There are only SEVEN days left to take to take the survey! The survey closes next Friday, March 22. Alamo currently has a 26% response rate.

The link for our school-specific survey: http://bit.ly/2SzfNZS). Every year all our responses to the Annual Culture and Climate Survey help Mrs. Fong and the District develop plans and implement changes that continue to keep Alamo a school with high academic achievement and a warm and welcoming community. There are no right or wrong answers to any of these questions and will not be used in staff or teacher evaluations. We just want to know everyone’s honest opinion. If you would like a paper copy to complete at home, please see Ms. Shellie in the office. She has paper versions in Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese and English!
