MS/HS Principal's Corner

It's hard to believe that almost half of the school year is behind us. So many good things have happened since we started back in August. Students at Lower Brule are focused on learning. They have been working hard, and it is starting to show in their work and dispositions. 

Lower Brule students are starting to feel pride in how hard they are working and how much they are achieving. We, the staff at Lower Brule Schools, are engaged in a journey for success with our students. We want them to have every advantage and skill they can take with them in the future. Sometimes they think we make them work too hard, but we only do it because we want them to have every opportunity that can be available to them. We love them and are so glad they are here at Lower Brule Schools.

In addition to academics, Lower Brule students are taught Lakota values. As a staff, we hope to be role models of these values, which we repeat every morning at our opening ceremony. I hope you will join us as we strive to be respectful, generous, brave, honest, compassionate, patient and humble, acting with fortitude, integrity and wisdom.
