Dear Students and Parents,

Basketball Open Gym Starts Tomorrow

Open gym for Basketball will begin tomorrow, October 1 from 2:45 - 3:45 p.m. and continue every Tuesday and Thursday through the month (except for Oct. 8th, 17th, 31st). All grades are welcome to participate in open gym. It will be important that any 9th grade student wanting to try out for the school team attends these sessions. Additionally, any 9th grader that does plan to try out needs to make sure that they have completed the physical exam and all “Register My Athlete” requirements. Click this link for RegisterMyAthlete information. Basketball try-outs will be held for 9th grade boys and girls teams on November 11th and 12th. If you have any questions please contact Coach Lines or Coach Schaffer.

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
