Grand opening kicks off school year at temporary site for Red Lake charter school
September 7, 2022
RED LAKE - A mere 11 months after Endazhi-Nitaawiging broke ground as the first charter school in the Red Lake Nation, around 86 students are ready for the 2022-2023 school year at "The Place Where it Grows."
At a grand opening event on Friday, around 50 community members congregated for a morning of speeches, food, meet-ups with teachers and tours of the temporary school building.
"We do a lot of great things as a tribe, (but) this is the most important piece about being Anishinaabe from Red Lake," Tribal Secretary Samuel Strong said regarding the school's opening.
