Dear Students and Parents,


Reminder - End of Second Term

Did you realize there are only six school days left in this term after Christmas Break?  Please check with teachers to get any missing work gathered, completed and turned in. The holiday break provides extra time if needed, to make up school work that could help raise a grade. Take advantage of the opportunity!


Way to Go Mustangs! - MJHS Annual Fundraiser Was a Great Success

Congratulations to our awesome students - together we raised almost $3000 that will now go toward several different causes. First, it will be used to fund our Sub for Santa project - Gifts and goodies are purchased for local kids so they can have a Christmas that they might not have had otherwise. Second, the funds are used to purchase blankets and activities packs for kids at the hospital - Thank you for your amazing support of this MJHS holiday tradition!

Dear Students and Parents,


Thanks Awesome PTO

MJHS has some amazing volunteers!  We want to thank the PTO and the wonderful parents that helped to feed our teachers and staff last week on a long day of Student Led Conferences Thursday, December 5th.  The teachers and staff enjoyed a delicious and filling meal and we want to thank all of those involved in making that happen.


Just TWO weeks until the Holidays - Let’s get those grades up

Remember our goal of having all grades Cs and above before the holidays - If you have any grade below a C please get with your teachers and visit with them about any work that needs to be turned in or re-done in order to show that you have learned the material at a higher level to bring your grades up! 


Come Be a Substitute Teacher at MJHS!

Parents: If you are willing to help us, we do have a real need for substitute teachers. So far this year, we have had many sub requests go unfilled. We are asking for local patrons of MJHS to help fill in. So that you are aware, subs are able to choose the location(s) where they are willing to sub - meaning if you only want to sub for MJHS you can. You are also able to choose your days of availability, with no minimum commitment per month when arranged by MJHS with Kelly Services. If you are willing to apply to be a substitute teacher, please visit the Utah Kelly Educational Staffing webpage at or call our awesome secretary, Theresa Carey here at MJHS to get more information about helping us out as a substitute teacher.

One hundred percent of these monies fund teacher grants to help supplement equipment and supplies for students.

Dear Students and Parents,


Upcoming Parent/Teacher Conferences 

P/T Conferences will be held next week on Thursday, December 5th, from 3:30 – 8:00 p.m.  This is a great time to visit with teachers and discuss how your student is doing in class. All teachers will be in the gym - As you come in, please stop at the front office to pick up a copy of your student's midterm grade report from the counselors.  


MJHS Annual Charitable Fundraiser

Giving is not just about making a donation, it’s about making a difference. Starting next Monday, December 2nd and continuing through Friday, December 13th we will be accepting donations for this year's fundraiser. Fundraiser proceeds will go to Sub for Santa as well as Blankets and activities packs for kids at the hospital. Every day throughout the fundraiser we will randomly draw students who have donated at least $5 to get prizes.


Utah State Math Contest

Every year, students in grades 7-12 have an opportunity to participate in the Utah State Math Contest.  This year, the contest is being held at USU Eastern on March 4, 2020. We would like to put together a math team to participate. If you are interested in participating, please come to room 204 on Thursday, December 5th during Flex. For more information visit with Mr. Peterson.


C’s B’s and A’s Before the Holidays

Mid-Term is tomorrow and then the Thanksgiving Holiday is upon us - be sure to get your make-up work done and use Flex time wisely. The goal is to have all C’s B’s and A’s before the Holidays! - Remember, you can earn cash prizes if all of your grades are C or above - Here’s how it will work... Every Friday we will randomly select six students (two per grade level) we will look up their grades and if they have only C’s and above they will win five dollars. If the student we looked up has a deficient grade the prize rolls over to the next Friday and a student could win ten dollars. So, get caught up and stay caught up because this contest will continue every Friday until Christmas. - Good Luck!

MMHS Softball will be holding a camp for students between the ages 10-14 (4th to 8th grade) on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 9am - 4pm.  The registration fee - $40.00. Please register at  Flyers are available in the front office for more information.

Attached is a flyer for a national video contest for K-12 grades that the Utah County Health Department is helping to promote and we would love for your students to have the chance to participate. Entries are due mid-January and the winning videos will be promoted during National Poison Prevention Week, which is in March. Here is the link to the video contest. There are different levels of awards, but the grand prize is $500 and a trip to Washington DC. It would be great for kids/teens in our county to be represented nationally for the contest.
