Working hard in Computers

Computers have been so much fun! The students have earned game days for good behavior and working hard. Kindergarten students have been working hard at learning mouse control and how to navigate games on the computer. They are doing amazing! First graders have been working hard to memorize their usernames and passwords. They are almost ready to pass off logging into their computers without their login cards.

The History of Frybread

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Tue, 11/21/2023 - 20:44

The second grade had a visit from Brenda Beyal, a 30-year veteran teacher and a member of the Navajo Nation. We were so lucky to have her teach us about the history of fry bread. She taught us about the ingenuity required to create the bread from unfamiliar ingredients, showed us the cooking process and recipe, shared a song about fry bread, and topped the presentation off by making fry bread on the lawn of the school. Yum! Yum! Thank you Brenda!
