Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser
Dear Teachers, Students, and Parents, 
 
We want to thank you very much for your effort and support throughout our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser for the American Heart Association. We truly believe you made an amazing impact for the American Heart Association, not only by donating money, but by raising your child's awareness of America's #1 killer, Heart Disease and Stroke.  Together, we need to help educate the kids about taking care of their hearts, as well as others, as these lessons will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
 
Alvey is surrounded by an amazing community and we are truly happy to be a part of it!  It’s my pleasure to inform you that we have surpassed our goal of $10,000 and raised an outstanding $20,055 for the American Heart Association to use towards raising awareness along with life-saving education and research. We have currently raised the most money in Prince William County, we currently have raised the 2nd most money in the state of VA, and we are in the top 75 in the nation in raising money for the American Heart Association.  
 
Thank you very much for all you do!!!
 
Sincerely,
 
Mr. Bidwell and Mr. Ferrell
Alvey Elementary Physical Education Teachers


 
Quality Student Breakfast Canceled
ATTENTION: The March Quality Student Breakfast is canceled due to the weather forecast of accumulating snow later in the week.

Since the PTA purchases a large amount of food, including produce, for this event, it is important for us to take the forecast into consideration.

Students who were nominated for the March breakfast will be invited to attend the breakfast on April 10th instead. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope that your family will be able to join us to celebrate on April 10th.

Please contact Anne Henry, school counselor, at henryas@pwcs.edu if you have any questions.


 


February Newsletter
It is time to turn the page on the second marking period and head into the second semester of the school year. Your children have progressed so much since September, especially in the areas of Reading and Math. There are many reasons for the progress that is being seen, not the least of which is the support of parents and families with student learning. We look forward to seeing how they continue to grow as learners in the days ahead!
 
Jump Rope For Heart
Alvey has partnered with the American Heart Association to teach the students the importance of taking care of their hearts, along with helping individuals who are affected by heart disease and stroke. We are asking for your help to spread the word to your family and friends and support Alvey's Jump Rope For Heart Team.  All donations to the American Heart Association are made online using Alvey’s Team Page.

Please use the link below to access Alvey's Heart Team Page and remember to click join team.

A person does not need a science background to judge.

If someone is interested they may email Mrs. Lombardo: lombarjc@pwcs.edu or sign up online at sign up genius: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C094AA5AA23A5FB6-science2

Kiss and Ride
During the winter months, our Kiss and Ride line tends to be much longer than normal.  To accommodate this large volume, we have staff supervision outside beginning at 8:15am.  Please help to keep our students and parents safe by driving the speed limit around our neighborhood and in our parking lot.  Follow posted speed limit signs and be careful while driving through our parking lot.  We truly do not want to see anyone hurt or injured.

Did you know... It’s important to make time to talk about school with your child every day, so he or she knows that what goes on at school is important to you. When kids know parents are interested in their academic lives, they'll take school seriously as well. Because communication is a two-way street, the way you talk and listen to your child can influence how well your child listens and responds. It's important to listen carefully, make eye contact, and avoid multitasking while you chat. Be sure to ask questions that go beyond "yes" or "no" answers.
