The Mustang Charitable Fundraiser recently finished up by raising $3479.20 that will now go toward three different causes. First, it was used last week to fund our Sub for Santa project - Student government students went shopping and bought gifts for local kids so they can have a christmas that they might not have had. Second, we will be buying fleece and tying the ends to make blankets for Utah Valley Hospital Primary Children's Network in Provo.

The faculty and staff at Mapleton Junior High are amazing. The choice was very difficult because every teacher here at Mapleton makes a difference in the lives of the students we teach. I have been told that the person I am nominating has never received the Spirit of the Mustang, even with all his years here at Mapleton Junior High. He quietly goes about doing his work and changing the lives of the students.
