Summer Activities to stay Mentally Healthy

This week, students will be discussing summer plans and goals in their last advisory class. Summertime in Alaska is beautiful, unique, and short! It’s easy for kids to fall into bad habits, which makes it ever so much harder to come back to school in August, so here are some suggestions for your students to stay mentally healthy this summer:


Find a routine

Make a summer bucket list and complete it

Learn how to make your own breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner

Get outside every day, even the rainy ones

Read a book or two or more!

Connect with a friend from STrEaM

Take a hike

Go camping

Go fishing

Enjoy a view

Make a summertime music playlist 

Clean out a closet, garage, or shed

Practice a skill like coloring, drawing, playing an instrument or sport, sewing, baking, etc. 

Go for a bike ride

Grow a plant or help with yard work

Give back to the community like picking up trash in parks or along sidewalks 

22-23 Registration and Enrollment

Second lottery is open now, and will close July 21, 2022, Parent notifications will go out July 28, 2022. We have seats in 6th grade, and are seeking female students to balance our 6th grade cohort. Please contact us if you have any questions about the lottery, waitlist, or enrollment. 


Online Registration for returning students opens Monday April 25th. 

Who is a returning student? 

  • Currently enrolled students who intend to return next year 

  • Students changing divisions - Elementary to Middle, Middle to High 

  • Students who have moved from one ASD zone to another ASD zone (you will need to provide proof of residency to your new school) 

  • Incoming Kindergarteners who attended an Anchorage School District preschool program

Pre-Enrollment for New to District students will open again on July 15th  2022. 

Who is a New-to District Student? 

  • Students who have never been enrolled in the Anchorage School district before 

  • Students returning after having left the Anchorage School District to attend in another district or state 

  • Incoming kindergartners that did not attend an Anchorage School District preschool program

Quyana!

Have an awesome summer, getting outdoors and enjoying the best Alaska has to offer.
