Indigenous Education

 Medicine Wheel.jpgKLO has two Indigenous Student Advocates on staff; we are Jody Dargatz and Katy Leslie. We work together from the Gathering Room. The Gathering Room is located in room number 42. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to visit, so together we can create a community that your child and family will be proud to be a part of. You can find us Monday to Friday from 8:30-4:00. The hours may vary slightly due to meetings and off site commitments.


Using the teachings of the Four Food Chiefs as our guide:

We support children, fostering intellectual + cultural growth through an Indigenous mindset.   ü We empower each student to explore + strengthen their personal identity.

 We offer cultural opportunities that strengthen home, school and community connections.

 We support our students to nurture healthy relationships that promote health + well that will  inspire confidence and a sense of connectedness to others.
