Welcome to Almaden Elementary School

From Principal Montes


Principal Montes

I’m looking forward to our Open House, May 20th from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  Open House is great event!  You get to see the wonderful work your student has done, and students take pride in showing off their classroom.  PTA will be hosting food trucks on the black top at 5:30.  A portion of the money will come back to the school, so plan on eating dinner here at Almaden. Visit this month’s May/June newsletter for more information.

Many thanks to our wonderful GE tutors!

Reading Day (below): This is the first of several School-wide Reading Days this year! Every student from Kindergarten through 5th grade read to a buddy from another class and was able to share a favorite book. We love reading!

Thank You Dads!

What a day we had on Tuesday, September 10th when 50+ Dads brought their child to school. It was great to see everyone smiling and having fun! Dads were making bookmarks with their children in order to promote literacy all while enjoy donuts and warm coffee

Thanks to Ms. Shelley Alberti and PTA for their brilliant idea and help with Dads and Doughnuts! Also, much gratitude to Starbucks for providing the delicious coffee!!
