We are in need of certified drivers and volunteers for our second visit to the Farm. This field trip will be held on January 12th and 13th from 9 am to 2 pm. If you are willing to drive and/or volunteer please contact Ms. Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We promote a healthy classroom environment for each student with as minimal distractions as possible. As holiday treats flow throughout the season, we encourage students to be mindful of what they bring to school; for example, soda, sugary foods, and energy drinks are to be enjoyed at home rather then during school hours. Also, in the junior high we encourage students to provide their own snacks. These snacks times are an excellent opportunity to provide a healthy snack. Healthy snacks should always be finger foods without noisy, bulky packaging. We are seeing a lot of ‘chips’ which are noisy and greasy for our technology and materials. Most of the students are hungry before lunch, and if they are hungry enough, they will eat what is put in front of them. Let’s put healthy choices in their hands. Please reference our wellness policy for any questions you may have.
The first-ever Maria Montessori Academy Literary Magazine is published and available for purchase! The MMA Review is a magazine that is made up entirely by student and teacher submissions. This magazine contains original writing, photography, and artwork from students from Pre-K through Grade 9. It is a wonderful display of our students’ creativity. The MMA Review can be purchased from the main office for just $3.00! Please stop by the main office and purchase your copy!! (All proceeds will be donated to the 9th Grade Trip.)
After much feedback and living the half day bell schedule it has been decided to revise it. Starting with the second semester (January 15th), half-days will be 4 shorted class periods and lunch/advisory. The classes are 55 minutes a piece and lunch/Advisory is 40, so that might allow for time to meet and an informal activity.
