Albertville Primary

Welcome to Albertville Primary

Welcome to Albertville Primary School! Our school is a child-centered learning community dedicated to ensuring the success of all students. We recognize and celebrate that each child is unique with individual hopes and dreams. Our mission is to lay the foundation of education to inspire and help develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We are excited to partner with families and the community to maximize each student's academic, social, and emotional growth.


Preschool-Daycare Informational Meetings Planned

We believe that children receive the best education when parents, schools, caregivers, daycares, and community members work as a team. Recognizing that strong partnerships are a key ingredient in each child’s success, kindergarten and preschool teachers have developed a comprehensive brochure of skills to assure success for students entering kindergarten. To download a copy of the brochure, “Is My Child Ready for Kindergarten?” click here. Also, visit the Kindergarten Readiness page on the Albertville Primary web site to learn more about helping your child get ready for kindergarten.

We will conduct informational meetings to discuss the skills named in the brochure and share resources with you. We will meet on Thursday, March 19th at 6 pm or Tuesday, March 24th at 7 pm at Albertville Primary School’s Media Center. We will answer any questions you have about the skills needed for your child’s success and share many skill-building resources. Certificates of attendance will be issued for licensure and advertising purposes for daycare providers.

Area daycares and preschools will be mailed an invitational letter the week of March 2. To download a copy of the letter, click here.

Please call 763-497-2688 for more information.

Why School Funding Matters To Your Child

Why School Funding Matters To Your Child Video

Our state's current policy for funding public education is grossly inequitable, irrational, and inexplicable.

  • STMA ranks last in general education revenue per pupil excluding the local referendum among 335 Minnesota public school districts.
  • STMA receives over $2,100 less in total revenue per pupil compared to the state average of $9,000.

Background Checks

Because of the importance of student safety, the STMA District requires all volunteers and chaperones to complete a background check. Only one background check is required for the entire time that your child is enrolled in ISD 885. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 497-2688.

Conner V., Tommy H., and Jared D. all had 7 points, Zander R. netted 4, and Jack O. and Dylan W. each knocked down a shot as well.  The A team saw their four game winning streak come to an end, as they were unable to figure out the Big Lake zone defense, dropping the game by a score of 49-42.
