Buddy Benches

Altamont Creek students and staff would like to thank former student, Devan Yarnell, for building three brand new "Buddy Benches"  in various locations on our campus. The idea is that students needing a place to find someone to play with, have a special spot to make a connection, thus supporting Altamont Creek's goal to include all students and "Fill Buckets".  Devan is a current Livermore High School Sophomore who chose Altamont Creek, his former elementary school, when it came time to do his Eagle Scout project. Devan spent over a year getting district approval, fund raising, and coming up with the plans for these special benches. Altamont Creek would like to thank Devan for choosing us for his project. The "Buddy Benches" have been a great success!

Open House 2017!

Student Morning Valet

Traffic and safety are a continuing concern here at Altamont Creek.  We would like to start a new program we believe can help in these areas.  We are going to be asking interested upper grade students to help us by becoming a student valet to help with the flow of morning traffic.  This program has proven very successful at other schools.  We plan to start this program starting in September.

 

We will have five students who will serve as valets each morning.  They will assist other students as they get out of cars when they arrive at school.  At no time will they be directing traffic or be used as crossing guards.  Under the supervision of a volunteer parent, members of the AC Student Valet Program will learn how to act responsibly, help others and serve our school community.  Since their participation affects you, I am writing you this letter.  After you and your child agree to the duties, your child is invited to fill out an application.  Upon acceptance as a Student Valet, he or she will be trained how to be a valet, how to take responsibility for their station and making sure that they pay complete attention to their job.  They will learn how to wait until a car stops, make eye contact with the driver, and they open the door, assisting other children as they gather their things and safely get out of the car and then carefully closing the car door.

 

The students who are members of the program will commit to arriving early to school at least one day a week and meeting their adult supervisor at 8:00 a.m.  After putting on special vests, they will take their place at a designated spot along our passenger-loading zone and stand at their station, ready to open and shut the door of a car that has stopped to unload passengers.  Upon finishing, the student valet must then put their vest away and get to class by 8:30.

 

If you and your child are interested in being part of this special program, please discuss the seriousness of this commitment with your child and have your child fill out the attached application and return it to his or her teacher.  This is a commitment of time and requires a level of responsibility.  For this reason we have an application process.
