Mr. Michael's fourth-grade class is taking part in an in-depth study of Pacific salmon and the role they play here on the peninsula. One of the activities will involve maintaining an incubation tank to hatch coho salmon. The students will observe the coho fries emerge from eggs and progress to the alevin stage. In May, the fish will be released back into their natural habitat. On Nov. 7, the class was able to take part in a salmon dissection demonstration by staff from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Students gained a new appreciation for the complexity of salmon and how they function. The students thank the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for assisting with this educational experience.
The PTO reminds families that the first Bingo Fun Night is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday. Prizes include turkeys and hams. For the children, there will be "LYNXO for Books" in the library.
The staff and students thank the Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Jerry V. Horn Memorial Post No. 10046 for its generous contribution of $300. The donation benefits the students by offsetting the travel costs for Lynx Tracks activities or special programs at the school.
