STAMP Assessment During Spanish Class Next Week

Students in Spanish classes will be taking the STAMP assessment beginning next week.  This is a proficiency based assessment used to show student growth, give students helpful information about their ability to use Spanish, and potentially qualify them for a Stamp of Biliteracy on their diploma.  All testing will take place during Spanish classes and should not interrupt their other studies.  If you have any questions, please contact Ashley or Rosa.

Alaska Seeds of Change Summer Garden Program





Are you looking for other day camp options for your child(ren) this summer? The Anchorage-based nonprofit Alaska Seeds of Change is looking to hold an interactive summer gardening program to teach youth about how to start, grow, and maintain fresh and local Alaskan produce. In order to best serve you and your child(ren)’s needs, we have created a quick survey to determine how we should administer our program. If you think your child(ren) would be interested in learning more about gardening and the local food system, we invite you to take this quick 5 minute survey. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions about the survey, or have problems with the link, please contact Kelly Ballantyne or Rebecca Knapp at We ask that you submit all of your responses by Friday February 28th.
