Adopt An Elder’s 29th Annual NAVAJO RUG SHOW & SALE


Grandmother Anita Jackson Approximately 25  years ago, because of Bob and Robyn’s strong connection to some Navajo friends, our school registered with the Adopt A Native Elder program to adopt three Navajo grandmothers and two grandfathers. Our two grandfathers died a few years into our involvement with the program and then for most of 20 years we continued to help support our three grandmothers - Grandmother Emma Bahe, Grandmother Roseline Jackson and Grandmother Elvira Horseherder. For many years we have been so successful with our fundraising that we were not only able to  provide food on each of the two Food Runs that originate in Park City but also send yarn, gift certificates for them to buy additional food, clothing and household items, firewood, basic medical supplies and blankets but in the past few years two of our Grandmothers - Emma (aged 94) and Roseline (aged 92) have died and we...

If salvation and help are to come, it is from the child, for the child is the constructor of man and so of society. The child is endowed with an inner power which can guide us to a more enlightened future. —Maria Montessori The heart of our Service Learning curriculum at Montessori Community School is Maria Montessori’s mandate to empower children to become agents of change, and our personal mission to create global citizens.

  For the 2014 - 2015 school year Montessori Community School is excited to work with our students in a Service-Learning project to once again support our COEEF girls and our Grandmothers through the Adopt-A-Native Elder program. MCS has supported COEEF for more than seven years and the Native American Grandmothers of Adopt-A-Native Elder for over 20 years! We are happy to report that our girls in Ethiopia and our Native American Grandmothers are very grateful for the continued support from the MCS community of families and friends over the years.   In an effort to raise awareness about family preparedness, this year MCS is offering 72-  hour kits as a fundraiser to replace the Fun Run that has been “running” for the past several years.   Packets containing further information and order forms were sent home in every student's Take-Home File. Please share this information with your families and friends so they too, can be...
