Mustang Message 8/19/19
Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to the new 2019- 2020 School Year - I hope you had a great first day!
Picture Day is Coming Soon!
MJHS Picture Day will be this Thursday, August 22nd. Pictures packets were sent home with students today. If you choose to purchase a picture package, you can either return the packet and money on picture day, giving it directly to the photographers OR you can preview package options and prepay for them online. Simply click here - www.bellphoto.com and enter the MJHS online code: mapletonjrfall19 to pre-order your package. If you order online, your student won’t need to bring a receipt or the packet on picture day. All students will have their picture taken whether or not you decide to purchase a picture package so that it can be used for their student ID card and for the yearbook.

Register My Athlete - for Participation In ANY School Sport This Year
Please be aware that Nebo School District requires that athletes who are trying out for any team sport have a current physical exam on file BEFORE trying out for the team. Exams are valid for one year. Parents will need to go to www.registermyathlete.com to register their student and then upload the physical exam information as well as electronically sign other participation disclosures and information. No student will be allowed to try out for a sport without first completing the athletic registration at the Register MyAthlete.Com website.

Participate in Girls Tennis
All girls grades 7 - 9 are invited to participate in MJHS tennis. There will be a players information meeting on Wednesday August 21st at 2:50 p.m. in Mr. Stevenson’s room 214 to discuss tryouts and what to expect. Tryouts will be the 28th and 29th of August. The meeting will cover and include paperwork for how to complete register my athlete registration. This is necessary to tryout and play on the tennis team. A part of registration includes receiving a physical. If the athlete has not received a physical within a year, a new one will be required. Please let one of the coaches know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you! - Coach Stevenson and Coach Johnson
