Recently students from the Spanish Fork Junior High School Orchestra visited the sixth-graders at Brockbank. Ms. Angela Harman, the orchestra teacher, explained the program and explained all the different instruments to the six-grade students .

The MMHS Ellevés Drill Team competed at the Champions National Dance Competition held in Los Angeles, California on March 7, 2015. The team competed in the following categories: Military, Jazz Dance, Kick, and Hip Hop. 

The Ellevés placed 1st in Military, 2nd in Dance, 2nd in Kick, and 3rd in Hop Hop. Overall, they were 2nd in the medium team category. The Ellevés had a very successful competition season this year.

While in California, the Ellevés also had the opportunity to take classes at The Edge Performing Arts Studio. They took an open Jazz 3 class and had a private hip hop class. At Disneyland, the Ellevés participated in a private dance workshop from Shelly Nicols, who is a Disney choreographer and show director. All of the classes were very beneficial, motivating, and fun. 

Now the team will prepare for their annual showcase which will be held on May 1 in the MMHS auditorium. The showcase will feature all of the team’s competition routines as well as a few new routines. The new 2015-16 Ellevés will also perform. Plan now to attend and see some award-winning routines performed by an amazing team!

Frog Eyes!

DISSECTION - DAY 1: Evidence of teamwork and collaboration were apparent as Ms. Hanks' biology classes began dissecting frogs today in the science lab. The student group conversations were that of removing membranes, using the scalpal, probing the eye socket and cutting connective tissue. The first task was to examine the frogs and record findings such as size, color, and shape. The next task involved the removal the eyeball of the frog along with analysis, observation and recording of data. 

The students were highly engaged and curious. They discussed with each other, reviewed the text they were given, and asked questions of Ms. Hanks. Students were making inferences as they collected data, they were evaluating the conditions of the specimen. They were DOING science - and they looked as if they thoroughly enjoyed it!

Thanks, Ms. Hanks for the wonderful learning activity.

Maple Mountain High School News - Thu, 03/12/2015 - 3:08pm

Robert Nay was awarded the Philo T. Farnsworth Governor's Award at the Sterling Scholar Competition held at the LDS Conference Center Theater in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, March 10. This award is named after the father of television, Philo T. Farnsworth, and it is given to an outstanding Sterling Scholar in science.

Robert says, "Part of what makes computer technology so exciting for me is the speed at which it evolves: In the four short years since I created my first iPhone app, flash storage has become much cheaper, processing capabilities of mobile devices have dramatically increased and Internet-connected devices have become much more prevalent. It's difficult to predict what technology we'll be using in the future, but I look forward to being a part of its creation."

"My involvement in computer technology will allow me to have a meaningful career, and I will be able to use computers and programming to create solutions that will enrich my life and have a positive influence on the world."

On Friday, March 6th, 2015, representatives from King Arthur Flour came to SFJH and met with the seventh grade students in a CTE sponsored assembly.  Students learned the ins-and-outs of bread making and were given recipes, a dough scraper, and two 2 pound bags of flour.

Students were encouraged to go home and prepare a bread recipe for their families using one of the bags of flour.  They were asked to use the other bag to make a loaf of bread to share with Tabatha’s Way, a local agency that helps the needy in the Spanish Fork area.  Students were to bring their loaf on Monday so school administrators could take them to the Tabatha’s Way food pantry for distribution.

Monday morning, loaf of bread began to appear.  Mrs. Dobson’s students brought 63 loaves, as did Mrs. Myers classes.  Mr. Thacker’s classes donated 80 loaves, and Mr. Johnson’s students dropped off 74.  All told, 280 loaves of bread were delivered to Tabatha’s Way thanks to our awesome seventh-graders!
