The volleyball team is putting donations together for our Thursday night breast cancer awareness game against Provo. We invite everyone to come out and support the volleyball team as they support those who have overcome and are overcoming their fight against breast cancer.

We will be having a dig meter, and are asking people to pledge anywhere from 25 cents to 1$ per dig that the varsity team gets during their game. We will have a sign up at the door and we will collect money during the game for all this that would like to participate. The foundation we are donating the money to is called National Breast Cancer Foundation. All those who donate will receive a pink breast cancer awareness wrist band.

Thank you so much for your support! See you all on Thursday at 6:30!

Monday Make-Up

Maple Mountain High School News - Tue, 10/10/2017 - 8:47am

Dear Students and Parents,

This Monday, October 16 will be our first Monday Make-up Day. We will have one per term. We will shorten the school day and excuse students at 1:10 pm. Teachers will be in their rooms from 1:10-2:30pm helping students. Buses will still run as usual on Mondays at 1:45pm. Parents can visit with teachers on Monday also. We are anticipating that it will be pretty hectic in the classrooms for the first 60 minutes, but it will hopefully calm down the last 20 minutes or so if you want to drop by then you are welcome or you may email the teachers.

Monday is also Mega Detention. If your student has any NCs this term or from previous terms they will want to sign-up for detention. To sign-up students pay $5 in the finance office to be added to the detention list. Students will serve 3 hours in the detention lab (from 2pm-5pm) and receive 5 hours of credit.

Last, I want you to know how much I love working at MMHS and spending time with students—your children. Please follow me on Instagram @principal_nielsen. I post “what’s happening” at school. And please like us on FACEBOOK!

Thanks for your support and GO EAGLES!!

Old World Meets New World in US History

The US often leads the way when it comes to innovation and exporting foods and products uniquely American.  But that hasn’t always been the case, as Ms. Harmers 8th grade US history student recent discovered.

They’ve been studying something called the Colombian Exchange.  According to a page on the Gettysburg College website, “The Columbian Exchange refers to a period of cultural and biological exchanges between the New and Old Worlds.  Exchanges of plants, animals, diseases and technology transformed European and Native American ways of life. Beginning after Columbus' discovery in 1492 the exchange lasted throughout the years of expansion and discovery.  The Columbian Exchange impacted the social and cultural makeup of both sides of the Atlantic. Advancements in agricultural production, evolution of warfare, increased mortality rates and education are a few examples of the effect of the Columbian Exchange on both Europeans and Native Americans.”

Ms. Harmer's US History classes topped off their study by competing in a relay race to decide which foods and other products belong in the old world and new world.  What an engaging way to learn!  That’s living the Lobo Way!

Ms. Goates and Mr. Hallam’s 9th grad Bio classes have been learning about the structure of animal and plant cells. Over the past few weeks, students have been creating cell models from materials they find at home and bringing them to school to show their understanding.

However, today students took students put their knowledge on public display in the form of chalk drawings on the sidewalks outside Spanish Fork Junior High.

Mr. Hallam and Ms. Goates are known for their innovative and engaging teaching. If you’re driving by SFJH over the weekend, pull in and take a look at the sidewalks. You might just learn something about the anatomy of a cell.

Students Prove They’re in Top Condition

Michael Jordan once said, “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.”  Students in Mr. Johnson weight training/body conditioning class are learning that if you set goals, expect something of yourself, success follows.

This past week has seen classes competing in many areas including arm wrestling, leg wrestling, bench press, shuttle runs, standing and running long jumps, as well as many others skills. “All class members competed well and had a great time,” said Coach Johnson.

Morley Bennett came out on top of his class while Julia Vasquez, Briggs Callister, Ammon Beck and Itzel Valdez came out on top of their classes! These students have taken to heart the advice of UCLA’s late great coach John Wooden gave his basketball players:  “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
