Nominations are now being taken for this year’s Canyons District Teacher of the Year honor. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, Feb. 2. Per tradition, Canyons District recognizes a Teacher of the Year from every Canyons school for outstanding teaching practices, professionalism, and community involvement.
From that field, one overall Teacher of the Year is selected to represent the District in the state top-teacher competition and receives the 2018 CSD Apex Award for Teacher of the Year — the highest award given to teachers by the Canyons Board of Education.
Every school-based Teacher of the Year receives gifts and prizes donated by CSD’s generous business partners.
This year, the Board and Administration will announce one top teacher from the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Those three will receive additional honors, which will be presented at an April 24 community celebration and announcement of our overall Canyons Teacher of the Year.

This year's Albion Geography Bee was held on January 4. Students answered an array of questions about all things geography and wowed the audience with their understanding. To follow are this year's winners:
Third Place – 6th grader Jeremy Baker
Second Place – 7th grader Nick Belko
First Place – 8th grader Jared Kimball. Jared will be taking an online test in the next few weeks that will determine if he will qualify for the State Geography Bee at the University of Utah held in April. His Albion competition was very strong and we are all extremely impressed and proud of this stellar student! Good luck Jared!
Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It's a "big bright beautiful" world as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairytale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
Please join our amazing Albion Middle School musical cast and crew February 5, 6, 7, or 9 at 7 PM. Tickets are free, but you must have a ticket for entrance. These tickets can be downloaded/printed here.
