Dear Students and Parents,

Please Update Emergency Contact Information

Parents, So that you are aware and ready for emergency communication from MJHS. If/When the school needs to quickly send an important or urgent message out to all parents, we send a text message through our communication system. In order for you to receive that message you must have entered a cell phone number in Aspire ahead of time. To check whether your phone is designated as a cell phone or to add your cell phone number on your account you should login to your parent Aspire account - After selecting your student, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the edit pencil icon in the upper right hand of the contact information box. This opens a new window that shows all contact information for your family. To check cell phone status or enter a cell phone number, click the edit pencil icon next to your name, toward the bottom of the box ensure that your phone is listed as a “Cell Phone”. The same number can be entered multiple times - for example as the “Main Number” and  “Cell Phone”. Remember that in order to receive text messages you MUST have a number marked as a cell phone number. If you have any questions about this process, please call our school registrar Mrs. Pond at 801-489-2896 and she can help you update your information.

Calling all Mathletes!!!

Mapleton Junior High MathTeam is an extracurricular group for math-loving students at MJHS.  Students meet every Wednesday before school, to participate in challenging and creative mathematical problem solving! The program is designed to give students who have an aptitude and love for math additional challenges beyond the traditional classroom environment. Benefits include:

- Applying regular math concepts in real-world situations, and understanding why math is used

- Starting early on ACT/SAT prep; problem-solving strategies for these types of questions

- Connecting with other students who have a similar interest and aptitude

- Competing with students from other schools around the state and country

Last year, in our first year, the MJHS team ranked 2nd in Utah County and 9th in the state!  This year we are looking to build on that strong performance, and provide more opportunities for our students.  If interested, contact your math teacher and pick up a registration form.
