  • Old Harbor Swim Trip by Clair Taylor

    This year, 4th-7th grade students from Old Harbor School fundraised and received donations to go on a class swim trip to Kodiak. Everyone had multiple opportunities to learn and have fun, including: horseback riding, a farm tour, visiting the Baronof museum, Fish and Wildlife Center, and getting a tour of the Kodiak College. This trip is one that students will remember for the rest of their lives.
