Dear Students and Parents,

Reminder - End of Second Term

Did you realize there are only seven school days left in this term after Christmas Break?  Please check with teachers to get any missing work gathered, completed and turned in. The holiday break provides extra time if needed, to make up school work that could help raise a grade.  Take advantage of the opportunity!

 

Way to Go Mustangs! - MJHS Annual Fundraiser Was a Huge Success

Congratulations to our awesome students as well as the Mapleton Police/Fire Departments, Chick-fil-A, Fizz, and Ashman Dental - together we raised over $12,000 that will now go toward several different causes. First, it was used last week to fund our Sub for Santa project - Student government students went shopping and bought gifts for local kids so they can have a Christmas that they might not have had. Second, we will be buying fleece and tying the ends to make blankets for Utah Valley Hospital Primary Children's Network in Provo. And finally and perhaps most importantly, a portion of the funds will be used to send our love and support to Kallie Jensen and another student, both of whom are battling cancer - Thank you for your amazing support of this holiday tradition!

 

Springville Public Library - Teen Night

Friday, December 21st from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. all youth, grades 7 - 12 are invited to come participate in Springville Library’s annual Christmas Teen Night. There will be a lot of fun activities going on - like an ugly sweater contest, gingerbread houses, the candy bar game, fortnite and brawl games, etc., but more importantly the library will be hosting the first ever Winter Reading program, which will also kick off that evening! Come join the fun this Friday at Springville Public Library.

 

School Reading for Enjoyment Competition

Spirit of the Mustang Award Recipients

Pictured here are our last two Spirit of the Mustang recipients, Kirsten Hullinger and Angie Fielding.

Angie Fielding is one of the very best trackers I have ever worked with! I have been in education for over 18 years and have worked with numerous trackers over the years and I have to say that Angie is one of the very best! She is incredibly caring, kind, proactive and dedicated to helping our students feel success. Angie is constantly checking on and pulling kids down to work with her one on one to help them succeed in their classes. She works each day in SuperFLEX to offer support to our struggling students. I feel very grateful to have Angie working with our students as a tracker at MJHS. Thanks for all you do for our students Angie!

Dear Students and Parents,

Student Led Conferences this Thursday, Dec. 6th

By way of reminder: Student Led Conferences will be held this Thursday from 3:30 – 8:00 p.m. Please be aware that these Conferences will be slightly different than in past years - Instead of reporting to only one location, students and parents will rotate through each of their student’s classes. While in each classroom, students will share with their parents a short explanation of their own learning progress based on a specific standard, project or artifact of learning. The intent is that the student leads their parent in a meaningful discussion of their own learning. We hope this will provide an opportunity for students to reflect on their learning as well as where they are in the learning practice process. If you need to speak with any of your student’s teachers they will also be available to visit with you. It is estimated that most parents will spend about an hour and a half total completing the conferences. Of course, if you are time-crunched you could only visit those classes of the most concern. All parents/guardians and students are encouraged to attend.

 

Student Council Annual Charitable Fundraiser Continues

Reminder - Our annual charitable fundraiser continues through December 7th. We have almost reached our goal of $3000. Please take your donations to your second period teacher. This year you can be the change in someone’s life by donating a few dollars!    

 

Chick-fil-A Is Helping to Support the Annual Charitable Fundraiser

We are happy to announce that Chick-fil-A is sponsoring a “Spirit Night” at the Spanish Fork location to support our Annual Charitable Fundraiser. To participate simply dine at the Spanish Fork location of Chick-fil-A between 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. tomorrow, December 4th and tell the cashier that you want to support the Mapleton Jr. High Fundraiser and 15% of the purchase will go back to our school.

 

Mapleton City Public Safety Department Is also Supporting the Charitable Fundraiser

Our awesome Mapleton PD and Fire Dept have been gathering donations from the community to help with our charitable fundraiser. They have extended a friendly challenge to our students to see if they can raise more money than students towards this awesome cause. Students are encouraged to donate through the school and community members can donate through Mapleton Police Department - See Mapleton PD Facebook page for more details.

 

Last Day for Winter Clothing Collection

We are concluding the winter clothing collection tomorrow, Tuesday, December 4th.  If you have any adult sized coats or gloves (new or used) or hats and scarves (new only), please have your student bring them to the big yellow box in the front office at school tomorrow. Our school has collected over 100 items! Thank you for all of your support
