Tustumena Elementary

Posted: Wednesday, February 25, 2004

Students are competing for this year's Masonic Outstanding Student award. The award goes to a deserving sixth-grader in each elementary school in the district. Academics, attendance, citizenship and community service are considered by the selection committee. The finalists then will write an essay about themselves for evaluation. Past winners from the school are Katie Mills, 2000; Kjersten Skjold, 2001; Heidi Skjold, 2002; and Jesse Carlson, 2003. The Kenai Masonic Lodge No. 11 will conduct its annual awards ceremony April 15 at Kenai Central High School.

A penny war began Feb. 16. The war is being waged between the intermediate and primary students. Pennies are worth one point each, but nickels, dimes and quarters will reduce each side's count by that value. All money raised will be donated to a local charity or a family in need. The war is sponsored by the PTO.

The school forensic competition is scheduled for Tuesday in the school library. Sixth-grade presentations begin at 9:30 a.m.; fifth grade at 1:15 p.m.; and fourth grade at 2:30 p.m. To qualify for district-level competition, students must achieve scores of 4 or above in all sections of the judging rubric. The district event is scheduled for March 13 at KCHS.
