Two Rivers Times

Week of 4/2/23. Cover Art by: Brenton

Artist in Residence- Fairbanks Arts Association

Next week will have an artist in residence working with all our students. This residency is in partnership with a grant from the Fairbanks Arts Association.

About the Artist- Marianne Stolz

Marianne is a 3-dimensional artist/woodcarver and instructor at the Fairbanks Folk School. She likes to make 3D art accessible for all ages, so she uses cardboard, an incredibly versatile and affordable material. She has been collaborating with our teachers to develop projects to enhance the content area taught in each classroom. She will also work with our librarian and students in our drama team to create props for our upcoming play. We are super excited to have her at our school; and thankful to the Fairbanks Arts Association for their generous support.

Alaska Department of Fish and Game Salmon in the Classroom Project

Mr. Pete's class has been developing Salmon in the classroom from egg to fry. This past week students from Mr. Pete and Ms. Meehan's classes released the fish into the Tanana River and went ice fishing. Thanks to Erik Anderson, who visited the classroom several times to share his knowledge with the students and taught them to ice fish.

Family Ski Night this Friday!

The ski trails are incredible; after grooming and fresh snow, we would love to have one last family ski night this Friday. I hope you all will come and enjoy the trails for some fantastic spring skiing. Let's make it a night to remember.
