November Students of the Month

Maple Mountain High School News - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 8:13am

Maple Mountain High School is proud to announce the November students of the month!

Sophomore Katelyn Mitchell’s favorite quote is, “If a task is once begun, never leave it till it’s done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.” In five years, she sees herself returned from an LDS mission and then at college. 

Katelyn’s hobbies are four wheeling, camping, hiking, reading, and cooking. Her favorite subject in school is math because she likes working with numbers. One thing that sets Katelyn apart is that she likes challenges. She likes it when she can prove to herself and others that she can do hard things. 

If Katelyn could meet anyone in history, she would like to talk to Nathan Hale. She would ask him why he was so dedicated to the patriot cause.

Sophomore Jacob Collier’s favorite quote is, “To improve is to change, to be perfect is to change often.” –Winston Churchill. He likes it because we all face obstacles in our life, and if we change to face these challenges, we can have a great advantage in life. In five years, Jacob sees himself with a successful business in either the video game or computer industry.

Jacob’s hobbies are playing video games, thinking of video game ideas, building computers, and listening to music. His favorite subject in school is history or computer programming because the whole world runs on programming and most have no idea how it works. Jacob also thinks it’s fun to mess around with programming.

What makes Jacob different than everyone else is that he can be very creative and am very friendly. Unlike most, he’s very tech savvy and brings up subjects that most tech teachers have very limited knowledge on. He also enjoys listening to people’s point of view on all subjects.

If he could meet anyone in history, Jacob would meet Vladmir Lenin or Adolf Hitler. He would ask them why they did what they did.

Junior Abigail Taylor’s favorite quote is, “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” -Pablo Picasso. She likes this quote because it’s not about who she is, it’s what she can give. She wants to do her best so that she can give her best. It’s her motivation. In five years, Abigail sees herself as a recently returned missionary for the LDS church, going to BYU, and majoring in engineering.

Abigail hobbies include the piano, singing, photography, writing, going on walks with her camera, sleeping, listening to music, learning the guitar, learning in general, and cooking. Her favorite subjects in school are math, English, and choir. To Abigail, math just makes sense. She loves English because she loves to hear other’s ideas and learning how to express herself accurately. She also thinks music is life because it brings everyone all so close.

What makes Abigail different is that she is ambitious and idealistic, but she works hard so that all her dreams can come true. She dreams big and works hard. But other people are her priority. 

If she could talk with anyone in history, Abigail would love to talk with Emily Dickenson. She wants to know her and know the motivation and meaning of all her beautiful poems.

Junior Joshua Johnson sees himself in college in five years. His favorite subject is English because he loves words, stories, writing, reading, and phrasing. Currently, Joshua thinks rhetoric seems to be the ugly duckling of English.

Joshua’s hobbies include singing, reading, playing bass, and drawing. Something interesting about him is his talent for making up words and having nobody notice that they are not real. The funniest thing that happened to Joshua was when he tripped four times going up the stairs in C hall.

Joshua would like to meet Van Gogh and ask him his exact motives behind the whole ear thing.

Senior Hannah Blonquist’s favorite quote is, “When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad.” – Abraham Lincoln. She likes that quote because life is that simple to her. In five years, Hannah wants to be happy. She cant say now where she wants to be, but she does know that she wants to be making a difference to her family, community, or world. She will be a returned missionary, in college, and may have a family of her own. Her favorite subjects in school are anything that stretches her and makes her smile, specifically photography, choir, English, and AP psychology.

Hannah loves anything involving art like music, photography, painting, drawing, writing, etc. Creating something beautiful is what gives her satisfaction and fulfillment. The funniest thing that ever happened to her would be when a 4 year old girl asked Hannah if she was a terrorist and told Hannah she could just have her ring pop.

Something that sets her apart is that she doesn’t like to sleep on pillows.

Hannah would want to have a conversation with Adolf Hitler. She would ask him if he had regrets and why he did what he did.

Senior Joseph Rawle’s favorite quote is, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Joseph sees himself in five years attending college. His favorite subject in school is math because it is simple and logical.

Joseph’s likes to listen to music. The funniest thing that happened to Joseph was when he belly flopped off of a high dive.

If Joseph could talk with anyone in history, he would talk with his past self and answer his questions.

Ballet West Academy at Thanksgiving point performed Pinochio at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo.  A few of the dancers are Hobble Creek students.  The students saw the first part of the ballet and where encouraged to bring their family to a performance for the rest of the story. 

AT THE COVEY CENTER FOR THE ARTSAn Inspired Version of a Family Favorite: A Ballet Unlike Any Other.

Inspired by Carlo Collodi’s beloved book, choreographed and directed by Lindsay Folkman (Utah’s Best of State Choreographer 2014), and performed by the students and faculty of the new Barbara Barrington Jones Family Foundation Ballet West Academy at Thanksgiving Point, “PINOCCHIO: Awake My Soul” presents this timeless tale as you have never seen before. Come follow the carpenter, Geppetto, and his wooden puppet, Pinocchio, through the adventurous ups and downs of life, as they find, lose, and rediscover their own perceptions of LOVE and HOPE. Full of symbolism in both movement and lyric, “Pinocchio: Awake My Soul” is truly an inspired version of a family favorite.
