Congratulations and best wishes to all of our former Alfred Elementary students who graduate this evening! Thank you for returning to visit AES and for inspiring young minds! Good luck MHS graduates:)
Congratulations to Alfred Elementary Kindergarten teacher, Michelle Lessard! Mrs. Lessard has published her first book titled, "Pageant Paige Takes the Stage". We are so proud of her and look forward to an author read with our staff and students!
Alfred's Field Day 2022 was a success! Students enjoyed a variety of outdoor games thanks to the help of Mr. Penley! Our fifth graders did a wonderful job leading each station and all students enjoyed snow cones thanks to Mr. Cole's snow cone truck.

Alfred Elementary School welcomed our new Buddy Bench today! The buddy bench is a venue for children to include others in play that have no one to play with. It is used for kindness, inclusion, and friendship. WE are excited to implement this tool at our school. Ms. Lessard, a kindergarten teacher at AES and the current Ms. Maine 2022, recently applied for a buddy bench through the New England Patriots Foundation. A special thank you to Ms. Lessard and to Michele Libby, who made the delivery to our school today!
Oakhurst Dairy has notified us that there was a production issue with chocolate milk that will impact all of our schools in the coming days; however, white milk will still be available. We apologize for the inconvenience.
A HUGE thank you to all who volunteered or donated items at the Alfred/Lyman food drive on Saturday at Market Basket! We raised two car loads of food & $793.50 in gift cards & cash donations! A special thanks to Jackie & Aurelie for transporting the food & to Ellie for coordinating & running the event!
Alfred Elementary Fifth graders Annabelle Lewis, Gracie Grant, Gregory Cass, & Eliott Daney participated in a field trip to Massabesic Middle School to meet the principal, social workers, school counselor, and more! They also joined a student-led tour of MMS to familiarize themselves for next year.
The Kindergarten classes at Alfred Elementary School went on a field trip to Pumpkin Valley Farm for Baby Animal Day! They had a blast petting the baby bunnies and goats. The 'jumping pillow' was a huge hit, as well as the corn pit and hay ride. It was a day to remember! Thank you to our PTSA for sponsoring such an amazing trip!
June menus are now available!! www.rsu57.org > Menu > Documents > Food Service Menus
AES staff enjoyed Kiwi the Blender Bike during staff appreciation week in addition to many snacks, treats, and special surprises. We would like to take this opportunity to thank both our PTSA and the Alfred community for your efforts & support! We are thankful for the generous gift certificate donations and our new picnic tables complete with umbrellas! They are a wonderful break space addition!
Students at AES put their egg packages to the test! Packages were designed and created out of recyclable materials during our family STEM night. While outside enjoying an ice cream party for reaching a model mustang ticket schoolwide goal, student designed packages were thrown off the roof while staff opened them below. We had many designs that survived the fall!
Many thanks to our AES community and staff members for the donated recyclable materials to help make our family STEM night a success! We had the largest turnout ever, and we enjoyed welcoming our families into our community school again. The children enjoyed designing & creating a package to house their egg for our egg drop, took a chance at the 'guesstimation station', chose a book from our free book table, and shopped at our evening book fair!
Students from Alfred Elementary participated in our annual grade level "Color Wars" today as part of our April Spirit Day! The classroom with the highest percentage of participation will earn a pizza party, which will be sponsored by our RSU 57 Nutrition Department.
As a follow up to our plant packaging STEM activity, 2nd grade teachers took our project a step further and had AES plant packages delivered to LINE and vice versa! Classrooms zoomed to open & evaluate their design! If their plant didn't survive they hypothesized why that may be.
As part of our 2nd Grade science STEM activity, AES students were challenged to grow and package a plant that address the following criteria: it must contain, protect, preserve, communicate and display! Students did a wonderful job with their creative designs!
The Principal's Challenge as part of our Read Across America Read-a-thon is now complete! Alfred students celebrated on Friday by "sliming the principal". It was rewarding to join as a school to laugh and celebrate together! Thanks to Mrs. Wilkins for joining in on the fun!
