In Nebo School District, we have seven Junior Highs and eight High Schools. Each one of these schools has a Native Club that meets monthly with one of our Title VI Representatives. At Native Club Meetings, American Indian students come together to explore American Indian History, discuss recent American Indian issues happening in our community, students help each other with homework/assignments, and create arts & crafts.
This year, I am the Title VI Representative at Springville Junior High School. We only have a handful of American Indian students, however, their attendance and participation is consistent. This group of American Indian Students has been a joy to work with. Some have grown up outside of Nebo School District, and their perspective adds so much insight into the conversations and discussions we have.
During the month of December, SJHS Native Club has been working diligently on making earrings to give as Christmas gifts to their loved ones. Each student designed their own pair of earrings. As I was looking at the earrings that were created I noticed that use of color and symmetry flowed beautifully. We have such talented and creative students, and I was very proud of their finished earrings.
