Our DRUM PAINTING event was a huge success!

Our Tacoma Public Schools Indian Education Program November DRUM PAINTING EVENT was a huge success!  We had over 100 students, parents, and extended family attend.  The students created some great looking drums.  We had dinner both nights and some great family time for all!  

Thank you to all of the families who attended and the parents who volunteered to lead activities.  This was a wonderful family bonding event.

It is great to be able to assist families during the holidays. Our heartfelt thank you goes out to the Puyallup Tribe and their support of the TPS Indian Education program and the events and food that we are able to provide.
