Greetings from St. Joseph's Indian School!
As the snowflakes gracefully fall outside my window at St. Joseph's Indian School, I wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your generous support. Your commitment to our mission allows us to provide a nurturing environment that empowers Lakota (Sioux) children to dream of a brighter future.
Through your generosity, St. Joseph’s Indian School empowers children and young adults to face the challenges of life with strength, resilience and a deep sense of cultural identity.
And sometimes those traits are needed more during certain seasons than others … such as winter! Winter in rural America is no easy feat. However, St. Joseph's Indian School embraces the winter by providing indoor recreation and leisure activities when the children aren’t out enjoying the snow. Some students are taking time to learn to sew and bead, while others take to the basketball court to work on their three-point shots. All in all, we’re not letting the snow and cold get us down!
We extend our gratitude for your continued support. Your compassion and generosity truly make a world of difference in the lives of our students. As we continue this winter season, we are reminded of the warmth and love that come from a kȟolá — friend — like you.
May this season be filled with joy, love and blessings for you and your loved ones.
Peace and Blessings,
Fr. Greg Schill, SCJ
