November – Native American Heritage Month

Did you know Most indigenous tribes in the Southwest can trace their ancestry back to the Mogollon (moh-guh-YOHN), the Anasazi, and the Hohokam (huh-HOH-kum), who first settled in what is now New Mexico thousands of years ago. However, the Apache and the Navajo (NA-vuh-hoh) are the exceptions since they migrated to the Southwestern region from the Arctic over 500 years ago. Due to the Mexican War, the gold rush, and the Civil War, the Southwestern Native Americans lost most of their land. Today, over 20% of Native American population lives in the Southwest, both on and off reservations.

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!
