Home of the Wildcats!

 

Albin Elementary staff members are dedicated to supporting students on their educational journey.  We will continue to work with parents to implement high expectations for academic achievement and student conduct while having a lot of fun along the way. We look forward to continuing a long-standing tradition of excellent and captivating learning opportunities.

 

The Albin School Community knows that there are no shortcuts when it comes to success in academics and life. With the use of innovative technology and inspiring instruction, students have unique opportunities to acquire the academic knowledge and skills that will prepare them for competitive high schools, colleges, and successful futures.

 

Please feel free to discuss the Character Strengths and Corresponding Behaviors with the child or children in your life. Positive reinforcement of these behaviors at home is greatly appreciated. Parents certainly are the most important people in their children’s lives. You have a powerful impact on your child’s education and social development. We appreciate you!
