NATIVE AMERICAN STUDENT SERVICES
Combining Education with Culture
WE ARE A SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR OUR NATIVE AMERICAN STUDENTS GRADES PRE-K - 12th AT YPS. OUR GOAL IS TO STRENGTHEN OUR STUDENT'S TRIBAL KNOWLEDGE AND ACADEMIC SKILLS WITH A VARIETY OF SERVICES.
Title VI Activities
We provide several activities throughout the school year for different grade levels. Some of our activities are done in the classroom so that all students have the opportunity to learn about Native American culture. We also provide arts and crafts and evening events for NASS students and their immediate families.
Activities and events will vary for each school year.
