Ways to Connect

Last Saturday at 7pm, the Unalaska Public Library invited the community to come out and play the one-night-only, custom designed 9-hole mini-golf course.

Smiling friends and family filed into the large gym waiting with anticipation for the senior class to boldly walk the aisle to the UCSD band playing, “Pomp and Circumstance.” Spirits were high at the 2016 UCSD Graduation Ceremony which was held Saturday, May 21st at 7pm.

The class of 2016 took seats in the corner opposite the band under a massive arch made of blue and gold balloons.

The ceremony started off with a few kind words from UCSD Superintendent John Conwell.

UCSD's Spin on Art

May 20, 2016

If you've been to the high school since last Tuesday, you might have noticed that the UCSD Kaleidoscope Art Show has adorned the hallways providing all passersby a feast for the eyes. Art teacher Finn Palmer curated the show which included 90 pieces of artwork from students in fifth through twelve grade.   

Tuesday evening, members from the Aleutian Arts Council stopped by to judge the works and promptly headed to the auditorium to announce the winners, as seen below:

Friday was a day of speeches, fanfare and cockpit tours at the Dutch Harbor Airport. Peninsula Aiways – or PenAir – flew in its new Saab 2000 plane for a tarmac meet-and-greet with the community. At last a bigger, faster plane will be running daily flights to the island halfway through the Aleutian chain.
