      TJES student accomplishments were recognized Friday, February 6 during an awards assembly attended by United Tribes President Dr. David M. Gipp. Dr. Gipp was presented a JTES Waste’ Way t-shirt, which means respecting self, others, environment, children, teachers, and property.

Go For The Green  

      TJES students also received the new, green Waste’ Way t-shirt. Why green? Just like a traffic light, green means “Go,” as in keep on working hard, that’s why we went for that color. Green means make good choices in working toward your goal.

Day For Skiing

      Grades 4-8 were scheduled to go skiing on February 20. The location was Huff Hills, south of Mandan.
