It’s been a busy 10 days starting off on Wednesday with high school graduation. Two girls met all the requirements for getting a high school diploma which include so much more than back in the day when you just needed the necessary number of credits. Congratulations to these two who got the credits, passed all the state tests and turned the basketball court into a wonderfully decorated graduation gathering place!
On Thursday students chose books to add to their home collections and read over the summer.
Thursday evening there was a community potluck followed by an awards ceremony and Kindergarten graduation.
Friday morning was a combination of end-of-the-year wrap-up learning and clean up. Everyone wanted a turn to try out the vacuum (more linoleum than carpet in homes here, so a broom and mop are the regulars, not a vacuum).
After school there was an announcement on the VHF saying there was a grizzly bear right down on the sandbar in front of the village. Someone caught it and it made delicious soup.
It was quite a week. It was quite a year!
