From the Eagle’s Nest 

Kwanachigani pe’ekwatu – Eagle’s Nest 

As we continue to stay as healthy as possible, thank you for wearing your masks and helping with the temperature checks.   

All of the classrooms have enjoyed time at the SunUte swimming pool as they swam with pumpkins during the annual “Pumpkin Splash.”  The early childhood (primary) took a field trip to the Jack-a-Lope Acres pumpkin patch. And of course, several departments and the SUIMA students/staff were excited to celebrate Halloween by trick-or-treating!
