Did you know this ditch by the school leads to Keweenaw Bay? Did you know the city of Baraga gets their drinking water from Keweenaw Bay? The 8th graders do. Earlier this winter they planned a project that could help protect their drinking water resource. Today they put that plan into place and spent their class time cleaning up waste that had the potential to contaminate their drinking water. Way to go Vikings!
Here is the latest footage from the 2021 graduation ceremony, including the drone footage from the parade.

As of today (5/27), Baraga Area Schools is planning on having graduation outside on the football field at the Osterman Complex. We realize that it might be cooler than expected with a slight breeze off the bay, but due to an abundance of caution, and with recent covid cases, we believe this to be the best approach to honor our seniors in a proper way. Please dress for the weather, it will be chilly. Unless rain moves into the area, we will stick with this plan.
