We need you in dance next year!


Over the last nine years, we have started a tradition of excellence in the dance program at Maple Mountain High School.  Nearly 2000 students have performed with our dance classes and now it's your turn to be part of the tradition!

If you haven't signed up for a dance class next year, I strongly encourage you to consider adding one to your schedule.  At Maple Mountain, we have six fantastic dance classes to choose from: Social Dance 1, Social Dance 2, and classes that are part of the State and National Core Curriculum for dance education Dance 1, Dance 2, Dance 3/Dance Excel, and Dance Company.

 

Social Dance 1 and 2 classes emphasize mastery of movement, quality and style in basic ballroom dance.  Dance 1 and 2 are introductory and intermediate classes on different dance styles and dance techniques.  These are all semester classes and will fill either Fine Arts or elective PE credit requirements.

Incoming sophomores, juniors and seniors are also invited to audition for Dance 3/Dance Excel and Dance Company, the most advanced performing dance groups here at Maple Mountain.  These full year classes are designed to help students become better dancers, performers, and choreographers through the medium of creative, contemporary dance.  The Dance Company (MMDC) and Dance Excel both perform in concerts, assemblies, and adjudications.  For more information about auditions, and how to prepare, go to mmhsdance.weebly.com


Come and be part of the legacy of Maple Mountain Dance next year. We need awesome students to carry-on that tradition of excellence--and we know that you can be part of it!

See you soon!

The 8th grade US History classes learned more about important inventions and machines designed during the first Industrial Revolution by making their own.  Using everyday items such as boxes, toilet paper rolls, and egg cartons, students fashioned their own devices. This hands-on experience will help them remember important innovations like the sewing machine, telegraph, and cotton gin.

The Three Chairs

Sierra Bonita Elementary News - Tue, 02/27/2018 - 1:43pm

Students had a great assembly about bullying and ways to help each other. Students were told a story about The Three Chairs.

Chair #1: Good Example, helps others, takes the roll of "Roll Model/Witness/Example/Positive Leader"

Chair #2: Unsure, tends to follow chair #1, takes the roll of "Target". Targets cannot help being targeted. They are NOT at fault. They are NOT responsible for being targets. However, they can choose not to act like a victim. If a bully demands their lunch money, they don’t have to give it to him. If the bully wants to make them cry, then can hold their head up and be defiant. It takes courage to do the right thing.

Chair #3: Teases, unkind, takes the roll of the "Bully". A bully needs both a victim and spectators (audience). Change the bully, the bullying stops. If spectators step in to support the target, the bullying stops. If the target refuses to be a victim, the bullying stops (at least with this example).

YOU MATTER! BE A NEBO HERO!

Hello, Brockbank Families!

Thanks to you who have brought pennies to school!  Our grade level buckets are filling up and getting heavy!  We appreciate your support for our Kid Power fundraiser!  

Penny Wars:  Feb 20 – March 9
KIDS have the power to make a positive difference.  Please join the Kid Power committee at Brockbank Elementary to change the world.  Our project this year is to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.  This is the type that mostly affects children.  There are children in our school that deal with this disease.
Each grade will bring money to donate. All paper and silver coins in their cans will count for that grades total.  All the pennies put in that grade level can, will subtract from their total.  So put pennies in another classes can to stop them from beating your grade.  Put the silver and paper money in your class can to increase your total.  This is called a Penny War.  Our penny war will help find a cure for juvenile Diabetes.
We will start our project on February 20th and go through March 9th.  The grade level with the heaviest can on Feb 23 will get to have a dance party.  The grade level with the heaviest can on March 2 will get to run someone through their whip cream gauntlet.  The grade level that raises the most money by March 9 will get to have a flour bomb war.  This war is for good and we will have a lot of fun.  Start earning money to make a difference.

Dr. Seuss Day:  Our fun Dr. Seuss Day will be Friday, March 2nd!  The theme is “Grab your hat and read with the cat!”  Please send your child with a hat and a good book to read!  

SDD:  March 5th will be the day for our teachers to have a district development day.   We appreciate your support for these days when we can work together to have professional development.  Our bus students will be dismissed at 11:30 and our walking students will be dismissed at noon.  

