Grade 9 Program

January 23, 2024

At Children of the Earth, we are working hard to embrace the vision of the Indigenous, grass roots community activists and knowledge keepers that brought our school into being just over 30 years ago. Our purpose and vision is for our students to learn all they can so they can be best prepared to use their individual gifts and talents to give back to the community, live a good life, and lead our nations with wisdom, courage, and strength. We look forward to doing this work with all of you!
