Welcome to the new blog

Hey everyone welcome to the new blog! Due to recent concerns about communication we have decided to pick up the old blog again and start putting out communications. Feel free to keep tabs on us here, our fb page (at: https://www.facebook.com/NorthOgdenMAPA), or both if you wish.Thanks everyone!

MMA rocks!

The End Is Near…

We want to thank you so much for all of the help we have received this year.  Our volunteers make our events possible, and we have had some great people with some big hearts.                                                                                                                               “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”                               We have a few more events to wrap things up, so please help out where you can.

Teacher Appreciation Week May 13-17
Please join us in honoring our school staff and faculty this week. Here is a wonderful guide for the week. We delayed our appreciation week from the national week since a lot of MMA faculty were out this past week for the Redwoods and Crow Canyon.

Calling all party planners & artists!!

Come join us Friday Nov. 16, 2018 at 8:45 am in the Conference room to get the ball rolling on our plans for this years Gala.  We could use volunteers to help with the final stages of planning and definitely need volunteers to help with getting children’s art ready for the big day.  HINT HINT…you don’t need to be an artist!  Nearly every grade could use a helper to shuffle kids around as we get the piece created!

If you would like to be involved but can not make the meeting we completely understand, please contact us at mapa@mariamontessoriacademy.org

Gratitude Feast

We will be holding the school’s Gratitude Feast this Thursday November 15 in the “big gym”.  If you are new to our school the Gratitude Feast is a time when we invite community members that have helped our school be successful to come and have lunch.  If you are interested in helping by providing food, or by helping serve, please use the track it forward link below.  Remember that time spent buying and preparing food counts toward your 40 volunteer hours!

Thank you so much to all of our volunteers who come out and help our school!  Your efforts are appreciated and help so much to build the community we have here at MMA.
