THANK YOU MMCA PTA for our new picnic tables!

Hot Lunch Update- BIG NEWS, READ HERE!
Beginning immediately, Maria Montessori Charter Academy will serve lunch at no charge to children 18 years of age and younger, regardless of eligibility.
Based on a federal program, we are able to offer this service to all families through December of this year. Meals can be picked up at our Multi Purpose Room between 11:00a and 11:30a (you can pick up your entire week of meals on Wednesdays--heating instructions will be provided). Meals may be picked up by a guardian if the student(s) is in a virtual class. This service will remain in effect whether we are in distance learning or on-campus learning. This applies to older or younger siblings that are under 18 years; just create a profile (in Boonli) for the sibling and order.
Please order your meals at our Boonli website (mmca.boonli.com). If you need to create an account, our school password in "MMCA1." Orders are due weekly on Thursday nights at 11:59pm.
All current accounts have been changed to free status. If you add any profiles (for siblings, for instance) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that the account needs to be updated to free status.
For this to work, we also need all of our families to fill out the free/reduced lunch application on our website, available via this link here: https://c42096c6-2e4d-493d-bdff-126f872232dd.filesusr.com/ugd/4b8266_991b84cfd9474bd5aced4f09bb25a53c.pdf.
Thanks to the federal program, it doesn’t matter whether or not you qualify for free lunch, everyone in your household 18 years of age or younger will be eligible for a free lunch through December. Please fill this application out and either email it to email@example.com or drop it off at our front office.
Preschool Available Spots
Spread the word: Given all of the uncertainty in the region caused by COVID, we still have spots available in our preschool this year. Preschool applications are accepted on a “first come, first served” basis.
Round 3 Student Uniform Orders
The first two rounds of uniform orders have been delivered. We’re starting our third round, with an order deadline of 9.8.20 (orders typically take about 2 weeks to process). Given COVID, we’ve added a new item to our student store - a school spiritwear cloth mask (pictured below).
Part time work - lunch staff and ASC
Given the increased number of lunch/recess groups we’re going to have as a part of our COVID mitigation plan, we’re going to be looking for more staff to work during our lunch periods and potentially during After School Care. If interested, please contact Mr. Baldonade at firstname.lastname@example.org.
