Stand for the pledge of allegiance Vikings (wait 3 seconds)

We pause to acknowledge that Odle Middle School resides on the traditional and occupied land of the Coast Salish Peoples – past, present, and future. We honor their connection to the region, pay respect to Coast Salish Elders past and present, and stand in solidarity through their struggles.

Oh, Vikings, how can you make sure you know where your personal belongings are, that they are safe & secure? By using your own assigned locker! If you have forgotten which locker is yours &/or your combination, you can look this up in Student Vue. If you are needing more support in learning how to use your locker, please contact Miss Gayle or another staff person you trust.

 

November is Native American Heritage Month! Native American Heritage month started in 1990 and was made to recognize the first Native American’s contributions to our nation, America. Some native American tribes in Washington are: The Snoqualmie Tribe, The Chinook Tribe, The Spokane Tribe, and many more! Did you know? Seattle was named after Native American chief, Chief Si’ahl (Pronounced See-halt). You can celebrate and participate in Native American Heritage Month by learning more about Native American cultures, attend events about Native American Heritage, visit museums about Native American Culture, and learn history about Native American Heritage Month and Native Americans.

 

 

Today’s lunch is teriyaki chicken with broccoli and brown rice.

 

Have a great day, everyone!

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
