Glacier Valley Elementary School's Art is Elementary program provides weekly arts-integrated instruction to all of our Glacier Valley students. With the support of the Glacier Valley Parent Group and the financial assistance from community members, we were able to complete a very successful art-filled first year.

Our students, staff and parents would like to thank the following local organizations and businesses that sponsored an elementary class: Association of Alaska School Boards, Elgee, Rehfeld Mertz, Full Circle Music, Glacier Valley Student Council, Juneau Brass & Winds, Ron Maas Family, neighbors of Duran Court and Duran Street, neighbors of El Camino Street, Northland Audiology & Hearing Services, True North Federal Credit Union, USKH Architects, Wells Fargo Bank Alaska and Wellspring.

We would also like to thank these businesses for co-sponsoring a class: Alaska Electric Light & Power, Alaska Litho, Alaska Peace Officers Association, Beta Sigma Phi XI Delta, Filipino Community Inc., Java Jazz, Jensen Yorba Lott Inc., MRV Architects, Prindle's Carpet Upholstery Cleaning Services, Simpson Tillinghast Sorenson & Longenbaugh and Lynn Williams.

A program like this couldn't happen without the help of people like you.

Thanks for participating in Juneau Speaks on Iraq

Thank you, citizens, for being part of "the best of democracy."

On May 30, at the close of the public forum Juneau Speaks on Iraq, Sen. Lisa Murkowski called the event "kind of the best of democracy." Juneau People for Peace and Justice would like to thank all those who attended the forum, those who submitted comments to Sen. Murkowski and those who spoke with the passionate interest in our nation's future.

We also want to thank the fine citizens, for their contributions to this effort to bring one of our elected voices in Congress home to hear our voices. We especially wish to thank Supreme Court Justice Walter "Bud" Carpeneti, Mayor Bruce Botelho, University of Alaska Southeast Professor David Noon and our co-sponsors - the League of Women Voters, University of Alaska Southeast and the Juneau World Affairs Council. We also wish to thank Connie McKenzie, of Sen. Murkowski's Juneau office; the staff at KTOO, who recorded and broadcasted the forum; and the staff at KINY, who helped publicize the event.
