We are honoring Veterans at Mapleton Junior High School on Friday, November 10th. We would love to have art displayed throughout the cafetorium and commons area that represent our theme.

You could choose between many different art options such as: drawing, painting, sculpting, constructing, photography, etc. Please make sure it follows the guidelines.

The guidelines are as follows:

1- Think of the theme, "Land of the Free; Because of the Brave," and create a work of art that represents the theme.

2- Make sure it is respectful (no graphic violent scenes)

3- Make sure it honors our veterans

4- The art piece needs to be at least 8x10. We want people to be able to see it and the detail you have worked so hard to create. It can be bigger, but 8x10 is the minimum size.

The top 3 art projects will get prizes and recognized in the assembly!

DUE DATE: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1st. Please submit your entry to Mrs. Rowley room 211

Last Wednesday, September 20th, several students from Mapleton Junior High were invited to attend Nebo School District's leadership conference and heard about sportsmanship and other life lessons from some awesome speakers. The students that attended were selected from our MJHS fall sports teams.  The fall sport captains representing MJHS were Benny West - Cross Country, Zanna Perry - Cross Country, Luke Roylance - Golf, and Hannah Townsend - Girls Tennis.  

The meeting started off with a speaker from IHC about the importance of sleep for athletes and human beings.  Brodie Berg, a former Pro Golfer turned Fireman, then presented on what it means to be a leader, sharing some great experiences. 

After a short break the final speaker was Wes Ruff, the sports anchor for Channel 4 News.  Ruff presented on sportsmanship and being a captain.  Ruff also had many great experiences and stories to tell. 

It was very beneficial for these young students to attend and to be able to learn more about what it means to be a Captain!
