Winter Carnival

ACMS is proud to announce that we celebrated a Winter Carnival during the week of April 7-12.

There was a series of events throughout the week, starting with T-Shirt Day on Monday, and ending with Inuit Games and movies with popcorn on Friday afternoon, April 12. The scheduled boil-up was moved to Friday, April 18 due to the weather, and it was also a great success!

Schedule of Events

Monday: T-Shirt Day - Pictures were taken in the gym starting at 9:00 and regular classes resumed for the rest of the day.

Tuesday: PJ Day. This was a great success! Everyone was encouraged to crawl out of bed and come on in with their pjs and bed head!

Wednesday: Backwards Day. Wear your pants backwards, your shirts backwards, and even your hats backwards. But don't walk backwards...

Thursday: Hawaiian Day. Even though sunshine was not in our future today, many people still sported those cool summer shades and hawaiian shorts and a lai. A special hawaiian treat of watermelon, oranges and bananas were served to each class, and our afternoon of karaoke was a complete success!

Friday: Cultural Day. Come dressed in culturally relevant clothing and any other part of culture that is fitting. Period 2 we are meeting in the gym to have primary and elementary students play a game of dodgeball against their teachers. Period 3 we will resume in the gym to watch junior high and high school students play volleyball against their teachers. In the afternoon we will have some fun Inuit games for all junior high and high school students, while primary and elementary students will participate in individual class activities, some including movies and popcorn.

School Boil-up: Friday, April 18. We met at the school and went as a group across the ice to a place behind the airstrip. Students, teachers and parents enjoyed sliding, ice fishing, ski-dooing, several campfires with hotdogs and marshmallows, and fresh fruit.
