Dear Students and Parents,

 

Thank You Veterans!

Although yesterday November 11th was officially Veterans Day it is being observed nationwide today. With that in mind MJHS wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who have contributed so much to the freedom of this nation and our community by serving in our armed forces. We sincerely honor and appreciate your service! Today during Mustang time all students participated in a lesson about Veterans Day. Please be sure and ask your student what they felt and learned today as they participated in our Veterans Day Mustang Time lesson.

Kallie received three more rounds of chemotherapy that was stopped because the chemotherapy did nothing to slow the growth of the tumor. Kallie finished another six  doses of stronger radiation, but the tumor is still growing. A new tumor spot was just found in her back.  Kallie’s mom, Kimberly Bjarnson, said, “Kallie plans to travel to Colorado to receive a trial drug, that we are hoping and praying will work to kill these cancer cells!”  Ms. Jessica Mohler, health and student government teacher at Mapleton Junior High, is helping to make Kallie’s dreams come true. If you would like to help, email jessica.mohler@nebo.edu.  Watch Kallie’s story on ABC4 News, by reporter Kara Murphy, at 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. tonight, November 12, 2018.
