The Taft Native Student Association and North Area Indian Education program are hosting their annual “Welcome Back” event on Thursday, Sept. 26, at Taft High 7-12 in Lincoln City. The purpose is to celebrate and plan for the new school year.
Dinner will be served from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. A movie, the light-hearted and award-winning “Smoke Signals,” will be shown at 7 p.m. Taft students and faculty will perform music throughout the event.
All American Indian/Alaskan Native families are invited to come together to enjoy the evening, gather ideas of community needs, and plan activities that encourage students to stay in school and on track, says Juanita Whitebear, Lincoln County School District Indian Education specialist and student advisor.
