Welcome and Program Overview
Enjoy the summer with your child and we look forward to seeing them next fall! If you have any questions about paperwork whether it be regarding the 506C Forms, JOM Forms, or about enrollment please e-mail and I will respond as I am able. I will be back in the office August 28, 2017.
If there are no concerns I look forward to seeing you and your children next fall at orientation, on the first day, and conferences! If you get a chance stop by and see us! We will be reveiwing the grant expenditures for the year, what either needs changes, what was done well, and also discussing what to look forward to next year.
If your child is looking for a summer job or camp opportunities, there are some resources on this websitelocated under the scholarship/camp opportunities.
Rounding up what we have accomplished so far this school year we have toured 9 college campuses, attended 3 job/career/expos in various areas, elected in a new parent committee, provided various opportunities for cultural exploration both in and out of school, and have learned about one another as individuals! Next year we look forward to having another exceptional year! All I ask is that we communicate and have interest in the activities provided.
There was new staff this year in Indian Education so hopefully we are going in the right direction and providing what your children need. I will continue to work on providing/integrating the Native American Culture and again, I am asking to have your support in assisting your children with schoolwork, homework, getting them to school prepared, and with their attendance!
Also, please let me know what information that you may like to see or discussed with your students from an educational aspect and I will be happy to look for resources to assist. My contact information is on this page. Thank you!
