The students at Mapleton Elementary had a practice fire drill on Monday, October 13 after the firemen came and taught each class about fire safety.  The students quickly followed the procedure of the school when the fire alarm went off.  They followed their assigned route to the back of the school and lined up.  All teachers made sure that each student was accounted for, and then they were able to come back in the school to keep learning.  We have several drills each year to help the students to be prepared in case of an emergency.

The MMHS Shakespeare ensemble scene won first place in our division out of 20 schools at the Utah Shakespeare Festival competition this last weekend, which is one of the biggest divisions in the entire competition. Senior Derek Maxfield also won the Larry Lott acting award, which is the award given to the most outstanding actor in an ensemble scene. Some of these scenes have upwards of 50 students in them so this is a big honor, and it came with a $1000 scholarship! 

We also had students compete in individual events (short scenes and monologues), and we are so proud of their work, as well! Many received all 'Superior' ratings, which is the highest possible. We have such amazing students.

MJHS started the Hope Squad this year. The mission statement of Hope Squad is to reduce the number of youth suicides in the state of Utah by providing education, training, and expertise in suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. 

Last Wednesday the Hope Squad members attended their training at Shadow Mountain. The mountains were beautiful and the time was well spent! Dr. Greg Hudnall was our guest speaker and he talked about the role and importance Hope Squads have all across the state of Utah. He motivated and got us excited about our newly formed Hope Squad. Mr. Jex did a great job with activities and team building exercises to help us get to know each other better and start working towards the goals we would like to meet as we go throughout the year. The students created posters to help promote the Hope Squad so watch for them in the hallways and let a Hope Squad member know if you need help with anything!​Back Row Left to Right: Emily Westercamp, Gracie Miller, Bela Balser, Emma Mousser, Krianne Lamont, Erika Downs, Sarah Savage, Jaden Christensen.

Red Ribbon Week at MJHS

Last week was Red Ribbon Week at MJHS.  The students all anchored together to take a stand against drugs and bullying by wearing red wristbands throughout the week.  They also wore RED on Wednesday and finished the week with an assembly.  We had a visit and demonstration by the K-9 dog and officers. Thank you to the students and teachers for a great week in support of Red Ribbon Week!

Written by Noah Rees

Red Ribbon Week is when we take a stand against drugs and bullying. We, the students, are responsible to taking in effect the morally right thing to do for us, and this week helps us to think about it. It also reminds us about how we should be drug free and to no bully or be a bystander. Say “no” to anything bully related and talk to a trusted adult.

I would like to share a story that a lot of people may have heard. There was a kid that got bullied so bad that he took all of his stuff home because he was going take his life. But, on the bus ride home he got bumped and a complete stranger helped him pick up his belongings. Because of that one good deed that kid changed his mind. That one instance of kindness helped save that kid’s life. Long story short, respect others and treat them the way you want to be treated.

I had a friend that battled with drug abuse all through last year. He finally got back on his feet during the spring. He was doing really well but then he felt urged to do drugs again. He didn’t want to disappoint anyone and so he took his life. Please help each other and be educated about the situation.

The only thing you need to be is a friend.
