We’ve had a great start to the new year. This year, a few new ECE students and two new teachers joined our school. The new teachers and teachers from the previous year arrived on the Inaliq crab boat two days before school started. The new teachers are Miss Beck from Tennessee and Miss Lee from California. Along with the season, teachers, students, and the new year, herds and herds of walruses have been passing through from north, heading down to the south. This fall season, about a hundred walruses climbed on the rocks around the first cliff on north side of Diomede. Twelve walruses were caught while they were resting on the rocks. Not only the walruses were exciting, the weather was beautiful. The sun stood out for at least five days and many of the students got to go hiking over the weekend and people got to go back and forth from Diomede to Wales by boat. During the day the middle and high school are reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. The book is about an African-American family that are being treated unkindly. The students have been learning a lot about segregation and equal rights from the book. Other than that, wrestling and co-ed mixed volleyball has started and cheerleading will start soon.
