“They, and we, are the legacies of an unbroken chain of men and women who served their country with honor, who waged war so that we might know peace, who braved hardship so that we might know opportunity, who paid the ultimate price so that we might know freedom.”
-President Barack Obama 2009

We thank and honor our veterans today and always. Here are some moments from our Veterans Day assembly today. Thank you everyone who made this assembly happen. It was a truly memorable experience for everyone who attended and participated.

Three members of the Maple Mountain High School Drill Team were named to the 5A All-State Drill Team.  Tiffany Asay, daughter of Suzanne and Dwayne Asay; Hannah Finch, daughter of Kim and Matt Finch; and Annie Merrill, daughter of Melisa and Chris Merrill were chosen to represent Maple Mountain at the 5A All-State Drill Team Auditions. 

Tiffany is a three-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team.  She was an Assistant Drill Mistress her junior year and is the President/Head Drill Mistress this year.  Tiffany was a “Top Corp” finalist at Basic Dance Training Camp this past summer. Tiffany enjoys biking, playing the piano, and swimming.

Hannah is a three-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team.    She was an Assistant Drill Mistress her junior year and is the Drill Mistress of the team this year.  Hannah was a “Top Corp” finalist at Basic Dance Training Camp this past summer.  Hannah enjoys reading, sleeping, and dancing.

Annie is a three-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team.  She was the Historian her junior year and is an Assistant Drill Mistress for the team this year.  Annie was a “Top Corp” finalist at Basic Dance Training Camp this past summer.  Annie enjoys dancing, playing with her puppies, shopping, hanging out with friends, and listening to music.

The auditions were held on Wednesday, November 8 at Bountiful High School.  Each 5A school sent three girls to represent their school at the auditions.  There were 42 girls who auditioned.  A cut was made after the girls showed their technique in some across the floor combinations in front of a panel of three judges who narrowed it down to 30 girls.  Those girls were taught a short dance and then auditioned it for the judges, who decided which girls made the team.  There were 16 girls who made the final cut.

The 5A All-State Team will be recognized at the State Drill Team Competition that will be held at UVU in February.  Congratulations to these girls for their accomplishments!

On Friday, November 3rd, Mrs. Brunt's class earned a class compliment party. We decided to have a straw tower building contest. In teams of 5, students had the task of building the tallest, free standing structure using straws and connectors. It was a very close race and the students learned that a large, solid base and teamwork were very important in being successful. These third graders had fun and are looking forward to the next challenge.

Seussical The Musical by the MMHS Fine Arts Department

The MMHS Fine Arts Department is gearing up for the performances of the Maple Mountain High School fall musical, Seussical. The show performs on November 10, 11, and 13 at 7 PM, with a 2 PM matinee on Saturrday, November 11 in the MMHS auditorium.

Based on the well-known works of Dr. Seuss, this musical tells the story of a young boy who doesn’t fit in so he uses his imagination to escape to places where he feels safe and “normal”.

The Boy, who becomes a character—Jojo (Chelsie Hawkes)—in his own imagination’s story, is a young person with a vivid imagination who tries to fit in with those around him. He never quite succeeds in real life, so he often uses his ‘thinks’ to escape into a world that he can watch in story fashion from afar. When the Cat (Anton Moss) pushes him into his own imagined story he learns that he is strong and good enough to be true to himself regardless of whether or not he is accepted by others. Not only does he grow in this personal knowledge, even the characters he has imagined—Horton (Nathan Austin), Gertrude (Sarah Savage), Sour Kangaroo (Cami Roberts), Mayzie (Cassidy Christensen), Mr. and Mrs. Mayor (Jason Metler and Kate Hoffman), General Schmitz (Talon Tippetts) and all the rest—develop a confident sense of self and awareness of others.

Seussical is a show is filled with wild imagination, fascinating, familiar, and beloved characters, as well as spunky music and exciting dance numbers! This incredible cast has been working since early in the school year to bring this production from imagination to reality.

Jason Cragun and Scout Troop 1461 finished their project last Tuesday. They had a great turnout and had about 60 current, former, and future Mustangs show up to help out, as well as some parents. They put in about 6 cubic yards of mulch and removed about 10 cubic yards of sod and dirt from around the trees. They put weed fabric and mulch around 29 trees and the MJHS welcome sign. The estimated total hours of labor involved are close to 150. 

Thank you for all of the hard work that went into giving our school a real face lift. It looks amazing!
