Native American Community

Instructor: Mr. Silliman
This website is dedicated to our students from our Native American Communities. From here you will be able to post local events, activities both in and out of school as well as see what is going on at Enchanted Hills Elementary School.

Though anyone can join this club, funding and assistance can be provided for students who qualify under the Title VII grant. This grant allows EHES to use some funding for supplies, tutoring, and activities here at school!

Who qualifies for the Title VII Grant?
You may be wondering who or how I know your child qualifies for the TItle VII Grant, it is a very simple process. When your child registered with our school you marked ethier A.) Native American under Ethnicity or B) Indian under Race. At that time you should have recieved a 506 form to fill out. I recieved a notification of who did this from the district office in order to help your child this year and provide services to them. Thats it!
These services are completely free to your child, as long as I have the funding available for them. We receive our funding through the Title VII which is a Federal Grant.

New to the school or possibly wanting to see if your eligible? All you need to do is fill out the 506 form, which needs you to be registered with a recognized tribe in the United States (Does not need to be local) and your child needs to be at least 1/8 from Native Heritage. The office or myself can provide you with the 506 Form at anytime!

I hope this helps, and I welcome any new members!
