First Semester at Nanwalek School a Great Success!!!!

We are well into second semester now, and back from our January winter break! Students have taken their winter benchmarks, and we are already seeing academic progress as a result of teachers and students working hard, and because of our ConnectED iPad implementation! In December, we offered an update to the KPBSD School Board, and our presentation is now posted on YouTube. We recently had a ConnectED Photo Shoot, with auditory interviews, and we will let you know when that product is available. Nanwalek students and parents have been great partners in our ConnectED project this year! We look forward to all the learning that our spring semester will bring to our school!

A Successful First Quarter for Nanwalek School!!!!

We have had an engaging, active quarter of learning for all members of our learning community with the implementation of 1:1 iPads! A big thank you to parents! Our attendance has significantly increased over last school year!

Some memorable events this quarter included President Obama giving Nanwalek School a shout-out during his Kotzebue speech! Our student rollout celebration in August was incredible! This quarter, we also started a middle school basketball program, thanks to Coach Doering and Auggie! Teachers received five days of professional development to learn to use our new technology for increased learning in their classrooms! Mrs. Kleine was invited to speak at the National Indian Education Association conference, and she enjoyed sharing the Nanwalek experience with other educators! And Chugach Corporation provided a job fair with many vendors right here in our very own school.

Our students are the sunshine of our lives! They are the apples of our eyes! We love partnering with our students and their families!!!
