PȞEŽÍ TȞÓ WÍ 7, 2021 UPDATE
- Tune in to KLND Radio at 9 a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday) to hear our Nest students sing in Lakota, honoring those lost to COVID-19. Your children may have told you about it—this opportunity happened very suddenly and we were notified when it would air today. We’re so proud of our students!
- We have reopened our Wakȟanheza classroom to help accommodate our growing enrollment—three children joined or returned to the Nest in a week’s time! Our younger Lakȟó’iyapi Wahóȟpi students (age three or slightly younger/older) are transitioning into this room to provide adequate space and more individualized attention each day. Our primary teaching staff for the classroom are Tȟuŋwiŋ Shauna, Kianna, Marlene, and Uŋči Grace. But, no worries, your child will continue to see their friends regularly -- our classrooms will continue to be combined for various activities during the day and week.
- Our horse activity, previously scheduled for Thursdays, will move to Mondays from 12:30-2:30 beginning next week. Our Wičhákini Owáyawa students will participate first, allowing our younger children to get in a good nap. If you haven’t yet signed a release for your child to participate we will have that available for you this week.
- You may also be aware that the Nest received several hydroponics towers for the Wičhákini Owáyawa classroom. Jamie Lee Archambault will visit that classroom on Thursdays between 1-2 p.m. to teach our children about how to grow their own vegetables. This is a great opportunity to build on what they have learned about gardening and picking nature’s wild offerings on the prairie.
