Big shout out to the Central Minnesota Federal Credit Union for a most excellent tour!
On a beautiful spring morning, Mrs. Hoeschen‘s class was the first group of first-graders to hike to CMFCU and attend a tour of the Albany branch. We were able to stroll behind the teller desks and sent a Huskie toy through the drive-through shoot. FUN! We also watched as coins were sorted and counted… A handy tool for our piggy banks. Thank you so much Albany Credit Union!
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!

Advanced Math students create jeopardy games to help prepare themselves and classmates for the MCA tests.
In 7th grade math class this last week, Mr. Fragodt's advanced math students created MCA Jeopardy Boards to prepare for the upcoming MCA tests. Students were allowed to choose the categories, topics, and questions, as well as set up how their board would look. Mr. Fragodt did not want to put too many restrictions on the boards, as 7th grade students have very creative and unique design ideas. The students were also instructed to create an answer key, requiring them to answer all of the questions they created for extra practice.
Once these boards were completed, the entire 7th grade got to benefit from the students' hard work. All classes the following day got to play jeopardy using one of their classmates' creations. Although some of the questions were difficult and challenging to complete, students worked hard and enjoyed playing jeopardy. The students understand that the MCA tests will be difficult, but that it is okay to work through these tough questions. With the MCA tests coming up, Mr. Fragodt reminded students that the best thing they can do is to get a good night sleep, have a good breakfast, and to do your best. Hopefully students can do those few things and we are all confident they will succeed.
