Nuts & Bolts

November 5, 2018

Hello November

I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend with loved ones doing what you love. I was able to get away this weekend, which is why this week's N&B are coming out later than usual. Thank you all for your presence at Troy and Molly's services. I know it was late notice and I know the family appreciated our attendance.


Let's have a "normal" week before the holidays are upon us,

Professional Learning and Staff Meeting Today

I apologize that I forgot to include this last night. Attached below you will find our agenda for today's professional learning. We are having a guest presented from USBE. Please bring your computer or other device to easily take a survey.


We will not have a staff meeting today and, instead, extend our professional learning time by 15 minutes to be able to take the Staff Climate Survey. Thanks!

Staffing Updates

As you know from his email, James is no longer employed with MMA. We appreciate his contribution to the school and wish him the best moving forward.

PreSchool Changes

We need to inform you of changes with the preschool program. Going forward, Children’s Garden Montessori will no longer be involved in MMA’s preschool program. In order to provide children with the highest level of education and consistency, MMA will now be handling administrative matters, including the collection of tuition.


For your reference, this letter was sent to preschool parents last week. If you run into individuals who have questions, please refer them directly to me.

Sick & Injured Student Reminders

If students are not feeling well, do not allow students to call their parent/guardians from their cell phones or the classroom phones.


As a reminder, if a you send a child to the office for an injury, you must submit an injury report and contact the students' parent/guardian before the end of the day.

If you are interested in becoming involved in MMA's basketball team, please see Head Coach, Ms. Julia asap.
