Last Friday, the Raider Swim Team had their last home meet of the season, and senior night. The meet started at 6:00 pm with team introductions and recognition of the seniors.

Jonathan Le and John Khongsuk were the only seniors on the team, both who have been competing for Unalaska since their freshman year. The senior swimmers had their names called and received flowers and a gift from their teammates.  Their coach read their future plans and their favorite memories from being on the swim team. Their families also went up to the front of the pool deck to take pictures.

Two slam poets arrived here in Unalaska last Monday to work with Unalaska high school English students.

Students from Ms. Rudio’s class made the march down to Mrs. Purevsuren’s classroom to form an amoeba of young writers, all of the same grade level. For the first activity of the day, the students got up from their round tables, mingled about the room and formed a circle where they formed pairs and had to introduce their partner using only facts. Then, the other partner reciprocated but this time, introducing with only lies. This led to some pretty wild first impressions.

      Last weekend, on Friday September 1st, the Unalaska Raider Swim Team had their first meet of the year at our very own Aquatics Center. Some exciting new technology has been added to the pool including an electronic screen with swimmers’ names and their times as they swim. All of the swimmers’ times start with the beep of the speaker. Then, when they finish, they touch a metal pad that records their time and displays it on the screen overhead. Backup timers are present to make sure that swimmers’ times aren’t lost if a malfunction occurs.
