Dear Community Members, Parents and Students:
Our mission is to prepare students for success in college and careers and to support the development of their Navajo language and culture. TYGHS staff, students, parents, and community members work together to provide the best possible educational program for our students.
TYG is an Apple ConnectEd school – 1 of 114 in nation, 1 of 6 in New Mexico (only a high school in NM) Installation of new wireless equipment has been completed. iPads have been deployed to Student Council reps, chapter house reps, and leadership team members. Teachers received iPads and MacBooks on May 18th and classroom infrastructure was installed May 25th. Students participated in a digital literacy boot camp May 23rd and teachers participated in professional development May 26th and 27th. Digital Literacy Boot camp and student iPad rollout is scheduled for August 11th and 12th.
TYG has added a Fire Science Program in partnership with the Pueblo Pintado Fire Department and San Juan College. We are excited about the opportunities this program will provide to our students and community.
TYG hosts a series of Navajo cultural events (powwows, shoe games, gourd dances) - please see the school calendar for dates and times.
Please see the attached DRAFT initial 90-day plan for the 2016-17 school year and our EPSS for 2016-17.
We have also attached the agenda for our Schoolwide Welcome Back and Apple ConnectEd iPad deployment on August 11th and 12th.
Please stop by and visit or give us a call. We welcome your input and ideas for improving our school.
