Principal's Message

  • Fall Message

    In this time of Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season, I want to express my appreciation for the Albert Hill community. I am thankful for the teachers, staff, students, parents, and community stakeholders that contribute to the success of Albert Hill. As we approach the end of the first semester, we will continue to build relationships and create a sense of belonging for all students. Every Tiger, Every Day! We will lead the charge together as we continue our work to ensure that Every Tiger is held to high academic expectations that meets their individual needs, and exhibits Tiger P.R.I.D.E. as we recite together each morning. Thank you for everything you do to support our students and our school. Together we are stronger than the sum of every individual. In partnership, Tashiana Ivy

  • Did you know you can link your Kroger account to Albert Hill so that the school receives rewards from every purchase you make?

     Here’s how you do it -- first, open up your Kroger app. In the top right corner of the app, from the opening screen hit the four square symbol in the top right corner. Then press My Account, and then Community Rewards under the Loyalty tab. It'll ask you to sign in with your email address, and then all you have to do is search for Albert Hill.

     It couldn’t be easier to support Albert Hill!
