New Student Application

Clear Form

Kuwnee puyômuw (Welcome) to Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq!

Our mission at Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq is to "prepare students ages 3-9 for academic excellence and community leadership by instilling traditional Wampanoag values through Wôpanâak language immersion and culture-based education for decolonization using a Montessori pedagogy.

“Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq students are immersed in Wampanoag language and culture in a safe, healthy, and loving environment, with the goal of fostering academic excellence, leadership skills, and a strong sense of personal, community, and cultural pride.”

Our school relies heavily on family and community involvement. Parents are asked to contribute to many aspects of our school in support of their children by attending language classes, attending meetings and events, bringing snacks, volunteering time, making donations, and lending expertise, to name some ways families have helped in the past. We also expect that all our families will uphold Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq values: quhshuhkôtam8ôk (respect), sôpwânuqus8ôk (honesty), kutumôtyânutam8ôk (compassion), ahâpâôk (humility), wut8ânutam8ôk (bravery), and tâputôtam8ôk (gratitude).

This form is the first step to enrolling your child in either Mukayuhsak Weekuw (The Children’s House, Primary classroom for ages 2.9-6) or Wushkeenune8ak Weekuw (Lower Elementary classroom for ages 6-9).

Please submit this form online or in person to Head of School, Nitana Hicks Greendeer. If you have questions about the application and enrollment process, please call or email Nitana at 508-477-0208 x168, or ngreendeer@wlrp.org.
