For the month of January Ms. Heaton’s classes had a reading contest to see who could read the most pages for the month. Most of the students did an outstanding job and many of the classes where very close. Reading is one of the most important skills that students need to be successful in the real world. With this contest Ms.
Mapleton Jr. High School is pleased to announce the January 2013 Students of the Month. Each academic area selects one outstanding student per grade level to represent their department for student of the month. In order to be selected these students must show superior academic achievement along with exceptional citizenship. The MJHS students of the month were invited to a pizza party to celebrate this fantastic accomplishment. The students of the month for January are (listed by academic area):
CTE- Amy Williamson, Aaron Andrew, Nicole Trapnel, Colby Gillies, Travis Farley

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.
On Wednesday January 16 all the wrestlers from Nebo district converged on MJHS for the district individual wrestling championships.
In an effort to help students understand the importance of being a respectful citizen and respecting their environment the administration has decided to have a “clean it up Campaign.
Congratulations to the Mapleton Junior High wrestling team for winning the Nebo District Team championship.
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.
On Wednesday, December 14th, Mapleton Jr. High had our annual science fair. There were many great projects this year. Thank you to all who came and participated in the event! The following students placed and will take their project to the Nebo School District Science Fair coming in February.
