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.

Each year the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge produces a migratory bird calendar featuring artwork and literature created by students from within the refuge. This year, students from Unalaska will be prominently featured, with seven total pieces of artwork and literature. There will also be twelve pieces of artwork being featured in the Capitol building this April for the refuge’s display.

Rylee Lekanoff, 5th Grade,Sophia Usi, 5th Grade, and Abigail Go, 8th Grade, will be featured for their literature.

Last weekend, nineteen students from Unalaska City High School traveled to Anchorage to compete in the Russian, Spanish, and German Language competitions. Mrs. Galena Roraback, the school’s foreign language teacher, accompanied the students along with two other advisors. Mrs. Roraback has worked hard all year to teach and prepare the students, and is glad that students are able to finally show their knowledge of their respective languages.
