We have THE BEST administration imaginable here at Albion! Here's a little bit of proof: As a result of achieving out Book Fair sales goal of $4,500, Mr. Jameson and Ms. Lloyd agreed to eat a collection of delicious...BUGS! As you can see, neither of them was anxious for seconds.

This week (February 27 to March 3) is White Ribbon Week at Albion. White Ribbon Week is a positive school program presented by our PTSA and teachers that helps kids make healthy choices in media and technology. Students will learn learn about healthy meda habits, which are reinforced through discussions and fun activities.
Each day we will focus on a different challenge. To follow is our Power Boost schedule:
Monday: I will use technology to show kindness and respect. (Students will be encouraged to send a positive online or written message.)
Tuesday: I will give priority to real life relationships (Students will designate a "device-free zone at home.)
Wednesday: I will choose healthy activities to handle stress and boredom. (Students will be challenged to tell a parent three healthy alternatives to media when they are stressed.)
Thursday: I willl choose to balance my day. (Students will complete a circle graph demonstrating how they typically prioritize their time and will be asked to share this information with a parent.)
Friday: I will remember that not everything online is real. (Students will take part in object-lesson games during lunch.)
We encourage parents to speak with their children about these daily challenges and activities and enjoy a dialogue about how media and technology is influencing your lives.
