Hello, my name is Mary Jane.  I currently am the Outreach/Alumni Director here at St. Joseph’s Indian School. This summer I previously shared with you some of the travels of the bookmobile.  Next week will be our last week on the road in the St. Joseph’s bookmobile.  We will travel down to Pine Ridge, Rosebud, Mission, St. Francis and other small communities.  Since we started we have driven 3,146 miles, distributing over 2,500 books!  We still have many good titles for next week.

Here on campus the facilities staff are busy painting, scrubbing floors, cleaning homes, shampooing rugs, mowing the grass, inspecting vehicles and the list goes on.  All of this to get ready for the 2011-2012 school year.  We have a great, hard working  staff.

Thank you for making all of our work here at St. Joseph’s possible.   Enjoy your summer!!

At St. Joseph's Indian School, our privately-funded programs for Lakota (Sioux) children in need have evolved over 89 years of family partnership, experience and education. Because of generous friends who share tax-deductible donations, Native American youth receive a safe, stable home life; individual counseling and guidance; carefully planned curriculum based on Lakota culture and individual student needs and tools to help build confidence, boost self-esteem and improve cultural awareness. All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.

  1. The summer moves quickly, doesn’t it? Wish I could be there to help. Maybe someday I will.Do you have volunteers there that help out?
