6th Grade Shadows

Attention Students:

We will be having 6th grade students come over the Jr. High to shadow one of you in order to learn what the Jr. High is about. On the link below students may pick up to three students to mentor, but in the end the situations will be determined by Ms. Emily.  Note that if there is an absolute situation and a student desires one mentor-ship in particular, they should speak with Ms. Emily face to face.

Thank you

Living Museum

Students are going to have an opportunity to participate in a living museum at MMA. The purpose of the museum is to help students identify with historical and literary figures by researching their life, style of dress and accomplishments. We will also us the museum to raise money for “Pennies for Peace” a foundation for schools in rural Afghanistan. If students would like to participate in the museum they will need to follow the guidelines and expectations on the attached document.

Student Emails

At MMAJH we strive to help students learn to collaborate and utilize technological tools made safe through our Google for Education account.  Each student is assigned a gmail account which gives them access to tools such as Gmail, Google Documents, Google Presentations, Google Calendar, and more!

The purpose of this email is to inform students and parents that the format for the school email has been changed for returning students.  The new format is:

first initial last

For example if my name were George Washington, my email would be:           

I will be distributing the password to establish the account on Monday and Tuesday. If you would like the password before then, just email me at and I will email it to you your password.

Ogden Weber Applied Technology Trip


ATCOn Wednesday CTE Introduction will be researching programs offered by Ogden Weber Applied Technology College and Davis Applied Technology College in preparation for our arranged tour of the Ogden Weber ATC.  The eighth graders attended the Davis ATC last year and have been invited to join the 7th graders this year as we tour the Ogden ATC.

Permission Slips were passed out to the students and were required to be returned Friday, April 17th.  Students who failed to return their slips on time will not be able to join the group.  Because we find great value in helping students understand their career training options those students staying behind will be required to choose one program from either ATC to research.  In lieu of attendance at the ACT they will then take their research to complete a Utah Compose informative essay.  This essay will need a minimum of three revisions and a minimum score of 15. Students who don’t complete their essay in the time provided on Friday will be working on it until it is finished, instead of attending field day and other extra-curricular activities.

For those attending click HERE for an itinerary of the field trip: ATC Cover letter

Please direct any questions or concerns about this field trip and/or Utah Compose Assignment to Ms. Emily 

Thank you for your support,

Ms. Emily
