As the school year ends I would like to send a special thank you to the
staff, students, and community of the Box Elder Schools. During the
last twelve years I have been a part of a very special educational
family who has accomplished many great accomplishments along that
time. I have been fortunate to have my life touched by the people in
the school and community. Although my part in the educational journey
of Box Elder Schools is coming to an end, the heart and soul of the
school system and community is thriving and building towards a bright
and successful future of building the leaders of tomorrow.
I am not saying goodbye, I will be around and checking on everyone as the our journey move forward. Good Luck and may success and good educating be with you.
Thank for who you are and what you do.
Box Elder School District 13-G is located in Box Elder, Montana in the north central region of Montana. The school facilities were first established in 1929, but in 1963 a fire completely destroyed the original building. The existing main building was constructed in 1965 to house a student population of 161. Today the K-12 enrollment is 389 students. With the increased enrollment over the years, several additions have been made to the main building, the most recent being new elementary classrooms.
The school district resides in a rural community bordering the boundaries of the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation. Rocky Boy is home to the Chippewa Cree tribe with a total tribal enrollment of more than 5,000. The majority of the students at Box Elder School are American Indians, many of whom are members of the Chippewa Cree Tribe.
