Exciting News
We are so excited to have 3 new staff members with us this year.  Sara Nelson, who most of you know and love already, is going to be our new school secretary.  Sara has been a long time supporter of MJA and it’s a perfect transition for her into our front office. Welcome Sara.
Robert Valeris joins our teaching staff in the English/History department for our upper grades.  He is a new graduate from Andrews University and we love that he is making his teaching debut with MJA.  If you haven’t had a chance to shake his hand yet, please do so. 
Rosalba Fajardo is teaching Spanish I this year to our 9th and 10th grade class.  We are lucky to have snagged her for this important language class.  Bienvenidos!
