Thanks to the generous donation of Mark and Gwen Kranz from Sauk Centre, each Third Grade student at Albany Elementary received a personal dictionary to help them grow as learners. We all know the importance of words and how expanding our vocabulary helps us become stronger readers. We are grateful to have the Kranz’s as partners in the education of our children!

A neon yellow Shrek flash mob descended on Albany Elementary before the spring musical perfomances.
The cast of April's spring musical performed a flash mob for Albany Elementary students as they loaded the buses after school last Friday.
The performers sang and danced to a number from the show to promote "Shrek the Musical" which took place over the weekend.
The musical was a rip-roaring success and the students and directors did a fantastic job!
See our Twitter or Instagram accounts (both @ISD745) to view a video of the performance!
