Field Trip Tomorrow


I’m sending a reminder that we will be going on our field trip tomorrow. Please make sure your child is on time. We will be leaving at 8:30am to catch the UTA bus. Have your child bring a sack lunch. They are welcome to bring a backpack and bring a water bottle. Have your child wear good walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

Thank you,

Ms. Holly

Spring Choir Concert

Spring Choir Concert

We are so excited to present to you the MMA Spring Choir Concert!  All of the students at MMA, 1st-6th level are performing at the MMA Gym on April 27th.  Mark your calendars!  It is not required that they come but highly encouraged.  All family members are invited to attend!   Kindergartners can stand up with the children, but I have not rehearsed these particular songs with them.   We have been working so hard to put this show on for you.  We’re going to have a great time!


Because the student body is so large we need to separate the school by last name to perform at different times:

All the students whose last name begins with M-Z will perform at 6 o’clock and need to arrive by 5:50pm to get into their places.

All the students whose last name begins with A-L perform at 7 o’clock and need to arrive at 6:50 to get into place.

This is slightly different from last year.  The honor choir will  also need to come at 5:45 and stay till 8pm for both performances.


The concert only lasts about 35 minutes.  Please only come to your allotted time.  If you have multiple children with different last names with different scheduled times please just choose one to attend.   There is not room to stay to see the other performance.  There are a lot of people that need to fit into the gym.  Please be mindful of the limits on space.  These performances are packed!  Strollers, or extra space takers are encouraged to be left home if possible.  The children will need to line up on the wall, therefore, we will request that the side walls be free from those that would like to stand.  Please stand in the back and not on the sides.   Please exit the performance quickly out the south gym doors to make room for the others that are coming in for the next performance. There will be signs indicating the flow of traffic.


Because this is a concert, I am requesting best dress for the performers. The attire does not have to be according to the schools dress code, just appropriate for the occasion.  You could dress them in beautiful dresses with covered shoulders and tights or leggings, or collared button up shirts with neck ties and slacks, or the cleanest and best clothes you have.    No costumes please.  This makes it a really special event!



The MMA Art show is being displayed in the Library that same night!  After your student performs, your family can gather in the library to view the art from the school.  There will be light refreshments!


If you have any questions about the concert you are welcome to email me at:    If you have any questions about the art show you are welcome to email Mrs. Trudy at:


We are looking forward to performing for you.  We hope we will see you there!


Thank You for the wonderful experience of teaching your children music!

Field Trip Permission Slip: Disney Earth Day film “Born in China”

Hello Parents,

We have the opportunity to join another class for the Disney Earth Day film “Born in China.” Thank you for all the parents that have donated money for field trips. We are able to use that money plus money other teachers donated from their field trip account to cover the cost of the $5.50 ticket. This will be a free field trip for your child to attend. We have wrist bands for each child to ride the UTA bus. Make sure your child is at school at or before 8:30 a.m. on this day. We will be lining up and getting ready to walk at 8:30 a.m. to the bus stop. We are asking that you send your child with a disposable sack lunch to make it easier to keep track of their things. We do not have seating available for parents to attend.

I will send home a yellow permission slip with your child today. Please sign and get it back to me asap.

Thank you,

Ms. Holly
