Brought back by parent request, every Thursday night will now be movie night in the gym! Movies will be selected by popular vote once a month. Popcorn will be avaliable for purchase for $1.00 a bag with full refills for only 25¢! All funds will go towards Diomede Schools Future Educators of Alaska fund. Water will be provided. Please no pop, juice, or other sticky drinks. Feel free to bring your own mats and pads. Some will be provided. All attendees under 7 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Movie schedules will be posted at the school, post, and store. Talk to Rob for more information.
Every Friday in October, we will be making Halloween decorations, costume props, and other seasonal crafts. If you would like to build origami pumpkins, tissue ghosts, cardboard Spartan/Norse helmets, or plaster masks, drop on by the cafeteria at 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Have something else you'd like to work on? No problem! Just let us know and I'll rustle up some materials.
Parent teacher conferences will be held from 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20th. One lucky attending parent will win a drawing for a gift certificate at the Diomede Native Store. I hope to see you there!
On Saturday, October 31, Diomede School will be hosting our annual Halloween festivities. Last year we had a chilling haunted house. This year we'll open up the gym from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for a Halloween carnival, with games, tickets, prizes, music, and more! There will even be a costume contest at the end! Bring all your family and friends for a real hoot of a time!
Since last Wednesday, October 7, the entire village of Diomede was without internet or phone service. We are back up for the time being. Here's hoping for continued communication with the outside world.
