A crew from Nome is here to help clear out our harbor. If you're in high school and would like some after-school work, they're looking for able bodies to help them remove some of the scrap metal and clean up the beach. This is a great opportunity for learning about waste removal and earning some spare change.
Author and researcher Will Gelbert will be in Diomede for several days. He wrote The Happiness Animal, as well as several children's books. He was generous enough to give each teacher a copy of his Happiness Animal, as well as some of his books for all our students. You can find out more about Will Gelbert and his works at his Goodreads page.
We hope you all had a magnificent summer. School will kick off the 2017-2018 school year on Monday, August 21. School doors open at 8:00 am and breakfast is served from 8:15 am to 8:45 am (parents are welcome to join their students for breakfast for $4.00). Morning assembly will be held in the gym at 8:50 am and classes officially begin at 9:00 am. Make sure your student gets a full night's sleep on Sunday night so their brains are rested and ready to learn! 9 to 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep is usually recommended for school age children.
