 This past week there were fingerprints to be found everywhere. The Forensics class did their fingerprinting lab . It was a fun learning experience for the students.

You always find some kind of exciting thing happening in one of Ms. Grants classes here at the ALC. Whether it's in her EMR class, her Anatomy class, or her Forensics class. She is constantly keeping the students engaged in hands on learning. She is an amazing teacher, the students love her, and the ALC is lucky to have her.

We at the ALC would like to take this moment to say , "Our Hats go off, to the amazing person at our school who wears so many different hats each day." THANK YOU to our amazing secretary, Miranda Hjorth.

When you walk into our school, Miranda is the first person you see. She is NEVER without a smile on her face, and is always willing to help whoever needs it. The teachers, parents, and students all love her and consider her a friend. 

She truly is the backbone of our school and we wouldn't be the school that we are without her.

Last Friday was the ALC principal, Wade Tischner's last day at the ALC.   Mr. Tischner is leaving for basic training and then after training, will be deployed to the Middle East.

We have thoroughly enjoyed having him this past year, as our principal. His leadership skills, his positive attitude,  and his genuine concern for the welfare of the ALC will certainly be missed.
