What We Have Done
In addition to funding Physical Education, Music and Art instruction for all students, the Foundation supports the school in other areas. Here are some of the projects undertaken since 2015.
:: Campus Beautification- Volunteers painted a butterfly mural in the center of campus and 2 coyote murals on the playground wall ball walls. We also purchased fence cups that say “Coyote Pride” that were put along the playground fence.
:: New Sound System—State of the art sound system, speakers and microphones for use at all Tribal Meetings and other school-wide events, such as the Halloween Parade and the Annual Variety Show.
:: Library Renovation—Complete overhaul of the library including new furniture, carpet, tile floor, window treatments, paint and reading nook; professional artists created murals and more. Over 1500 new books gifted through a partnership with Barnes and Noble.
:: Expansion of School Garden—Our community garden built drought-resistant wicking beds, provided a pumpkin seedling for each student to take home, and implemented the Garden to Table program.
:: Classroom Grants—Funds for each classroom to cover materials that otherwise the teacher would purchase, training opportunities to better support curriculum instruction, and subscriptions to Scholastic news magazine.
:: Staff Lounge Make-Over—Renovation of staff lounge including new paint, reading area, and art mural.
