Thank you for supporting our school!


MAPA General Meeting is tomorrow!

Don’t forget, our meeting is tomorrow at 6:00 and it is pot luck. Those with last names beginning with: A-H bring dessert, I-Q: main dish, R-Z side dish/salad. It looks like the meeting will be held in the gym as rain is forecasted for tomorrow. You may still want to bring something to sit on. We’ll have tables set up for the food buffet. We plan on having everyone making their plate before the meeting and we will conduct business while you are eating.

The meeting itself will be short. Ms. Stephanie has some materials to hand out to families. MAPA will have a handout that will contain our brief meeting agenda and budget on which we need to vote. You’ll be introduced to key members of MAPA, too.

Academica West will be there to conduct fingerprinting for background checks. These background checks are needed in order to be a driver for field trips for the school. The wejoinin signup is now full. If you are still interested in having this done, please contact the front office.

There will also be a table set up with a couple of laptops either in the hallway or library. These laptops will contain a power point presentation with a full description of what MAPA is, what we do, our annual goals, our fundraisers, and how we plan to achieve our goals. A member of the MAPA board will be there to answer any questions you have. This is a great opportunity for new families to have a sit down and see what all we do for the school.

Thank you all for your support, and we look forward to seeing you and your children tomorrow evening!

MAPA General Meeting

Hi all,

The MAPA General Meeting is just around the corner, to be held on September 25th, 6-8 in the evening. It is a pot luck and is a family-friendly event. The food assignments are: A-H: dessert, I-Q: main dish, R-Z: salad or side dish. Bring a blanket to sit on or chairs as this event will be outdoors, weather permitting. Academica West will be onsite to fingerprint for background checks.  These checks are for folks interested in being field trip drivers. The cost is $60 for a six year period. Please consider doing this as we are in need of drivers and this is a fun way to fulfill your 40 volunteer hours.

The agenda for the meeting is still being worked out, but plan on a brief meeting with handouts for you to take home and look over at your leisure. This evening is going to be a great time to socialize and get to know your MAPA Officers and Committee Chairs.

Hope to see you there!

A Reminder from the Safety Committee

Dear Parents,

Just a friendly reminder about the drop off/ pick up procedure.  If you do not wish to enter the school parking lot,  you may drop your student off across the street in the pool parking lot, and the crossing guards will help them cross the street.  Please do not stop or park in the red zones.  It creates a blind spot and other drivers cannot see the children crossing.  We worked closely with North Ogden Police Department in creating these zones because your child’s safety is our number one concern. N.O.P.D. patrols the area frequently and we would hate for anyone to be ticketed.

Also, please be courteous to our crossing guards. We have some great staff and parent volunteers who are there every morning to ensure our kids arrive safely.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
