Angst Movie - Anxiety is Treatable

Maple Mountain High School News - Fri, 10/12/2018 - 1:31pm

MMHS Parents,

We are pleased to announce an upcoming event at our school designed to help our students, parents and us as educators.  We will be showing the "Angst Movie" to help our school community become better aware of the growing issues surrounding anxiety and provide some resources to help.  Link: https://angstmovie.com/

Here's our timeline:

1. Monday, October 29 - Teachers will watch the movie during school collaboration and receive training afterward.

2. Monday, October 29, 7:00 p.m. - Parents (with or without their teenage children) are invited to a community showing in the MMHS auditorium with a panel question/answer session afterward.

3. Friday, November 2 - Students at the school will attend an assembly to watch the movie in the auditorium with an informational session afterward.

We anticipate that this will be a positive, shared experience for our school community and hope it will raise awareness as well as help us address issues better. Part of the real power of this movie is if both the parents and the students see it. It has valuable information for both!

All of the Nebo high schools are showing this movie this year. It is well done. The movie explains what is happening with our brain, and our physical responses when anxious. The information comes from current scientific research and is presented by qualified therapists who explain the difference between stress and anxiety as well as provide coping strategies.

We sincerely hope that our parents can attend this movie screening and believe it will be well worth your time.

Six athletes from Payson High qualified for the Utah High School Boys Golf Tournment, which is the most to qualify in years. Tag Davis, Cameron Stone, Brennan Jensen, Zac Nielson, Brock Ramos and Dallin Benson each made it to the tournament after a great season of play. “I think it’s a pretty great thing to be a part of, to represent the school in that way,” said Jensen.

All those who made it to state were happy to be there no matter the outcome. “It felt good being a sophomore being there the first year, and knowing I’ll have more experience the next couple years,” said Davis.

“This team of seniors that we have, have been playing for three or four years together, and we finally made it, and it was just really cool to do it with those guys,” Jensen expressed.

Even though they didn’t win, the team had a good time and a good experience. “Getting to see everyone and just kind of figure out where you stand,” Stone said about his favorite experience at state. The team also had other moments outside of playing that were their favorites too. “Getting to stay in the hotel with all the guys, and messing around,” said Davis.

Congratulations to those who worked hard this season, and to those who made it to state!

Shakespeare Competition

Day One:

We left at 9:30 on Thursday and after a two and a half hour bus ride we got to SUU (Southern Utah University) for a tour of the campus.  After that, we went to the gift shop, took some pictures, then went to the hotel and chilled. 

 Another bus ride took us to the Tuacahn Center for the Arts, but this one was only a hour long.  We saw “Matilda.”  It was amazing--lots of twists I was not expecting.  Overall I had a fun time.

 We drove back to our hotel and “slept”.

 Day Two: 

We woke up, got some hotel breakfast, and left for SUU where we had the opportunity to go to some fun classes with different high school ensemble performers. At about 3:30, after watching Diamond Fork’s Ensemble performance, we headed back to our hotel to get ready for our performance. We ran through our scene adding things to make it better. Spanish Fork Junior High’s Ensemble (featuring yours truly) did amazing! 

 After our performance, we went back to our hotel and practiced our individual events for tomorrow.  A lot of other kids went down to the pool where it got a little too loud. Then we got back to our rooms and slept.

 Day Three:

 After the last night in the hotel, we ate breakfast, got our stuff together, and left for the last day of competitions-- the individual events (duo/trio scenes and monologues).  Everyone did fantastic!

 Buuuut …..There was a lot of walking between campus buildings.

 After everything was said and done, we took a short walk to a restaurant called the Pastry Pub which had lots of varieties of food and pastries! I got a Quesadilla, an Italian soda, and a Canoli.  Everyone’s food looked really good.

 After that, it was time for the award ceremony where, unfortunately, we didn't place top three in anything—or so we thought.  Afterward, we climbed back on the bus, tired from the long trip.  After another two and a half hour long bus ride, we finally got back at about 11:20.  We unloaded the bus and went home after a long day.

 The Monday After the Competition:

During fifth period, Miss Holley got a call saying the judges messed up the overall total for our school!  It turns out we got third place over all the schools!

Mrs. Harmer is at it again!  First her student made Roman Temples out of school supplies.  Now they are building aqueducts out junk!  As you can tell by the photos, engagement was high as students learned how the ancient Romans got their water.

“My world history class built Roman aqueducts out of trash today,” reported Mrs. Harmer, “and they had an awesome time. They had to build it over 2 desks and have a ping pong ball go through it and land on a paper plate at the bottom without falling off. This simulated Roman aqueducts.”

Active, participatory learning like this might make some adults want to go back to Jr. High!

After eight years, Mr. Payson contest returns to PHS

The drama department is bringing back something a little bit unexpected to the students and faculty of Payson High. In the past, there have been many Miss Payson pageants with winners who have successfully represented the community. However, this year, the Mr. Payson competition has arisen, to wow and inspire the hearts of Payson High School.

This isn’t the first time Mr. Payson has been displayed. Jamilah McMurdie, famed math teacher and former cheer coach, explains that “Mr. Payson used to be a super big tradition around here, but it hasn’t happened for about eight years, so the drama department decided to bring it back.”

When brainstorming ideas for their annual fundraiser, the PHS drama department brought this historical idea to the table. Rock White, prominent drama teacher of Payson High, said that, “We were trying to think of a fun way to involve all the clubs, and to do an activity that would combine us for one performance...we have the cheerleaders that have choreographed the group number, we have brought in guest judges from the community.”

There are ten young men from PHS in the running for the title of Mr. Payson. When asked about why they decided to run for Mr. Payson, Logan Bennett, a senior, said, “I would be beyond inspired, honored everything [if I won]... I’m very spirited as it is and I might as well get the title.” Spencer Nelson, a senior, declared, “I just love this school and want to represent it well and I just want to have fun too.”

Another senior, Travis Pitcher, said, “I’m so thrilled. I’d love to leave a legacy for my younger brother when he comes to this school.”

White kindly announced during today’s Best Legs competition, “The actual Mr. Payson is Friday night at seven o'clock in the auditorium.  It is five dollars for students and six dollars general admission. It’s going to be a wonderful night celebrating all their talents and strengths of the men of Payson.” Come and support the candidates of Mr. Payson in their worthy goals.
