Just learned that trunk or treat is cancelled due to "lack of interest" and today was the first time I had even heard about it. What a shame, because we were definitely interested.
I forgot to ask at meet the teacher— For kindergarten is everyday 8-1:45 or is it earlier on Wednesday’s?
Will someone please send me the guidelines for the school uniforms?

Educating students to become exemplary citizens of the world with H.E.A.R.T.

The Alachua Learning Academy is a public charter school in Alachua County, charging no tuition or fees. We believe that our small school size combined with creative and inspired teachers results in higher student engagement and truly effective learning. This gives students an opportunity to meet their potential in interpersonal relationships and academic studies.

Mission: ALA is a H.E.A.R.T. based family that fosters our students' eagerness for lifelong learning, and their development of moral character and practical life skills, while preparing them to contribute as valuable members of our community.

The math circle is starting now in January for middle schoolers at UF. Remember to register! sorry we are not able to offer it @ALA
