Eskimo Dancing

Eskimo dance tells stories through the use of gestures. Individuals move their upper body and arms in rhythm with the drums. There is much expression in these dances that can be graceful, energetic or even humorous.

Student Government

Two students from JAAMS are attending Alaska Close Up in Juneau.   Alaska Close Up has been creating Alaska’s future leaders for the past 30 years and has served over 3,000 students.  Alaska Close Up brings Secondary students into Juneau to meet and network with other Alaskan students and teachers. The program seeks to instill a sense of civic duty into Alaska’s youth, helping to inspire them to participate effectively as informed, responsible citizens of our state.  The program teaches students about state government firsthand through an academic curriculum and arranged field trips that introduce them to the role of the three branches of their state government and their responsibilities as a citizen.  Activities include: working with legislators and others in state government to solve a local problem, visiting various government sites, and holding standing committee and legislative session simulations.  Each week-long session is packed with exciting activities that are aligned with Alaska Content Standards.
