Who doesn’t love this time of year? There seems to be something for everyone to do this time of year. Watching football, hunting, baking, or leaf peeping drives, apple picking, cooking, and trips to the pumpkin patch; there are so many things to do, and the nice part is the cool crisp mornings, and the warm sunny afternoons. These are some of the things that we, at Indian Township School, all enjoy this time of year. 

Some enjoy the sport of hunting. We here at Indian Township enjoy hunting for sustenance; providing food for our families, and that is what we teach our youth. Congratulations to Dehkin Sockabasin for shooting his first moose this weekend past. Dehkin, grade 6, is learning at a young age how to provide sustenance for his family. Good job!

On Thursday October 13, ITS will hold its annual Native American Day celebration from 9:00 until 11:00 AM in the school gym. The children will perform traditional songs and dances, followed by a traditional meal. We will have an early dismissal: Pre-K at 10:45 and K through 8 at noon. There is no school Friday as we honor our Native American Day holiday.

Wednesday October 19 is National Garlic Day! We will celebrate this day with an activity after school at 3:00, open to all students in grades 4 through 8. We will be making a garlic hummus with lots to sample and take home. This activity is sponsored by the ITS After School Program, Farm to School, and our own ITS Community Garden, working together for the well-being of our kids. 


That’s all the news for this week. Until next week, take care, and never stop learning!
