  • Attention Band Parents!
     
    The Ketchikan Community Concert Band is presenting their Spring Concert this weekend with two shows: 
     
    Saturday, April 26th at 7pm
     &
    Sunday, April 27th at 3pm
     
    Your children have heard one of the pieces from this concert in class and have been given small posters with the info on them.  I am hoping that most of the band students will be able to attend one of these performances.  The music is dramatic, fun, beautiful and, sometimes, all of those combined.  AND, students 18 and under can get in for free! 
    Look for more information on the band's facebook page.
     
    See you at the concert!
     
    Ms. Antonsen
    Band Teacher

CLEAN UP CHALLENGE TO POINT HIGGINS FAMILIES!
 
Twins Kya and Kyler spent the Teacher Inservice day picking up garbage along South Point Higgins Road!  Thank you for caring about our community and making it a better place.   
 
Quite a few kids and adults were seen out cleaning ditches this past week.  It's a great volunteer activity to do with your kids and it benefits the whole community!
 
Free yellow trash bags are available at the land fill.
 
 

 
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK ~ MAY 5TH - 9TH
 
Tuesday, May 6th is Teacher Appreciation Day
 
Point Higgins has fabulous teachers as well as fabulous parents! We do not have a formal PTA or parent organization but instead call on parents when there is an event we need help with.
 
We are looking for a group of parents who would like to coordinate something of their choosing to honor our teachers in some way the week of May 5th through May 9th.  Please call the office at 247-1500 if you can help.
 
Thank you!
