Volunteer Honors


In the Grand Coulee Dam Area, The Star Newspaper encourages volunteerism by sponsoring a peer-reviewed campaign to honor one person others have deemed as  especially giving throughout their lives. 



This year the community voices selected our own Nespelem School Board Director,  Jeanne Moon. 

Nominated by Jolene Marchand, another Nespelem Board Director, Jeanne received recognition for her years of giving to the community not only through her forty-three years of school board work, including serving as advisor in Native American History for the Washington State School Directors Association, but also as the “go-to person” for “culture, tradition, religion and education,” says Colleen Leskinen. 

We thank Jeanne Moon for all her community work, and especially, for her continuous support of education at Nespelem School.

Holiday Spirit


Thank you, Mrs. Armstrong-Montes!



For thirty-seven years, Nancy Armstrong-Montes has led the Nespelem School students in music and spirit for assemblies and especially for the Christmas program. Her piano and guitar accompaniment guides our voices in celebration of the holidays, providing us with joyful learning.









At the Christmas Program on Tuesday, December 20th, 2011, Nancy was honored for her years of service in not just music, but also in teaching by our Nespelem School Board of Directors, The Colville Tribes, and The Parent Education Committee. As Mary Richardson stated, “She treated everyone fairly.”
Finally, Mrs Montes asked all her previous and current students to take the stage to join in singing “Little Drummer Boy,” a song she has taught all her students to sing.




We thank Mrs. Armstrong-Montes for lifting our knowledge and our spirits.
