our ways staff and room

Because “culture is the heart of our school,”  Indian Community School has a dedicated Our Ways room and staff who ensure that Native language and culture is a part of everything we do here at our school.  Our Ways staff assist in the integration of culture and academics; they coordinate cultural events and programming and they serve as cultural resources for students, staff and the community.  The Our Ways room often serves as a gathering place for students, families, staff and cultural guests. Community members are encouraged to contact the Our Ways Director or Coordinator with questions or to arrange a visit. For more information, please contact: mpowless@ics-edu.org or auwilliams@ics-edu.org or, you can call the Our Ways Room at 414-525-6144.
