 About the Elementary School:

 
The elementary school was first occupied by students in February of 2002.  In addition to housing kindergarten through twelfth grade students, our building also contains a spacious library which is available to all grade levels. The District’s multi-use facility, with its modern theater and large gymnasium, offers a state-of-the-art arena for school and community services and affairs. The elementary school has access to numerous computer labs. The school also has wireless internet access througout the building
 
Opening and closing ceremonies featuring the Lakota drum group and Lakota Language review are held weekly. Quarterly awards ceremonies are held to recognize student achievement and perfect attendance. The end of the year honoring Wacipi is well attended and educational. Veteran programs and different types of cultural programs and dances are events that are being integrated into the classrooms.

The district and the elementary school recognize the importance of parental involvement with the operation of the school. By working together, the quality of the educational programs will improve. The school works to foster mutual respect and confidence between parents and the district and an atmosphere of openness and honesty.
