Nuts & Bolts
November 26, 2018
I hope everyone recharged their batteries this break and are ready to return to MMA tomorrow morning feeling fresh and ready to conquer the time between now and winter break. My family and I kept active this break doing fun things like - skiing, painting pottery with friends, making Thanksgiving dinner together, attending a baptism, exploring new restaurants, installing an oven (well hopefully that will be complete today), cuddling, decorating for the holidays, hosting out of town friends, cleaning, making messes, and even a movie date night.
MMA was represented well in the Ogden Light Parade. Thank you to the marketing committee for devising the plan and entering our school into the parade. Thank you to Kaley, Holly, and Autumn for constructing the float. This would not have been possible without the Graves family who drove their truck and trailer and played a major part in the float's construction.
Thank you for being a part of MMA and have a great week back,
Room 5 Update
As you know, Jill is no longer at MMA. While we are recruiting a permanent replacement and interviewing, we will have Taylor Monsen as a long-term sub in with April. Lana has been writing lesson plans and presenting lessons. We have the help of the Lower El team during this transition as well, for which we are very thankful.
MMA Holiday Party
This is MAPA's main, major fundraiser for the year; so, please make every effort to attend. Invite your non-MMA friends and make it a big event. For the past two years that I have been here, MAPA has provided MMA with a check for $10,000. I have heard some staff say that the ticket prices are too high. Please remember that your ticket price includes a yummy dinner, entertainment, and a live auction. If you save $11 per month starting in January - you can cover the cost of your ticket.
Thank you for supporting MAPA; they really enjoy seeing teachers at their events.
