The Diomede School celebrated the graduation of our two seniors on Thursday night, May 16. The school and community are very proud of Samantha Iyapana and Leticia Milligrock. It’s time to rock ‘n’ roll.

We had three visiting artists last week.
Seth Kantner, writer and photographer from the Kotzebue/Kobuk area, worked with classes to produce some visual displays of words and images.
Also, the photography team of Matt and Agnes Hage dropped by to take portraits of students. They also took a series of community pictures to be framed and displayed in the school.

Charlie and Gene Soolook traveled to White Mountain for the regional ski meet. They both competed well. Charlie took first place among junior high students in the marksmanship competition. He came close to outscoring the high school winners. In the picture below, Charlie is on the far left wearing his gold medal for marksmanship.

We got our first big snows of the winter. And the new topography of the school after construction changed all the drift patterns. Some huge piles of snow built up quickly.
On February 14 we shared valentines at school. And then the next day, a Friday, we had a Valentine Dance in the gym.

Diomede School started the spring one day later than we planned. Teachers were supposed to return to the island on Sunday, January 6, but the weather in the Bering Strait region was too wintery. Two teachers were able to get back on Monday the 7th, and we started school on Tuesday the 8th.
