Koyuk-Malemute School Information

Koyuk Malemute School is attended by 100+ students. The grades range from kindergarden to 12 grade. Koyuk School has a new program. It is called the Malemute C.O.R.R.E (Culture of Respect and Responsibility for Everyone) court. This program was founded by Highland Tech. We think that it will help us become more closer to our peers. What it does is if you get in trouble and disrespect the culture of respect and responsibility code you will be sent to it. Secondary students run it. They will help you solve your problem and give you a consequence. We are hoping this program will succeed throughout the year. ==

There are several types of sports. The year starts out with Cross-Country Running, Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Wrestling. Next we have boys and girls varsity Basketball. In the winter we have skiing. They year ends with Native Youth Olympics. We had some people from our school attend state championships ( wrestling and skiing.)

Erika's blog is somewhere you can see some Social Studies standards. You can also see the assignments. When I used it I had an assignment to write a letter to the Mr. Obama. I used this link to go to where we had to decide on the Stimulus Bill signed or not signed. The link took me to a place to see what others thought about the Stimulus Bill. I used that information to write my letter to Mr. President.- Luann

What is it like living in Koyuk

ANA ESTHER Hey Sunshines! The Earth says...hello! My name is Ana E. Otton and I am 15 years old. I'm A sophomore at the Koyuk Malemute School. I am happy to say my heart is in the village and it will always be there. This village is Koyuk, Alaska. I dont really have the idea, besides doing subsistence and camping, during the summers because im usually out of town. During the winter, the two things that come to mind are Corinnes Video Store and GYM nights. There is also riding. I love the traditional Christmas every winter. The New Year Day is awesome, we ride in a train. This is a train of snowmobiles. This year my rig will be ready. Last year I was in Hawaii so  I missed out. The year before that,I didn't have my F6. I'm stoked! Hey There Everyone! Koyuk is a very wonderful place to live. Here in the summer you can go out hiking, boating swimming, camping,berry picking,and fishing. In the fall time you could go ptarmagin, or moose hunting. In the winter many kids go sliding. Christmas break is the best. Some People hold the games and activities at the community or gym. The activities are: Relay racing, Fishing Derby, turkey shoot out, sliding contest, scavenger hunt, and many other things.-Corey Amy Many kids like to do these types of activities during the hot summer. We also can play base ball and many others. Living here in Koyuk is that we can go swimming, fishing, berry picking, camping, and go out for a ride. There is almost anything to do here in Koyuk. -Cecelia: Living here in Koyuk is pretty good. We have Corinnes Videos, so its not super boring. During summer break its really fun and people who come here say its really beautiful... Except the bugs..... Anyways, Koyuk is a fun place to be.

Koyuk Alaska it is a beautiful place to be in. In the winter there are some storms that are bad but not really. The snow start to blow and starts hurting if you're playing outside. But in the spring you can do more then in the winter. Like going hunting for ducks and sea mammals. My favorite thing in the spring is water skipping. I don't know why but, a lot of people start to water skip. So after spring there is summer right. So in the summer is like the most awesomest. You can ride, play eskimo baseball, go gym for a while, and play ball on the court. On the Fourth of July they do relay races and after the relay races we go down to our beach and start the picnic. Then we do a lot more after the picnic, like a lot of games. So when summer is almost done we pick the delicious salmon-, black-, blue-, and cran- berries up the river. it be hot but pick faster and you will be done faster, plus you go home quicker. FALL is the greatest season for me. I can go ride in the slouch and mud for a long time. I wont care if I get wet or dirty. Thats what Maxine thinks. I live in Koyuk Alaska for 14 years and it is a blast.      

Hi I am Angel from Koyuk. I have lived here my whole twelve years. Koyuk is a beautiful place to be. Here in Koyuk makes me feel like its a city but it is not it's a village. I wish people could come visit us it is very nice place.

Hi my name is Trevor and I’m 18 years old , I’ve lived in Koyuk my whole life and I’m a junior at the Koyuk malimiut school. The only way to get here is by plane or boat or whatever you choose. If you were in Anchorage you would have to travel by plane to Nome and another flight to Koyuk.
