Friday will be minimum day, and students will be dismissed at 1:55 p.m.

Mr. Daniels' and Miss Dike's classes made a journey of discovery to Anchorage last week. The classes participated in hands-on learning activities, lectures and film sessions at the Alaska Native Heritage Center and the Anchorage Museum of Natural History and Art. An additional stop was made at Big Game Alaska on the return trip. While there, the students were able to view many animals including Hugo, the brown bear. The students also were able to ask many questions of the guide who accompanied them on the tour.

Mrs. Keating's class will celebrate Pumpkin Day on Friday. They will measure, weigh, read and write about pumpkins. Students also will enjoy a pumpkin eating treat.

Mr. Vedders' and Mr. Knudsen's third-grade classes toured Trail Lakes Hatchery, participated in the Alaska Fish and Game Egg-Take on Bear Creek and toured the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward last week. The students placed the eggs in their salmon incubation tank at the school immediately upon returning to school. The silver salmon eggs will grow and develop into fry before they are released into a landlocked lake next spring.

The staff would like to congratulate Zack Sonnichsen, Morgan Cunningham, Lincoln Wensley, James Watkins, Isaac Cryer, Casey Crowder, Natalie Kurzendoerfer, Brittany Cupp, McKenna Murray, Olivia Fair and Brad Bible, who represented the school at the district Mind-A-Mazes competition Oct. 4.
