Unalakleet’s End of Ski Season Picnic

Hot dogs, tree climbing, hill climbing, skiing, and just hanging out under the purest blue sky entertained community members of Unalakleet by SBS (Shyler’s Broken Ski) Loop.  One could not ask for a more fantastic day with a gathering of energetic Wolfpack skiers and family members.  Thanks for a great season and supportive community that lends a welcome hand!

    A BIG thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Persons for all the work they put in for our students as well as our very own Wolf Pack Skiers! Time after time I see Mr. Persons packing down the ski trail through wind, snow, hail or rain. :) Our kids really enjoy the ski program . Thank you both very much!

    It’s great to see the Unalakleet skiers in the mix. In all the years (14) I’ve worked in the Activities Office, our school has never done so well in skiing. Good job to Nancy and Chris Persons! The students look great and it’s so cool to see them enjoying themselves skiing! Keep up the awesome work, we love it!

    My mom told me that when the children gets more flexibility at their education they can give their 100%, so its been a great work to the authority to organize these kind of curriculum activities.
