PTG Highlights: Fall Fest, Principal Coffee, Parent Social, Fall Workshops, Library Volunteers Needed, Happening at Alcott

Alcott Fall Fest - Save the Date! This year’s Alcott Annual Fall Fest is Saturday October 19th from 1-4 pm. Fall Fest is a fun day full of activities for Alcott families and would not happen without the help of parents who volunteer. We have many opportunities no matter your schedule or interest. We still need parents to join the planning committee. If you are able to help plan this popular event, please email Lynn Morel at We also have many opportunities to help both prior to the event and the day of the event. Please see the openings at the Sign Up Genius link. Thank you! 2019 Fall Fest Volunteer Sign Ups

Library Volunteers Needed: The Alcott School Library Media Center relies on a network of parent volunteers. Under the guidance of Library Volunteer Coordinators, volunteers are recruited and trained at the start of each school year, and a volunteer schedule is created to cover all classes for that school year. Volunteer tasks include: circulation of material, shelving and shelf reading, assisting students with book selection, and housekeeping. Volunteers are asked to commit to a biweekly or weekly schedule. Openings remain in the following classes: Gleason, Woodman and McSweeney. If you are interested in volunteering, please click here.
