Hey everyone and welcome to November!
Red Ribbon Week Winners:
Huge congrats to Early Childhood’s Mrs. Martha’s room for their winning door on the elementary side, and Mr. Giuseppe’s Jr. High advisory for this door on the Jr. High side! MMA sent out a message that reached (and is still reaching) over thousands of people. When our door decorating contest ended, over four thousand people had seen these doors, they crossed into five countries and six different language barriers! We are so proud of our school and our students for the messages of being drug free that they sent out during red ribbon week! Both winning classes have been contacted about setting up their winning pizza parties and that is in the works.
Thirty Day Gratitude Challenge:
Every day this month on our Facebook page we are challenging you to have an attitude of gratitude! A new photo question will appear for you to answer, share out with your friends and family or ponder to yourself. Try to answer all thirty! Don’t let your gratitude stop with November, carry it with you throughout the rest of the year! It will change your life!
If you are feeling like a mushroom (in the dark and being feed crap) follow us on slack:
This is a great way to get as much or as little information as you want on what’s going on, how to volunteer, and what you can do to be more active in the school and MAPA events. Slack is like Facebook but it’s more of a work space app with different threads on everything that MAPA does so you can know EVERYTHING! It’s a great way to voice opinions, and your ideas if you want to share out ways to make things run smoother! We look forward to hearing from you!
Pizza Pie Cafe:
Every Monday through the month of November Pizza Pie Cafe in North Ogden has been gracious enough to host spirit nights for us! If you get a chance please visit on a Monday and either bring this flyer or mention the Maria Montessori Academy! There is a post on our Facebook you can share as well! What a delicious way to earn money for the school! Yum!
Family Skate Night:
Our family skate night is also coming up fast! Flyers should have gone out for this as well but if you didn’t get one or your child ‘misplaced it’ here is another copy so you can get mad discounts on awesome stuff to do there. Remember admission is free and you can even bring your own skates/scooters from home! Food is discounted which is nice, you can bring the whole family and make a night of it! What an awesome way to spend a Friday night!
Sooooo much going on this month for MAPA!!! This is the one thing that we will defiantly need your help with guys! For those of you that are new, this is a hot lunch where we serve soup and salad to some of our service men and women of the community to say ‘thanks.’ We have other snacks, pies and desserts and it’s a big hit. We usually invite local fire departments, police stations, and other service, and community members such as these. The event will be on track it forward so you can help out by signing up soon. Watch for this later this month!
Gratitude from MAPA:
Guys on behalf of the MAPA board we just want to express some gratitude for you amazing families that have made this such a great year so far!

We feel blessed to belong to such an awesome school with such a wonderful and welcoming presence about it. We are grateful for our admin, teachers, and faculty that make MMA the amazing place that it is! You guys make this happen. MMA rocks!
