The Alexander School hosted a Scholastic Book Fair. The school was able to put $606 worth of free books into the library, which added up to 76 books!  Thank you to all who helped set up, work at and packed up the Fair.  Thank you to all those that stopped in to shop. Without you this fair would not be possible.

Mrs. Ellie Sanford visited Mrs. Hill’s 2nd and 3rd grade on Friday, September 29th.  Ellie showed the class how to make whole wheat apple pie and sourdough pancakes with candy apple pie syrup.  The class had to do some math to increase the recipe in order to make sure there was enough for everyone.  The class also got to grind wheat berries to help make wheat flour.  Everyone tried everything and it was delicious.

The Alexander School hosted it’s annual cross country meet on September 20th.  Approximately 149 students ran.  AES would like to thank First Responder Eddie Burgess for bringing the town ambulance and being on the school grounds and to Trooper Jason Fowler. Mr. Fowler sat out by the entrance to the school with his lights flashing.  This slowed traffic tremendously for parents and family members that have to park across the road.  This was a very successful event thanks to the great help of our community.  A special thank you to community members who volunteered as spotters, worked the time clock and table and helped make this event a success.
