    Dear Parents and Guardians,   


    Mark your calendars- there will be no school this Friday, January 18 due to a district-wide teacher in-service.  Enjoy your three-day weekend!

    I would like to continue this week by congratulating our Rams Boys’ Basketball team.  For many of the players, this was their first set of games on the varsity team.  It was an honor to watch them play together, guided by their older captain and coach.  There was a lot of talent on the court this weekend and it will be pretty cool to watch them develop into the amazing players that they will become.

    Thank you so much to everyone that braved the cold to come out and support the players this weekend.  Thank you also to all those that helped make this weekend a success.  The decorations were skillfully done- thank you, students and Flora.  Thank you to Bugsy and Rick for keeping everyone so well fed!  Thank you to Amanda for organizing the teams and keeping the books.  Thanks to Nathaniel and TK for running the scoreboard.  Thank you to Phillip for doing a great job as a referee.  Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Lamar for your tireless work in the student store.  Thank you to the maintenance staff, especially Kayu and Richmond, for keeping the school clean and safe.  Thank you to Rita for getting all the students and coaches to and from the airport safely.  Finally, thank you to the community of Kaktovik for your support this weekend!

    There are boys’ more home games scheduled for January 25-26.    

    Congratulations to the Middle School Lego Robotics team who qualified to attend the state competition. 

    There will be a School Advisory Council Meeting on Tuesday, January 15 at 6:00 in the library.

    There is basketball travel scheduled for this weekend.  Amanda and the Lady Rams are scheduled to go to Norvik, while Ian and the Boys’ Basketball Team are scheduled to travel to Nuiqsut.  Best of luck, Rams!!!

    There will be Girl Scouts this week on Monday from 6-8.  Cookie sale pre-orders have begun.  Please see any Girl Scout to place an order.  All boxes are $5.00 and the cookies should arrive at the end of February. 

    There should be swimming on Tuesday and Thursday from 6-7 for pre-k through 3rd grade and 7-8 for 4th grade and up.  Please check the Kaktovik Announcements Facebook Page for any changes. 

    Community Craft Night will be held on Wednesday from 6-9.

    There will be normal Battle of the Books practices this week.  Battle of the Books will continue to meet each week until the battle occurs in early February.  The schedule for practice is as follows: 







    3rd-4th Grade


    High School


    5th-6th Grade


    7th-8th Grade




    Just a reminder that the district has adopted a new snow makeup day policy.  When school is canceled because of inclement weather, the day will be made up on Saturday of the following week.  When that occurs, we will be making a number of posts on the Kaktovik Announcements Facebook page to remind everyone.

    As always, please feel free to stop by the school if you have questions, concerns, or simply to see what’s going on.
