On Thursday, the Halloween carnival and book fair will be held. Families are encouraged to attend.

The students in Mr. Daniel's class have been studying the mystery of magnetism and developing theories as to what makes a magnet work. To date the students have tested the strength of magnets and demagnetized and remagnetized them. The students also have turned ordinary bolts into magnets, then demagnetized them and made compasses out of pins.

Mrs. Keating's and Mrs. Gustkey's fifth-grade classes will take a field trip to Anchorage on Thursday. The students will visit the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, the Alaska Native Heritage Center and the Alaska Museum of Natural History as part of the class' Native American unit. The teachers and students would like to thank the parents who have volunteered to chaperone all day.

The third-graders in Mr. Knudsen and Mrs. Heath's classes returned from Anchor Point with silver salmon eggs for the salmon incubation tank. The egg-take is one of several educational activities the students have during the school year. The students also toured the Islands and Oceans Visitors Center in Homer during the field trip.
