MJHS Foods Class Makes Pretzels

Submitted by cathy.page on Wed, 11/06/2013 - 12:05

This past week, Mrs. Woodfield's Foods Classes learned how to make Soft Pretzels.  We were fortunate to have Miss Heaton, one of our great English Teachers, help out with the demonstration of how pretzels are prepared, twisted and baked.  Miss Heaton worked in a Pretzel store at the mall for a couple of years.  We made a video of her presentation so all the classes could learn these techniques.  The students did an amazing job of preparing the pretzels!  To try these at home, or to view all the recipes used in the Foods Classes, go to the Teacher Websites, and find Mrs.

DISTRICT CHAMPS - MJHS Girls Tennis 2013/2014

What an incredible season!  15 girls were taken up from the different high schools, so we had lots of opportunity for girls who would never get a chance, and did they ever prove they can hold their own.  What an incredible season for all levels of play.  I have never seen a group of athletes work so hard to improve their abilities.  During the season, Kaylee Whiting lost her father to cancer.  This really challenged the girls mentally.  They started pulling together and functioning as a unit.  Team play won them another District Title.  I am so proud of how hard they worked, their sportsman

Recently, the 7th grade Utah Studies students completed a unit of study about the 5 Native Tribes of Utah. After learning about the culture of the Natives, they were able to compare the culture of the Natives to their own culture. They were able to draw symbols that represented the Natives on one side and symbols that represented themselves on the other side. These students did a fantastic job! We are so proud of the hard work and effort they are putting into this project! The students are as follows:

The 8th grade US History students have recently completed a unit of study about exploration. During this unit, the students completed a brochure that would entice early Europeans to come to the newly discovered Americas. It was a horrible journey with a high probability of death so they had to get creative! These students did a fantastic job with their brochures! They were creative and went above and beyond the expectations. Great Job! The students are as follows: Front row: Cayla Giles, Eric Legere, Valeria Andrade, Emma Scott, and Sierra Freeman.
