Wednesday, March 2nd, Diomede School will be honoring the prolific Dr. Seuss by participating in "Read Across America." We will be performing many of his works and offering green eggs and spam as an afternoon snack. Come on over and join in on the fun! To learn more about NEA's Read Across America program and for free projects, books, and programs, look here.
As part of the "Kids Don't Float" program, Sarah and Hamilton from the United States Coast Guard came to Diomede for a brief visit and presentation. Not only did we get a serenade of Shirley Temple's "Good Ship Lolly-Pop" for our morning assembly, but we also got to stick our hands in freezing cold water to demonstrate how one should put on a life jacket before going out on the water. Always remember: "The best life jacket is the one you have."
Ski Club is back, and it's badder than ever! Now that we have Brenda, James, and Andrew helping out, we can take out as many as 20 kids at a time (That's more kids than we even have)! I've also managed to rustle up some more skis buried away in the dark corners of the school and surrounding buildings. There is the issue of us not having any snow, but in the meantime, we'll be heading out for hikes in our snow gear to get our muscles ready for skiing. Please join us Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:45 pm to 4:30 pm. Make sure to bring plenty of warm gear.
