We need you in dance next year!

Over the last nine years, we have started a tradition of excellence in the dance program at Maple Mountain High School.  Nearly 2000 students have performed with our dance classes and now it's your turn to be part of the tradition!

If you haven't signed up for a dance class next year, I strongly encourage you to consider adding one to your schedule.  At Maple Mountain, we have six fantastic dance classes to choose from: Social Dance 1, Social Dance 2, and classes that are part of the State and National Core Curriculum for dance education; Dance 1, Dance 2, Dance 3/Dance Excel, and Dance Company.

  Social Dance 1 and 2 classes emphasize mastery of movement, quality and style in basic ballroom dance.  Dance 1 and 2 are introductory and intermediate classes on different dance styles and dance techniques.  These are all semester classes and will fill either PE or Fine Arts credit requirements.

Incoming sophomores, juniors and seniors are also invited to audition for Dance 3/Dance Excel and Dance Company, the most advanced performing dance groups here at Maple Mountain.  These full year classes are designed to help students become better dancers, performers, and choreographers through the medium of creative, contemporary dance.  The Dance Company (MMDC) and Dance Excel both perform in concerts, assemblies, and adjudications.  For more information about auditions, and how to prepare, go to mmhsdance.weebly.com

Come and be part of the legacy of Maple Mountain Dance next year. We need awesome students to carry-on that tradition of excellence--and we know that you can be part of it!

See you soon!

Hi Parents!

Our SEP conferences will be held this Thursday, March 1st.  This will be student led conferences so there will be no sign-ups for this conference. 

We recommend that those whose last name that starts with A-L to come any time from 3:30-5:30 and M-Z to come any time between 6-8.  We understand that this time does not work for everyone so if you need to come to the other session that is fine.  We are just trying to prevent too much congestion.  Teachers will be eating dinner from 5:30-6pm.  

We hope to see you there!

Letter from our PTA Regarding Reflections

Sierra Bonita Elementary News - Mon, 02/26/2018 - 2:56pm

Sierra Bonita parents, A few months back, we sent out a survey asking for your feedback regarding Reflections. On the survey we proposed 2 different ideas. The first one was to continue to participate in Reflections. The second was to opt-out of Reflections, but instead hold a Sierra Bonita arts contest with similar categories and prizes as Reflections. The school-only program would have less limitations and rules, but the participants would not have the opportunity to move on to district or beyond.  Most of the people that took the survey supported the idea of switching to a school-only contest. However, we are aware that some of you expressed concern and would like for our school to continue participating in Reflections. In order to make a decision, we'll have a meeting on Friday, March 2nd at 2:30 pm in the teachers' lounge to discuss both options. If you feel strongly about Reflections, your attendance is important. Amy van Dyk, our current Reflections chair, will explain what is needed for our school to continue participating in Reflections and will also share her ideas for a school-only program.  You can email us at sierrabonitapta@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thank you, Sierra Bonita PTA

For Valentine's Day, students wanted to share their love and chose to do a service project for their class party.  Students were each able to make a first-aid kit, and collected many other items to be donated to Humanitize Expeditions. 

These items will be taken to Haiti, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic to help those in need.  Great job students! You are definitely making the world a better place. 

Thank you to all those who donated items for this project.

Teachers have such a huge impact on young minds.  With that kind of responsibility, this becomes more than a job.  It’s an adventure and the direct impact on students is very real.  In all my years of teaching, I have been lucky enough to have incredible examples, compadres, and wonderful friends because of my profession.  There are a handful of us left who were at the middle school where I felt support and love despite the pressure of being a first year teacher, and want to recognize one of them today.  Supportive, honest, dedicated, understanding, and an incredible listener.  This recipient of Spirit of the Mustang is one who does more than his job.  Always concerned about others, including me as a new teacher, and now today as being a little more seasoned.  He is truly a Nebo Hero. But more than anything else, he is my friend.  Senor Thomas will always be the man!
