  • My children, one in Kindergarten and the other in 5th grade are really learning the Navajo Language. I am so proud of my children. I am so thankful for the teachers that are so patient with my kids. The teachers and the entire staff at the school treat my children with respect and are filling them with knowledge and wisdom. Thank you Tsehootsooi Dine Bi'olta'.
