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.
Kali School will once again be utilizing our Qavvik Pride (PBIS) rewards system. This rewards system is designed to promote the Respectful, Responsible, and Cooperative behavior of all students. Through demonstrating Respectful, Responsible, and Cooperative behavior in and out of school, our students are making Kali a fun place to be and a safe and exciting place to learn. Rewards such as a bonfire, throwing a pie in Mr. Cole’s face, or water balloon volleyball are earned by students going above and beyond in demonstrating these three attributes and are recorded through the use of Qavvik Pride Reward tickets. As a whole, the Kali Student Body can earn larger rewards such as a fall or spring carnival upon reaching 500 reward tickets.
If you are interested in volunteering to help out with any of the upcoming Qavvik Pride rewards or any other activities at the school, please contact Principal Cole or your child’s teacher. Having a successful school is truly a product of everyone working together!
