Maple Mountain High School earns ENERGY STAR certification!

Maple Mountain High School News - Tue, 04/10/2018 - 8:53am

 We’re excited to announce that Maple Mountain High School has earned ENERGY STAR® certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)!

The next time you visit, check out the little blue label on display at our entrance – it represents proven, verified superior energy performance over a 12-month period. In fact, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide!

Thank you for being a part of our sustainability story by taking simple actions to cut energy waste – like turning off the lights in empty rooms, and reporting energy waste to our facility. 

Here’s to another year of cutting energy waste, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and doing our part to protect the environment – together!

Principal Moment

Welcome back from Spring Break!  We are now officially in the season of Spring.   This also means we are in the season of field trips.  Over the years I have been on many – here are some universal field trip truths:

  1. When you send home permission slips, you will never get 100 percent of them back by the due date.
  2. When it is time to board the bus, one child will have to go to the bathroom.
  3. When you say, “I just asked everyone to go,” he will answer, “I didn’t have to go then.”
  4. As soon as he returns, five others will have to go, too.
  5. Immediately after the bus pulls away from the school, at least one child will say, “When will we get there?”
  6. Ten minutes after you arrive, one child will ask, “When’s lunch?”
  7. The teacher will spend the entire trip counting students’ heads to make sure everyone is there.  (This is like playing Duck, Duck, Goose. For six hours.)
  8. If there is a gift shop, they will ask if they can buy something.
  9. The farther you walk with your students in a line, the more spread out it will become.
  10. When it’s time to hop back onto the bus, several students will try to renegotiate the seating arrangement.
  11. Upon returning to the school, half the class will be asleep.

We are hoping to assist a Riverview family who lost their home to a fire.  We are having a Penny War; April 9th – 20th.  All of the money raised will go to the Bluth Family. ​

Kindergarten Registration - It’s Not Too Late

Kindergarten registration was held last week.  If you have forgotten, it’s not too late, your child can still come to school next year!! To register your child please go to  We will need a copy of birth certificate, immunizations, and proof of residency.

Year End Testing

End of year testing is upon us. I recently read the following in Business Insider, written by a principal in Singapore: "I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well. But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an artist, who doesn't need to understand Math… There is an entrepreneur, who doesn't care about History or English literature…There is a musician, whose Chemistry marks won't matter…There's an athlete…whose physical fitness is more important than Physics… If your child does get top marks, that's great! But if he or she doesn't…please don't take away their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it's OK, it’s just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score…you love them and will not judge them. Please do this, and when you do… watch your children conquer the world. One exam or low mark won't take away…their dreams and talent. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers…are the only happy people in the world."

PTA Spring Carnival

The PTA Spring Carnival will be held on Monday, April 30th. The Carnival was a great success last year and we are anticipating much success this year!

To ensure the success of the Carnival we need YOUR help.

 The following three areas are the areas where we need immediate assistance.


The roles identified below need to be filled ASAP (fortunately much of the leg work has been completed already) – WE NEED HELP!:

1.  Activities Committee Chair (committee members will be needed too, but the Chair is crucial) This committee will take the lead of the activities component of the Carnival. We have potential vendors identified already. We need your help making the carnival FUN.

2.  Food Committee Chair (committee members will be needed too, but the Chair is crucial)  This committee will oversee the food component of the Carnival by determining what will be served, as well as overseeing the preparation and distribution of food items.

3.  Marketing Committee Chair (a committee member has volunteered, but the Chair is crucial) This committee will assist in providing already created materials to teachers and parents through print media and social media.

4.  Ticket Committee Chair (committee members have already volunteered) This committee will oversee the presale of tickets, distribution of tickets, and ticketing at the event.

5.  Donations Committee Members (a volunteer is already chairing this committee) This committee will assist in contacting businesses to seek donations for silent auction baskets, prizes and food. Materials are already created to assist with asking for donations.


If you know individuals who manage or own local businesses and would be willing to ask them for a donation to the school, please let us know immediately! We will provide tax receipts to businesses.


If you have an item or skill that could be added to a gift basket that you are willing to donate, please let us know immediately.


If you have access to the following activities and can donate them or help provide them at a discounted rate, please let us know immediately:

  • Ponies – Pony Rides

To ensure the Carnival is a success it requires MANY volunteers. We will have a variety of volunteer needs and shifts, so if you will have some availability on April 30th and are willing to help out – please let us know immediately.

I am excited for the opportunity to continue to help our school develop and provide outstanding opportunities to our children. Your consideration and support of the Carnival by volunteering, donating to, and attending, is greatly appreciated.

They dressed up as their great American and had their parents and students from other classes visit and learn about their great American. It was a very fun and educational experience for the students.
