300 students and a dog
Friday morning the entire seventh grade was in the Learning Center
to see Karen Land and her dog, Borage. Karen Land is a musher and has raced in the Iditarod several times. She shared stories of the race, showed us the gear, and even dressed Charlie up in some of the many layers a musher has to wear while on the race. Language arts and literature teacher extraordinaire, Carey Fox, arranged the event.
The Highland students really impressed me with all they knew about the race after their study of the Iditarod.
