MMA Hiking Club

Dear Parents,
We are very excited to announce, that we will be heading up a hiking club for Students at MMA. This will be an afterschool program for all students who are interested. We will meet about once every two weeks and hike the trails in and around the Ogden area. On the hikes we will introduce the children to the flora and fauna that is all around us. There will be two hiking groups one for beginning hikers and one for intermediate hikers.
If you are interested in your child being a member of the hiking club you must attend a mandatory parent meeting this Thursday March 10th at 6:00 pm in the school library. At the meeting you will be given the information as to where we will be hiking, permission slips, parent and student contracts, supply fee, and have the opportunity to meet the teachers and ask questions. Space is limited so make sure you mark your calendars.
Hope to see you there,
The Hiking Club
