to spend all of their money on just one individual. Thank you to the PTO for offering this fun opportunity to our students. In addition our Alamos band will be performing on the evening of the the 17th, at 6:00 for anyone who would like to come hear some holiday music. They have been working really hard all semester, two afternoons a week, to prepare for this performance.
Our annual Grandparents' Day, hosted jointly by our PTO and foundation will take place the last day before winter break. All grandparents and grandfriends are invited to come enjoy a small program in the morning, participate in various classroom activities throughout the day, take pictures with their grand child(ren), and eat lunch with them as well. This fun tradition has become a part of our Alamos school culture,so I encourage everyone's participation. Please just remember- only grandparents, not parents, aunts, uncles, etc.
I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season and New Year! I hope everyone is able to spend time with family remembering the things that are really important and really matter to you. Rest up, and come back ready to learn in 2014!!!

Another great achievement was Alamos being named a 2012 California Distinguished School. In order to be invited to apply for Distinguished School honors, schools must meet a variety of eligibility criteria including designated federal and state accountability measures based on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the Academic Performance Index (API) requirements. The California Distinguished School Award identifies and honors those schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap.
