Did you know Utah was one of the first states to enact laws to protect and provide hope to victims of sextortion? Parents, don’t miss this free seminar featuring Michelle Busch-Upwall from the Utah Attorney General’s Office. Busch-Upwall, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce, will discuss ways for parents to safeguard their children from sexting and a form of blackmail known as sextortion while offering tips for what to do if you encounter it. The Jan. 15 event will be held at Indian Hills Middle, but is open to all Canyons District parents and high-school-age students. Families are advised to leave younger children at home due to the mature nature of the presentation. Certificated Canyons District employees who attend the event are eligible for one hour of credit toward re-licensure.
The Albion Ambassadors ran a service activity through the organization “Operation Gratitude.” The Ambassadors, along with other Albion students who volunteered, had the opportunity to write letters to show their appreciation for our deployed troops, veterans, first responders, and wounded heroes and their caregivers. Each letter will be sent to Operation Gratitude and included in a care package. Thank you service men and women!

It is time for our annual Albion Holiday Cereal Drive! Albion students have the goal to collect 2,000 cereal boxes to donate to two elementary schools in Canyons District that serve a majority of low-income families. These elementary schools have students that depend on the school for breakfast and lunch each day. During our two-week Winter Recess, these students do not have school meals available to them. Albion’s donations supplement the meals they will be missing during the break. We will be collecting boxes in our second period classes from December 9-18. The two classes with the most boxes donated will receive donut parties. Please donate generously in our quest to collect 2,000 boxes of cereal!
