The lower-grade students had a fun time following their adopted mushers as they ran the Iditarod. Each student had a dog they moved across a map of the race as they checked the progress of their racer each day. This fit in perfectly with their study of Alaska's history and geography this semester in social studies.
The staff congratulates seventh-grader Tom Werth. He received notification that he qualified for the state level National Geographic geography bee to be held in Anchorage on April 2. He will compete against 99 other fourth- through eighth-graders for the state championship and a trip to the national contest in Washington, D.C.
The staff also congratulates fourth-grader Luke Burow and third-grader Kenny Werth for passing all their math facts tests at the rate of 100 facts in five minutes. Both boys will strive ahead to now pass all the operations in four minutes.
The upper grades continue their study of art through history as they construct ancient Greek buildings using plaster of Paris.
