Thank you for your love, understanding, and support as our community found out about the tragic death of one of our junior high students on Wednesday. The information about his arrangements is listed below in case your family would like to attend. I am currently working out a plan so all teachers who would like to attend the funeral services on Wednesday morning can attend and we can still have school in session. Ryder was literally MMA family as his brother works as a teaching assistant at MMA and Ms. Andrea's daughter is married to Ryder's other brother.
I expect all junior high teachers to attend services on Wednesday, so any junior high students in school during that time will be paired with an elementary class to mentor for about two hours before our normally scheduled early dismissal.
Please email René asap if your background check is on file with MMA and you are interested in volunteering in classrooms Wednesday from 10am until 1pm.
Thank you for your patience and understanding on Monday when we had to dismiss school a few hours early because our fire alarms were malfunctioning. As an update, our building was safe the entire time and the issue has been resolved.
Please remember that there is no school for students this Friday and then we will have the next two weeks off for winter break. Have a safe and joy-filled winter break!
Create an Aspire Account
All families must create an Aspire account by this Friday. The Aspire account is required to re-register and confirm that your child to attend MMA next year. Beginning after winter break on January 6th, families will be required to confirm their registration for next year to hold their spot at MMA.
Please create a family account now! Instructions to create an Aspire account can be found here. You will need your child's SSID. If you do not know this number, please call the front office at 801-827-0150. We cannot email this private information out. Thank you for your cooperation!
