Much misunderstanding and lack of available funding in the small district contributed to the problems. Students leaving the school and entering Junior High in Shelton generally experienced difficulty academically and were not likely to complete high school. This still is a major problem. "An active JOM committee was formed last year, but was unable to obtain sufficient JOM funds and programs for any appreciable success. The current year found almost a complete turnover in school faculty. Difficulties arose at the start of the year with supplies arriving late and lack of continuity in the administration. At the present time the administration is functioning smoothly and planned JOM programs are being put into operation. "A detailed visit to the school was not accomplished due to time limitations. Generally the climate was good. "The teachers aides have won praise from school faculty, school board and tribal people for their efforts in working with the children. The Kindergarten program was operating smoothly and seemed to be a well-structured program. Local persons present were obviously proud of what has been accomplished this year. Communications between tribe, school and community have increased tremendously. While much more can be accomplished at Kamilche, the school board member stated this was the most parental involvement and community involvement he had ever seen in the school. There was no doubt on the part of any of the persons present that the JOM program was working effectively, contributing much to the education of Indian youngsters at Kamilche. "If no funds were available there is no question there would be a decline in the effectiveness of the school program at Kamilche. JOM is providing assistance for programs that would no} otherwise exist. The present high interest and involvement of parents and community in the school would not continue. It is likely the stimulation of interest in education for adults as well as children would decrease. Lessened attendance of adults at GED (16) part of Canada is still cold and bare they are enjoying the sunshine and the beautiful green scenery. Well folks, the carnival at the Pioneer school May 1 was a huge success, the work and efforts put forth by the students was outstanding and we all commend you for everything you did in helping to raise this much needed funds. A big thank you to the faculty and parents as well as friends for their work and effort in getting the donations which made this carnival a success.

They would suffer from the lack of teacher aides, materials and transportation. Parental involvement which plays a most important role in the success of education of youngsters would most certainly revert back to the previous condition. "However if more JOM funds were available more teacher aides could be employed and better facilities, transportation, materials and supplies would be available for the Indian students. Greater parental su'pport as well as community involvement would result. Commenting on the report, principal Johann Mak states, "If the community will get involved and cooperate even more than it did this year, I am convinced, that we: Mrs. Haley, Miss Anderson, Mrs. Hopp, Mrs. Krise, Mrs. Ivans, and I can do an even better job for the benefit of our students. not be a place, where the faculty decide how to behave, thou shalt not.., etc., where we decide to make out of individuals copies of ourselves, but a place, where they (while growing up) are educated by human-beings to become personalities, with a self-image and an ability to educate themselves. "The school~ being a place where many children are, should be a place where many parents come, to assist with the education of their own children.
