TrekNorth recognizes and celebrates Indigenous People's Day!
We would like to give a huge thank you to Audrey Thayer for being our guest speaker on Indigenous People's Day for Chance's American history class! Chi Miigwetch!
This week we had fun doing street art and writing letters to our classmates who are at home. Spreading positivity and good vibes through service and learning! Check out the Newsletter for more photos and Unified Club information.

We've had many staff birthdays lately! Join us in wishing Lia, Shelby, Andy, and Jennifer happy (some belated) birthdays! Yesterday, Andy received a birthday call from Sundog Alum Jake A. because they share birthdays, so we also want to share a special belated happy birthday to Jake!
UNIFIED SCHOOLS: Join the Revolution! As most of you know, last year TrekNorth joined the Unified Schools movement. This is part of the Special Olympics of Minnesota family and opens up many opportunities for our students of ALL abilities. What is Unified? The best way to explain it is to think of it this way..... "Inclusion is being invited to the dance. Unified is being asked to dance." This school year will be different but we will still be able to participate in lots of fun activities coordinated across our region and state. Our representative is Shannon Murray, who happens to be a parent of two Sundogs, X and Tilly S. She will help this year be a success! First off, please congratulate Tilly S. for competing and winning at the Back to School UCS Challenge! She completed a week of virtual challenges and won $250 for TrekNorth Unified programming! We have two Unified activities to start the year off that students will be doing in classes, advisory, or 6/7 hours. First is writing notes to the full-time remote learning kids. Second is a sidewalk chalk activity! We will take photos and share with other Unified schools to spread the love!
It is October! Check out these recipes from "Eating with the Seasons -Anishinaabeg Great Lakes Region."
