Township School boys Basketball team has started off the season with a win against Calais in their first game of the season!  They are currently at a standing of 2 wins, 1 loss. Win or lose, our Warriors, both boys and girls, play hard, and we are proud of them. Wednesday December 17, Calais will be at ITS, and Thursday the 18th will be the rescheduled game with Eastport, at Eastport.  Next week, ITS will play at Lubec on Tuesday December 23. Good luck to all players!

The After School Program will hold a holiday gathering on Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00 in the cafeteria. The Drama Club will perform a Christmas play, and hot chocolate and cookies will be served. After the Christmas break, there will be no ASP scheduled activities during the first week back. The staff will be planning the next 6 week session of activities. The program will resume on January12.

 The library offers an incentive to students in grades 2 through 8 to earn free books. For every 10 books a student reads, they get to choose a book to take home and keep. I am proud to announce the following 4th and 5th grade students who have read 10 or more books and are well on their way to earning their second free book. Kuli Kisehtultipa (you have all done well).  Congratulations to:

Indian Township lost an elder last week. Before I end this week’s column, I would like to take a moment to extend our sympathies to the family of Lorraine Gabriel. Lorraine’s children are past students of ITS, and many of her grandchildren are students at present. In the 1970’s, Lorraine worked as a Bilingual Teacher here at ITS and was teacher to our current Bilingual Teachers; a perfect example of how everything in life happens in a circle. She will be missed, and we feel her family’s sadness.


That’s all the news for this week. Here’s to a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season spent with those you treasure. Until next week, take care of yourselves, keep learning, and have a Merry Christmas!
