Announcements 3-19-12

Greetings From Alaska!

Our first virtual trip to The Alaska Sea Life Center on Thursday night was a huge success with over 40 people in attendance. Students and their families were able to virtually tour the Center, meet the marine mammals who live there and see them in action, and even make a clay sea lion with our tour guide. The tour was not only informative but funny and entertaining as well! Did you miss it? Not to worry - The virtual trip will be repeated next Thursday March 22nd at 6:00pm in the SACS Learning Commons (Library). This opportunity is open to SACS students and their families, and to community members as well. We have limited spaces so you must reserve yours in advance by calling 527-0565 ext.1100 or emailing We hope you can join us!

These items collected at school will be sent to Terracycle and turned into thing like backpacks and tote bags such as the ones pictured here:
