Our school is located in North West Alaska, an hour and a half plane ride from the nearest major city. We are a Title I school with students from all walks of life learning together.
We all learn from each other with our different family traditions.
We live a subsistence life here. Each season keeps us busy with supplying for our families. We fish in all seasons, pick different berries, hunt different wild game, pick greens, go crabbing, and many other activities.
Our reading center has bookshelves and a reading carpet. We would love to have areas to sit and read a book. We live in a very cold area, so there are times that the floor is cold. The sofas would allow for the students to be up off the floor and comfortable. The sofa with the book shelf underneath will allow for the students to store magazines or newspapers to read. Both sitting areas will allow a space for friends to read together. Also, the material that is used on the sofas will allow for us to easily keep them clean.
