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.
Turkeys were handed out to TPS Indian Education Program families for the Thanksgiving holidays. 100+ birds were distributed on November 19th and 20th . 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.
Turkeys all bagged up and ready to distribute to our families.
