Football field opens for homecoming game

For the past two football seasons, construction of a new football and track facility halted any use of the area.

Since the Fall of 2014, the area has been under construction to rebuild the football field, track and stadium. However, there has been many delays and the completion date was pushed back several times by the construction company and Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Although still not fully completed, on October 20, the Mustangs ran out onto the homecoming and final game of the season against the Pine Ridge Thorpes.

Construction on the stadium will continue.

LWS Awarded with ANA Grant

Little Wound School has been awarded a three year grant from the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) to lead a school-based Youth Suicide Prevention Program for seven schools to integrate an evidence-based suicide prevention model grounded in mind-body medicine (MBM) which teaches simple self-care skills that address the impact of stress on the body. Participants will learn clear, positive strategies to help them deal with the full range of psychological stressors. MBM is also culturally relevant as it draws on many traditional Lakota beliefs about healing and can be easily and meaningfully integrated with traditional ceremonies in group settings. For more information about this project, please call 605-455-6221 or 6222.

LWS Awarded with US Department of Education Grant

Additional instructional support will be provided to students who are not proficient as well as receive additional support towards advanced coursework and college and career readiness. In addition to the academic needs, the project will include counseling and support services to strengthen and build confidence, self-esteem and resilience of students.
