Kenaitze Cuya Qyut'anen Head Start

Posted: Wednesday, September 29, 2004

All classes will visit the Kenaitze Indian Tribe's beach site to pull the net and the explore the beach, as well as the tribal offices to go cranberry picking this month. Miss Sonja will teach the Dena'ina words for salmon, "luq'a," and lowbush cranberry, "hey gek'a."

In the moose-bear and raven-eagle classrooms, the children have explored and tasted different types of apples and things made with apples and graphed what they liked best. The whale-salmon class will sort shells, do water play and make a dream catcher with treasures found at the beach.

The classes will start their active play schedule with Miss Karen three times a week in the Family House on Thursday.

Lisa Schmitter will train Head Start staff and parents in the "I Can Problem Solve" and "Raising a Thinking Child" problem-solving curricula for 3- and 4-year-olds. The seven-week training starts in October.

Policy Council elections will be held this month, and six parent representatives will be selected.
