This month's recipient of the Spirit of the Mustang award I see working everyday on his craft.  He has influence beyond the classroom and court. He connects with students on multiple levels and willingly helps those of us who struggle with these same students.  He is engaging in his lessons, and interacts in positive ways with students, parents and colleagues. He is an artist as well as an athlete. I often hear students talk about him and his class as being their hardest and best/favorite class, which is a tribute to his high expectation level and teaching level.  He has become a good friend and I love teaching next to him—except on dissection days—He is Mr. Naulu

Annie Play Performance

Sierra Bonita Elementary News - Wed, 03/21/2018 - 4:17pm

We are so excited for the 'Annie' play tonight. We appreciate all the support we receive each and every year. The play showtimes will be at 7pm tonight and tomorrow night only.

Due to the high attendance at our school plays, we ask that everyone be respectful and only save up to 4 seats. Doors will open at 6:30pm. Tickets will not be sold until 6:30pm as well. This allows the cast members to get things ready before the audience fills up the auditorium. Tickets are $1 and concessions will be available tonight as well.

We ask that everyone be seated by 6:55pm. This will allow us to assess the attendance and have everyone move to the center to fit in additional audience members.

The cast members have worked really hard and are very excited to show you their talents tonight.

Enjoy the show!

Our school-wide Career Day will be held tomorrow, March 22.  We are very excited for this event and have invited 38 speakers and 18 lunchtime vendors to teach your students about different careers.  We have posted the list of speakers on the MMHS website on the main page under “Career Day”.  If you would like to take a minute and review this list with your child, they will have an idea of the many options available to them.  Printed lists will be made available to your student tomorrow in their first period class.  Lists will also be available in the front office and counseling office. Our Career Day will go from 9:00-10:15 a.m.   The presentations will last 25 minutes and students will have the opportunity to choose two speakers from the list.  Please encourage your student to make good use of this time.  We have a wide variety of careers and hope that your student will take advantage of this opportunity to talk with professionals in a career they may want to pursue.  Our presenters are volunteering their time and we appreciate their efforts. 

Our mini-career fair during lunch will have vendors from some local businesses who are currently hiring, cosmetology schools, military, MATC, and more.

Drivers start your engines! The Kindy 500 was full of adventures. They visited famous landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell, and the Lincoln Memorial.

Mapleton Elementary students won the Road to Success Dr. Seuss Read-on-thon and were rewarded with a visit from Big Budah with Fox13News.  Our students read a total of 308,500 minutes during that one week, more than any other elementary school in Utah! Mrs. Jensen's second grade class had the most minutes for grades K-3 and Mr. Groneman's fifth grade class read the most for grades 4-6, earning them a spot on the stage with Big Buddah. We are so proud of all the reading that the students did. Thank you for all the encouragement and support at home!

Show Choir - Music at the Mountain

Sierra Bonita Elementary News - Mon, 03/19/2018 - 2:23pm

Attention for Show Choir Parents

We have been invited to sing at Maple Mountain High School’s Music at the Mountain, April 11, at 7:00 P.M. In order to be ready for this, I would like to have some additional choir practices for JUST the Show Choir kids.

The first practice for this would be on Thursday, March 22, at 8:00 a.m. This will give us a chance to learn the combined number for that concert. This is the same week as our combined practice with the Jr. Choir. (March 21st at 8:00 a.m.)

 I would also like to practice with the kids on Wednesday, March 28th at 8:00 a.m. That practice will be to polish up our two numbers and the combined number as well. I won’t keep the kids as long for this practice.

Then, one more practice on Wednesday, April 11th, at 8:30 a.m., so we can make sure we have everything ready for that night.

The kids will need to wear Hawaiian/Tropical/ bright clothing, Flip flops/sandals, sunglasses, beach towels, etc. Don’t go and buy anything. Just have the kids let me know if they need to borrow some of my things for that night.

I don’t know what our schedule is for that night. We will be assigned a certain section for sitting in at the auditorium. If you need to leave before it’s over, that’s okay with me. Just let me know that that is your plan.

Thank you so much for allowing us to work with your children in choir year. We love it, and we hope it shows!

Thanks for all of your support!

On Monday, March 12th BYU biology students came to our 3rd grade classrooms. In small groups of 4 or 5 students, the BYU students led a frog dissection and discussion. Our 3rd graders LOVED this opportunity to learn more about frogs and biology. A big thank you to Jamie Jensen for arranging this fun opportunity for us.

Library Fun

The library has really been hopping the last few months. In February, the 5th and 6th graders tried library speed dating and discovered some great new books. There were also a lot of brave souls that went on a "blind date" and took a chance on something different. It was a wonderful way to get kids reading books they may not have tried.
