On behalf of the hard-working and dedicated staff at Alice Drive Elementary, welcome back to school! It has been a pleasure to see the children walking through the doors of ADE with smiling faces and an eagerness to learn. We are off to a great start for the 2017 – 2018 school year, and we are looking forward to a great year.
Thank you parents for participating in our back to school orientation, parent university, and parent information nights. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s education, please stop by or give me a call. I have an open door policy and will be glad to meet or talk with you at your convenience. Please remember that parents may enter the building only at the front entrance and parking along Miller Road is for staff members only. The Miller Road Loop Entrance is for Miller Road walkers and for dropping students. It is not a parent entrance.
Please mark your calendar for the month of September and October as it is filled with many activities. Our first PTA meeting will be Monday, September 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room. Once again, we will be selling Charleston Wrap products as our PTA fall fund raiser. All fundraiser orders must be turned in by Wednesday, September 20th.
Finally, I encourage all of our parents to join our school’s PTA. The membership fee is only $5.00. It is our hope that we will have 100% parent participation this year. We are also continuing with our Box Tops collection this year. Please send the box tops in a zip lock bag or envelope with your child’s name and teacher’s name written on the front of the envelope or zip lock bag.
We look forward to working with you this year! If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at 775-0857 or visit the school.
