Congratulations to our very own Ellizabeth Wheeler who is a 2016 CUSF Award winner! Ellie competed against hundreds of students across the state of Utah and was selected as the 3rd Place winner in the Biochemistry and Chemistry category. She had an amazing project and did wonderful work. I would attempt to explain her work but I would not do it justice, SO please ask Ellie to explain her project when you see her as she is a real expert!

Red Ribbon Week Assembly

Submitted by andrea.pond on Tue, 04/12/2016 - 13:38

This year, MJHS reignited their Service Learning class. Both 8th and 9th grade students registered in the class have had opportunities to serve the school and community. For example, the class joined the Miss America Pageant and Shoes 4 Love to run a school-wide shoe drive, collecting a total of 2,714 pairs of shoes. To help the school increase anti-drug awareness, Service Learning hosted a Red Ribbon Week. This included a culminating assembly with a visit from Utah County's Deputy Sean Carter and his amazing partner Havoc.
