We thank and honor our veterans today and always. Here are some moments from our Veterans Day assembly today. Thank you everyone who made this assembly happen. It was a truly memorable experience for everyone who attended and participated.

Jason Cragun and Scout Troop 1461 finished their project last Tuesday. They had a great turnout and had about 60 current, former, and future Mustangs show up to help out, as well as some parents. They put in about 6 cubic yards of mulch and removed about 10 cubic yards of sod and dirt from around the trees. They put weed fabric and mulch around 29 trees and the MJHS welcome sign. The estimated total hours of labor involved are close to 150. 

Thank you for all of the hard work that went into giving our school a real face lift. It looks amazing!

Both the boy and girls cross country had a fantastic season. At our district championships last weekend the girls Varsity and JV teams both took 1st place. This is the second undefeated, back to back district championship win for the girls. The boys took 2nd place by a razor thin 3 point margin behind Mt. Nebo. Some runners improved their personal best by a full minute on this final meet. Good job Cross Country for racing classy all season and representing our school and community very well.

Mrs. Clement Receives "Spirit of the Mustang"

Congratulations to Becky Clement on receiving the “Spirit of the Mustang” award for her outstanding service to the students of MJHS. This is what Mrs. Carey, her nominator had to say about Mrs. Clement.

Becky has the one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know.  No matter how crazy her day is she always has a smile on her face.  You can often hear her ask others how they are doing or how their day is going.   If I need help covering a class, she is always there.

Becky’s job is not the easiest.  It’s time consuming and takes a great deal of patience.   She is always looking for ways to help her students feel success as well as making them feel important.  I have watched her numerous times take an upset student and calm him or her down, sometimes by just listening.  Becky is there to encourage them when they feel discouraged.  I have seen Becky give up her lunch or go buy a lunch for one of her students she knows came to school hungry.    Becky knows that for some of her students, school may be the one positive in their day, so she showers them with love and attention.   For all these reasons and many, many more, I would like to present Becky the “Spirit of the Mustang”.

Fall Band Concert a Resounding Success

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.
