Crow Canyon to Host Children’s Kiva Montessori School During School’s Renovation


Quality education and positive student outcomes are not only vital to the long-term success of our community—they are a pillar of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center’s mission.

That is why Crow Canyon is pleased to be hosting the Cortez’s Children’s Kiva Montessori School (CKMS) on the Center’s campus while the school’s facilities are made safe for students and faculty during what has become a challenging renovation process.

“We were delighted to have the CKMS teachers and students on Crow Canyon’s campus earlier this year, and it is a pleasure to welcome them back,” said Dr. Elizabeth Perry, President and CEO of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. “It is inspiring for all of us at Crow Canyon to see the dedicated and talented CKMS teachers working with students all around our campus – they have such creative instincts for use of space and landscape in their teaching.” 

Crow Canyon will be donating educational space for approximately 90 CKMS students and their teachers over the next several months. The winter months are typically a quiet time on Crow Canyon’s 170-acre campus located just west of downtown Cortez, enabling the Center to offer classroom space and other facilities to the school.

Crow Canyon is working with CKMS leadership to help ensure that students are able to have as much uninterrupted classroom time as possible.

“The CKMS is a valuable asset to our community, and all of us at Crow Canyon are happy to be able to offer a safe campus to the school through this very challenging time,” said Crow Canyon Board of Trustees Chairman Ricky Lightfoot. “Crow Canyon is pleased to offer a helping hand.”
