November is National Native American Heritage Month. This is a time to celebrate the diverse and rich culture, history and traditions of Native Americans. All Pendleton schools are organizing activities about our local Native American tribes.
Did you know that many of the foods we eat today were first cultivated by Native Americans, including potatoes, corn, peanuts, pumpkins, melons and sunflower seeds? Or that Native Americans were the first to practice conservation and ecology strategies? Please join us as we recognize the contributions of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in our area.To learn more, visit the CTUIR website.
We are the Pendleton School District and together we are committed to Every Student, Every Day!
For the 2019-20 school year, the Pendleton School District has hired 21 new teachers. To celebrate these new faces in our schools, we will introduce them on our district website, district Facebook page and on the website of the teacher's school.
All Pendleton schools will be closed on Monday, November 11th in observance of Veterans Day.
