Tomorrow is the last day of school! I’m so excited! I cannot wait till freedom!

I still have no plans. Lets see what summer brings. Have a good day! :D

Sorry I would right more then this but I’m betting my summer will be boring, but I did sign up for Summer Youth Program. As in working somewhere. Im so excited. I also applied for other things, but eh.

Lunch time, gotta go!

Prom

We spent a few days decorating for prom, but our main days for decorating were on Thursday and Friday. For our decorations we had white lights hanging from the ceiling and tied silver stars on to the white lights. We put blue paper around the gym and on we put stars on some of the blue paper. We put black streamers and metallic blue on the bleachers. Eric Campbell helped fill up the balloons with helium, Stacey Mueller bought/ordered silver, white, and black with silver stars, and the metallic blue had Class Of 2014. The Middle/high School put tables in the gym and put black tablecloths and put silver star table wreaths with LED lights, and put blue star confetti on the table. On Friday we had the prom after Alicia Crisci, Reuben Oxereok, Janelle Cotheren, and Jessie Ongtowasruk’s graduation.

After the graduates slideshow everyone went back in to the gym and put the bleachers up and turned off the lights and turned the strobe lights and the disco ball. Their were dancing games like, dance offs and dance freeze games, and after a while Shawna Keyes and Ms. Mueller announced who was prince and princess. The prince was Fred and the princess was Isabelle Olanna. Alicia Crisci announced who were king and queen. The prince was Cyrus Saveitilk ad the queen was Jessie Ongtowasruk.

I had a really good time but after prom I was super tired.

High School Graduation Last Week

Today’s Tuesday May 13th, and there was a high school graduation last week and there was lots of things going on, and we had to help decorate and the teachers were also helping. There was a lot of things going on that week and we were focusing on graduation and prom. We were baking 3 days early because we didn’t have frosting so we had to make our own and it took some time to decorate, bake, and set-up the gymnasium.
This is Ms. Mueller’s last year that’s why the graduation and prom was so important and had to be fancy or we would have to do it again. Last week during prom was fun, But when they went around asking for the prince and all that and it was so fun that day. The classroom was open to us but Ms. Mueller wanted us out of there.
When the Graduates were finished they went into Ms. Mueller’s classroom and get rid of things they don’t need and since they aren’t coming back to school they had to clean everything up. I was mostly being in her room and mainly looking at the things I can do. Now that the graduates are gone this room is very dead quiet.

Me and My Family

Okay I just feel saying a little something about my family. My mom Peggy Ann Sereadlook Tokeinna Olanna was married to my dad Richard Evans Tokeinna. My mom had three girls who are Stacey Tokeinna, Louise Inez Tokeinna, and their youngest girl Rebecca (Becca) Tokeinna. My dad died in 1998 the year I was born, so I don’t really know much about him. But all is I know about my dad is that he was a good dad and that he would hold me in his arms proudly. People here in Wales, Alaska said that my sister Louise and I looked like twins and would get me and Louise mixed up. They would call Louise, Becca and call me Louise. When my brother Archie Olanna Jr. (Pootoo) was born she would always call him “my baby”. Then a few months later my sister Louise passed on. She died on March 10, 2000 from an aneurysm when she was 4. Louise was loving, caring, and very kind. She loved to sing Silent Night in Inupiaq or English. Always had a smile on her face no matter what.

Now my mom is married to Archie Olanna Sr. and has 9 kids all together. All her kids now are Stacey Tokeinna, Becca Tokeinna, Archie Olanna Jr. Tia Pearl Olanna, Colleen Nicole Olanna, Victor Ray Olanna, Caroline Molly Olanna, Harvey Walter Frank Olanna, and Preston Pete Olanna. I now spend my time in Wales and Nome. Trying to be with my mom and siblings in Nome, and trying to be with my older sister and gram and papa here in Wales.

FEA Week/Last Week of School! :D

This is the last week of school. The FEA group is planning to make the week busy and non-forgettable for everyone. Lets hope this turns out fun.

So far for today after school Janice is going to do an activity of “White-man Games” and “Eskimo Games.” She’s going to start off by playing musical chairs, then go onto leg wrestle, finger pull, mirror, and steal the bacon. This should be fun!

For Tuesday, Fred and I are going to plan an Elders Lunch. We’re just going to have potluck and eat here at the school. So far we’ve already planned that we can bring any kind of food we want here to school and let the elders come and enjoy with us. I have no clue what I’m going to bring for us to enjoy. Lets hope this turns out okay!

For Wednesday, Ernest is going to put on a board games night. It will take place here at the school gym at 7:00PM. I’m pretty sure he’s going to put out lots of board games. Yay Ernest, lets hope everyone enjoys his night of putting on an activity.

For Thursday after school, Becca is going to do activities of basketball like team-on-team or students vs. staff. Something like that, but anything that deals with basketball. Lets hope everyone enjoys this day!

For Friday, Shawna is going to do a movie night. She does not know what movie she will play but it will have to be something that is available. This should be fun!

This week sounds so busy, but everyone is excited it is the last week of school! Woo-hoo!

