Gallery Walk

When we first arrived, we noticed some things right off that made this “not just any school anywhere”; a good thing we thought.

One wall of the gym has a mural of village scenes.

There’s a display case of local art in the hall that includes the name of each artist.

Baskets, mittens, beading, fur mitts

Some old photographs, a fish net, and a fish trap hang on the walls.

There will be some new additions, too. The high school class is working on a display of elders. We think that will add a nice touch to what’s already here.

Down in the elementary wing, the halls are lined with this year’s worth of artwork. Here’s a sampling of what you’d see if you were here:

Tea anyone?

In a few weeks the halls will be quiet and the walls will be bare, but students will have quite a collection to take home and add to a gallery of their own.

  1. I enjoy how one of the books in the sled is called “Big-Enough Anna” — did you pick that one out for me? I really like the massive sled with books and dogs that the kids made, you’re so crafty! I’ve been telling Karina about it and Holly Faulstich said racing the Iditarod with reading in kindergarten was one of her favorite memories from school. Looks like you’re leaving quite the lasting impression. Hope you’re both doing well. Much love.
