Student in the Spotlight: Othnelia Amegashie
Sixth-grade, Anne Wien Elementary School
Othnelia Amegashie’s love of learning is evident in everything she does at school. Her teachers say she is passionate about her academics as well as her extracurricular activities.
Every week, Othnelia asks her teacher if she can borrow a classroom science or social studies textbook to go over material they have studied before and to read ahead so she can ask informed questions during classroom lectures.
Though only in sixth-grade, Othnelia is always working with her mind on the future. She is already thinking about college and life beyond grade school.Read full article

Artist in Residence - Margaret Donat
During the first 3 weeks of January, our Kindergarten-3rd Grade River Otters will be lucky to have the opportunity to work with local artist and former FNSBSD teacher, Margaret Donat. Each grade level will work on a separate art project, but all will be creating works of pottery, using clay and our kiln right here at school. Our thanks go to the Alaska State Council for Arts in collaboration with the Fairbanks Arts Association for making it possible for Ms. Donat to work with our Anne Wien students and staff as our Artist in Residence!
Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP)
AMP is computer-based and will be administered for the first time in spring 2015. Learn more about the new assessment and technology practice tests at the Alaska Assessments website.
