Diomede School will be participating in the Heavenly Hats campaign to bring awareness to cancer survivors and raise money to fight the cell mutation. For a donation of $1.00, you can wear a hat in and about the school. Even if you bring your own hat, that $1.00 will get you a complementary hat. This will take place from 8:50 AM on October 9th to 3:30 PM. To find out more about the Heavenly Hat foundation, check out their official website here.
Even though our friend, Jeroen Toirkens has left back to Anchorage, Wednesday, September 16 will still be picture day. Diomede School gym will be open from 8:30 AM to 9:10 AM for family and student portraits. This service is free and can be shared online. Swing on by for some semi-professional photography.
This weekend, Jeroen Toirkens (an international photographer from Holland) came to Diomede. He'll be staying at the school, but going out into the community and the island to photograph Diomede's beauty. Next Wednesday (September 16, 2015) he will be taking portraits of our entire school! If you would like a family portrait, come on in from 8:30 AM TO 9:30 AM on the 16th. Check out Jeroen's amazing books on Amazon.com here!
