Amber and Martina have been teaching the students the song, "Brother John," in Dena'ina and made "ush" (snowshoes) out of pipe cleaners. Miss. Sonja is teaching the class animal names, "ta/in" for whale," /uq'a" for salmon, "ggugguyni" for raven, "dah/ika" for eagle, "ggagga" for bear and "dnigi" for moose.
There will be dental screening with the staff from the Dena'ina dental clinic Friday.
The classrooms are continuing with the themes of preparing for winter and home and family.
The Kenai Fire Department visited last week and talked about stop, drop and roll, calling 911 for emergencies, staying low under the smoke in a fire and families needing a safe meeting place. The firefighters also showed the students what they looked and sounded like in their gear, including the air tank. The students toured the fire engine and then the firefighters had to leave on a real emergency.
The Head Start family Thanksgiving dinner will be Nov. 15 at the Kenai Senior Citizens Center.
