Hi Shannon,
At CVU we used to start the computer programming class with Alice, then move into Java.  I wasn't teaching the class at the time, but the feedback from that teacher was that Alice does a great job of giving students a feel for object-oriented programming and it is highly engaging.  In fact, he had the problem that when students switched to writing their own code from scratch, it was a big let-down engagement-wise. 
Let me know if you'd like to discuss with him further and I can connect you.  
Also, we have a set of 30 Alice textbooks that you might be interested in?
