In celebration of Native American Heritage month (November), Sawtooth Mountain Kindergarten was presented with lessons of Southeast Alaskan Native and Ojibwe/Anishinaabe culture and art. Kindergarten had the opportunity of learning Southeast Alaskan Native culture and art from Kayle Hielscher. Miss Kayle lived in Metlakatla, Alaska home to the Tsimshian (shim-shee-un) tribe before working as a Special Education Teacher at Sawtooth. Students learned about the way of life in Alaska and experienced traditional items specific to Tsimshian people such as cedar roses, rings, earrings, and drums (Pictured is the drums made by Miss Kayle while in Alaska). Mrs. Hood shared with students regalia items specific to Anishinaabe people such as a jingle dress, beadwork, and moccasins. They were able to share in dance, ojibwe songs and stories.
Boys Basketball games scheduled for Monday Dec. 2nd vs. Lakeview Christian have been postponed due to no school in Duluth area. Games will be rescheduled.
