Nordic Valley Ski Night


We’re happy to have scheduled our ski/snowboard nights at Nordic Valley! The nights we have scheduled are January 13, 2015 and February 3, 2015.

The cost is $27 per student, which includes equipment rental, a lift pass, and a 2 hour group lesson. There is a discount for students with their own equipment and/or a season pass to Nordic Valley. An optional meal is available for $5. Our group lessons will begin at 4:00pm. In order to make it possible for students to make it to the resort and be ready to ski at 4:00pm, we will be doing registration at MMA.

Registration will be held on the following dates and times:

Monday, December 15th 5:00-7:00 in the evening

Wednesday, December 17th 8:00-8:30 in the morning

Monday, January 5th 3:00-4:00 after school

** Monday is the last day for registration for the January 13th ski night. We will schedule more dates for the February 3rd ski night.**

We will take cash, check, or credit card. Please make checks payable to MAPA.



Box Top Store

A special holiday Box Top Store will be at MMA on Tuesday, December 16th from 11:15 to 12:45 in the conference room. Don’t forget to have your children come with their cut and non-expired box tops to ‘buy’ lots of fun presents for their family, friends, or themselves! If you’re interested in helping MMA, but can’t volunteer, consider a monetary donation to the box top store so we can restock the shelves. It’s been a huge success, and the more help we get, the better!
