This months' spotlight is the Sault St. Marie Chippewa Indian Tribe! With 44, 000 members, they are primarily located in the state of Michigan and in the lower part of Ontario Canada across Michigan's border. This Indian Tribe originated from a group of native people dating from 3000 B.C. living in the Great Lakes region. They are divided into clans including - Crane, Loon, Bear, Fish, Marten, Deer and Bird. Stop by the map and learn some more interesting facts!

Please mark your calendars for our next PTA meeting on November 15th at 7 pm in the Dodge library.
PTA meetings have been streamlined to allow for various speakers on relevant topics for parents. At the November meeting, we will be hearing from child psychologist, Dr. Justin A. Naylor.
Justin A. Naylor, PhD, Licensed Psychologist will present on building self-esteem in children. Parents will take away key building blocks on how they can help their kids develop a healthy sense of self and have the tools to be able to manage many common challenges that occur in childhood. Dr. Naylor is a practicing psychologist in Williamsville, NY who specializes in the assessment and treatment of ADHD, anxiety, and Autism. He is the father of two children and enjoys spending time with family, sailing, and learning new things.
After Dr. Naylor's brief presentation, the general PTA meeting agenda will be discussed including an important budget and fundraising update.
We hope to see you there.
