Principal's Corner
Elder's Meditation of the Day April 17
"Women know more about love than men do...Love is taking. Love is sharing. Love is learning things about each other."
--Mary Leitka, HOH
The Elders say Mother Earth shares Her special gifts of love with the Women. The Women know about bringing forth life and nurturing their offspring. Through this gift of love the Earth really makes the Woman special. Men should look upon the Woman with a Sacred Eye. She should be respected. The Woman is a role model for love. When the Woman talks, we should listen; when she shares, we should be grateful. We should all learn about each other.

Grandmother, teach me to love with the power of the Woman.
Happy Birthday!

StudentScholarships.org
is a website which list hundreds of scholarships available to students and parents. This might be a good resource to search for students and parents. I just called their 800 number to ask about fees, there are no fees for students and parents. (Andrea Laverdure, Guidance Director)
Copying Needs - All Staff
All copying needs to be planned. If you need copies, please bring it to the office at least one day in advance. If it is not brought in advance, we cannot guarantee it will be done. (Mr. Laducer)
FAFSA,
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.
