Need for Substitute Teachers

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. If you are willing to apply to be a substitute teacher, please visit the Utah Kelly Educational Staffing webpage at http://www.kesutah.appone.com or call our awesome secretary, Theresa Carey here at MJHS to get more information about helping us out as a substitute teacher. Thanks,Nate

“Battle of the Books”

Mapleton Junior High School

“Battle of the Books”

“America’s Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students in grades 3-12.  The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while completing with peers.”

We are excited to kick off our third year of Battle of the Books at Mapleton Junior High School!  Mrs. Marett will introduce the voluntary program to all seventh and eighth graders during your English class orientation. Ninth graders are also invited to participate.  

Interested students will be part of a team of 4 or 5 students.  Each team member will choose 4 to 5 books to read; however, we encourage students to read as many books as they would like from the list.  There are 20 books on the list. In early January 2020, teams will come together for a game show style tournament during school where they will work as a team to answer questions about the books on the list.  (See reverse side for book list) Students do not have to read every book on the list; however, the more books each person on the team reads, the better chance they have when answering questions in a battle.  

The questions are written like this example.

Question:  In what book is there a dog named Watch?  Answer: Boxcar children by Warner

(The answer is always a title and author's’ last name)

Students may form their own teams.  Teams can consist of seventh, eighth and ninth graders. They must turn in their signed permission slips (http://mjhs.nebo.edu/sites/mjhs.nebo.edu/files/Battleofthebooks.pdf) stapled together with other students they would like on their team (up to 5 per team).  You DO NOT need to form a full team to submit your permission slip; we will form teams for all students that do not have a full team request or friend preference.  

We have five copies of each book in our school library and digital copies on Overdrive that students will be able to check out.  Some of the books are also available at your public library.   

Students interested in participating must return the signed permission slip to Mrs. Marett in the library by Friday, October 4!

We need volunteers to help run battles during school hours one week in January.  If you would like to help out during that week, please list your name, phone number, and email address.  

Questions...call or email!

Mrs. Rowley

Would you be willing to give up everything you have for a chance to become Rich, Famous or Secure a spot in the afterlife?

In U.S. History Mrs. Rowley's class has been learning about the 3 main motivations for European Exploration. Students created a brochure to entice Europeans to take the risks. Highlighting the possibility of a greater reward to offset the possibility of losing everything even facing death for the prize. The Students did a Marvelous job on their brochures! Please congratulate them on a job well done when you see them.
