We've received a call for donations to the MCPS Native American Student Services Department.
Since 2000, Missoula County Public Schools has lead efforts in Montana to implement "Indian Education for All." This is an opportunity to help Native American students achieve academically, culturally, and socially to graduate and become successful lifelong learners.
The District is committed to developing students' understanding of and respect for American and Montana Indian people and their histories and cultures. Because of the unique position and place in American history, the American Indian peoples’ role in the development of the United States (with emphasis on the experience of the Montana Tribes) shall be included wherever appropriate in the instruction of MCPS students, in accordance with the state constitution and state standards.
Specifically the request is for cotton fabrics (solids and calicos), ribbon, zippers and bias tape for the teaching of and making of ribbon dresses for their sewing classes.
If you would like to donate, please contact Dacia Griego via email or phone at:
