Just another day in paradise.

Good Morning Tustumena Families,

We are having another especially good day today, so I just wanted to stop and tell you, "Thank you," for all you do as supportive families that make up the Tustumena culture. When ever there is an administrator meeting, I rub in how great Tustumena is. I am sure the other principals are tired of hearing it, but I wouldn't say it if it were not true.

We are celebrating the success of the first semester today by starting our Lynx Tracks field trips to the skating rink. We also have a recognition assembly today for kids who represented Tustumena in the Elk's hoop shoot as well as the National Geography Bee, and Spelling Bee.

Our school yard habitat is taking shape. There will be centers where students learn about the historic and cultural events as well as an area that is fenced-out for mammals and other grazers so students can see what the forest would look like if we didn't have browsers like moose and rabbits. Plus, if we ever get snow, we have the cross country ski trail ready to use again this year.

Best wishes to all,

Doug Hayman

Principal
