Mock trial

Mustangs in Mr. Stevenson’s and Mrs. Rowley’s US History classes had the opportunity to participate in a mock trial this week.  Students have been learning about the three branches of government, the Bill of Rights and the US legal system. Being able to experience a mock trial provided the opportunity for students to apply and extend their learning in an engaging and interactive way.  Each class prepared for their mock trial, with individual students assigned as the judge, bailiffs, prosecution and defense attorneys, witnesses, jury members and even reporters. The students’ preparation for their roles was impressive and commendable. We feel fortunate to have such amazing educators at MJHS, who provide memorable learning experiences for our students.

Our amazing student body here at MJHS is living up to our values of being Respectful, Responsible and Resilient!  We recently challenged our student body to respect and rember the elders of our community by creating Valentine's Day cards for each resident at the Spring Gardens Senior Living Center.  Our students made over 2,000 cards for the residents and a small group of students were able to deliver the cards with flowers and some chocolates.  We don't know who had bigger smiles, our students or the residents but it was an amazing experience all the way around.  We want to thank the families and parents of our student body for helping to forge such amazing students and we are proud of our MUSTANGS!

Dear Students and Parents,

 

Changes in Schedule for Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday THIS Week

Attention Parents: Please be aware that P/T conferences are coming up this Thursday Feb. 20th. We will be trying something new this conference with teachers available in the gym for the first half of the evening and in their classroom the second half, with a dinner break for teachers between. We hope that by doing this teachers will be able to eat dinner at a more normal dinner hour as well as allow parents wanting a more private conversation to occur in each classroom. The plan is that teachers will be in the gym from 3:00-5:30 and then begin to transition to classrooms. Half the teachers will eat dinner and go to their classrooms at 5:30 leaving half still in the gym and then at 6:00 the other half will eat dinner and move to their classrooms. So, plan accordingly - between 3:00 and 6:00 teachers will be in the gym and between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. teachers will be in their classrooms. We hope it goes smoothly as we decide if this is something we will do again.

Kids Who Count - Early Intervention Services for Nebo Families

 

Since 1986, Kids Who Count has provided Early Intervention services to families of young children residing in the Nebo School District boundaries. We’ve helped thousands of families and children and we can help you. If you are concerned about your baby or toddler’s development or had a medical professional talk to you about some milestones your child hasn’t yet reached, you may be eligible for early intervention services. The purpose of Early Intervention is to enhance early growth and development in infants and toddlers under three, who have developmental delays or disabilities. Anyone can make a referral to receive a full assessment of your child’s health and developmental status at no cost. If you’re concerned about your infant or toddler, don’t hesitate to contact us. And, we now offer Autism Services for children 2 and older. Visit https://kidswhocount.org/ for more information. We are here to help!

Mapleton Junior High MathTeam Wins Again!
In just their second year competing, MJHS MathTeam beat out all the other Junior High teams in Utah county to claim first place at the MathCounts chapter contest in Highland on February 1st.  The written contest, consisting of two individual rounds and a team round, challenged the students ability to problem-solve using algebra, geometry, combinatorics and number theory. The team, led by top-scorer, 8th grader Tyler J. and team captain 8th grader Morgan B., posted a season high 40.5 points.  Tyler also took 1st individually, while Morgan got 3rd, and 7th grader Daniel C. placed 5th overall.  Two other MJHS students, 8th grader Jared H. and 7th grader Spencer S., were just outside of the top 10.  Other students competing were 8th graders Owen M., Josh J., Morgan H., Jay G., and 7th grader Parker J.  All 10 Mapleton students did great, and represented the school admirably.  With the victory, the team and top scoring individuals will prepare for the State MathCounts competition held in Salt Lake on March 7th.  Way to go!

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Safety Concerns

Because of ongoing safety concerns and some recent “close calls” as students exit cars and walk through traffic, we remind parents to please use caution in our drive through lane and parking lots and remember to yield to students in the crosswalks. The drop-off/pick-up zones are designed to facilitate a circular traffic pattern with all traffic exiting through the east exit onto 400 E. When followed, this pattern makes our schools drop-off/pick-up zones much safer. Your help with this important safety issue is appreciated.

 

Please Note B-Ball Game Date Changes

Due to the snow day on Monday - The B-Ball District Championship Tournament has been rescheduled for a Wednesday Quarter-final, Thursday Semi-final, and Championship game on Friday. These changes have been made below in the up-coming events section of this email.
