Iditarod 2024

Great Expectations School Students Celebrate Iditarod

The first-grade class at Great Expectations School are eagerly following along the historic long-distance Iditarod race in Alaska. The students track local musher Erin Altemus and close-friend Anna Hennessy on the GPS Iditarod map throughout the day, keeping a close eye on their progress.

The 1st grade students are classmates of Sylvia Altemus-Schmidt, the daughter of Erin Altemus and Matt Schmidt.

Below are photos from recent Iditarod projects where students learn about the dogs, the mushers, and the sled at GES:
