COVID impacts on our Navajo Elders


The Navajo Nation was struck hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with one of the highest per capita infection rates in the country earlier this year. Disparities in access to health care and infrastructure, high rates of chronic health conditions, and multigenerational homes increase the risk for virus spread and complications.Native elders depend on firewood for cooking and staying warm in the winter. Each load donated lasts a family 3-6 weeks. Many of the elders live in remote locations and are experiencing grocery shortages on the reservation, amplified by the pandemic. MCS supports two elders, Grandmothers Anita Jackson and Elvira Horseherder, by providing food boxes, food certificates, firewood, and other supplies such as yarn and medical supplies through Adopt a Native Elder. The Annual Fun Run is our main fundraising effort, and this fall our support is especially vital to the elders’ health and survival.Stay tuned for information coming soon about this...

Each year, the students of MCS celebrate the International Day of Peace with our Silent Peace Walk. The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on the 21st of September. It is dedicated to world peace and specifically the absence of war and violence. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, an obvious key beginning to peace for our world's future. To inaugurate the day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at UN Headquarters in New York City. The bell is cast from coins donated by children from around the world, and was a gift from the United Nations Association of Japan. There is an inscription on the side of the bell...

This year in our new roles of school directors the love and energy is no different. 2020 has already presented many challenges and, while we do not know what the future has in store, we are so happy to see our parents, students and staff showing great resiliency and adaptability in this unique time.

We have installed flags to help those who are already crossing the street. As our school community is parking out front and on streets across from the front entrance, we encourage our families to utilize these flags and be vigilant about watching for students crossing this portion of road and then through our parking lot in the back to get to the other various schools in the immediate area. Especially as the weather warms, we will see more students walking, scootering, and biking to school.
