Navajo Government Class

Article By: Natalie Billie

"There are two options for Navajo Government Classes this year, Government Class is one of two prerequisite classes for the Navajo Nation Chief Manuelito Scholarship. You must take Navajo Government and Navajo Language to qualify! The FIRST class is online and ON YOUR OWN, you must register through me (email me at eileen.quintana@nebo.edu) for the online course. The SECOND option is the live class, held at Jordan High School in Sandy on 4 Saturdays (Feb-March). Registration for the live class is just showing up to the first class at Jordan High School. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING THE LIVE CLASS! There is a commitment, you CANNOT miss one class in both the online/live class. Please send me (Eileen) an email to let me know which class your student will be taking."

Larsen Elementary After School Lab

Article By: Analysa Allison and Photos By: Natalie Billie and Eileen Quintana

Our after-school lab at Larsen Elementary is in full swing. We have had such a great turn out this year with eager to learn students, and very supportive parents. Our Larsen lab is offered on Mondays from 2-5 pm and Wednesdays 3-5 pm. We offer homework help, cultural enrichment, and our performing arts groups have their practice during lab.

Students ranging from 3-18 years old have joined us at the Larsen lab this year. All of the students are extremely talented in different areas such as reading, writing, math, drawing, dancing, singing, etc. That is just to name a few talents we have come across. Many have joined our performing arts group as well, and have their own first performances already. This year our youngest performer being just 3 years old.

Many of our parents have been creating some beautiful regalia for our performing arts group. Our parent committee even meets weekly to work on regalia together. If you are parent interested in working on regalia with us or even a parent wanting to learn how to make regalia please contact Julie Cruz for more information.
