How to Stay Connected with our School and PTA

We have a number of ways for families to keep abreast of events happening at school.

The Gator Weekly is Alamo’s official school communication which is sent electronically to your email inbox every Wednesday at 3 pm. Families who prefer paper copies will receive available information through the Wednesday Red Envelopes (paper only won’t get you everything!) Note that there is no hard copy version of the Gator Weekly. Occasionally, you will also receive a Wednesday Red Envelope from your teacher with field trip permission slips and sign-up forms.

We also have a monthly school newsletter in English & Chinese, Alamo Matters, which comes out the 1st of the month. The electronic version contains pictures and articles, whereas the paper version is mainly text.

We are now using ParentSquare  for our online communications! If you were previously in our MySchoolAnywhere system, you can register using the invite letter you received. If you have not received an invite letter, use the Sign Up/Create Password option.

Googlegroups is our moderated list for last minute reminders and parent-to-parent communication. Typically you can expect 3-4 emails a week. You can sign up through the the link at the bottom of this page.

Our Facebook page, Friends-of-Alamo-Elementary-School-San-Francisco, is also an excellent sources of information about school-wide events.

Calendars and event reminders can also be found on two bulletin boards just inside the door from the schoolyard, and the parent handbook sent home at the beginning of the school year.

Each classroom will also have at least one Room Parent who coordinates classroom events and volunteer opportunities, disseminates information, and serves as the liaison between teacher and parents.

Teachers will also post important messages outside of the classroom doors. There are also many bulletin boards outside of the main office where there is information about PTA/Foundation, afterschool and community events.
