ALB First Friday Newsletter

A glimpse into September happenings in our community!

Hello, September!

Welcome to the second month of school! We had a busy month of August with curriculum nights, Open House, and the Back-to-School Hoedown. In classrooms, teachers are leading students through Morning Meetings to build community each day. They are pushing students to inquire more about what they are learning. Teachers are reviewing MAP data and planning to meet the needs of all students. Parents will be receiving information about scheduling conferences with teachers during Conference Week, September 19-23. Remember that Fall Break is the following week, September 26-30!


We are honored to be your school leaders. Please reach out to us anytime with questions, concerns, or just to say hello.


Kind regards,


Julie & Jillian
