Scholastic Book Fair is Coming to MMCA!

The Book Fair is coming to MMCA the first week of October! In order to make it as successful as possible - we need your help! Please consider signing up for 1 or more 30 minute volunteer slots.

Outdoor Classroom / MMCA Garden Update

The MMCA Garden needs your help! If you are looking to volunteer, but do not want to work with the dirt, I have the opportunity for you. We are looking for someone to help with our once a year fundraiser ( Big Day of Giving) and someone to help with lesson supply gathering. If you are interested, contact Kristin Thomas at

Follow along with the progress of our garden here:

Volunteer Opportunities:

  1. Afterschool Club Leaders: Our first round of after school clubs will start in September.. Individual clubs usually last for one hour after school and go for six weeks. So far, we have a Karate Club (with belting) and an Art Club ready, and we’re looking for a couple more clubs. If you’re interested in leading a club, please contact Ray Baldonade at

  1. All School Garden Workday: Within the next month, we’re going to have a work day for our outdoor classroom that will include bark and DG pathway work - many hands make light work! If you’re interested in helping out with our garden, please contact Kristin Thomas at

  1. Art Docents: We’re going to be recruiting for Art Docents for each of our classrooms - if you are interested in being an Art Docent, please contact Art Docent Coordinator Julie Cohodes at

Free Dress Days:

Sign-up for Parent-Teacher Goal Setting Conferences

October 2nd – 4th, 2023

You are invited to sign-up for your child’s conference which will be held in the afternoons Monday, October 2nd through Wednesday, October 4th You will have online access to schedule conferences starting Monday, September 18th through Thursday, September 28th.

How to schedule your child(ren)’s conference:

2. “Maria Montessori Charter Academy” and press “Go”

3. There will be a prompt for a school password; the password is: mmca

4. The next screen will ask you to “enter the student’s ID” - we are NOT using student ID’s. Instead, press the “LOOKUP STUDENT ID” button.

5. After pressing the “look up student ID” button, you will be prompted to enter your child’s first name, last name, and birthdate and then press “LOOKUP”.

6. After your child has been identified, the program will ask you to do two things:

a. Select the classroom you want to schedule the conference for (note: ALL of our classrooms are listed by color names, not teacher names); and

b. If you have multiple children that you want to schedule a conference for, it will give you the opportunity to look up the next child (this will give you the opportunity to see multiple classroom conference schedules listed next to each other, making it convenient for your scheduling)

7. The program will take you through a couple of self-explanatory calendar screens, and your conference will be scheduled.

If you are having issues with the software program, you have two alternatives to schedule your conference:

a. You may come into the office to use one of our computers.

b. You may call the office after 9:00am and they can assist you with scheduling.
