Seniors for the Yearbook

It is time to start thinking about congratulating your senior for completing high school! Crazy, right? One way to congratulate your senior is to get a senior ad placed in the yearbook. Senior ads are available to purchase at Maple Mountain's finance office.

These are the important dates and prices to consider:

  • February 9, 2018 is the FINAL DEADLINE to buy an ad.
  • $20 if purchased before February 2.
  • $30 if purchased after February 2.

4 things are needed for a senior ad:

  1. ONE photo of your senior.
  2. A few sentences congratulating your senior (if it’s too long, it will be shortened).
  3. A self-addressed envelope so your photo can be returned.
  4. A copy of the receipt from the finance office. 

Give the envelope with the photo, sentences, and receipt to the main office secretary. Digital photos and sentences may be emailed to but the ad will not be created until a copy of the receipt is received.

The yearbook staff will create the senior ads to fit the design of the yearbook, and all senior ads will be the same size.
Questions? Call or email Mr.   801.794.6740 ext 1563

Nebo School District’s teacher Shareka Gregory, was nominated and WON the KSL Teacher Feature.

Mrs. Gregory was nominated by parent, Ashley Atwater. She said in part:
“When my daughter was able to turn in a request form last May, the first teacher on her list was Mrs. Gregory. I knew nothing about her or her teaching style, but my daughter was drawn to her. As this school year approached, she celebrated as she found out who her teacher was. She was so excited to start school and be in Mrs. Gregory's class.

“School starts and from day one, my daughter has loved going to school. When she has to stay home because she is sick, my daughter cries because she will miss out on all of the awesome things Mrs. Gregory has planned for them. Mrs. Gregory has an Instagram for her fourth-grade class. On there, she takes pictures and videos of the kids and things they are working on at school. As a parent, I love this! I cannot be there every day to see all the amazing things she is doing, but I feel like a part of it because Mrs. Gregory takes the time to do this.

“It doesn't stop there... we received our monthly newsletter in our child's folder, and it read at the top something similar to this, ‘Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Then she explained that when her heart is aching she just wants to serve. She adopted a class and was in close contact with a teacher in Texas effected by the hurricane and was collecting and mailing supplies and donations to them. This just shows you what kind of a person she is. We think she is just amazing, and I know I am not the only parent that feels this way!”

KSL NewsRadio and Zions Bank are proud to honor Utah's best teachers with the KSL Teacher Feature Awards! Since 1994, Teacher Feature has highlighted outstanding teachers throughout the State of Utah. Winning teachers are announced every Tuesday morning, September through June, on Utah's Morning News with Brian & Amanda.

All winners are also invited to attend an end-of-year banquet at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in their honor. In addition, one lucky teacher will win the grand prize 2-year lease on a new car courtesy of Burt Brothers Tire and Service.
