Please do not forget to complete the MAP survey sent out last week.  We need as many of your 6 – 9th grade cadet scholars to complete this assessment as able.  The assessment information is a critical part of on-going lesson and instructional planning.

 

  1. All cadet families should have received their school platform confirmation. Please review the platform in preparation to have your child in their appropriate setting on September 8, 2020. Remember, MMA will start with limited cadet scholars on campus, and gradually transition additional scholars to in-person learning. If you have questions, or inquiries, please contact an administrator via email or phone between 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. daily.  
  2. Parents, please continue familiarizing yourself with the CANVAS electronic platform. All of your child’s school related assignments and information will be located there. Please check our website for CANVAS tutorials and parent guides. 
  3. Senior Cadets: Please begin applying to the college or university of choice.  Many schools have waived the SAT/ACT requirement and will issue early acceptance and admissions
