Saint James School In Yesterday's JI

Some of our third graders were featured in the “Out & About” section of yesterday’s Journal Inquirer.  The text was slightly abridged, so here is the full version, along with the picture that was in the paper:

In honor of Native American Heritage Month, third Graders at Saint James School adopted the name of a historic Native American which they have been using in class all month long.  The students also weaved headbands to wear and have completed a research paper on their Native American namesake to share with the class.

Pictured are (Back L to R) Geronimo (Peyton Carpenter), Susan LaFleshe (MaKenzi Pelletier), Sitting Bull (Kevin McCarthy), Wilma Mankiller (Tahlia Crowley);  (Front L to R) Tonita Pena (Isis Edwards), Plenty Coups (Kevin Zaluda), Maria Tallchief (Emma St. Jean) and Chief Joseph (Jaideep Naik).
