Sisters Maddy and Kaity Wyatt are the students of the week. Maddy, 8, is a third-grader at Glacier Valley Elementary School. She enjoys ballroom dancing. "It's something new," Maddy said. Kaity, 12, is a seventh-grader at Floyd Dryden Middle School. She recently returned from Napakiak as part of the Rose Urban Rural Exchange program. Along with other students and a teacher, Kaity spent five days learning about the lifestyle of children her age in a rural Alaskan village. "I had a lot of fun," Kaity said. "I went ice fishing and caught a fish and we went dog mushing. We really learned about the subsidence lifestyle and how they can't go to the store for anything."
