Lots of organizations, businesses show support for schools, kids
The 2000-01 Nikiski Elementary PTA board of directors would like to say "thank you" to the community for all of its support this year, including:
The Nikiski Fire Department sponsored the "Smoke House" demonstration and the Cook Inlet Lions Club provided the "mini-flasher lights" for all of our students. What a wonderful gift idea to provide for the safety of our children as they walk to and from the bus each day. The state Department of Transportation donated a box of large plastic bags. Our students celebrated Earth Week by picking up the trash on and around the school grounds and the trash bags were a big help. The McDonald's in Kenai provided all of our "Students in Good Standing" for the month of March with a coupon for a small order of french fries.
The Kenai Elks Club and Alaska State Troopers (Trooper Steve Stanton) sponsored DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education program) for our fifth-grade students. After the students graduated from the program, they invited all of the students to a skating party at Alaska Great Skate. The Nikiski pool sponsored an "all-school swim" in May. What a wonderful and much needed treat! Central Peninsula General Hospital sent out Safety Seal who shared some important messages with our children.
Primo Pizza has been a supporter now for a few years. Each year they give each of our students and staff members a certificate for a free birthday pizza. What a special treat! Three area churches have volunteered their food and services to provide a breakfast program to our students five days a week. A sincere thank you to North Star United Methodist Church, Aurora Heights Assembly of God and North Kenai Baptist Church.
As other organizations who promote the welfare of our children, we applaud you all!

Kenai seniors appreciate use of KCHS computer lab, help
The Kenai Senior Center would like to thank Kenai Central High School for graciously allowing us to use its computer lab. Thanks to KCHS, we were able to offer computer education to more than 50 seniors!
A special thank you goes to Hank Overturf and Rich Bartolowitz from KCHS for their support and to all the volunteer help throughout the classes: Aaron Rahlfs, Steve Crane, Dan English, Ray Marquis, Marti Pepper, Lynn Wheeler, Carolyn Pirak and Bill Nelson. It was wonderful to see our community work together to provide some valuable education for those seniors who are still learning and growing and getting the most out of life!
On behalf of the seniors, thank you.
