We extend a warm welcome to students, parents, and families of Mapleton Junior High School, Home of the Mustangs. We look forward to working with you to achieve our school mission statement: Students are the focus, success is the goal.  Our goal is to create a positive school culture where all students feel a sense of belonging, pride, and enthusiasm in their learning and achievements.

Registration

You should be receiving your registration information in the mail next week. The finance office will be open from 9:00-1:00 PM each day. You may register in one of three ways:

  • Mail in Registration: In order to save time and avoid lines we encourage parents to use this method. Complete the registration forms and return them with a self-addressed stamped envelope. Once we have received the completed forms and your payment we will mail out your student’s schedule.

  • Drop off Registration: In order to save time and avoid lines you are also welcome to use our drop off box located in the front office.  Complete the registration forms and return them with a self-addressed stamped envelope or you may pick up your student’s schedule the following day.

  • Walk in Registration: We will be holding an open walk in registration beginning August 3rd. The finance office will be open from 9:00 am -1 pm each day until Friday, August 14th. Please understand that choosing this option (running credit cards and receipting payments) can be a timely process.

The upcoming 2015-2016 student government went to CLAS Ropes Course in June. We had such a great time learning about teamwork, believing in yourself and others. It was a great way to get to know each other and start to plan for the upcoming school year! We have a great group that will represent our school well!
