One hundred and thirty Kenai Middle School (KMS) seventh graders descended upon Island Lake for a day of outdoor winter fun on February 26, 2016. The annual outing stresses outside life skills and activities, and is centered on an ice fishing contest. Students learned outdoor survival skills, socialized, and took part in fun activities. Twenty-five fish were caught, and trophies and prizes were awarded. The KMS seventh grade Ice Fishing Trip has become a community event, and local businesses show their support for student by donating food, gear, and prizes. A thank you extends to this year’s donors: Country Foods, Trustworthy Hardware, 3 Bears, and the Kenai River Sport Fishing Association (Hooked on Fishing) program.
