Albion Elementary Family Newsletter
Thank you for caring!
Thank you for coming out to your student's parent/teacher conference. If you were unable to attend please be sure that you have a phone conversation with your student's teacher. The turnout for conferences was incredible and helps to illustrate why we have so many successful students in our school. It's no secret that family involvement in the education of a child makes a huge difference for their future. Keep helping with homework, reading, and having conversations with your children. Just because conference time is over please keep in mind that Albion Elementary's doors are open for family involvement. Be sure to email or call your son or daughter's teacher if you have any questions or concerns. We have an outstanding staff that is willing to discuss student achievement and learning any time. I hope to see all of you soon. Have a great November and Happy Thanksgiving!

The first annual pumpkin decorating at Albion Elementary was a great success. The kids loved seeing these creative designs and having something fun to work on with family at home. Start brainstorming pumpkin ideas for next October!
Over the last month we have been focusing on TRUSTWORTHINESS. Our School Resource Officer, David Worman, was our guest speaker for this pillar. Our next focus pillar will be RESPECT, beginning on November 17 after a student assembly featuring a guest speaker.
Our Fifth Grade Rocks!
Our first music program of the year was a big hit! Our students combined with fifth graders from Wolf Lake to put on a very nice show.

A Note From Nurse Eash
Our annual flu vaccine clinic will be held on Monday, November 7th for those students who have turned in a signed consent form. The Centers for Disease Control found that flu shots reduced a child’s risk of ending up at the doctor’s office sick with influenza by more than 60% last season. Thank you for protecting your student and others by getting a flu shot!
School Library Notes From Mrs. Knox
We will be reviewing how to use the online card catalog with grades 3-5 this month in the library. This can be accessed anywhere you have internet. Several of the benefits include:
* Searching all 4 CN schools for available titles
* Checking for Titles in a Series, by Author or Subject
Another Online reading resource available to all Albion Elementary families is TumbleBookLibrary.com. Our Username is albionin with the Password books.
