ASD MEMORANDUM #199 (2011-2012)

February 27, 2012

TO: SCHOOL BOARD

FROM: OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT

SUBJECT: RECOGNITION OF ERMALEE HICKEL AND CINDY ROBERTS FOR BOOK DONATION

The Anchorage School District’s Alaska Studies teachers will greatly benefit from receiving the book, “Cracking the Code: A Citizens Guide to the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline Discussion,” donated by Ermalee Hickel and Cindy Roberts.

This is a unique resource that will strengthen the understanding of the pipeline and oil and gas issues, as well as be a great addition to the District’s Alaska Studies materials. The book supports a wide-range of social studies and science related conversations, from government to geology and physics. It will enable teachers to build a strong understanding of this issue in our next generation of Alaskan leaders.

“It is so generous of Ermalee Hickel and Cindy Roberts to provide this resource to all Alaska Studies teachers. It is with partnerships such as these that we can strengthen our teachers and together build a strong and engaged Alaskan citizen,” said ASD’s Social Studies Coordinator Pamela Orme.

It is requested that the Board officially thank and recognize Ermalee Hickel and Cindy Roberts for their generous donation of 50 copies of this book. Their thoughtfulness and effort to advance the District’s mission are greatly appreciated.

ASD Core Value: Public education should be responsive to an ever-changing world.
