November – Native American Heritage Month

November is national Native American Heritage Month. A good way to celebrate is to take the time to learn more about different indigenous communities in America. There are 574 federally recognized tribes in the U.S., and some of the largest groups are the Cherokee, Navajo, Muscogee, Lumbee, Apache, Puebloans, Choctaw, Chippewa, Sioux, Iroquois, Blackfeet, Inuit, Nahuas, Mayas, and Inuit. You can find posters of each of these indigenous groups around the school.

Apple Sales 

Holiday Bakers! 4th and 5th Grade students are selling fresh Rome apples to fundraise for their DC Trip. Buy a 10 lb bag for $15 – cash only. See Mrs. V in the front office for an order form. Orders due Tuesday, November 15.


Please pause for a moment of silence: 

Please stand for the pledge: 

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

Have a wonderful day Blue Wave!
