Culture & Language in Elementary School

Teachers in the elementary building collaborate across the grades to integrate culture and language into our learning environment and curriculum.  This includes, but is not limited to, Science, Math, Reading, Social Studies, Culture, and Physical Education. The teachers work with the Culture and Whulshootseed Language instructors in the classroom to insure that the Muckleshoot Tribal culture and language is at the forefront of their learning experience. Traditional foods are served in the cafeteria every Thursday. Students have many opportunities to learn traditional ways and interact with the natural world such as field trips to Tomanamus Forest, gathering nettles, working in the garden, and making mats from traditional materials.
