Mrs. Capell's 8th Honors Math class recently ran a great scavenger hunt math race at Mt. Nebo Junior High. The hallways were abuzz with teams of students working together to solve problems. Students were required to solve math problems to get additional clues, and additional math problems. The team who solved all the equations first was the winner. From the front office, to the gyms, the excitement was infectious. These kids love math! Thanks for the fun Mrs. Capell.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Show Mt. Nebo Your Love PTA fundraiser. It’s not too late to send donations in. We will use the funds for teacher grants, to feed the teachers during parent teacher conferences and teacher appreciation week.
Thanks again for your support!
Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Maple Mountain High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn student’s college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

Students have been sending Val-O-Grams to one another for only .50 cents! They go to Mr. Buck's room to sign up and pay, then the service learning classes deliver the val-o-grams all over the school to students. Parents can also do this for their students if they would like, just make payment in the front office. All the proceeds are being dontated to Primary Children's Hospital. The last day for Val-O-grams is Wednesday.
FFA had some students had some awesome success on Friday. The proficiency award program recognizes students for the skills they have developed through their Supervised Agriculture Experience (where they take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in a real world setting). In January 11 of our students were named Area Winners (our version of region).
Britton Redd: Agricultural Processing, Ethan Von Hoene: Agricultural Sales - Entrepreneurship, Tell Orton: Agricultural Services, Stran Sorensen: Beef Production - Placement, Stran Sorensen: Diversified Agriculture, Kacie Jones: Diversified Horticulture, Kalley Stubbs: Nursery Operations, Porter Olsen: Poultry Production, Brooke Voorhees: Sheep Production, Kacie Jones: Vegetable Production, and Lorin Wyss: Veterinary Science. These students then moved on to the state competition which was held February 9. We were fortunate enough to have 8/9 students (8/11 projects) that were named state winners and will now move on to Nationals. The others all placed second. This is 20% of the total winners from the state! This is a pretty awesome accomplishment for our students. Britton Redd: Agricultural Processing, Tell Orton: Agricultural Services, Stran Sorensen: Beef Production - Placement, Kalley Stubbs: Nursery Operations, Porter Olsen: Poultry Production, Brooke Voorhees: Sheep Production, Kacie Jones: Vegetable Production, and Lorin Wyss: Veterinary Science. These students will be rewarded at the State FFA Convention coming up March 8-10 in Cedar City. Way to go FFA!! You are ROCK SOLID!!
Valentines Day is fast approaching. Just a reminder that we will follow the same guidelines as previous years. There will be no deliveries during school hours on Valentines Day. Thank you for allowing our students to succeed with fewer interruptions.
