... to Nugget Mall
The staff and students of Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Nugget Mall Merchants Association for the support shown to all Juneau schools with your "Local Favorite School" survey this fall.
We are very honored to be chosen as the "local favorite" and truly appreciate the $500 check you presented to us. We will use the funds to help in our efforts to upgrade the technology available to our students. Thank you very much for your support of education.

... for the support
The food sales at the Auke Bay Halloween Carnival are the single biggest fundraiser for the extended learning and math club programs in the school.
Through this event, we raise money to purchase relevant learning materials for math and reading and to feed between 400 and 500 hungry bellies.
We couldn't raise this money without the support of several local businesses and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them. Super Bear Supermarket donated generously, providing hot dogs, buns and condiments for the entire school carnival. We would also like to thank both Costco Wholesale and Safeway Food and Drug for their gift certificates and Odom Co. (coke products) and the Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. for their contribution of bottled water, juice and soda.
Parents of students also generously donated their time and energy to helping make the carnival a success. With their help and the generous support of Super Bear, Safeway, Costco, Odom Co. and Pepsi Cola, the extended learning program will have the proper educational materials for our young people all year, not to mention a wonderful and safe Halloween activity.
