"Thank you," to all!

Just wanted to say "Thank you," to everyone who came out to last night's concert. It was high quality music in a high quality place. I know for sure that the students and staff appreciate everyone being here and a special "Thank You!" to Mr. Simmondsen for the exceptional leadership.

We are winding down this semester. Please help the kids stay focused (I will try to keep the teachers focused) as we make our best effort. There will not be a newsletter next week so, "Merry Christmas to All," and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

From our library

ALL student library books are due back to the library by this Friday, 12/15. If the book is lost, you will need to pay for it. Overdue notices will be coming out this week. If you need more information, please contact Miss Thompson at 260-1345, ext. 1375 or rthompson@kpbsd.k12.ak.us. Students who have their books turned in or paid for will receive prizes starting on Monday 12/18. Most students will be allowed to check out books to have over Christmas Break. However, Please do not travel with library books. It is too easy to lose them.
