A thankful message from Ms. Lana and Ms. René
As we enter into our Thanksgiving break and take the time to reflect, we wanted to share some of the things we are grateful for. Our school is lucky to have incredible individuals who come together to make it great. We are thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn. They remind us each day of why we, and our teachers, are in this profession. We are thankful for the teachers, assistants, instructional coach, school counselor, special education coordinator, office staff, support staff, Board of Directors, founders, MAPA, and therapists who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school and have the best interests of our students at heart. We are thankful for our community members who have been there for us in times of need.
Above all, we are thankful for you, our parents, who trust us with your most valuable possessions. You continue to work hard and advocate to be a partner in your children’s education, safety and well-being. For this, we are so very thankful.
We would like to wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving break.
Ms. Lana and Ms. René

Ogden Electric Lights Parade
November 24th is the annual Ogden Electric Lights Parade. Our school will be represented and the marketing committee has come up with a float that will represent MMA.
We are looking for students from MMA who would like to be part of our parade! The meeting place will be in front of the Ogden Temple. The parade starts promptly at 5:30pm. The floats will be lined up at 5pm.
Students 12 years and younger must ride in the trailer or truck. If your student is over the age of 12, then they may walk next to the float. Students who ride or walk will be carrying white peace signs or holding tea lights. All students will need to sign up to participate. Waivers will need to be signed at our meeting place, the Ogden temple.
The parade starts on 22nd and Washington and then ends at 27th. The marketing committee advises our MMA parents whose child(ren) are in the parade park towards the end of the parade so when we are done you can find your child.
We have some, but if your child would like to wear glow necklaces and bracelets during the parade we highly suggest the more the better! (It is a light parade!) the glow wear is also our symbol to honor Troy and Molly Cox.
