Thanks for donating to Glacier Valley

Sound off on the important issues at

The Glacier Valley Elementary School staff, parents and students would like to take this opportunity to thank Sealaska Heritage Institute for their generous gift of $10,000. Glacier Valley Elementary School is the recipient of the Kennedy Center Creative Ticket National School of Distinction Award. Glacier Valley is the only Alaska school ever to be honored with this award.

This donation by Sealaska Heritage Institute will help send our students to Washington, D.C., to perform on stage in the National Museum of the American Indian on March 14 and 15 at the Smithsonian. We are honored to represent the rich culture of this community by performing Tides and the Tempest, a play that intertwines Shakespeare's The Tempest with a traditional Tlingit story of Naatsilanei's creation of Keet Shagpoon.
