Jr. High Field Day Chaperones

The junior high will be spending their field day at Beus Pond Park on May 20th from 9 am to 2 pm. There are lots of shady areas and grassy areas for plenty of games and team sports. Students can also walk out on the dock and cross the steams on footbridges. We are looking for as many parents to volunteers as we can get. If you would be willing to join us on the excursion please contact Ms. Jessica or Ms. Fallon.

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
