All state camp at Wartburg!

[08/05/18]   All state parents-

Reminder that students going to Wartburg should be at the high school by 8:30 tomorrow. I will be escorting them there, but will not be staying in Waverly. I will come home tomorrow and then meet them there to escort them home on Tuesday. I am planning on spending most of the day there tomorrow. Thanks!

[08/01/18]   I just sent this email to all state students-

Hello students!

I don't think I'm going to make it back into the choir room before I start teaching at Spencer's all state camp, so feel free to email me if you need something. If you haven't already gotten your music, you can pick it up at Central Office.

Thanks everyone!

Mr. Orban

[07/30/18]   Hello everyone! My name is Mr. (Adam) Orban and I am your new 9-12 Vocal Music Director at Algona! My wife and family just moved to town on the 17th of July and then I was gone for a choral convention from the 22nd to the 26th and now I'm ready to dig in! I am originally from LeMars and am a graduate from Morningside College. I have previously taught in Shenandoah, Sheldon, and most recently Glenwood. My wife, Jill, will be teaching K-6 music at Seaton and Garrigan. We have four children: Owen, 4th grade; Ethan and Natalie, 2nd grade: and Isaac, 4 year old pre-school.

I will be in my office from 10:00-12:30ish tomorrow (Monday) for anyone who wants to get their all-state music. After that I will put the music in Central Office for you to pick up when you can. We are meeting at 8:30 on Sunday for those of you who are going to the Wartburg All-State camp from the 5-7th. We will but there as you usually have (barring confirmation with the transportation director which will take place tomorrow). If you have any questions or concerns, please email me!
