Maple Mountain High School’s STEM Ambassadors club had another successful year.  Having the opportunity to meet with students from Sierra Bonita and Mapleton Elementary schools, the STEM ambassadors taught principles of coding to all fifth grade students.  This was done by teaching stage two of code.org.  While some elementary students struggled, other students made it to stage three.  Jared Martin said the following, “Throughout my high school career, this has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken.  Most definitely my favorite part about this class has been teaching and connecting with the kids.”  Nikelle Barney stated, “Every time I walked into the class the kids would always be so happy to see me and my partner, calling out our names and telling us about how far they’ve gotten.”  Thanks to all the fifth grade students and STEM ambassadors for making this another successful year!x

The 2017-2018 school year was a great success for the DECA club at Maple Mountain High School. With monthly meetings, leadership conference, and 5 competitions throughout the year the students stayed busy. Leadership Conference was held in Salt Lake City. Students were addressed by an executive from Maverick.

Following leadership conference, we had competitions at the following locations: Herriman High School, Snow College, LDS Business College, Utah Valley University “regionals,” and Layton Conference Center “state.”  We had 7 students qualify for state, and of the seven students 6 qualified in the top 10 in their respective events with Issack Bahena taking first in his event and qualifying for Nationals in Atlanta Georgia, which Issack attend!  

Issack had the following to say about being in DECA this year and attending nationals, “The opportunity to both represent my school and state on a national and international level was humbling. It was an experience I will never forget”.  

Thanks to the great DECA students for the 2017-2018 year!!

SCHOOL CELEBRATIONS
Utah Prevention Day gives secondary schools around the state an opportunity to celebrate the prevention lessons that students have learned throughout the year. Teachers can review and reinforce those life skills taught before students leave for the summer. We want to protect our students from the dangers of drugs, under-age drinking, violence, crime and bullying.

There will be a central celebration of Utah Prevention Day on May 3, at the Smith’s Ballpark with the Salt Lake Bees and 12,000 students and teachers. Governor and Mrs. Herbert will be in attendance to present the signed declaration. As a part of the state-wide celebration, schools are encouraged to do an activity promoting a prevention message, either on May 3, or sometime before the end of the school year.

___________________________________________________

Clark Todd Tolbert is a senior at Maple Mountain High School in Spanish Fork. Clark is a big part of the technical theater program at Maple Mountain. In his role as student technical director, Clark provides technical support for numerous school and community events that use the school’s auditorium. He has been recognized in a number of ways for his work. He lead the Maple Mountain High School technical theatre team to a 3rd place finish at the Utah Shakespeare Festival High School Competition. He also received a special Judges Award for his lighting design for the one-act play “Trojan Women” at the Region 8 play competition.

Bradley Moss drama teacher at Maple Mountain High School had this to say about Clark: “He is remarkable in his ability to listen to others and to use what they say to make decisions to help support a performance.”

 

After high school, Clark wants to pursue a bachelors degree in fine arts with an emphasis in lighting design and later go on to get a masters degree. His dream is to live in New York City and be a part of Broadway productions. He also loves playing the piano and spending time with his family.

Clark is a joy to have in class because he is a friend to everyone, he gets engaged in what we’re doing and helps others to do so, and he adds fun and warmth.

 

Clark was also recognized as an MMHS Student of the Month in fall 2017, his nomination being supported by all of the performing arts faculty.

Universities are also taking an interest in the type of student and person Clark is. He has received numerous scholarship offers based on his academic standing, the quality of his technical theater work, and the person that he is.
