The Elementary Chinuk Language Program provides Chinuk lessons to students in grades Kindergarten through 5th. We offer a ½ day Immersion Kindergarten/first grade classroom which follows all Oregon State Education Standards and also teaches our culture and place-based curriculum. The students in this program attend the local public elementary school in the mornings and are then transported to our school for the afternoon immersion lessons. Our Elementary Chinuk Language Program also teaches lessons in the K-5 after school and summer programs. For more information, please contact either Ali Holsclaw at (503) 879-1490 or Esther Stewart at (503)879-1443.
