Alcuin School is not just a good place for children; it's a wonderful place for families. Parent involvement is an important element of the school community. Our families come together frequently throughout the year for celebration, planning, and education. These gatherings, made possible through Parents’ Club volunteers and staff collaboration, are important milestones for each school year.

Highlights of our Alcuin School traditions include:

  • General Parents' Meeting – held at the beginning of each school year, consists of a meeting and classroom visits, followed by a social.

  • Fall Festival – held in October, a carnival planned and conducted by middle school students
  • Dads and Kids Breakfast – held in November, an early morning bagel and coffee breakfast in the Pavilion with dads and children