Next Week

On Friday the 9th there will be prom after high school graduations, and will end at midnight. The community will be welcome to come, and this will be a chance to wear your best clothing. This week will also be FEA week and the FEA club members will each day of this week will be doing an activity. Graduations are for Kindergarten, Preschool and high school, no other grades is getting a graduation ceremony.

 

Next Monday there will be Eskimo and white man games, Tuesday there will be an Elders lunch, and Wednesday there will probably be board games. On Thursday there will be basketball and Friday there will be a movie night. Each activity will have different members of the FEA club will be attending. This week will only happen once a year by the FEA club. Each member will be doing different activities, and it will be open to the community, except on Tuesday, it will be an Elder’s lunch.

 

Prom will be at the school gym. This is the time to wear your best, and you must wear formal clothing or your best outfit. Prom is usually for high school, but this time it is open to all students and community members. All elementary is able to come, but must be with an adult. Prom is once a year, and is a time to dance with whomever you want to, not just be there to stand around.

 

Things that are in mind.

Right now I’m in Journalism class with Rebecca, known as Becca along with her grandmother Lena and our teacher Ms. Mueller.  In class were just going to post an article then do some posters for the seniors graduate & the prom.

 

So far Miss Teri’s class is going to graduate at 7:00pm tonight here at the school.  There are Oliver, Ida, Dave Jr., Toby, Emily M., and Walter.  Congratulate to them! Also on this Friday there are going to be 5 seniors graduating which are Jessie, Timothy, Reuben, Alicia, and Janelle. Congratulate to them! Good job to the class if 2014!

 

So far it’s end of the school and nothing good is happening yet. Just not yet, I hope something good happens. Usually end of the school year it’s a rush, like getting this and that done. But I think this whole school year was terrific!! I’m glad I enjoyed this school year. But one thing, one high school teacher Stacey Mueller is going to move away to Saint Michael. Going to miss her teaching us, but at least she is trying something out new.

Weekend

The weekend was fun because on Friday there was gym. On Saturday there was a “Honor Our Children Day” at the school, and it started at 12pm. They had hamburgers, and apple pie for people who showed up. They had Eskimo games and white man games for the kids. Everyone was welcome to join them in play, most of the adults were playing with their kids.

On Sunday I went up the mountain with Sherrie, Fred, Jr, Becca and Timothy. We started around 7 pm and ended around 10 pm. We saw a lot of reindeer with white fur or brown and they had their babies which are called calves. Jr and Timothy went up little bit more than us. The rest of us hung out by the Hand and talked or watched the village. The sunset was pretty over the village, if you climbed the Hand you could see more of the village or the ice. We were sliding down the snow, seeing who could jump the furthest and tumbling down the hill. I hope when we go up again there will be more of us and it can be even funnier.

Bad Start Good Finish.

During the starting of the school year it was hard because I wasn’t doing well in my grades and attitude. This last quarter I started to come every day I’ve been improving with my attitude and grades and my teachers and principal. I’m glad I started to go school, because my grades are getting better and makes me feel happy about myself.  This year I wasn’t doing that well during the first two quarters but when 3rd quarter of school started I’ve been slowly starting to work and trying to come school early.  I’ve been really trying to fight my lazy life at starting of the first couple quarters.

I’ve been enjoying cooking class and math because I’m doing online math to help me learn more and helping me with the ones I want to learn.  I’m glad that Mr. Campbell always helps me when I need help on some of my work.  What I liked about end of the school year high and middle school went to the valley it was fun it looked really painful when Mr. Dave crashed and did his splits.  While I was sliding down the valley I watched Shawna and Janelle crash in the water creek part.  I wish we can go sliding in the valley and slide again but the weather is extremely warm out.  The snow is melting there is flooding by the bridge, which is turning into a river.  There was supposed to be a ski meet tomorrow but the snow is almost gone.  I’m glad there is gym there is going to be no gym from Tuesday to maybe a few days unless they change the plans for no gym the rest of the week.

Marshall Mathers “Eminem”

Marshall Bruce Mathers the 3rd was born October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri now living in Detroit, Michigan. He is better known by his stage name Eminen or Slim Shady. Eminem is an American rapper, record producer, songwriter, and an actor.

Eminem has been the subject of much scrutiny, both as a rapper and in his personal life. He was married twice to Kimberly Anne “Kim” Scott, whom he met in high school. He first met Kim when he was 15 and she was 13. Kim ran away from her home to live with Eminem and had a kid Hailie born on Christmas Day 1995. He also did drugs.

Eminem is a member of the group D12 and as well Bad Meets Evil, along with Royce da 5’9”. He is the world’s best-selling music artists and has been listed and ranked as on of the greatest artists of all time by many magazines. Working with D12 and the Bad Meets Evil, Eminem has achieved ten number-one albums on the Billboard 200. Eminem sold more then 80 million albums and over 120 million singles worldwide. March 2014, he is the second best selling male artist of the Nielsen Soundscan era and the sixth best overall selling artist in the United States, selling 44.91 million albums.

In my opinion Eminem is my favorite rapper. Listening to his songs puts me in a chill mode. I’ve been listening to Eminem for a while. I cannot see why people do not like his music. But everyone has different type of music. I love listening to Eminem’s songs.
