February is the shortest month yet it is packed with many events. February 6 begins the first round of the Regional basketball tournament which is being hosted by SMIS at Fort Defiance. Three days later we will host the semifinals at the Window Rock Sports Center. Our students will participate in Poetry Out Loud in Flagstaff on Feb. 10 and the Science Fair on Feb. 12 and 13. The Senior Class will sponsor a Jeans Day Fundraiser on Feb. 15 to help raise money for their service project and class trip in March. This is in addition to the Bingo Fundraiser planned for Feb. 7 at 6:30PM at the St. Michael Mission. The first and second round of the state basketball tournament will be played in Prescott on the weekends of Feb. 16th and 23rd. Parent/Teacher conferences will be held on Feb. 22 from 5-7PM. I look forward to seeing many of you at these events. May God continue to bless you and hold you in the palm of His hand.
