School portrait, days gone by

I don’t have details, but I found this image with a note that I had scanned it for the late Irene Cameron, a dear family friend. I’m thinking Lake Campbell school, Thirties. It’s a classic.

Fall in the air

A flight over Anacortes Thursday morning revealed football players practicing on War Memorial Field at Anacortes High School (AHS). In addition, there was a crew doing roof repairs on the high school. The first day of school must be just around the corner.

Snow indeed

It’s only a matter of time now before neighborhood kids with sleds and discs begin to populate the hill on our corner.

Looking out

I captured this image of a crew working on an “M” Avenue power line (right) while I was visiting the school district office at Anacortes Middle School on Thursday. Mt. Baker was obscured by a cloud, but this is a nice view of Fidalgo Bay. On the left is the steeple at Anacortes Lutheran Church.

Memorial art

This art, which appears on the wall of a stairway at Anacortes High School, was created last year by members of the student leadership class. It reads: “In honor of those who looked fear in the face, battled it with courage and are no longer with us today.”

Teachers get head start

All throughout the community, teachers like Didi Funk at Island View Elementary School spent time this week preparing their classrooms for students. Funk, a veteran fifth grade teacher, was conducting an “out-with-the-old” sweep of her classroom at the time this photo was taken. For more back to school photos, see Activities section.
