Community

December 13, 2008

Community is JD Old Mouse emceeing Lame Deer’s annual Christmas Stroll in sub-zero wind chills.
Community is Rowdy and Kermit braving that same weather to give children horse-drawn rides.
Community is the Lame Deer Trading Post, First Interstate Bank, and the Flower Grinder providing hot drinks.

Community is Maria asking how my students are doing when I visit the registrar’s office to drop off a form.
Community is weekly retention meetings where staff discuss strategies for keeping our students in school.
Community is Patti personally calling each student on the referral list to talk to them about pulling up their grades.

Community is caring enough to do what needs to be done without first considering whether doing it interferes with personal schedules,  protocols, or reputations.

Community is here on this reservation, and although it’s not all peaches and cream, it’s a saving grace
