Albion Elementary Family Newsletter

March 2017

If March Comes In Like a Lion, It Will Go Out Like a Lamb...

Albion Elementary Families,

If the above weather statement is true, we will be in luck for the end of March! We sure can't control our weather consistency, but the staff at Albion Elementary are working very hard to provide consistency within the school day as we continue toward spring. I hope you enjoy the March edition of our newsletter that highlights the many exciting things that have been happening over the last month. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Have a great March!
