The Lakota Middle School 7th Grade Arts Academy received a grant from the Puyallup Tribe’s Charity Fund for $3,000.

This money will pay for 60 students to attend “Lion King the Musical” at the Paramount on April 3. The price for admission and transportation would have been $50.

A portion of the grant will cut that cost in half. This grant will be used to procure cultural speakers, art supplies and books to help build Lakota’s Arts Academy and provide educational opportunities for Lakota as a whole.

The grant was initiated by 7th grade Arts Academy Language Arts and Washington State history teacher Jason Russell.
