Happy New Year in 2014! Yá’át’ééh Amá dóó Azhé’é! Hello Parents and new students, my name is Mrs. Lita Paddock. My clans are: Near-the-Mountain Towering House people, Red House, Yucca Fruit, and Bitter Water. I am originally from Gray Mountain, Arizona and live in Leupp, Arizona.
40% of the Flagstaff Bordertown students are making the honor roll of 3.0 and above as of the First Semester at Flagstaff High School. This is an upgrade from the previous 34%. Congratulations to students who are still making the honor roll and staying in the 4.0 status!
I want to encourage the parents to speak to your children on the importance of doing well in school, being responsible and developing good character with leadership skills. We would like for all our students to be making the honor roll and aggressively looking into future planning for college, career and beyond.
On February 4-8, Miss Dook’o’ooslííd Kristen Woody and the dorm’s student council president Martinez Wagner will be attending the 2014 National Indian Education Association (NIEA) Legislative Summit in Washington DC. Congratulations to the two students who will represent the dorm at this national policy-making conference.
