Yearbook cover by Courtney Robison

This year’s yearbook will feature one MJHS student’s photography prowess. Early in the year the yearbook staff and photography class (taught by Mr. Anderson) joined forces to find a picture for the cover of the yearbook. Many students submitted great photos, but Courtney Robison’s was chosen. 


The yearbook staff felt that Courtney’s picture best represented the yearbook theme “Entering the Unknown.” The picture features a student overlooking Mapleton as the sun is rising. Staff members commented that they liked how the photograph showed a new day with infinite potential because this school year is a new year with infinite potential. 


Once Courtney’s picture was selected, a team of professional designers worked to transform the picture into our yearbook cover. The designers added a swirling pattern into the picture to represent the way in which the future is unknown. They also added the school name. The cover is a matte finish with a glossy title. 

The amazing talent that went into creating the yearbook cover is just the beginning. Each page of the yearbook was made with care. Pages follow a common design theme to create the best look possible. Each spread also averages 30+ pictures to make sure that as many students as possible are covered in the book. In fact, over 50% of the student body is in the yearbook three times or more!


If you would like to purchase a yearbook, you can do so in the finance office. Books are $26. All orders are due by this Friday, May 22. Yearbooks will be distributed during 6th period on May, 27. Any remaining books will be sold on the last day of school. If you are not sure if you have purchased a book yet, please email Mrs. Carey at (

Thursday, Ms. Tippetts seventh grade English students combined two Japanese art forms to create mementos for Mother's Day. Students first wrote a narrative Haiku on a piece of paper and folded that into origami. Surprisingly, writing the Haiku was much easier than folding a paper crane or 8-petal flower! 

Thanks to all the fantastic mothers that support us!

Spirit of the Mustang - Suzie Rowley

Susie Rowley is a great example of what the spirit of the mustang is all about.  We all know how much Susie has on her plate all the time.  She teaches her classes with energy and passion while maintaining high standards of learning.  All students love to attend Susie’s classes.  She has a busy home life caring for and loving her children and her husband.  She also has a group of students here at the school that love and look up to her for guidance.  Of course I am referring to the student government.  She fulfills the advisor role with a very high level of expectation and the students give it to her because of the respect they have for her.  During the elections here at the school, she always had a smile on her face and accepted every challenge that came her way with determination.  She mentioned that election day was the greatest and the worst day of the year for her.  With all of the love she shows for her students, we all know that this was a true statement for her.  Susie is highly respected by her students, fellow teachers, administration, and her family.  It is for this and many other reasons that Susie Rowley deserves the spirit of the mustang award for the month!
