Due to circumstances out of our control, we have had to close our On-Site School for children in grades first through fifth grade. At this time, we do not know when or if we will re-open in another school year. This area will now be our Education Center.
While we are disappointed that we will not have a school program this year, we are excited about new opportunities to use the classroom space this year as an Education Center. We are likely going to use the space during the week for after-school tutoring, arts and crafts, music, computer learning and more. Nina Benally will also teach a Navajo Culture Class for students.
When children arrive at Navajo Ministries, they have already experienced many life-changing events in addition to a new home. New “parents,” new “siblings,” and new friends are just a few of the many people they have to adjust to when they arrive. They need more one-on-one educational care than they can receive at a normal school.
We will still accept Box Tops For Education – we will be sending these to the schools that our children attend at this time. We will no longer be accepting Campbell’s Labels for Education, as Campbell’s has discontinued this program.
