Dear Parents and Guardians,

I want to thank the families of students that came and participated in Parent Teacher Conferences last week. Some classes had 100% participation! Thank you, Marie, for coordinating both P/T Conferences and last week’s book fair.  


The NSBSD Board of Education is searching for a new superintendent. On March 29th from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. we have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of the top 3 superintendent candidates via VTC. Come join us in the library and provide the NSBSD Board of Education with your input.

We know that inservices, teacher trainings, during the school week disrupt the regular work day activities for some families. However, on Friday our teachers learned more about our new statewide test called PEAKS. Teachers also worked on some place based units. We have some great units in development, from origin stories, to Kaktovik numerals, to birds of Kaktovik. The Saturday Cultural Inservice has been postponed until April 8th.

PEAKS Testing, Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools, begins Tuesday, March 28 for grades 3-8. Tuesday and Wednesday, our 3rd-8th grade students will be tested in English Language Arts (Reading and Writing). On Thursday and Friday, those same students will be tested in Math, Parts 1 & 2. The following week, students in grades 9-10 will be tested. 

The Gym Dedication is scheduled for April 4th at 11:00 am. The NSB Assembly will be in Kaktovik and will be part of the dedication. Please join us.
