, the students not only have a more intense educational curriculum, but are active in extracurricular activities. The High School

We invite you to join in supporting our students, teachers and staff in their quest for a better Arlee community. Come to our many events, read the newsletter

Students in English II and Biology spent a day with Bill Swaney, Director of the Natural Resources Department at SKC, to learn about the effects of Kerr Dam on the Flathead River. They used probes to measure the water's temperature and collected bugs to investigate river ecology.
Native Ideals Seed Co. on Jocko Road donated native seeds and plants to our greenhouse. Mrs. Ligas’ 2nd grade and Mrs. Howlett’s 5th grade are nurturing the plants to prepare them for transplanting into our Ted Hesse Memorial Garden and across our campus. Our greenhouse was made possible through a National Science Foundation Grant that is sponsored by the Indigenous Math and Science Institute at the Salish and Kootenai College.
Ms. Ligas' 2nd Grade Class has been busy this spring by visiting the Jocko River Trout Hatchery to learn about trout, minding the greenhouse and having Ms. Baldwin's class read to them. The HS students brought their favorite books, the 2nd graders picked out their favorite books and they all shared reading.
The "Barger Bunch" aka Mrs. Barger's 1st Grade picked up garbage for about 45 min. around our primary playground and down both sides of the street to the JHS. They gathered 11 bags! What a fantastic bunch of troopers and caretakers of our environment.
