Classroom Checkpoints

After a 13 hours of airports and flights from Wisconsin to Alaska on Monday, I’m finally getting settled.  It may take a few more days to acclimate to the time change, but I’ll get there.  This week I am visiting schools around the Wasilla area and I’m looking forward to that.

Back at the WLC, preparations are in place for the start of the race.  Each classroom was assigned a checkpoint (a few classes had to double up because we are a big school) and they decorated their door with their checkpoint name and other interesting facts.  Each class – and other support staff –  has a musher they are following during the race.  When the race begins, they will move their mushers to the checkpoints around the building.  This is a great way to get an entire school involved in the race bringing a different part of the world into your part of the world.
