Be the Light Sisseton

#BETHELIGHTSISSETON -- A Sisseton community member and teacher had the great idea of turning on the lights at the main baseball field at the Sisseton Baseball Complex every Friday as a symbol of hope and togetherness for our community. The lights will be kept on each week for 1 minute representing each day that students have not been in school. The next “event” will be this Friday, April 24 starting at 8:20 p.m. The time was picked to show support for the graduating class of 2020. We encourage community members to drive by or pull into the parking lot to stop and take a picture. On May 15, the last scheduled week of school, the lights will be kept on for 1 minute representing each senior that will be graduating from Sisseton High School and Tiospa Zina Tribal School. Here is a layout of how long the lights will stay on each week: April 24 - 30 minutes (8:20 - 8:50 p.m.); May 1: 35 minutes (8:20 - 8:55 p.m.); May 15: approximately 70 minutes. ~Courtesy Photo
