Dear Parents and Guardians,
Well, the end of the school year is upon us. The last day for all students will be Thursday, May 18. Students will be released at 2:30. I would like to thank the parents, families, staff, and community for making this year such a wonderful time for the students. In honor of Teacher Appreciation Day last week, I would also like to extend my most sincere thanks to all of our teaching staff. We have a wonderful group of individuals at Harold Kaveolook School and your hard work and dedication should be commended. I am so glad that, with the exception of Jill Exe, all of them will be returning next year. Jill’s replacement is Marianne Manning. She comes to us from the Juneau area and has many years of experience. I feel she will be a wonderful addition to the teaching staff.
Our 2017 Graduation Ceremony was held on May 5. It was an honor to watch all of our students promote or graduate. I would like to congratulate our kindergarten promoters- Jyllina, Simon, Morry, and Josiah, and our eighth-grade promoters- Thea and Charles. It will be wonderful to watch you grow and spread your wings as you continue your schooling at HKS. I would also like to extend a special congratulations to our high school graduates- Jonas and Georgianna. We are so proud of you and wish you blessings and luck in your future endeavors.
The HKS 2016-17 Awards Ceremony will be held Monday, May 15 at 2:30 in the new gym. There will also be a cake walk on Tuesday, May 16 at 7:00 in the HKS cafeteria. This is to raise medical funds for 11th grader Ray Fischer-Akootchook. Field Day will be Wednesday, all day. Everyone is invited to come cheer on the students as they battle it out. The awards will be presented on Thursday morning.
Community Craft Night will be held on Wednesday, May 17 and Saturday, May 20 from 6-9 in the home economics room. We will reopen in the fall when school is back in session. Similarly, the final Girl Scouts of the year will be on Monday, May 15. They too will regroup when school resumes in August. I understand several new girls have joined the Girl Scouts. I would like to say “Welcome” to Adrianna, Micailah, Monica, Skyla, Thea, and Flossie. I hope you have a wonderful time over the next year.
Finally, I am pleased to announce that a number of students will be attending summer camps over the next couple of months. Jonas will be attending the Sitka Fine Arts Camp in July. Lenora will be attending the Allied Health Camp in Barrow this June. Charles has been accepted to the North for Science! Expedition beginning in Fairbanks and traveling along the Dalton Highway. Jaden Aishanna will be attending the Career Academy at ANSEP. Natasha Gordon, Danny Gordon, and Marcus Gallagher will be going to the Middle School ANSEP Summer Academy at UAA. Skylar Soplu is on the waiting list for this opportunity. We also have several students that have applied for summer camps, but have not heard back yet. Caitlin Gallagher has applied for the Future Teachers of the Arctic in Barrow and Michael Klein has applied for the Iñupiaq Land Values & Resources Camp in Pt. Hope. I sure hope that you hear back soon from Ilisagvik and that they are able to find a spot for you. Please help support and congratulate these students the next time you see them.
I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable summer. I will be spending the summer in Utah visiting with family and friends, and helping a neighbor build a house. If you need to reach me over the summer, please feel free to contact me through email- email@example.com. Additionally, my cell phone number is 435-491-0417. If you have questions regarding school usage over the summer, please contact Leroy at 640-6626. I look forward to seeing you in a few short months.
Todd Washburn, Principal
