Principal's Corner

December 1, 2018

Dear Aldene Families,

We have a very busy and exciting month ahead of us in December. The Aldene Safety Patrol will be up and running on Monday, December 3. The Patrol consists of fifth grade students who will be helping students when they arrive in school in the morning. You can look out for them in their Safety Patrol belts and badges when students line up in the morning. Our student council is busy preparing an assembly on how students can be helpful at school, which they will present to the study body. 

Our fifth grade students will be hosting senior citizens from the Casano Center for the annual holiday party on December 11. There will be games, a sing-a-long and the students will be interviewing their guests and following up with a written piece about them. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to hone their writing and speaking skills and practice being generous with their time and helpful to others. 

The deadline for Educator of the Year nominations is Friday, December 7. Applications are available on the front page of the website for anyone who is interested in submitting a nomination. 
As the weather gets colder please remember to dress your child for the outdoors, as our goal is to have the students outside for recess as often as possible.  Physical activity is an important factor is keeping our bodies and brains healthy.
