MMA Montessori Moments
October 29th, 2018
We are . . . MMA <3
Thank you for the outpouring support from our families and community during this difficult time. We laughed, we cried, we ran, we studied, and, we came together as one. We have some of the best families in the valley. Troy and Molly Cox will be deeply missed.
If you are interested in helping the Cox family, an account has been established at America First Credit Union in the name of Troy and Molly Cox to help with funeral expenses. If you would like to contribute to this fund, go into an America First Credit Union and mention this account.
I want to let you all know about the beautiful comments and actions of support from our community. Our board of directors have expressed heartfelt condolences and have asked how they can help. You have seen the ribbon display organized by MAPA. Academica West employees organized the crisis team of counselors. A school counselor from Ogden Preparatory Academy volunteered her services for the day. The 801 Rocks group painted and displayed rocks for our students to find and cherish. Students from Highland Junior High sent notes of condolences, which are displayed in the Commons Area. Leadership Learning Academy has offered the assistance of their paras if our staff would like to attend funeral services.
The Cross Country team ran on Friday in memory of Troy. It was good to see Michael Cox there and smiling, despite his pain. Thank you, Hyrum and Julia, for making this opportunity possible.
Our Montessori community came out in force. Former MMA directors, Ms. Nancy and Ms. Stephanie, came to offer condolences in person. The Utah Montessori Council sent beautiful flowers. Elizabeth Academy, a Montessori School in SLC, sent us the poster of condolences displayed out front. Walden School of Liberal Arts, a Montessori school down south and Montessori Community School of Salt Lake City, emailed compassionate messages of support.
We feel your love and your light and thank you for all that you have done for MMA. As we know, this pain does not subside instantaneously. Please look for signs of distress in your children and neighbors, both subtle and obvious, and reach out to us for support.
