Save the date for our next Eagles Night Out on Wednesday, March 17! It's a double fundraiser with both Nothing But Noodles and Marble Slab participating. Be sure to stop by for ice cream and see "celebrity" scoopers from Boosterthon!
Exciting news!!!   The South County Branch of the Public Library has reopened!!!  Students and parents can go into the library starting March 1 and wander around to look for books.  Go check out the library and see all the new features after the remodel and check out a stack of books to take home.

Our McAlpine Eagles Dance Fit will kick off in just 3 weeks on Wednesday, 3/17. Our goal is to strengthen our school community by having fun, inspiring our students to live with character, and to raise funds to improve our school.

Heres what all students can get excited about:

· Fun, engaging character development lessons

· A high-energy event to give our school a much-needed boost of fun!

If your family feels its not in the position to financially support the school, thats ok. Families can actually support our school by also SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and family online. Sharing IS supporting.
