It was Spirit Week this week at Mapleton Junior High. Spirit Week is one of the very best traditions we have at MJHS. Everyday has a different theme. Monday was Spirit Day. Spirit day allowed the students to show their school spirit. They did this by wearing our school’s colors and showing their Mustang pride. Tuesday was Tie Day. On tie day students were able to wear their favorite tie. There were crazy ties, funny ties, and elegant ties. Wednesday was Wacky Hair Day. Students came with the wackiest hair they could think of.
Mapleton Junior High School has had a busy week. While it was a short week due to the Labor Day holiday it wasn’t short on events.
The MJHS Cross Country team had their first meet of the year at Spanish Fork Junior High on Thursday September 10th. It was a district wide meet with some tough competition.

Mapleton Junior High School’s Service Learning class started five years ago and has already changed the lives of many--both the students and the members of the community that they have served. Mrs. Robyn Card, the teacher of this class, provides the opportunity for kids to learn the benefits and value of service. This class is truly out to make a difference in society and the lives of others – especially those who take the class.
