To the Parents of Alconbury Elementary School Students:
Welcome to school year 2015-2016! On behalf of the faculty and staff, we look forward to meeting you and working with your children. Alconbury Elementary School (AES) has an excellent reputation and is recognized as an accredited institution with the AdvancED, one of six US regional accrediting agencies. We have an active school improvement program and we welcome your participation and suggestions.
AES has approximately 215 students in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade. We have an experienced staff with most having master’s degrees. We offer programs in music, physical education, art, and host nation culture and customs. We also offer special education, speech and language, foreign language, and talented and gifted services for our students who qualify. Our campus includes three buildings, an outdoor playground, information center, computer lab, and all classrooms are connected to a LAN with Internet access.
Student achievement is high at AES and we work hard to ensure that every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We pride ourselves on working closely with the parents of our students. If you have a question about in-class events, please contact your child’s teacher. If your question deals with school policies or whole-school events, please contact me directly. The School Advisory Council (SAC) and the School Advisory Board (SAB) are both active here at Alconbury and we encourage you to attend meetings.
One of our goals is to see that parents and students feel welcome at AES and are kept informed. To accomplish this, our parent newsletter is sent out every Friday via e-mail. Hardcopies are available from the table outside the office. We also post our newsletters on our school website at http://www.alco-es.eu.dodea.edu/. In our Dragon Tidbits newsletter, you will find valuable information about school holidays, upcoming events and meetings, etc.
Please take the time to read over this handbook carefully and review it with your child as it can answer most questions you might have. It will also explain our programs and give you a good idea of what to expect this year. If I can be of assistance in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 268-4361 or 01480-84-4361 or at alconburyES.firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting each of you and sharing ideas about the education of your children. Please stop in to say hello, as I have an OPEN DOOR policy for parents of AES.
I am looking forward to welcoming you, and your child, to our great school!
