In addition to school work and sports at St. Joseph’s, our Lakota students learn important social skills in their homes on campus.
Each Wednesday, we hold an Enrichment Night!
They may practice appropriate ways to answer the phone, learn table etiquette, recieve packing tips, or make birthday and thank you cards for a friend or family member.
Parents and guardians are invited to share Enrichment Nights with the students, either as a presenter or guest.
Homes have had grandmothers visit and make fry bread, parents have shared holiday activities and alumni have shared stories of their path to higher education and a career.
On some occasions, Enrichment activities take us into the Chamberlain community.
Last year, in preparation for the holidays, seventh-grade students visited a local retirement home and helped decorate a Christmas tree with star ornaments they made.
The residents were thrilled with the decorations and, more importantly, our students learned how great it feels to share their artwork and spend time with their elders.
