Albion students had a real treat last Thursday, November 19th, when Mr. Jameson dressed up like a clown and rode up and down the Commons on a unicycle--without falling! Click here to watch the video. Why did he do it? Because we reached our goal and sold over $4900 in books and merchandise at the recent Albion Book Fair. We were able to buy $660 in books for the library and receive $850 in cash profits which will be used for book club, the summer reading program, reading incentives, and library collection development. Thanks for supporting our Book Fair and thanks to Mr. Jameson for being such a good sport!
We just finished our Toys for Tots Drive last week, and it was quite a success! The drive was sponsored by Albion's Student Body Officers. We raised over 400 toys and gifts for less fortunate families from around the state of Utah. We had a competition between the grades and our students worked really hard. Our sixth grade students ended up winning with a total of 167 toys. Thanks for all the support and help by students and parents! The picture shows the toys being picked up by the Marine Corps.
Congratulations to Jenni Perkins, Jamie Workman, Lindsay Christensen (formerly Pearmain), and Melissa Niskala who were recently awarded a $10,000 grant from the Canyons Education Foundation. The money will be used to purchase two mini iPad labs of 20 each in order to enhance our Arts programs and increase student learning. Supt. Briscoe and members of the Foundation came to Albion to award the grant.
