Sixth Grade – STARBASE – Highly Important

Dear Sixth Grade Families,
Our sixth grade students have the unique opportunity to attend STARBASE on Hill Air Force Base.  This is a wonderful STEM program offered to very few schools in Northern Utah.  The permission slip has already been sent home and returned to school by each family, thank you.  This is a five day field trip one day a week for five weeks.  The dates for this wonderful experience are:
Monday January 7, 2019
Tuesday January 15, 2019
Wednesday January 23, 2019
Wednesday January 30, 2019
Wednesday February 6, 2019
It is your responsibility as parents to get your child to and from STARBASE on each of the dates listed above.  I encourage you to carpool with each other.  I would like permission from each family to send out a list of the sixth grade parents e-mail addresses to each of you so you can coordinate rides.  Please let me know as soon as possible if you do not want me to share your e-mail address with the other sixth grade families.
STARBASE is on Hill Air Force Base; we have a few plans to get your students on base.  Other schools hire a bus to get them to and from STARBASE.  A bus costs $500.00 a day so that is not an option for us.
Our first plan is to meet at The Aerospace Museum and STARBASE will send a Hill Air Force Base bus to come pick us up and transport us to and from STARBASE.  The information for this plan is located here. Roy-Gate-Base-Bus   One last thing, I can not press upon you enough not to be late dropping off or picking up. The use of the base bus is a courtesy that has been extended to STARBASE and we do not want to keep them waiting; especially if they have other routes.
The second plan, if  Hill Air Force Base cannot come get us, is to have parents transport their child onto base.  In order for anyone to get onto base they need to provide some information.  Please fill out this form with the appropriate information if you think there is any possibility you might drive to or from this field trip one of the days.  TRANSPORTATION-FOR-BASE-ACCESS-18  STARBASE needs this information by December 20th.  Please get this information to me (although the form states otherwise)  as soon as possible.
Once this information is turned over to security forces we will not be able to add any drivers.  If you think there is a small chance you may drive your child then please fill out this form.  These are the instructions for getting to the South Gate.  South-Gate-Contingency-Plan-18
If you have any questions please let me know.
Ms. Amity

Parent Education Night – Dec. 6

Mark your calendars for an exciting, educational evening next Wednesday, December 6 from 5:30-6:30.
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 build 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)
  • The Benefits of Montessori (how it differs from traditional schooling).

After a short introduction together in the small gym, we will break out into groups to discuss the two topics.

Any questions can be directed to or

Ogden Electric Light 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 you get must ride in the trailer or truck. If you are over the age of 12 then you may walk next to the float. Students who ride or walk will be carrying white peace signs or holding tea lights.

If your child would like to be a part of the parade then we will have waivers to sign in front of the temple.

The parade starts on 22nd and Washington and then ends at 27th. My advice would be for 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.

If you have any questions you can contact Autumn in the office or Ms. Kaley

Cultural Festival – Home Project

During this season of abundance, it’s important to remain grateful for the things we have.  I want to express my gratitude to the families in our class and the support you give your children each day!

Our next home project is due Thursday, November 15 with the cultural festival taking place Friday, November 16 from 1:00-3:00.  Families are invited to join us during that time to tour the projects with your children.   Each child will have a scheduled time to tour other projects which will be determined later this week.  If you would like to see walk with your child through the school, please watch for their scheduled time.

I am attaching the expectations and rubric for the home project.  This was sent home with your child several weeks ago when they selected their time period.

I look forward to ending this week with your child’s beautiful projects!
