The student population of Kali School, which houses K3 through 12th grade, is indicative of the demographics of the village of Point Lay as a whole. The school maintains a student population between 90 and 100 students of largely Iñupiaq Eskimo heritage. The student teacher ratio at Kali School runs approximately 9:1 and the minor ratio of the entire village as compared to adults over 18 years of age is approximately 2:1. As represented by the schools mascot, the Wolverine (Qavvik), Kali School students have a fighting spirit and are active in numerous academic and athletic events.
On Monday, September 19th the community of Point Lay and Kali School took a well-deserved break to enjoy a nice day around a bonfire. This bonfire was designed as a reward for the Kali School students and their parents for the wonderful start to the school year. As the Kali School Principal, Mr. Cole said, “our students are off to a great start. They have had wonderful attendance and are doing a fantastic job of demonstrating respect, responsibility, and cooperation.” Respect, responsibility, and cooperation are the three areas of focus for the Kali School “Qavvik Pride” rewards program. This program is dedicated to improving student behavior and therefore enhancing student learning. All those in attendance at this year’s bonfire went away with a smile on their face and gratitude for the North Slope Mayor’s Office and their help in supplying the hotdogs, marshmallows, fruit, and candy bars to eat around the fire. A big THANK YOU goes out from all of us here at Kali School!
Kali School Qavvik, Stephanie Lane wins this year's Qavvik Invitational cross-country race for the girls, while Ethan Tukrook places first amongst the boys and Burton Rexford and Stephen Nukapiagak respectfully win second and fourth place. This year's teams came from Point Hope, Nuiqsut, Atqasuk, and Kaktovik. While weather conditions were less than optimal, participants forced to battle 25-30 mph winds, with blowing snow and rain. All participants appeared to enjoy the competition and were enthusiastically cheered on by a supportive Point Lay crowd.
