Attention all families of Native American students in Oklahoma public schools:
As we begin to close out the school year many Indian Education programs will be hosting parent meetings and tribal consultations per federal guidelines. Join us as we talk about what that means and who should be involved! And how to advocate for your student(s) during this important time!
Native American Heritage Month
November is designated as National Native American Heritage Month. In Pryor, approximately 40% of our learners and 38% of our staff are citizens of 26 different Native American tribes from across the United States. As part of Native American Heritage Month, each school has created a display that includes information or items that represent the tribal citizenships of our Native American learners.
Throughout the week of November 16th-20th, Pryor Public Schools will be celebrating the rich traditions and ancestry of our Native American learners with various cultural activities and events on each of our campuses. Please continue reading below for more information and further details about events at each school.
Valentines for Veterans

Sister School: Pryor, Montana
Pryor High School learners will have the opportunity to meet virtually with students from Plenty Coups Jr./Sr. High School in Pryor, Montana, every day during the week of November 16th-20th. During these meetings learners from both schools will share cultural demonstrations of Cherokee and Crow languages and weaving.
Pryor, Montana, was also named after explorer Nathanial Pryor.