Renaissance Fair:  March 7th will be our 6th Grade Renaissance Fair.  The 6th grade students have been working hard for this day and invite you to come from 12:00-2:00.    

Dads and Doughnuts:  March 9th will be an early morning for those who want to come out for a doughnut and to see all the great books at our Book Fair!  It will begin at 7:15.  The Book Fair will run from March 9-March 15th.

SEP Conferences:  Our last SEP Conference will be March 15th.  Our teachers will be sending home reminder notes of your scheduled time.  We look forward to celebrating all of your child’s accomplishments! 

Kindergarten PRE-Registration:  March 21st will be the day for our PRE-Registration for kindergarten students.  THIS IS NOT REGISTRATION FOR KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS.  We are just needing numbers so we can plan on class size and teachers.  Please make sure you come on that day if you have a child that will be in kindergarten for the 2018-19 school year.  Please spread the word to those who might have children this age!  

Math Lab:  Just a reminder that we have our Math Lab opened in the mornings before school, at 8:30.  Any student is welcome to come and practice math facts, use the online REFLEX program, or get help with math assignments!

High School Students Make Wishes Come True

Spanish Fork High School student council teams up with Make-A-Wish Utah for the 8th annual “Homeless for A Night” event to raise money to grant wishes for local children with life threatening conditions

Students at Spanish Fork High School and other high schools in Nebo School District will join together to celebrate life, raise money, and have a lot of fun during SFHS’s 8th annual “Homeless for a Night” on Friday, March, 2, 2018 at 6pm to 2am on Saturday, March 3, 2018. All money raised through this event and others will benefit Make-A-Wish Utah.

“Homeless for A Night” is an all-night charity fundraiser aimed at raising awareness and money for Make-A-Wish. The ultimate goal is to grant the wish of our 7-year-old “wish kid” Kinley. Participants at “Homeless for a Night” pay a registration fee to take part in fun events such as a concert featuring Utah band Foreign Figures, a dance, basketball, video games, a movie, and more. This event is meant to challenge the students physically by going without sleep while raising awareness and money for a good cause in a safe, secure, friendly environment.

“It’s been fun to see Homeless for a Night evolve into something bigger each year,” says Colby Roberts, SFHS student body officer in charge of service. “This means so much to us because we get to help non-profit organizations in our own fun way,” Roberts continues.

Kennedy Frame, student body president at SFHS says, “It’s time for the community to connect, but it’s also a time to party and have a blast. It’s really unifying and fun to watch everyone rally behind a local family and help their wish come true. The whole night brings a positive energy to our community.”

All the money raised through registration fees and corporate sponsors will be donated to Make-A-Wish Utah. Make-A-Wish is an organization that prides itself on giving hope and joy to children and families challenged by life threatening conditions. The money raised at Homeless for a Night will help grant the wish of a 7-year-old Spanish Fork child with leukemia. Her wish is to go to Walt Disney World to meet all of the princesses and visit Harry Potter World in Florida.

In addition to Homeless for a Night, SFHS is hosting a family movie night on February 28, 2018. Student council will be accepting donations from movie attendees.

Last year’s event brought nearly 1000 high school students out to Spanish Fork High School. Spanish Fork High School was then able to donate $15,000 to Make-A-Wish last year. Spanish Fork High School is located at 99 North 300 West in Spanish Fork. Homeless for a Night will be held in the main and auxiliary gyms.

Girls Who Code Kick Off in Utah

On Thursday, February 22nd, four girls from Spanish Fork Junior High travelled to Dell EMC in Draper to attend a kick off event for a club called, "Girls Who Code."  This event was attended by students in grades six through twelve from around the state of Utah. Reshma Saujani, the mastermind behind the program and author of the book Girls Who Code, spoke to the group about the importance of technology and how to solve problems in our day-to-day lives.  She explained that this field is growing with limitless possibilities, but many girls do not realize their potential in this area. 

The club will focus on finding solutions to real-life problems through technology.  Background in the basics of all programming languages will be taught.  The girls will learn how to build websites, apps, games and much more as they use their imagination and creativity in coding.  We all hear the phrase "there's an app for that!".  If there isn't, these girls will learn how to create one.  

Mrs. Mendonsa will run the club on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Pack Time beginning in March. If you have an interest in participating, see her in Room 43.
