This year’s Albion Cereal Drive was a HUGE success! Our students had the goal of collecting 3,000 cereal boxes to donate to Title 1 schools in our district. Albion students, with the support of their parents, collected just under 3,450 cereal boxes! We were so thrilled with the participation in this drive, and the two schools that received that cereal were incredibly grateful. Thank you to all those who helped us achieve our goal!
Our Albion cereal drive is December 11-15. We are sponsoring this drive to benefit students of Title I elementary schools within Canyons School District. The cereal will provide a special population of students with a gift/treat during the Winter Break. We are asking for fun cereals that these students might not otherwise receive such as Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Frosted Mini Wheats, etc. Please donate generously, if possible. Students will bring the unopened boxes to their 2nd period teachers. The two classes with the highest total of boxes donated will receive doughnut parties!

Albion is dedicated to being proactive in the effort to help our students be safe, responsible, and informed with their use of the internet and social media. Passing notes in class has been replaced with under-the-desk texting, just as hard-bound encyclopedias have been replaced with online databases and search engines. This shift in resources means a shift in mentality, and we encourage you as parents to discuss your family’s online expectations and safety boundaries.
Click here for an infographic to help you get started in this discussion. This document details: handling both the positive and negative aspects of social media, keeping online profiles and communications safe and responsible, using new online tools for study aides and research, and more.
We want all of our students to become fluent in their digital literacy for both academic and social purposes, but, more importantly, we want them to be safe. We encourage you to discuss these topics with your family members and let us know how we as teachers and administrators can help.
