Yesterday afternoon we held a graduation ceremony at the Tuluksak school. Kindergarden, eighth grade, and, of course, seniors participated. There were five senior graduates this year (elementary classes average 12 students in a grade), four of whom earned a regular high school diploma, while three earned a certificate of completion. It was a nice ceremony, even though the district representatives couldn’t get here on account of possible flooding. As it happens, the town has not *actually* flooded – well, just a little, where there’s a low bank. So f the river stays down and Mr Redoubt doesn’t explode again (as it may), we should be getting out of here next Thursday.
