Red Lake Elementary School (RLES) and the Early Childhood Center (ECC) is an indescribably amazing and important place! Within these two buildings, over 700 precious young lives spend a good portion of their day! With that in mind, it is very, very important that your child loves school! Truly, there is very little that is more essential than for a young person to have a rich and enjoyable school experience.

Every one of our students has wonderful hopes and dreams and deserves a school experience and environment where they feel the respect and appreciation and care of staff and fellow classmates while they learn and grow!
We look forward to a great year! The Red Lake Elementary School and Early Childhood Center continues to emphasize and implement Responsive Classroom (RC) principles and practices. RC provides a structure for us that promotes a school environment that is challenging and safe, and where kindness and respect for one another are paramount in importance.
Our theme for 2017-2018 at the RLES is “Heroes in Training!” We like this theme very much as we can emphasize all year that we are heroes to our classmates when we help them with their school work, when we are a buddy to them when they are down, when we help them to behave, when we are kind and thoughtful, and when we are not a bystander in a bully situation. The opportunities for us to be heroic every day are endless!
Our web site is constantly changing. We try to keep it current with pictures, newsletters and educational links. This can be a challenge as the school days can be so busy! However, we are trying!
Support Services Include:
Community Education

Community Education at the Red Lake School District #38 provides a Holistic Approach to educational based programming, activities and events. The best interest of the reservation community includes finding ways to utilize the funding which will be inclusive of residents of all ages.

Community Education Youth Leadership

The Leadership portion of Community Education gives students the opportunity to develop skills which will apply to life skills. This includes time management, cooperation in groups, volunteering for projects which enhance the reservation community, job skills and a connection to education through good school attendance.
Students are recruited to assist with the projects that Comedu offers such as the Teen Health Fair, Comprehensive Health Fair, sports events, educational camps, field trips, concessions at the Red Lake High School and collaborative efforts with other programs.

Youth Enrichment

The theory of Best Practice in the educational system means that students are able to learn and enrich their horizons by hands on learning. Along with hands on learning we recognize that Native youth have certain learning styles. As each student has a learning style which may be different, acknowledging and honoring the child and youth enriches their perspective of the educational system. Collaborations with Targeted Services, Home School Liaisons, Comprehensive Health,Chemical Health, Indian Health Services,Oshkiimaajitadah and other programs gives Community Education the ability to provide services to students.
Enrichment projects are also Cultural based, Native American, primarily  Ojibwe. There have been several films made by students along with drum making, beading, craft designs. Youth have been encouraged in projects such as Targeted
Service to increase knowledge through hands on learning.

Kloster Park

Kloster Park is a summer baseball/softball program based in Clearbrook, Mn. Both boys and girls 9-13 years of age are eligible to attend. This give students one day per week for eight weeks to meet other youth from the surrounding area. There is
a World Series at Clearbrook which brings together families and numerous communities.
Students who have participated at Kloster Park are eligible to become coaches and/or umpires when they turn fifteen. This is a great opportunity for youth to use this coaching time on their resumes.

Teen Health Fair

Each year on the first Friday of November, Community Education along with numbers of partnerships/collaborators hold a Teen Health Fair at the Red Lake High School.
The Teen Health Fair, an annual event hosts a Holistic approach
to student’s cultural  background. There is a host drum which is in the middle of the gym and a variety of disciplines.
Indian Health Services, Comprehensive Health Services, Evergreen House, Chemical Health, Early Childhood Family Education, Red Lake Tribal College, massage therapy, biofeedback, herbal therapy, aroma therapy, diabetes information and numbers of other booths are available as resources and education for students.

Parents As Teachers

Community Education is a partner with the Parents As Teachers program. Parents As Teachers is a curriculum that gives parents the opportunity to learn about being their children’s first teachers. The classes are geared for Early Childhood but can be used for children of any age.
Classes are offered at the Early Childhood center at Red Lake and at Oshkimaajiitahdaa.


Community Education has hosted numbers of workshops with themes on Parent Education, Prevention of birth  defects, prevention of fetal alcohol syndrome, Parents As Teachers and other  related  topics. It is the intention of the Red Lake School district  to provide  educational outreach for the families and reservation community.

55 and over Insurance classes

It is our intention to hold the 55+ classes each year. There are the regular classes and the renewal classes. We have not been able to secure an instructor this past year but are working to continue this service.

Crafts Classes

Crafts classes are held in Ponemah at the Boy’s and Girl’s club. The classes are for adults but the environment at the club helps so that participants can bring children who can then have their own activities. Classes will be blanket making, pillow making and other crafts. Christmas there is cookie making and an assortment of fun give away presents. LIVIT
Community Education is a partner with the Department of Indian Works, Minneapolis which has provided  us with a curriculum to teach Sexual Health. Workshops are offered  in the Red Lake High School and Oshiimaajitahdaa.

The Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, comprised of the Bois Forte, Fond du Lac, Grand Portage, Leech Lake, Mille Lacs, and White Earth reservations, is a federally recognized tribal government that, through unified leadership, promotes and protects the member Bands while providing quality services and technical assistance to the reservation governments and tribal people.

Who We Are
The Preamble to the Constitution of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe sets forth the purposes, aspirations, and goals of the union of the six member reservations. The Preamble states that the six member reservations of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe come together, “in order to form a representative Chippewa Tribal organization, maintain and establish justice for our Tribe and to conserve and develop our Tribal resources and common property; and to promote the general welfare of ourselves and descendants.” It is toward these ideals that the Tribe continually strives, and it is for these reasons that the Tribe exists. Tribal political action and the administration of programs and services are intended to help meet these goals. Four divisions work to ensure that programs operated by the Tribe are effective and efficient in the delivery of services to our membership. Tribal divisions include Administration, Education, Finance, and Human Services.
