From the Principal

Time flies when you are having a good time! Students are making tremendous progress in all academic areas. I am very proud of the growth our students are making! It is very apparent that learning is important to our Alpenglow students. Thank you for all you do to encourage learning at home and for emphasizing the importance of school.


Alpenglow Elementary attendance for the year is at 89.56%. Great job parents and students! Our goal is 90%. Let’s finish the year strong.


Thank you to all the families that took time to fill out the School Climate and Connectedness Survey. The information you provided will help us as a school community better serve our students.


Our new statewide summative assessment PEAKS or Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools will be given to students in grades 3 – 10 in the areas of English language arts and math, and science assessment in grades 4, 8, and 10. The results from the PEAKS assessments are used to identify strengths and area of need across the district, as well as for each individual student. It is important that your student(s) be present during these assessments in order to get an accurate snapshot of their level of mastery in relation to state standards. These results will also allow our teaching staff to guide classroom instruction based on areas of need. The testing window is from March 28th  – April 28th. 


   Alpenglow’s testing schedule is as follows:

        • 3/28 -3/29      3rd grade Language Arts and Math
        • 3/30 – 3/31     5th grade Language Arts and Math
        • 4/3 – 4/6        4th grade Science, Language Arts and Math
        • 4/6 – 4/7        6th grade Language Arts and Math

Please be mindful of these dates when scheduling appointments, vacations, etc. If you have questions regarding PEAKS assessments or scheduled testing dates for Alpenglow, please feel free to contact Principal Demetree-Trombley at 742-3300.
