Nurse's Blog

Being Thankful

I saw a student recently at Safeway. He had moved away a few years ago but told me he always wanted to move back to Seward. He would come to see me at the nurse’s office and we’d talk usually for a very long time. He had problems at home and at school. The young man standing before me now has a job and feels like he is doing well. It is always affirming to know a student that has faced challenges at home and school can be resilient in his future. A blossoming thought occurred while I was talking to this young man and I knew then that it is the connection with students that I have missed most this school year. We all have definitely lost many things this year. Ultimately, it has brought to the forefront what is truly important in my work and that is the connections I have made with students and staff.


Planetary Exploration STEM Academy

During the week of December 7, grades 3-5 will be participating in a weeklong virtual program about Planetary Exploration. This program reinforces STEM concepts and is presented by the Challenger Learning Center of Alaska.

Denali Park Dinosaurs

On December 9, students in Grades K-2 will be participating in Denali Distance Learning's presentation of Denali Park Dinosaurs. During this Distance Learning program, students travel back in time with a ranger to learn about how the predator-prey interactions of Denali’s dinosaurs mirror those of wild animals in Denali today.

Christmas Play

A virtual Christmas Play is in the works. Please stay tuned for more information.

Water Bottles

Please make sure your child brings a filled water bottle to school each day and brings it home at the end of the day. We are happy to refill it during the day if needed. We appreciate it!
