The MJHS Service Learning students had the amazing opportunity to visit Central Utah Veterans Home. The students tied fleece blankets and performed a mini talent show to demonstrate our love and appreciation for the military men and women who served our country so bravely. Included in the visit, students helped veteran residents make puzzles out of popsicle sticks, shared life stories, and enjoyed a treat.

Spirit of the Mustang Award - May 2016

Submitted by andrea.pond on Tue, 05/03/2016 - 10:06



I would like to recognize Bonny Groneman as having the spirit of a Mustang.


Bonny is an advocate for all students. In every collaboration meeting I have been in with Bonny she is always sharing ideas based upon the needs of the students. She not only focuses on the needs of the low achieving students but also remembers the students who excel in their subjects. She reminds us that students are individuals that each need personal nurture and care.
