Coast Guard Visit

Last night, a United States Coast Guard vessel anchored just north of Diomede. Today they have been very busy removing industrial and technological waste from the island. Several sailors popped into the school for a brief Q&A session. They will be heading south this evening to dispose of the waste.

Welcome Back!

The teachers arrived on Diomede on Tuesday and have been busy putting together classrooms and attending important trainings for the upcoming school year. The first day of school will be Wednesday, August 17, 2016. Doors will open at 8:00 am, breakfast will be served at 8:15 am. Adults can join their students for both breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is $4 per visitor, and lunch is $7. School will conclude at our usual 3:30 pm closing time. We look forward to seeing you all. Please feel free to contact any of our new or returning teachers with questions you may have.

It's great to be back on the island!

A Warm Welcome

Please join me in welcoming our two new teachers: Leah Stanek and Kristina Benitez! Frank Stanek has returned as well (he taught ECE here in the spring of 2015). While Frank is our principal, he will also be co-teaching high school with his wife, Leah. Kristina (who taught in Wales for the last two years) will be teaching our younger ones downstairs next to Mr. Rob's room. If you have any questions for our new and returning teachers, please feel free to e-mail, call, or drop in for a chat. I'm really looking forward to this school year!
