Make sure to stop by and check out the lost and found rack outside the back of the Admin building - dozens and dozens of items are waiting to return to their owners.


Student Use of Technology Policy

Quick reminder that MMCA has an existing policy regarding ‘student use of technology.’  In particular, I’d like to highlight this part regarding cell phones: 


“Cell phones must be put away and turned off during school hours. Teachers may collect electronics and cell phones at the entry to each classroom each morning and return them upon dismissal each afternoon. Students who are seen using their cell phone / electronic device during the school day will be assigned school discipline.” During the past few weeks, we’ve dealt with some issues related to student cell phone use, including preschoolers and kindergarteners bringing smart watches to school.  Please remind your child(ren) about this school policy.


PTA Elections for 2024/25 School Year


Did you know the PTA does that?


School Events: We host tons of events like school festivals, parties and dances.

Fundraisers: The PTA raises money for our school!

Projects:  We are always raising money for at least one campus project like garden benches, filtered water fountain, smart boards and so much more.

Lending Closet:  We have collected and distributed much needed clothes for students in need. 

Teacher and Staff Support:  We organize teacher and staff luncheons and an amazing teacher and staff appreciation week line up.


We are able to do all of this because of membership and support from people like you.

State CAASPP Testing Continues!

Our 4th-5th and 7th-8th graders did great this week!  The annual State Testing (CAASPP) continues the next week for:

Week of May 20th: Orange, and 5th and 8th grade Science (CAST)


A good test can identify a child's strengths and weaknesses and show where he or she needs extra help. At school, we talk about the purpose and importance of testing. And we practice various test-taking skills such as following directions and using time wisely. There are also some things parents/guardians can do to help your child do better on tests. 


Before a Test, Children Need: 

ƒ a full night's sleep 

ƒ a good breakfast 

ƒ comfortable school clothing 

ƒ a little understanding if they're anxious or upset.


Helpful Tips and Reminders on How to Talk With Your Child About Tests:

ƒ Mention that you value tests because they are designed to help children learn better. 

ƒ Encourage your child to take the test seriously and do as well as possible, but reassure your child that he or she will not be in trouble for items missed. 

ƒ Never add pressure in the form of threats or rewards attached to test results. Do not make comparisons to siblings. 

ƒ Emphasize that every child is unique in terms of strengths and learning styles and deserves to be loved for that uniqueness.
