LAGOON DAY 2013 Dear Parents, LAGOON DAY will be Thursday, May 23, 2013. Students who have maintained eligibility in citizenship, attendance, academic progress, and paid all fines are invited to attend this activity. School will be held for those students who are not eligible to attend and for those students who do not sign up to go to Lagoon. Park entrance passes will be available at LAGOON for $28.00. Students will pay for this pass when they arrive at LAGOON—not at the school. Students will be responsible for their own lunch. A non-refundable bus fare of $16.00 will be charged to each student riding the bus to Lagoon. Students MUST bring their completed permission slip and their $16.00 payment for the bus fare to the school financial office by 2:00pm on Friday, May 17th. The number of buses available is limited, so please purchase your bus ticket as soon as possible to ensure you have a seat on the bus. On May 23th, we will be loading the buses in front of the school at 7:30 am and departing promptly at 8:00 am. Except for students that will be attending school this day, no students will be permitted to enter the building. Students will need to come prepared to load directly on one of the buses. Faculty and staff will be assigned to each bus to supervise both ways. The buses will begin loading to return from Lagoon at 3:00 pm and will be departing promptly at 3:15 pm. Parents, please be aware that Lagoon closes at 4:00 pm this day. If a student rides the bus from MJHS to Lagoon, they are expected to return to MJHS on the same bus they rode up on. Any student who is not on their assigned bus by 3:15 pm will be left at Lagoon and will need to be picked up by parents. We will arrive back at Mapleton Jr. between 4:30 and 5:00 pm. Since the school will not be open when we return, and the regular school bus service will not be taking the students home, students and parents should make prior arrangements for rides home after the trip. Students may dress in casual clothes as long as they are modest and comply with the Nebo School District Dress Code. NO tank tops, spaghetti straps, short shorts, or clothing depicting drugs, alcohol, tobacco or inappropriate words or pictures will be allowed. This policy will be enforced as the buses are loaded. Please do not get left behind because you are improperly dressed. Any illegal activities, inappropriate conduct, insubordinate behavior etc. will be dealt with by Lagoon authorities. Students involved in any of the above will be held at Lagoon until picked up by parents. We cannot permit a student to go on this trip unless the permission slip below has been signed and returned with the $16.00 non-refundable bus fare. If finances are a problem, please contact the school administration. We would like to make arrangements so everyone eligible can go. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PERMISSION SLIP--Mapleton Junior High School—Due to the office by 2:00pm May 17, 2013 I authorize my student ______________________________to go on the Lagoon trip, May 23, 2013. We agree with the above information and requirements. We will not hold Nebo School District or Mapleton Junior High School liable in case of accident or problem unless negligence has occurred. I also recognize that my student will be expected to ride the same bus to and from Lagoon. _____________________________________ ________________ __________________________________ Parent/Guardian Signature Date Student Signature – Rules Compliance $16.00 non-refundable bus fare
Griffan was nominated for the “Great Kids Award” by several of his teachers; here is was they had to say about him:
Griffan is one of the most gracious, sincere, and thoughtful students. Besides being well-mannered every day, he always does his work to the best of his ability. I have never seen him slack off. He is also well-liked by by his peers because he is a kind friend. I can always count on Griffan to set the example or raise the bar for the class.
I know Griffan Slavens very well I have seen him at church, home, and school, scout camp, ballfields, and service projects. He is a great young man in any setting you may see him in.
Griffan is a wonderful young man. He is considerate of others and always has a smile on his face. I love having him in my class because I can count on him to do what I ask and demonstrate to the other students how things should be done. I wish I had many more Griffans in my class. I highly recommend him for the Great Kids Award.
We are so proud of Griffan and the fine students that he is.

Tiffany was nominated for the “Great Kids Award” by several of her teachers; here is was they had to say about her:
Tiffany is a great girl who is always positive and enthusiastic about life. She was always prepared in my CTE Intro class and shared comments in class. I especially appreciated her help during the sewing unit.
She would just jump right in and help without me even asking. I know she helped one student before even completing her own apron. Tiffany is also a member of my FCCLA Club. She helped out a lot with our service project of sewing Operation Comfort dolls which we just sent off to Indiana. These will be given to women who have suffered domestic violence in their lives. Tiffany is developing great leadership skills and is kind to everyone. She is a great Mapleton Mustang!
Tiffany Asay is the student teachers would fight over. Not only is she
extremely talented, creative, and thoughtful, she is incredibly
humble. Whenever I see a student struggling, lacking confidence,
lonely, or off-task, I try to think of a way to have them work with
Tiffany. She is so accepting and loving. What a great kid!
Tiffany Asay is a great student in my art class. She does quality work that is always on time as well. One specific thing that I love about Tiffany is that she will not leave after class until she has caught my eye and said "thank you for today, Ms. Walker!" She is such a wonderful person and student!
Tiffany sets herself apart from others in just her radiance of goodness. She is a delight to talk to and always has something positive to say.
We are so proud of Tiffany and the great student that she is.

Jo Edan Parker is a special education teacher of severe behavioral students at Mapleton Junior High. She has worked for Nebo School District for nine years and in California for 17 years. She works with students from across Nebo School District who have severe intellectual and behavioral challenges. But it isn't just her teaching that sets her apart. Parker's colleagues and student parents say she goes above and beyond for her students.
"Jo Edan is more than just a teacher," said Janeal LeBaron, a parent of a former student. "I have known her for 20 years and she is an excellent teacher and friend. She is creative with the ways she teaches the kids. She knows that these kids don't just learn from books. She takes her knowledge of them and teaches them the way they learn. She is a good lady."
Along with the basics of school, reading, math and writing, Parker also teaches her students life skills. She plans field trips to expose the students to life outside a classroom. Some of the field trips have included traveling to the mall, restaurants, bowling or fishing.
"Jo Edan is an example of a dedicated teacher," said Linda Lewis, Mapleton Junior High PE and drama teacher. "She has the ability to create meaningful experiences for each one of her students."
Parker also helped organize the annual Nebo Special Ed Extravaganza. Special education students in junior high in Nebo School District attend the event. Peer tutors from various schools help the students participate in track and field events.
"Jo Edan teaches the students with the toughest behavioral issues in the district," said Regina Stoddard, whose son has been Parker's student for three years. "I was very nervous to bring Benjamin here because I know that he is violent, but Jo Edan told me that she knew she would get pinched, kicked, hit and bit and that it would be OK. I trusted her when she told me this. She is a miracle worker. There are students who leave her classroom and never have behavioral issues again. She isn't fazed by the violence of some of the students. We are very lucky to have her as a teacher."
Parker's close friends, bowling team members, colleagues and other district employees gathered to congratulate Parker during the presentation.
"Wow," Parker said. "Receiving this award is overwhelming and so exciting. I love my students. They are the most precious kids, even though they are the most difficult. I get to work with some amazing parents as well."
"I have the opportunity to go through out the state and give these awards to so many amazing educators," Karen Huntsman said. "I have a 37-year-old son who is on a 3-year-old level and while raising him, I have learned so much. Jo Edan is a unique person. She is a person that I wish we could Xerox and make many copies of and put through out the state. She makes a difference in so many lives. I appreciate all you do."
