Good day from St. Joseph’s Indian School.
Things are ‘normal’ here on campus, meaning we are meeting ourselves coming and going.
The 7th graders returned from their cultural trip a few days ago and shared where they went and what they learned with the younger grades yesterday.
The 6th-8th graders in the Explorers Club have been down in Kansas City watching the Royals play. They washed over 80 cars and brought in $5,000 in donations and pledges! The money was donated to the City of Chamberlain to help with the construction of a Frisbee golf course.
On Monday afternoon, we had the blessing and ground breaking for the new Health and Family Services Center. This building will have our healthcare and counseling services all under one roof, better enabling us to care for the whole child—mind, body, heart and spirit. The current health center is located in the old nun convent that was built in 1963 and converted to the Freimann Health Center in 1982. With both students and staff families taking advantage of the nurses and local healthcare providers in attendance, new space was needed.
