National Indigenous Peoples Day looked a little different in Tyendinaga this year. Instead of our usual celebration in Tsi Tkeritoten Park most of the events moved online to Facebook. View the schedule of events and newsletter here.

A number of participants braved the heat to complete the 5K Virtual Fun Run and 19 cars joined TTO staff and Board members, Tyendinaga Police Services and the Mohawk Fire Department in a car parade from Centennial Park, through the subdivision to Tsi Tkeritoten Park.

Staying Connected – May 19, 2020

Greg and Lisa Sexsmith generously donated a class set of tablets to the students at Kawenna’ón:we Primary School. The tablets will be used to support students with distance learning and help them stay connected to their teachers and classmates.

Supporting Our Students and Families – March 31, 2020

During this challenging time, TTO is working to ensure that our students and their families have everything they need to stay safe, healthy and engaged. With so much uncertainty in the world it’s more important than ever for us to take care of each other.

With funding from our partners at the First Nations Student Nutrition Program and Food For Learning, we are able to provide families with grocery gift cards to supplement their budgets until the end of the school year. Our teachers are also busy producing online learning supports and preparing activity packages to send to students so they can keep learning from a distance.
