Scholarships may be available, please contact the front office. Please note RALLY students may attend extra-curricular activities free of charge.

NATIVE YOUTH OLYMPICS: (Not offered every year)
Students learn how to compete in various Native Olympics games/events and participate in a district wide competition. Jan-Feb. No cost.
Teachers and staff lead multi-age groups in various non-traditional subjects. Groups meet for an hour once a week from April- May, with a cluster celebration towards the end of May. Examples of subjects in the past include veterinary care, food chemistry, weaving, sign language, art and much more.
Every 5th grade student chooses an important historical figure to research and write about. Dressed in costume, the character is brought to life in front of a small audience in the halls of the school in late winter/early spring. This engaging event has brought history to life for our children.
Alaskan Native Doll Project
Fourth graders research Native Alaskan people groups and create a replica doll and prop to present and display at school. Classes celebrate with a family potluck and sharing of their projects.
Artist in The School
Funded by the Alaska State Council for the Arts and Auke Bay PTA, the Artist in the The School program provides a 3-week residency for an artist at Auke Bay. In any given year, half of the school works intensively with the artist on a project, and other classes visit the artist during "studio" time to watch him or her work. A systematic rotation ensures that all children will have several opportunities, over the course of their 6 years at Auke Bay, to actively participate.
