HOPE Squad

Kirsten Hullinger

MJHS started the Hope Squad this year. The mission statement of Hope Squad is to reduce the number of youth suicides in the state of Utah by providing education, training, and expertise in suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention.


Last Wednesday the Hope Squad members attended their training at Shadow Mountain. The mountains were beautiful and the time was well spent! Dr. Greg Hudnall was our guest speaker and he talked about the role and importance Hope Squads have all across the state of Utah. He motivated and got us excited about our newly formed Hope Squad.

Red Ribbon Week at MJHS

Andrea Pond

Last week was Red Ribbon Week at MJHS.  The students all anchored together to take a stand against drugs and bullying by wearing red wristbands throughout the week.  They also wore RED on Wednesday and finished the week with an assembly.  We had a visit and demonstration by the K-9 dog and officers. Thank you to the students and teachers for a great week in support of Red Ribbon Week!

Intro to Manufacturing Class at MJHS

Mr. Powell’s Intro to Manufacturing 1 class has started a toy truck project.  The students are working very hard tracing and cutting out wood pieces and will be assembling the trucks.  The environment in the workshop is very important.  Safety glasses and paying attention to the surroundings is vitally important.  The students are doing an amazing job learning skills they will use in the future.  View the slide show for photos of the finished project and of the students at work.
