The Unalaska City High School Band traveled to Valdez last weekend to attend the Aurora Regional Music Festival. The event started on Thursday with an opening concert featuring various bands and choirs from the region. The Unalaska Band played A Grand Entrance by Brent Bain. Honor and Mass Band rehearsals took up the rest of the day. The Unalaska Band again had the most Honor Band musicians, making up over half of the Honor Band.

The Channel 8 Auction will take place on ONE NIGHT this year and the theme is Old School Channel 8.  Don't miss the action on Saturday, April 22.  We're bringing back bidding on white boards instead of computers, and we'll show your favorite vintage clips from the Channel 8 Archives.  This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we can't wait to bring it to you live on Channel 8 Television.  A big shout out to our friends at the Norwegian Rat for incorporating our auction into their 1990s night festivities.

Dear Valued Community Members and Partners,

As you are aware, with the generous sponsorship of UniSea, Westward, and Alyeska, Iliuliuk Family & Health Services, Inc. (IFHS) has offered a community barbecue on Memorial Day for many years.  We find ourselves in a position to re-evaluate this event and have decided not to host it this year.  Our hope is that another organization will offer a meal and gathering opportunity on that day.

Last Tuesday after school, science fair participants from grades 7-12 gathered in the high school gymnasium for the UCSD Science Fair. For most students, it has been the culmination of months of work on their project. Parents, teachers, staff, and community members were invited to observe the hard work of these young scientists.
