Dave Jex is a teacher who truly lives by the Motto students are the focus, Success is the goal.  He is positive and genuine, to his students and they know exactly what is expected of them.  One student said that “Jex is very uplifting and Positive.  He supports his students and knows them each personally.”  I witness this every time I see students come back to the junior high.   One question I always get is Have you seen Jex?   He impacts his students in way that they will never forget.

Ms. Heaton’s Reading for Enjoyment class decided that, for their final class project of the semester, they wanted to share their love of reading with a local elementary school. This past Wednesday, Ms. Heaton’s students walked to Hobble Creek Elementary to help Ms. Flake’s first graders with their reading and writing. It was a successful project, and everyone had an enjoyable time.

The Mustang Charitable Fundraiser recently finished up by raising $3479.20 that will now go toward three different causes. First, it was used last week to fund our Sub for Santa project - Student government students went shopping and bought gifts for local kids so they can have a christmas that they might not have had. Second, we will be buying fleece and tying the ends to make blankets for Utah Valley Hospital Primary Children's Network in Provo. Lastly, with the remaining money we will be donating supplies to a women and children shelter that helps local women and children going through a crisis. Thank you for your amazing support of this holiday tradition!
