Dear GILA families,

Again I would like to thank everyone for engaging with our teachers and dorm staff in a positive way. This year had its ups and downs, however, we are almost at the finish line.

Today is our Community Barbecue, which will be held beginning at 4:30PM at the Community Hall. Everyone is welcome and there will be some awesome food.

At 7:00PM tonight is the Baccalaureate, which will be at the Catholic Church. For those parents and families who have traveled to Galena, transportation will be available from the Community Hall.

Tomorrow afternoon, there will be a community picnic at SHS from 12-2PM. Again, transportation is available.

The graduation ceremony will commence tomorrow night, May 18th at the Sidney C. Huntington School (SHS). The ceremony will begin at 7PM. After the festivities are over, students will return to the dormitory and pack his/her bags. The majority of GILA students will fly out of Galena on May 19th and May 20th.

For those who are unable to join us in Galena, here is the link for family and friends to view the live stream event: https://www.galenaalaska.org/live

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
 
Lilly Ann DeWilde
