Make checks payable to Alcott PTG. We would like to have contributions by Friday, May 17, 2019.

Come and Celebrate Ms. Young! Please join us to celebrate our principal Ms. Sharon Young on Thursday afternoon May 23rd from 3:45-5:00. All parents, children and community members are welcome to join us for light refreshments in the Alcott cafeteria to say best wishes to Sharon on her retirement. In lieu of gifts, we will be collecting funds to start the Sharon Young Scholarship Fund. Sharon travels extensively with her family each summer and the fund is being established to help CCHS students in need of financial support travel on school trips. These experiences can be life changing for kids and Sharon is excited for the opportunity to continue to help kids in Concord, Carlisle and Boston with educational travel opportunities at CCHS. Please pass along to any friends, neighbors, teachers or community members. If you are not able to attend and would like to donate you can send a check made payable to Concord Carlisle Regional School District with the Sharon Young Scholarship Fund in the memo line and send into the Alcott office.
