    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    There will be no school on Thursday, September 20 and Friday, September 21 due to a district-wide in-service.  Teachers across the district will be working with specialists on creating culturally safe schools. 

    There will be a School Advisory Council meeting on Tuesday, September 18 at 6:00 in the library.

    The photographer did not make it in last week.  We will be working to reschedule their visit.  Once we have a new date, we will pass that information along.

    Harold Kaveolook School hosted a cross country meet this past Saturday.  Congratulations to Flossie, Natasha, and Sean on an excellent job completing the 3.1 mile course.  A very special congratulations goes out to Flossie, who earned 1st place!  Thank you very much to everyone that helped organize and execute the meet.  Thank you to the school’s athletic coordinator, Amanda, and to Coach Lamar for all your hard work making sure this was a successful event.  Thank you also to Bugsy and Randy for providing such wonderful food for all the visiting students.  Finally, thank you to all those that came out to help as spotters or just to cheer our athletes on. I really appreciate all of you!  The cross-country team will be traveling this Wednesday, September 19 to Point Lay for the Regional Competition.  Best of luck to all the runners! 

    There will be Girl Scouts Monday, September 17, unless the whaling crews are successful.  The Daisies (K-1) and Brownies (2-3) will meet from 6-7 and the Cadettes (4-5) and Juniors (6-9) will meet from 7-8 in the home ec. room.

    Finally, I would like to wish all of the whaling crews safety and success during the season.  As always, please feel free to stop by the school if you have questions, concerns, or simply to see what’s going on.
