Principal's Corner
Elder's Meditation of the Day April 23
"The real meaning of life is your family, the love that you have, the respect, the traditional ways, and carrying on with them."
--Ethel Wilson, COWICHAN
The family is the seed of the future. The family is the key to the transfer of cultural information. We should really take a look at how we are looking at our families. Are we treating each family member with respect? Are we passing on the traditional ways? Are we teaching the old songs? Are we participating in the ceremonies? Are we showing the family members how to pray? Are we encouraging each family member to be spiritual? Think about these things today.

My Creator, today, let me show respect to each family member.

I am placing a FAFSA information sheet on the guidance website page. The form gives detailed information on what is needed to file A Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA). FAFSA is filed online and is required by all postsecondary institutions for all students. You will need to have taxes completed before filing. I encourage parents to file as soon as possible. FAFSA determines if a student is eligible for PELL grant (federal student aid) and other programs or scholarships. You can get to the guidance website page by going to the Belcourt School District website, then selecting Turtle Mountain Community High School, then selecting Guidance on the left side of the page.
