    November is National Native American Month!

Bush declared the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month, thereafter commonly referred to as Native American Heritage Month. First sponsor of "American Indian Heritage Month" was through the American Indian Heritage Foundation by the founder Pale Moon Rose, of Cherokee-Seneca descent and an adopted Ojibwa, whose Indian name Win-yan-sa-han-wi "Princess of the Pale Moon" was given to her by Alfred Michael "Chief" Venne

    Maryvale Counseling Department
             (Serving the Maryvale High School Community with Pride!)
    The Maryvale High School Counseling Department is always ready to work diligently for our student's academic, career, emotional and social well-being. Throughout the school year, there will be many opportunities for specific grade levels to receive information about academic criteria needed to graduate from high school and direction for reaching post-secondary goals.

    To see a counselor, students are to visit Ms. Velinda Arollo, our Department Office Assistant, before or after school or during lunch to set up an appointment. At that time, the student will be given the date and time to return to see their counselor.
