MMA Montessori Moments

November 26th, 2018

We are so excited to have our students return tomorrow, Monday, November 26th at 8:30am! We hope all are well rested and ready to work hard before our next break, Winter Break, on 12/24/18. Please remember to send your students in appropriate weather clothing!

Ogden Electric Lights Parade

The float was absolutely beautiful and having the smiling faces of our students made it even better! Thank you to all who endured the cold to support MMA, Troy, and Molly. A big shout out to our Marketing Committee who put this all together! Special thanks goes to Ms. Kaley, Ms. Holly, Ms. Autumn, and the Graves family who built the float.

Parent Education Night

Thursday, Dec. 6th, 5:30-6:30pm

MMA

Mark your calendars for an exciting, educational evening. Our teachers have heard you and understand that you would like more knowledge about what Montessori looks, sounds, and feels like, how it can benefit you and your child, and a better connection to some of its vocabulary. We will host a night with two prime topics being featured: Grace and Courtesy (Communication, Independence, Movement, and Self-Discipline) and The Benefits of Montessori (How it differs from traditional schooling). After a short discussion of the two topics all together in the small gym, we will break out into groups to discuss the two topics. We look forward to seeing you all there! Any questions can be directed to sellis@mariamontessoriacademy.org or jhall@mariamontessoriacademy.org. An RSVP would be greatly appreciated.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Feast of Ages Play

The Junior High theater classes are excited to announce their first play this year, Feast of Ages. Be on the lookout for more information after the break. Tickets will go on sale and can be purchased in the office starting this week. The play will be held at MMA in the large gym on December 12th and 13th. For more information, please contact Ms. Sarah at sdalton@mariamontessoriacademy.org.

Save the Date!

MMA's Winter Musical Concert will be in the evening on December 17th. More details will be coming to your email very soon.

We would love your feedback as change only comes when we know where we can improve. Please take the survey. If you would like to be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card, please take a screenshot of the completed survey and send it to info@mariamontessoriacademy.org.

MAPA Information

MMA Gala

The Gala will be held at Snowbasin on March 23rd from 7:00-9:00pm. To order tickets, please purchase here. Tickets are $32 per person and will not be available for purchase at the door this year. More information regarding the Gala will come soon.

Carpool Safety

The best way we can honor Troy and Molly is to prevent another tragedy. Please drive safely and consciously through carpool and all around our school. Please drive slowly, under the speed limit even, around MMA. Please obey traffic signs and the directions of our volunteer crossing guards. Do not be on your phone. Looking down at the phone on your lap also counts as distracted driving. Please model safe behavior and only cross the road and across the parking lots using the crosswalks. Please only drop children off at the spots designated in the MMA carpool plan and not along any road.


Please drive like the lives of your children and other's depend on it - because it does.

Dropping Off Lunches

If your child forgets their lunch and you drop it off at school for them, please place it on the bottom shelf under the sign-in computer in the lobby. Please ensure that your child's name and teacher is written on it. You can borrow a sticky note from the office to label the item. Our staff will deliver all of these items at once around 11:15am. Thanks for your cooperation!
