In continuation with Mapleton Junior High School’s Anti-Bullying campaign students had the opportunity to participate in a two-day mini venture. With messages of hope and change students learned how to use their influence of others for good. Inspiration came from athletes both famous and of peer age in how one person truly can make a difference. Students were able to contribute their thoughts, feelings and actions in activities and through discussion. Each student at MJHS took a pledge to make a difference in the lives of those around them.

Mapleton Junior raises big money for “Shop with a Cop”

Submitted by jeffrey.nelson on Fri, 01/04/2013 - 10:26

The students at Mapleton Junior High had the spirit of Christmas this holiday season. The student government began a fund raiser to help people in need enjoy the Christmas holidays. They set a goal of 2,000 dollars to be raised by the students. Thanks to the generosity of the students, teachers, and parents of the school we were able to raise over 4,200 dollars to benefit the Shop with a Cop program. The money was able to help several families in the area enjoy a wonderful Christmas which otherwise they may not have had that opportunity.
