Please make sure somone is home. Please wear your mask when our drivers deliver to your home.
In the midst of a global pandemic, our school made the transition to an online format. Many events that we look forward to each year were canceled, and we were left with few ways to showcase the talent of our students at Isna Wica Owayawa. Because of this, we have created an Online Art Show. Some of these pieces are fan art, some were made in art practice, others are originals, but each one displays the talent of our incredible students. I hope that you enjoy this walk through our (Virtual) art gallery. I also look forward to the day when you can view these works on person, and more importantly, greet and congratulate the artists who contributed. *Please check our Facebook Page to view the Art Show.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! On Friday, December 18, 2020, we will not be having classes. All teachers and staff will be assisting in our Christmas project. We have gifts, candy bags, and stockings for the students. We want to see our students so we will be distributing the gifts beginning at 10am at the Oglala Service Center parking lot. We are doing this in conjunction with the Oglala District, who will be distributing candy bags and a gift to the children that do not go to school at Isna Wica Owayawa. It is our goal to make sure every child gets something for Christmas. We will have have face masks available for all students and adults. It will be a drive-thru event. Students must pick up their own gifts! Lunch will be Roast Beef with all the fixings! Drivers will be delivering this to your homes. It will be 30 mins later than they usually deliver lunch but it will be there. Please come out to get your meal when the driver honks their horn. If you are unable to pick up your gifts at this time, they will be delivered to your homes on Tuesday, Dec 22nd. On this day, the Eagle Store items that your students ordered will also be delivered. Each family will receive a beef roast for your Christmas dinner at this time also. Each student at Isna Wica Owayawa has a bag with their gifts, a candy bag, and some stockings.
