ALB First Friday Newsletter
Students do not have school on Election Day, November 8, and we will all enjoy a full week off for the Thanksgiving holiday, November 21-25.!
Our IB Learner Profile trait for this month is Thinker. If you are interested in bringing home a conversation about what it means to be a Thinker, consider reading the children's book, The Glorious Flight by Alice and Martin Provensen. The IB Learner Profile can also be broken down to Attitudes for children in grades K-5. Attitudes of IB learners are: respect, cooperation, curiosity, independence, tolerance, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, empathy, appreciation, and integrity. Teachers use the Learner Profile and the Attitudes to guide their interactions and expectations of children in their classrooms.
Remember to "fall back" this weekend as Daylight Savings time ends on Saturday night!
We love being your leaders.

ALB Annual Speech Competition
We are excited about this opportunity to allow students to think, creatively write, and publicly speak in front of an attentive audience. Public speaking is a fear many people experience. Our desire is that this competition will allow our students the ability to view public speaking as an exciting, important form of communication.
Participants: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students
Speech Topic: I am an IB Learner and I Will…
