Last week was HOPE Week, Hope Squad members were busy with fun activities for the student body. The students dressed up each day, donuts were during lunch, and positive post-it notes were hung on lockers.

On March 17, 2017 several MJHS students competed in the State Math Contest. We would like to recognize MJHS’s top performers in each grade. 7th grade Isaac Woolford, 8th grade McKenzie Hoffman, and 9th grade Trevor Larsen. All students that participated did a fantastic job in representing MJHS.
Congratulations to DeAnne Helquist who was nominated by our staff as Teacher of the Year! “Deanne is fantastic! She is known throughout the state as one of the best orchestra teachers. She taught orchestra for over 41 years and positively influenced thousands of students. Deanne creates something magical in her classroom. Students are happily engaged in learning, playing, and harmonizing beautiful music in orchestra. She provides clear expectations, excellent pacing, positive reminders, cueing, proximity, and tasking. Deanne’s love for teaching and music brings learning alive for her students.”
Several MJHS students had their science fair projects qualify to advance to the Central Utah Science and Technology Fair at BYU the week before Spring Break. Of those students, Olivia Smith and Alexi Corfield's team project placed 2nd overall in the Chemistry division at CUSEF! Congratulations to these ladies!
