The Unalaska Raider Basketball teams played in their first games of the season last week. The teams traveled to Anchorage where they competed in the Rally the Regions tournament, which is a gathering of rural basketball teams from around the state. Rally the Regions is a four game tournament with the first three games being a “Round Robin” style and the last game being for the championship or other places.

Last Saturday, Unalaska’s chapter of Alaska Youth for Environmental Action and the UCSD Student Government organized a trash clean-up around the high school and Front Beach. There was a pretty good turn out and about fifteen students representing all different grades in high school showed up to help. The weather was good, and everyone agreed it was a nice day to clean up outside.

Last Friday and Saturday, UCSD’s Strategic Planning Committee met to revise the school district’s vision and goals for the next five years. Stakeholders from all around the community were present, offering a wide variety of perspectives. There were school board members, teachers, administrators, faculty, students, parents, and community members collaborating on this strategic plan. Facilitating it all was a representative from the Alaska Association of School Boards (AASB).

Last weekend, the Unalaska Student Government traveled to Wasilla for the Alaska Association of Student Government (AASG) Fall Conference. This event is the largest gathering of student governments in the state, with over 530 delegates in attendance. A variety of student leaders came from Noorvik, Sand Point, East Anchorage, Juneau-Douglas and many more towns and cities. For the conference, the Menard Sports Center, which is an ice rink, was converted into a convention hall. Now we can say yes when people from the lower 48 ask if we have our events in igloos.
