7th & 8th Farm Overnight Field Trip

As our farm field trip is approaching we are looking for some help with chaperoning, certified drivers,and donations. The overnight trip will be held on May 11th and 12th. Students will arrive at 9 am on the 11th, and depart at 2 pm on the 12th.

Certified drivers willing to drive for either day, please email Jessica at jatwood@mariamontessoriacademy.org to be added to the wejoin. In the email please include how many students you will be able to drive.

We are planning a overnight field experience to Holmgren Historic Farm on May 11-12 for all 7th and 8th grade students (permissions slips to shortly be sent out). We need to have several parents accompany us as a chaperones either for the day(s) and/or to spend the night. The link provided provides you a place to sign up. Before you commit to chaperone, we need you to take a minute to review the following information: As a chaperone you will be overseeing student behavior and committing to ensure students are engaged in learning and making choices that are safe and respectful. In order to do this chaperones will be assigned a group for rotations and will ensure that group members do not wander off or disregard Farm rules of behavior. We want to set a good example for students, so please engage with your group and in all of the days’ and evening’s activities. In addition to these responsibilities, we want you to learn much and enjoy yourself. Please sign up HERE.

We are in need of some food donations to make this trip a success. For a list of the items needed, and to sign up click HERE.

North Ogden Gardens

Each Year the students at Maria Montessori Academy Junior High help prepare the North Ogden Community Gardens by participating in their spring cleanup and garden box preparation. We will examine concepts in Agriculture, use garden tools to clean up old garden plots and prepare them by replenishing top soil. We will learn to communicate concisely in accomplishing our tasks and we will identify the relationship and impact of agriculture on the family and consumer.

Your students should be bringing their permission slip home today, for our trip to the gardens on Friday, April 22nd. We will be walking as a class to the Gardens. Permission forms are due back on April 20th.

If your students needs another permission slip they may print one here: North Ogden Garden Permission Forms
