On April 18, St Michaels School for Special Education will be hosting its high school prom. This year's theme is "A Night in the West" and the students are really looking forward to the big event. St. Michaels is a school for Navajo children and adults with special needs – many are severely disabled. The school is located about four hours from Telluride, on the Navajo Reservation in St. Michaels, Ariz.
St. Michaels is a nonprofit school and whatever funding they receive must be used for day-to- day expenses and the running of the school. Prom does not fit into this category. Life can be difficult for the students at St. Michaels School. Many of them are sick and have daily struggles. Approximately half are in wheelchairs. Prom is a BIG deal to these students and they look forward to it all year – the joy that Prom brings is immeasurable.
The people of Telluride have become prom sponsors and have sponsored prom since it's inception, seven years ago. If it weren't for the kindness of our community, there would be no Prom. If you would like to help, checks can be made payable to: St. Michaels Association For Special Ed. Please write "Prom" in the memo notation space. Please send checks to: Flair Robinson, P.O. Box 1993, Telluride, CO 81435.
Please include your address, so that we can send you a thank you!
