Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members,

It is with pride that we welcome you to Alcott.  Each school year brings excitement in new learnings and we want you to embrace our school motto Learn More, Be More – Aprende más, se más.  We strive in making learning exceptional every day where scholarly work is expected.

As scholars, we will grow intellectually, socially and emotionally. We embrace the whole child philosophy where each child comes to school practicing healthy habits and learns in a safe environment.  In preparing our scholars for college, career and citizenship, we engage, challenge and nurture their growth with 21st Century skills for participation in the global community.

We will develop in our young scholars the drive to learn more and be literate in not only reading and writing but also in the technologically advanced world.  Alcott scholars will be prepared to think critically and communicate clearly through collaboration.  They will be supported with opportunities to be innovative and creative in their learning today so they are ready for the world of tomorrow.

Happy Learning,


Alcott Staff

inch and miles

Alcott's character education program is based on Coach John Wooden's book, Inch and Miles - The Journey to Success. Throughout the journey, Inch and Miles find out the real meaning of success by meeting fourteen characters in the story who represent the values that will guarantee success. By the end of the journey, Inch and Miles understand that:

Success isn't having trophies or toys.

It isn't a medal or friends of your choice.

What is Success? That's easy to see.

It's trying to be the best you can be!

Don't worry what others may have or might say.

When trying your best,

Success comes your way.

THANK YOU to PTA and ASF for providing the opportunity to teach the  Pyramid of Success to our students.
