Fall/Winter 2022

Hello Grizzly Family!

Thank you for visiting our website, and welcome to Akiuk Memorial School in the 2022-2023 school year!

We were so excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year with a whole-school Berry Picking Field Trip and Homeroom Battle of the Akataq Making Contest. We want to build-up our school culture! It is important to us to connect with our students and families. We want to establish and maintain positive relationships with our community, as family and community support makes our schools even stronger. With the loss of our gym, it is extremely important for us to connect in as many ways as possible. In the Winter of 2023, we look forward to the removal of fire damaged housing and the reinforcement of our gym roof, allowing students access to the area for the first time in almost 2 winters.

It is important that our community, the “Grizzly Family” be seen as an extension of your family. We want to serve you in times of joy, happiness, and triumph, but also in times of challenge, grief, and struggle. Academic learning and growth are our bottom line, yet we also understand that educating students means being attentive to the “whole child” and caring about their social and emotional well-being.

Our teachers and staff love your child (ren), and we love to be a part of their learning and growth during these crucial years of development. We love having parents and elders in our school and contributing to our positive school culture.  Parents and Elders are a big part of who we are, and we want you to help us tell our story.  Please share with us your perspectives and let us know how things are going for you and your child (ren) at Akiuk Memorial School. You can email me anytime at [email protected].

Visit our Facebook page and “Follow” Akiuk Memorial School our school account if you have your own Facebook account. We update this page regularly with insights into what’s going on schoolwide and in our classrooms.  Our website is also a valuable source of information. Every message that we send out to families can be found on our website, along with our newsletters and other important information.
