Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to begin this week’s letter by offering my congratulations to the Middle School Lego Robotic Team and Coach Katie on their amazing performance on Saturday at the virtual meet. The students worked well as a team and were able to win 3rd place in the Robot Design category. They also were named Grand Champions! This means that they were the regional winners and will be traveling to Anchorage for the state meet in January. I am so proud of each one of the students. They did an excellent job!
The seniors will continue selling raffle tickets for a pair of children’s mitts, a fur hat, and a pair of mukluks. Thank you to Norma Gordon and Clara Sittichinli for the handmade items. Tickets are $1.00 each. Tickets can be purchased from the seniors- Caitlin, Nick, Melanie, Kasey, Mike and Daisy. The drawing will be held at the Christmas Program on December 11. You do not need to be present to win.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks will be coming to Kaktovik on December 7. They will be bringing a portable planetarium and sharing information on the stars and the Northern Lights. They will be showing a video as well. “Kiguguyat: The Northern Lights” is full of information about the aurora by both Inupiat peoples and UAF Geophysical Institute scientists. The 25-minute video, produced by the GI’s Cultural Connections project will be shown several times throughout the afternoon to students, teachers, staff and interested community members at Harold Kaveolook on Thursday, December 7, 2017.
The Christmas Program will be held on Monday, December 11 at 6:00.
There are still some issues with children being on the track and in the weight room during night rec. For their safety, there is to be no one under high-school age on the track or in the weight room and there should not be any children present at adult night rec.
Finally, the last day of school before Christmas vacation begins is Wednesday, December 13. School will dismiss at 2:30. School will resume on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. As people begin to leave for vacations and the holidays, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
As always, please feel free to stop by the school if you have questions, concerns, or simply to see what’s going on.
Todd Washburn, Principal
