Navajo Santa’s Education Initiative program provided funding to Monument Valley High School and Navajo Mountain High School for extracurricular activities. Funding for these two activities was made possible through the generous support of the George S. And Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation grant. 

Monument Valley High School – Field Benches and Equipment

Navajo Santa provided funds to establish a baseball field for Monument Valley High School, a large high school with 590 students, grades 7-12. It took a lot of effort for the student and community volunteers to clear the field, but once ready, the baseball field was put to use for P.E. classes and after-school baseball games. The new field benches and equipment were a welcome addition for the students. The teams now have a place to sit as they watch their games and the proper gear to hit their next home run or catch a soaring flyball.

Navajo Mountain High School Salt Lake City Field Trip

This past spring, Navajo Santa provided funds for 30 Navajo Mountain High School students and chaperones to go on an educational field trip to Salt Lake City. They traveled by bus, stayed in a motel, and visited the Natural History Museum of Utah and the Hansen Planetarium. Plus, of course, a trip to Lagoon Amusement Park. Many of these students had yet to be off the reservation, so this was a very enlightening experience. At the Natural History Museum of Utah, they viewed exhibits representing different indigenous groups, including their own. They learned from the Museum and Planetarium about the larger world they live in.
