Greetings from Superintendent Connie A. Newman

 

Iditarod Area School District is a geographically large area comparable with the state of Pennsylvania with a complex organization encompassing many different kinds of people and many different kinds of activities. But all of us who are part of Iditarod family are focused on one fundamental objective: the success of our students.

We are excited about the upcoming school year and the promise it brings for our students, our villages and our partners.  There are nine new teachers that have joined our team this year;  In Anvik -  Sandy Nininger, Holy Cross -  Phillip Conley, student teachers Jacob and Samantha Mosier, Grayling -  Norah King and Angela  Dunton, in Nikolai - Phillip Freeman, Takotna - Brian Mischica and McGrath -  Anna Walker, Bruce Hamler and Loree Boggess.  I know they will make positive contributions to our students lives. 

A key ingredient for student success is a strong partnership with parents, guardians, elders, and tribal officials.  Please help us keep our lines of communication open.  You are welcome to stop by for coffee and share your comments, questions and or concerns for our kids.
