Check out the flyer for more information and for some coupons you can use at the event. If you forget your printed flyer at home, you can show them the one above on your phone. Hope to see you there!

Early Release Day on Wednesday, Dec. 8

On Early Release Days, school will dismiss three hours earlier than normal time, and buses will drop students off three hours earlier than their usual time.

Holiday Gift Card Drive

With COVID-19 still looming over so many families, we are asking those able within our school community to consider donating gift cards again this year for those in need this holiday season.

Gift cards to retail locations like Walmart, Target, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, and more will be gladly accepted. 

If you would like to donate, you may send any cards to the front office addressed to the school counselors, Mr. Josh and Mrs. Burley, for collection from Nov. 29 - Dec. 10. If your family would benefit from receiving support, please use this link to contact one of McAlpine’s counselors.

Holiday Support Form

Candy Cane Grams are Coming

McAlpine’s 5th graders are raising funds for their graduation celebration, and will be selling Candy Cane Grams for $1 each.

Order forms will be coming home with all students this week. Send completed forms and payment back to school by Dec. 15. Payment can be made by cash or check (checks made out to McAlpine PTO).

Candy Cane Grams also will be sold before school in front of the office on Friday, Dec. 10, and Monday-Wednesday, Dec. 13-15.

We will attach mini candy canes to the grams and deliver them to students on Friday, Dec. 17.
