Phrase of the Week


In efforts to support Anishinaabemowin in our schools – We have launched a new program to be practiced throughout our classes and daily life here in GaagageKiizhik and Bimose Community High School.  It is our hope that by implementing the Phrase of the Week within our school will help all our students and staff come together as one when communicating.
