Welcome to Wyoming Indian Schools
Nowa – Yá’át’ééh,
It is hard to believe we are already a quarter of the way done with the 2018-19 school year. We are off to a fast start and a lot of great things going on in the district. Enrollment at Wyoming Indian Schools is around 660 students, the best its been over the last 10 years.
Each school has an attendance goal they have set at the beginning of the school year. Overall, we would like to see our attendance goal at Wyoming Indian Schools to be 95%. We need the help and support of our parents and guardians to attain this goal.
I have been impressed with our students and student-athletes this fall. At the high school, we had around 50% of our students out for a sport. We had an additional 10% of high school students staying after school for varying activities. We have roughly 155 students in the high school, 90 plus students were involved in an after-school activity. Add to that, our Traditional Club involves many students who travel to different schools and towns to not only showcase our awesome students but our beautiful culture we incorporate daily in our schools.
At the middle school, 50% of our students were involved in after school activities and students staying after school to work on their academics. We have started some activities at the elementary school that have involved many students.
In all, our students are being active, they are being involved and engaged in many aspects that our schools offer. We are looking at more activities our student can be involved in. "After school activities are shown to provide a number of benefits for your child. Getting involved in activities is shown to help children be more extroverted and responsible. Children are overall happier and healthier when they are engaged in things they enjoy doing."
Wyoming Indian Schools are constantly looking for substitutes, we will be offering a substitute class at the beginning of December. This class will be FREE. We will get more information out when the time nears.
Lastly, we will be launching our new website in November. We have been working on this project over the past year. We anticipate some minor problems as we launch it, but feel we have a great website design. Once we get the website up, the URL will be www.wyomingindianschools.com
As the holidays approach, would like to wish you the best during this holiday season.
Owen St. Clair, Superintendent
