Hello MMA Families!
Our third week of school saw students continuing with normalization as well as working on graded assignments. Your child should know the difference between a formative and a summative assignment, and how that affects their grades. There is a great amount of learning taking place in the classrooms, from tending to the chickens in Erdkinder to conducting experiments in science. They also received their planners to help keep them organized and on top of the varying due dates in their class. Each advisory has gone over how to use their planners.
Another way for students to stay organized is by having all of their needed class supplies. This is different from upper elementary in that they keep for themselves what they bring. Many of our students have not yet brought in supplies, and they are often leaving assignments in their lockers or crumpling them up in their backpacks. Supply lists have been handed out, please check with your students to see what is needed for class.
Parent Education Night is on September 5th, 5:30-7:00. It is a school wide event, please attend if you can. Our Parent Association meeting is on September 6th, 8:45am. It is a great opportunity to get in your 40 hours of volunteer service.
Thank you all for your support and have a restful Labor Day Weekend!
Hi Parents and Students!
This week began with our advisory kick-off field experience to Willard Bay. Students were put into small groups and they were to make boats out of cardboard, duct tape, and plastic.
The final event was to have been a boat race, however due to high winds and rough water, we could not put the boats in the water. We did have a race, but on the sand. We gave the students an opportunity to make adjustments to their vessels to be pushed on the sand. The winners of the Junior High Mascot was House Llorona (Mr. Richard’s Advisory).
On Thursday, we had our 1st Annual Family Luncheon where we opened our doors to families to have lunch and observe classes. All the students met in the commons for lunch, and many of you parents stopped by to visit. It was wonderful to meet all of you. Our Board Chair also stopped in to participate in this luncheon.
This week saw full days of classes. Students were engaged in DIBELS testing on Thursday afternoon and also received their planners. We, as a junior high team, will be showing students how to use their planners during advisory this next week. Students are also receiving new assignments, so check in with them to see what is happening in all of their classes.
Lastly, please review with your child our dress code. Below is the Dos and Don’ts.
Thank you for all of your support and for choosing MMA!
Hello Junior High Students and Parents of MMA!
We, the Junior High team, had a fantastic first week with your children. We spent the first three days in our advisory classes doing team building exercises. Our eager seventh graders learned about the rules in junior high as well as how their schedules will work with moving from class to class and having different teachers for each core subject. The eighth and ninth graders benefited from having this review. The last two days of the week students began classes.
On Monday, August 19th, we will be going to Willard Bay. Please click here for the important details.
Lastly, we would like to invite you to have lunch with your children on Thursday, August 22nd. Bring your lunch and join the Junior High Community at 12:30 in the commons of the addition, then following our meal, you are welcome to observe classes until the end of the school day.
Thank you for choosing MMA! We love having your children as our students and are looking forward to a fantastic school year filled with learning and community!

The Jr High had an amazing Intersession week! Among some of the activities, students created ABC books, solved a kidnapping mystery, wrote poetry, visited the weber county library, explored the history of downtown Ogden, and camped in at the school.
We could not have done any of this without the support of our parents! Thank you to all who donated their time, food, and hard work. Without our parents we would not have been able to pull off such a feat. You truly are the backbone of our community!
