Attributions: 

Our three fantastic MJHS Bands held their Fall Concert on Thursday, October 12th. The concert began with the Jazz Band students getting started with some up-beat fun music, The Cadet Band followed with a number that included some interesting percussion instruments that gave the piece a “spooky” feeling. The Symphonic Band closed the concert with a couple of Halloween numbers that caught everyone’s attention and had the audience vigorously applauding. Students performed while wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. Our MJHS students did very well and are to be congratulated on representing the band program in such an entertaining way.

The guidelines are as follows:

2- Make sure it is respectful (no graphic violent scenes)

3- Make sure it honors our veterans

4- The art piece needs to be at least 8x10. We want people to be able to see it and the detail you have worked so hard to create. It can be bigger, but 8x10 is the minimum size.

The top 3 art projects will get prizes and recognized in the assembly!

Four Students Represent MJHS at the Fall Captain's Academy

Last Wednesday, September 20th, several students from Mapleton Junior High were invited to attend Nebo School District's leadership conference and heard about sportsmanship and other life lessons from some awesome speakers. The students that attended were selected from our MJHS fall sports teams.  The fall sport captains representing MJHS were Benny West - Cross Country, Zanna Perry - Cross Country, Luke Roylance - Golf, and Hannah Townsend - Girls Tennis.  

The meeting started off with a speaker from IHC about the importance of sleep for athletes and human beings.  Brodie Berg, a former Pro Golfer turned Fireman, then presented on what it means to be a leader, sharing some great experiences. 

After a short break the final speaker was Wes Ruff, the sports anchor for Channel 4 News.  Ruff presented on sportsmanship and being a captain.  Ruff also had many great experiences and stories to tell. 

It was very beneficial for these young students to attend and to be able to learn more about what it means to be a Captain!
