Two Eagle River School spring language mini-conference and “Artists for Eagles” fund raising event set for May 12-13

From TERS Booster Club

In mid-May, the Two Eagle River School will sponsor a mini-language conference at the Kwataqnuk Resort, on May 12 and 13.

This school-sponsored event is intended to increase language awareness as well as build language skills. The event will include a fund raising event called “Artists for Eagles” which consists of a raffle and silent auction. All proceeds of the event will go to “jump start the TERS Eagles Booster Club”.

The Booster Club is a model supported by the school board and administration as another way to involve students, families and the community in the school. Earlier this week, the staff at Two Eagle participated in a voluntary survey regarding proposed booster club activities. The hope is the Booster Club can help with recognition of academic achievement, cultural engagement, athletic achievement and personal commitment.

Leroy Black Jr., TERS Board Chairman, expressed support for the Artists for Eagles event stating “there are so many talented artists in our community that have strong ties to this school. We encourage artists to come forward and donate an item in appreciation for the school and students.”

Items donated may be dropped off at the school office in Pablo.

Gently used pow wow regalia, beadwork, jewelry no longer worn, sewing, knitting, quilting, cooking, woodwork, ceramic and metal work will all be accepted for the May silent auction.

Anything can be donated and all donations are appreciated.

The TERS raffle will include a two hour private boat cruise on the Shadow and four dinner cruise tickets on the Shadow. This is the perfect way to get rid of the winter blues – plan a summer outing. TERS Raffle tickets for the boating events will be sold starting mid April. Questions about the Artists for Eagles event and donations to the silent auction or raffle may be directed to Teresa Wall McDonald at 676-2018.

First Artist for Eagle donors include Bob Bell, Denise Fyant and Cheri Cote. Many more donations are forthcoming.

The kick off TERS Booster Club meeting was held on March 2 and four individuals came. The next Booster club meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 6. Meetings are held at the school lunchroom in Pablo and start at 6 pm. The community is invited and welcome.
