Weekly “E-Blast” for Dec 16-20, 2019

Dear Parents & Guardians, 

It was another great week here at St’a7mes School and I can’t believe we are ONLY 1 week away from Winter Break! 

Here is a special quote from of our teachers, Matthew Van Oostdam, on the work we are doing at our school:

“Raised hands to the kids at Aya7Ayulh Chet for their work painting this mural. We spent the morning discussing what in nature we feel most connected to and what we loved in nature. This is the result. Legends, the wildlife that calls this region home, the place we call school and the ocean and rivers where a prized food is found.”


Please find below important information for the upcoming weeks:
