It’s May and that means graduation season is upon us. After two years of uncertainty due to the pandemic and under the threat that in- person instruction could be disrupted at any given moment, let’s celebrate our students who made it despite it all to their milestones in education. The first graduation to be celebrated here in Nome are the students at Northwest Campus. BSSD graduations take place in the next two weeks and NBHS will release its students to the world on May 25.
The end of the school year also means that we’re saying good bye to teachers who move on.
Make sure that you give graduating students a pat on the shoulder, some encouraging words and that you thank those teachers who dedicated their life’s work to teaching our kids. —D.H.—
