Indian Education Summer Program Receives Donation



On October 17th the Topeka Public Schools Indian Education Summer Program received a $1,500 donation from the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation. The summer program is led by certified teachers who work with students in the areas of reading and math enrichment, cultural activities, traditional beading, Native American games and art projects. The program also offers breakfast and lunch. Topeka Public Schools has an enrollment of 558 Native American students representing over 20 federally recognized tribes. The Indian Education Program is funded by a federal grant from the US Department of Education Office of Indian Education Program Title VII . We sincerely thank the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation for their generous gift to Topeka Public Schools Indian Education Program.
