The third-graders are participating in an IditaRead race to Nome. For every 15 minutes a student reads, he or she gets to move one checkpoint closer to Nome. There will be a Nome celebration March 19 for all children completing the trail.
Students in Mr. Vedders' and Mr. Knudsen's classes learned how to tie fishing flies. Each student was provided a vice and all the necessary materials by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Students tied flies in the four stages of a developing salmon: egg, eyed egg, alevin and fry. The teachers and students would like to thank all of the fishery biologists and parent volunteers who made the activity a success.
The staff would like to congratulate the winners of the Kenai Middle School-Mountain View talent show. EJ Ismael won first place. Second place went to Chelsea O'Hara and third place was McKenna Murray.
