Mapleton Junior High MathTeam has another top-10 finish in State! The MJHS MathTeam claimed 8th overall at the MathCounts state contest in Salt Lake on March 7th. Tyler J. led the scoring for the team and claimed 7th place individually. Kudos to the rest of the team as well: Morgan B., Joshua J., and Jared H. With back-to-back top-10 finishes in the state, and a solid group of returning students, MJHS MathTeam will look to crack the top 5 next competition season.

2020 Census

The U.S. Census Bureau has embarked on a nationwide effort to inform everyone living in the United States and five of its territories about the upcoming 2020 Census and to encourage them to respond online, by phone, or by mail.

Everyone counts. The census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right places.

It’s about fair representation. Every 10 years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.

It’s in the constitution. The U.S. Constitution mandates that everyone in the country be counted every 10 years. The first census was in 1790.

It’s about $675 billion. The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on census data. That money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs.

The 2020 Census count impacts the federal funds that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students, and younger children, such as: 

  • Special education, 
  • Head Start, 
  • After-school programs, and 
  • Classroom technology. 
  • Food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches.
  • Maternal and child health programs.

Counting Children
Newborn babies and children under 5 are often missed in the census, with consequences that can impact nearly their entire childhood. 

For more information, go to:  2020Census.gov.

United States Census 2020 is also looking for Census Takers. You can apply online at: 2020CENSUS.GOV/jobs. You can make extra income, have flexible hours, weekly pay, and receive paid training.
