Be Respectful…Be Responsible…Be Safe

All grades K-12, continue to focus on students becoming positive, responsible individuals.  Each teacher is following the same classroom policies and procedures for consistency across the grade levels. 

All grades are paying particular attention to the 8 Keys of Excellence for character development.  These “Keys” include: 

INTEGRITY – Match behavior with values

FAILURE LEADS TO SUCCESS – Learn from mistakes

SPEAK WITH GOOD PURPOSE – Speak honestly and kindly

THIS IS IT! – Make the most of every moment

COMMITMENT – Make your dreams happen

OWNERSHIP – Take responsibility for actions

FLEXIBILITY – Be willing to do things differently

BALANCE – Live your best life


2016-2017 Accelerated Reader Report


Having kids read a lot is one of the crucial components of becoming a good reader. Young readers need to become practiced at recognizing letters and sounds. The only way to get good at it is to practice.  Please read to and with your children!  Top reading award (a new bike!) for 2017-2018 went to second grade student Starling Shopteese who read 98 books!

Do you need a sitter for your little one?  Our Little Warriors Daycare program continues to increase its enrollment.  Acceptance is based upon specific criteria - we would encourage Tribal working families with children 0-5 years of age to visit with us regarding enrollment in the tuition free program.


Parent Involvement boosts student achievement?

Parent Involvement is a better predictor of academic success than standardized tests?


·       Parent involvement in education is crucial.  Students with involved parents are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school.

·       The most accurate predictors of student achievement in school are not family income or social status, but the extent to which the family creates a home environment that encourages learning, communicates high yet reasonable expectations for the child’s achievement, and becomes involved in the child’s education at school.

·      When parents are involved at school, the performance of all the children at school, not just their own, tends to improve.


Students do a lot of reading each day and when they can’t see they can’t perform.  Please help them be successful in school by helping remind them to wear their glasses every day!  They are welcome to leave their glasses in their desks at the end of each school day if that will help solve the problem of many students forgetting and leaving them at home and then “struggling” to see their work.  Thank you in advance for your help with this important issue.
