ALB CLASSES


Responsive hour

Responsive Hour

  • The ultimate goal within the Responsive Hour is to assure the basic math and reading skills of all students while providing enrichment classes at a variety of levels for students demonstrating proficiency.

  • Students who have demonstrated a need for additional assistance in the area of reading and/or math will be scheduled for classes to address that achievement gap.

  • Students who demonstrate proficiency within their basic math and reading skills will have a choice of enrichment classes to participate in.

  • Band and Choir Students will experience 3 trimester ALB classes in addition to their musical selection.

  • Non Band/Choir students will participate in the same 3 trimester ALB classes and have the opportunity to choose from a menu of enrichment courses.

  • Band and Choir are each a full year commitment.

  • 5TH Grade Band Meeting will be held in August.

Ways to empower your child

Ways to empower your child!

  • Lockers – Take time to teach your child how to open their lockers (instructions are posted in the neighborhoods) and give them the opportunity to practice opening it until they feel confident. Locker combinations need to be kept private for your child’s own protection.

  • Schedule – Review your child’s schedule with them and walk through their day to locate classrooms.

  • Passing Time/Bathroom – Identify times within their schedule to use the restroom, go to their locker and be to class on time. This may seem trivial, but is often an area of concern. Students go to their lockers every few class periods. Not after every class.


Ways to empower your child1

Ways to empower your child!

  • Staff – Remind them that they are not alone in feeling excited, nervous, or uncertain. We are here to help them and know that this will be a transition. Take time to have your son/daughter introduce themselves and you to their teachers. This will help them find friendly faces those first few days of school.

  • Involvement – Encourage your child to get involved with school activities! There are a number of different opportunities including both academic and athletic programs! These activities are promoted during our daily announcement, televised announcements, and our school web page.


Empowering parents

Empowering Parents

  • School View – Parent Portal:

    • Outstanding initiative to improve communication between school and home.

    • Empowers parents to access information on their child’s attendance, grades, lunch account, health information and discipline.

    • Parents Needing Login: Please visit the School Office to obtain login information.

  • Teacher Web Pages:

    • Updated weekly and contain information regarding lessons and assignments covered and assigned during class. Often have links to online textbooks and class notes when available.
