RED LAKE -- Despite diminished funding due to canceled fundraising events, officials at St. Mary's Mission school in Red Lake Nation said new things are in store for the school, according to a letter sent to the community on Nov. 23.

The school is moving ahead with establishing an eighth-grade level as well as a preschool class for 3- and 4-year-olds, due to parent demand.

Next year, St. Mary's will also begin a new afterschool STEM (Science, Technology, Math and Engineering) program for the middle school. The school also recently hired a full-time school psychologist.
