2017-2018 School Year is Almost Here!

Purple on Purpose ~ what a great statement! It’s far more than the fact that we are all here on purpose. To be Purple on Purpose is to understand the impact we can have because we are here. Our purpose reaches far beyond the walls of our school and is characterized by how we enhance the lives of others.

Without a doubt we are about building knowledge in subject matter that stretches across a wide variety of topics. But knowledge is just part of our greater purpose. At Alburnett we are growing thinkers, entrepreneurs, designers, problem solvers, and problem FINDERS! When we endeavor to do grow students in this way, we enhance not just their lives but the lives of others as well. And that my fellow Pirates is what it means to be Purple on Purpose!

The 2017-2018 school year is right around the corner, and the excitement for all we can accomplish together is building. Our programming is growing with an expansion of the Project Lead the Way curriculum into the elementary and into the field of engineering. Our facilities continue to evolve with updates to the preschool rooms (notice the “s” on rooms) and the secondary library transformation. South Campus, located at 115 Main St. is almost ready. And wow…the strength and conditioning program this summer…just wow. Way to go students!

Reminder to all that you are welcome to visit, call, or email at any time if you have questions or suggestions. We look forward to seeing you at the School & Community Forum that is held on the first Monday of each month from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. in the Board Room. Please note September will be held on Tuesday the 5th due to the holiday.
