Our school would not be as efficient and as fun without those wonderful, behind the scene people who add SO much to every day things going on here at the ALC!
We are so grateful for the support staff we have here at the ALC who do their jobs every day, with a smile and who are always trying to make things nicer for everyone here.
We couldn't function without you!!!
HUGE THANK YOU TO :
Gerald, Chad, Jay, Jason, Gene, Hayden, Karley, Paige, Brenda, And Gaye.
You can accomplish ANYTHING if you work as a team. Mr. Albright's class has been doing team building activities for the past two weeks. Today they finished some of them off by jump roping.
It takes teamwork in order to make jump roping work. You need one person on each end to turn the rope or else nothing happens for the person in the middle to be able to jump the rope. He talked to them about how each person is important in order to accomplish a goal. If even one person is missing, things aren't accomplished the way they would have been without everyone.
"It's been a fun and eventful week at the ALC as we are hosting our Utah College Application Week. This is an amazing opportunity for ALL students to learn and prepare to attend college someday--not just our seniors! Because there are so many kinds of colleges and degrees, college can be a reality for everybody.
Ms. Beyal is one of the favorite guest speakers that the Elementary Education Block has come every year. She has all the students line up and put their hands out. Then she has them compare the color of their own hands with everyone else around them. The interesting thing about this experiment is that there is NO TWO HAND COLORS ALIKE! She then talks to them about differences and about not judging people according to their race or color. It is a very eye-opening exercise for the students.
It is always fun to have guest speakers come into the classroom. But the Education Block loves when Mr. Ralph Jamsa comes to visit and teach them team building activities. Mr. Jamsa came and taught the students a rope team building activity that had them concentrating and using their thinking and teamwork skills.
Thank you Mr. Jamsa for taking time out to benefit the students here at the ALC with your knowledge and expertise.

Mr. Albright is constantly giving his elementary education classes some fun hands-on activities. This past week they were able to do one, in particular, is entitled, The Acid River.
"Acid River" as an outdoor opening activity to warm up the group. It also requires people to get into each other's personal space which helps open them up and begin to connect with each other more quickly.
This activity can be used to stimulate insights into problem-solving, strategy, challenging, collaboration, teamwork, communication, mutual support, encouragement, and celebration.
A college education is the KEY to your future, which can be anything from a one-year certificate to a four-year degree and beyond. This week at the ALC, we are hosting our Utah College Application Week (UCAW), which acquaints all our students with the importance of preparing for and attending college.
This week is College Application week at the ALC. Our counselor, Annette Pukahi, has worked very hard to get a week of information and material out to all the students here at the ALC. She has swag, videos on the importance of college, and college bingo games for the students to do throughout the week. She is also helping the Seniors fill out College applications.
This week will be used in helping the students get the resources and knowledge of how to apply for colleges, and the importance of stepping up to their own education and plan to go to college.
