New School in Progress

The new school foundation was completed in late March. Last month the school’s wall panels were also put together. As you can see in the background of the new school, the village has five wind towers on the tundra. The close-up picture only shows three of the wind towers standing. The wind towers will provide electricity and help reduce the cost of living for local residence.

It will be interesting to see how much work has been completed by the time I return in August.

Hi Kendra;

It's so wonderful to be able to follow the progress of the new school in "Kong." You're doing us all a great favor by keeping us informed.

I'm very interested in the windmill generators. I hope they're working as advertised. What a great idea for rural Alaska.

Hi Skip,
It's great to hear from you. I am looking forward to a summer break downstates. It's been a busy year and adjusting to a new lifestyle change in my life.

Now that I am done with my all my courses I should have time to write from time to time.
I think the windmill generators will be running sometime this summer. It's exciting to see some changes in Kongiganak this past year.
