Welcome Back to School Year 2016-2017
Dear Hoonah City Families, Alumni, Students and Citizens,
Welcome to our culturally rich and student focused school district. We look forward to meeting you during this 2016-2017 school year. Principal Ralph Watkins and I believe this will be an exciting year for students at Hoonah City Schools.
Our district is focused on the success of our students and assuring that they know who they are,
Haa Kusteeyi A’ya. The students and their future children are our future.
August will be very busy with the opening of the Hoonah Clan House in Glacier Bay National Park.
We will be taking students Grades 2-12 and all staff for the ceremony on August 25th. Watch our website, reader board, and for letters coming home explaining details about this daylong event at Bartlett Cove. Principal Watkins is also exploring ways to get families instant messages. Hoonah City Schools is moving into the 21st century.
Relationship with our students is an important part of our learning environment. We hope that each one of you will stop by, meet Principal Watkins, teachers, students and participate in our learning community.
We serve breakfast every day at 8AM for free to anyone who comes in and wants to start the day with us. Bring your coffee or tea and come an enjoy our students.
If you have questions or concerns, please stop by and share your thoughts. Hope to see you this year.
