Dear Students and Parents,
Parent/Teacher Conferences - This THURSDAY
P/T Conferences will be held this Thursday, Sept 26th, from 3:30 – 8:00 p.m. This is a great time to visit with teachers and discuss how your student is doing in class. All teachers will be in the gym - As you come in, please stop at the front office to pick up a copy of your student's midterm grade report from the counselors.
Join PTO at Parent/Teacher Conferences
All parents, guardians and teachers are invited to join our Mapleton Jr. High PTO this Thursday evening during P/T Conferences - The cost is only $7 and can be paid by cash or check on Thursday evening - Just drop by the PTO table near the front office and sign up.
If you would like to re-do your school picture, retake day is this Thursday, Sept. 26th. Any student that missed picture day (or that would like to have their school picture retaken) should participate. Pictures are needed for student ID and to be in the yearbook. If your student is having their picture retaken, please send the old picture packet back to school with them and turn in it to Bell Photography when they are called down.
Participate in Battle of the Books!
We are excited to kick off our third year of Battle of the Books at Mapleton Junior High School! Talk to your friends and classmates and create a team of four to five students. Your team can be any combination of 7th, 8th or 9th grade students. To sign up - simply drop by the library and pick up a permission slip from Mrs. Marett and return it stapled together with your team before Friday, October 4th! Please note - You DO NOT need to form a full team to submit your permission slip - we will form teams for all students that do not have a full team request or friend preference. Then read 4 to 5 books from the “Battle of the Books” list and you are ready to compete! In early January 2020, teams will come together for a game show style tournament during school where they will work as a team to answer questions about the books on the list. Parents - We also need volunteers to help run battles during school hours one week in January. If you would like to help out during that week, call or email your name and phone number to Lori Marett, Media Specialist, 801-489-2892 firstname.lastname@example.org
