Thanksgiving Week

Nixyaawii WILL have school all day Monday, November 24 and Tuesday, November 25.  Other schools in the Pendleton School District do not have school on Tuesday, but we do!  Have a pleasant Thanksgiving holiday.  School will resume as usual on Monday, December 1.


We are Nixyaawii Community School.  Proud to be the Golden Eagles.

Our school is a charter of the Pendleton School district and we are located on the beautiful Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in northeast Oregon. Our charter focuses on Native American culture, infusing native languages into daily school life, and serving the tribal community. 

Here's what's happening...

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Nixyaawii Community School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year! The start of the school year is always exciting, but this year there are some important changes at NCS designed to better prepare your child for future success and I wanted to take a minute to explain them.
