ChromeBook for Christmas?

If a ChromeBook is high on your student's Christmas list this year, you may want to check out our Chromebook Reviews for Families link. This site will give you the information you need to make the right purchase.


Holiday Tip:

Is your family getting a new video console for the holidays? Do you wonder what games are age appropriate? Check out smart video gaming tips for kids and parents at ConnectSafely.org


Holiday Remembrance Candle Lighting:

Although the holidays are often a time full of excitement and cheer, it can also be a difficult time of year for some individuals and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one or are going through a difficult time. As a way of supporting our Albion Family, the guidance department offered a free candle lighting for anyone who wanted to dedicate a candle and write a message to a special loved one.


Videos:

Check out our videos from the past week. We have our orchestra and choir holiday concerts, and Candle Lighting program. Enjoy!


Team Update:

It has been a busy last few weeks for the Rough Riders! We started off the month of December with our Winter Incentive. Students earned Rough Rider dollars for exemplary behavior, effort, kindness, or achievement which they could use to buy a movie ticket, ability to wear pajamas, and snacks on our incentive day. All students earned the incentive (which also included a Minute to Win It challenge) and had fun eating and team building before we left each other for winter break.


We also were fortunate enough to have this year's Albion Geography Bee Champion on our team! Congrats to Jacob S!


Rough Riders also gave back to the community through collecting over $500 in donations as a team and winning the school-wide Penny Wars. The Penny Wars supported needy Albion families. We are so proud of their effort and generosity.

We are very pleased with the progress of our students and can't wait to see their growth through the second semester!
