ACTION ALERT: NARRAGANSETT SCHOOL NEEDS ASSISTANCE TO STAY OPEN THIS SPRING
The Nuweetooun School in Exeter, Rhode Island, is New England's only
independent,Native-American-..run school currently serving Native
children. The school uses a holisticcurriculum, based on Native
culture and history, to nurture and engage students K-8. Because
most students are unable to make tuition, Nuweetooun is supported
heavily by private donations from individuals, local tribes, and
This spring, already stretched to the limit, school staff have learned
that they must replace some old lead pipes in their building, or risk
closing. The cost of the project is $8K, and the volunteer board of
directors has already managed to raise $6K. A final push now of small
donations from interested supporters could help Nuweetooun stay open
and continue its mission!
