A very happy retirement to Lori, Vern, and Jill! We're going to miss you. Enjoy yourselves!
Thank you to John and Conri for serenading us today with your music. Our students and staff are talented!
Huge congratulations to the Northern Lights Community School graduating class of 2023! It was a great ceremony last night. Thanks to all who came and thanks to all who put up with the heat and humidity! Lots of scholarships were handed out - over $40,000 in total!
Graduation is tomorrow (Thursday) evening in the gym. We will serve some burgers and hotdogs at 5:00 and start the ceremony at 6:30 pm. Please join us. (The practice for the seniors will be held at 1:00 pm.)
Nice afternoon at the Legion Beach today. Kids were swimming, fishing, and having a lot of fun. And almost no bugs!
Tomorrow is Lake Day! We'll be at the lake all day. Please bring water bottles, sunscreen, and bug spray!
Today was the day we had to say goodby to our baby trout. As you can see in the pics, they've been released to the wild, but the predators moved in fast looking for a snack. Good thing we had some pro fishermen with us to protect our little friends.
Stuffed waffles will be available for sale again this Friday - 5/26. They are pre-order only. Contact us today to place your order!
There are far too many field day winners to announce in this limited format so I will just post the 1st place winners in each category. One-Mile Run - Addison M & Kyler E; Shot Put - Beretta S & DeShawn N; Discus - Beretta S & Kyler E; Soccer Punt - Andy S & Bryce S; Football Throw - Andy S & Landon K; Tug-O-War - Miss B's Advisory; ....and the advisory with the most overall points - Donna's!
Excited Middle schoolers ready for 4 days of camp! Trumpeter swans next to us and even a cow came to camp!
Donna took her advisory to Ely today so the Track & Field results will have to wait until Monday. Instead, I give you this fine group of students enjoying the Ely wilderness.
Today was Track & Field Day. Students started with a 1 mile run/walk, then punt/pass/kick, and we ended with some tug-o-war. The winners will be posted tomorrow with some more pics.
While students were cleaning up alongside the highway other students were out cleaning up the area around Lucky Seven truck stop. And then unbeknownst to them rewarded with some pizza and pop! Thank you Lucky Seven!
