As a reminder- this Friday, Oct, 3rd the Jr High will be going to JA Biztown. Please arrange to drop your child off at Ogden Front Runner Station located at 2350 Wall Ave Ogden, Utah 84401 at 7:15 am. The students will be transported by Front Runner. Guardians also need to pick up students at Ogden Front Runner at 2:52pm.
Please do not just assume your child has a ride! If you are unable to take or pickup, please visit the WeJoinIn link so they can get a ride from the school and/or brought back to the school from a few Certified Drivers. http://www.wejoinin.com/sheets/tgpjn Once the said ‘carload’ is full, that driver will no longer be available. Please give them plenty of notice so that all students can enjoy this experience.
Melinda Montgomery- (801) 695-6188 – [firstname.lastname@example.org] and Jeanne Smith – (801) 920-304 can also help you set up your child’s ride.
We have three more slots for parent volunteers for JA Biztown. Please email Ms. Emily if you are interested.
The event is this Friday. Volunteers need to report to the Discovery Gateway at 8:30 for a brief training. We should be done between 1 and 1:30 pm.
Please let Ms. Emily know of any students with alternate travel plans other than the Front Runner so an accurate head count can be established.

Today we looked at how far we have already come. We watched and listened to Laura Mvula’s song Green Garden. This song represents our purest intent when we visit our adopted farm and our willing to GO this year together. Enjoy the song.

Permission Slips for The Farm Field Trip are due by this Thursday, Sept. 4th. Each student received a form specific to the date they are scheduled to attend.
On September 11 and 12 – depending on which group your child will be assigned to attend, we will be participating in a field study to the Holmgren Historic Family Farm (460 N. 300 E. Tremonton, UT 84337). Please make the necessary arrangements to drop your child off at the farm at 9am on the morning your child is assigned, and pick up by 2:30 that afternoon.
Throughout our current Cycle we will have been building our community of learners through hands-on activities and team building work. This work occupies the normalization period and is an essential part of the Montessori secondary philosophy. In addition to building a strong community of self-directed learners, the Montessori secondary program acknowledges the adolescent need for meaningful labor and the outdoors. To accomplish these tasks, we will turn our focus to the Holmgren Historic Family Farm. By learning the history of who has resided on the land, investigating the migration patterns of birds, identifying indigenous plant life, we will reach a deeper understanding of our land and fulfill Maria Montessori’s vision of Erdkinder.
Below is a copy of the packing list. Please, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to address them with any of the staff.
