The Nebo Education Foundation surprised Mrs. Burton's classroom with a grant today. Mrs. Burton is our special education teacher at MJHS, she said "Today we were awarded a grant of $1,300.00 to purchase iPad's for our classroom. For my masters thesis in 2011, I researched using iPads to aid in academic learning in the classroom and access to the common core - the results were amazing! I can't wait to watch these amazing kids continue to learn and grow, they deserve the best! Thank you Nebo Foundation and Mapleton Junior High."
I would like to recognize Bonny Groneman as having the spirit of a Mustang.
Bonny is an advocate for all students. In every collaboration meeting I have been in with Bonny she is always sharing ideas based upon the needs of the students. She not only focuses on the needs of the low achieving students but also remembers the students who excel in their subjects. She reminds us that students are individuals that each need personal nurture and care.

Students who do not buy their books in advance can purchase any remaining books in the finance office on the last day of school. Late purchases will be first come first serve while supplies last.
