Dear Students, Parents/Guardians, and Families,


Wow! Another summer gone and the start of the school year is already upon us.    

This year my focus with students and staff is going to center around the word LEARN. It is common practice to ask the children in our lives, “What did you learn in school today?” But do we ever share what we learned that day? Are we modeling for our youth a desire to learn new things or talking to them about how/why it’s important to keep learning and growing – no matter what your age?

I challenge everyone to talk about the act of learning with your family and friends, young and old. We are stronger as individuals and as a community when we are open to learning, whether it be taking an art class for the fun of it, picking the neighbor’s brain about how her tomatoes grew so big, taking a class to get that promotion, or changing a tire for the first time. Leonardo da Vinci wrote, “The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.” It’s that joy I wish for all of us.

We are excited to have a few new faces in the school this year. Stop by the district office to welcome back Interim Superintendent Rich Carlson; in the middle school, we have Jordan Baumgartner in math and science; and in the elementary, Ramie Carlson in kindergarten. We will also have Haley Stout student teaching under Sophia Armstrong in first grade. Please give them a groovy glacier bear welcome to our school!

Please feel free to stop by my office, email, or call if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas. Our school is dedicated to doing the best we can for our students, and I look forward to working with all of you to help the young people of the Chilkat Valley discover the opportunities that await them as they journey into their futures.

Thank you all for being a part of our Haines Glacier Bear Family!

Mrs. Martin

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
