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.

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.

Roller Coaster Lab

Mr. Moss

Have you ever wanted to design a roller coaster?  Ms. Hammari's classes recently put their knoweldge of potential and kinetic energy to the test designing the most extreme roller coasters possible.  Instead of metal and wheels the students used tubing and a ball bearing to test their designs.  Their goal was to get the ball bearing to the end of the "roller coaster" using the force of gravity and fighting the effect of friction.  We are so proud of our students and the creativity they demonstrate through all their projects here at MJHS!

American Mathematics Competition 8

Ms. Spencer

“It’s early in the season, but Mapleton Junior High Mathletes are already bringing home awards.  In the first challenge of the season, the American Mathematics Competition 8 (AMC 8), 14 students on MJHS MathTeam were among nearly 100,000 middle schoolers across the nation to compete in a 25 question, 40 minute problem solving contest.  Our team, consisting of the three highest scores from the school, posted a team score of 58 (out of 75), which was enough to earn the School Merit Roll award, the second highest school award available.  Eighth grader, Tyler Jackson, lead the way with 24 of 25, and a spot on the Distinguished Honor Roll, an honor reserved for the top 1% of all students.  Eighth grader, Morgan Boring also contributed a respectable 20 of 25 and made the Honor Roll representing the top 5% of all students.  Other students competing were 8th graders Owen Memmott, Joshua Jackson, Jared Hardy, Jay Griggs, Miles Hancock, and Morgan Honsvick, and 7th graders Daniel Christiansen, Parker Jones, Spencer Smith, David Halverson, Benjamin Jensen, and Darin Briggs.

With these results, MJHS MathTeam ranks 4th among all Utah Junior High Schools and 1st in Utah County.  We also have 2 students in the top 10 individually in the state.  Next up, the MathTeam will have a smaller contingency compete in the AMC 10 on January 30th, as the rest of the team prepares for the MathCounts Chapter contest on February 1st.”

Magical Staircase Goal Challenge Winners!

Mr. Moss

Rachel Johnston and Ava Clanton participated and won our recent magical staircase goal challenge.  All our students here at MJHS were challenged to think of a large goal they had set for themselves for the new year and then break that goal down into smaller "steps" that they could use to reach their overall larger goal (hence the magical staircase).  We had over 70 students participate in the challenge and Rachel and Ava won a custom MJHS beanie and a treat when their names were randomly drawn from the group of participants in the challenge.  We look forward to a great second semester and great 2020 here at MJHS where students are setting and working hard towards their goals.  Go MUSTANGS!
