Incredibles Butterfly Garden
The incredibles have worked very hard in our Butterfly Garden.  It is precious to us.  So, please be safe around our garden and respectful of the butterflies in our garden.  In case you did not know, Monarch butterflies are endangered.  This garden is a haven and feeding site for Monarch Butterflies along with other butterflies.  We hope you enjoy the video we made showing you the garden and how we would like people to behave around it.

For Parents -Meeting of Friends of St. Albans City School FSACS (Formerly the SACS PTA)
Please join us in the St. Albans City School Library on September 30th (Wednesday), at 6:00 pm for a presentation by Dan Ozimek on Child Internet Safety. Our children are utilizing this valuable tool more often and at an earlier age. It's important that we as parents understand what is lurking out there and how to make sure that we can keep our children's learning environment safe. This learning opportunity is expected to last 30-45 minutes.

Hope to see you there!  Chad Spooner
