Our school-wide Career Day will be held tomorrow, March 22. We are very excited for this event and have invited 38 speakers and 18 lunchtime vendors to teach your students about different careers. We have posted the list of speakers on the MMHS website on the main page under “Career Day”. If you would like to take a minute and review this list with your child, they will have an idea of the many options available to them. Printed lists will be made available to your student tomorrow in their first period class. Lists will also be available in the front office and counseling office. Our Career Day will go from 9:00-10:15 a.m. The presentations will last 25 minutes and students will have the opportunity to choose two speakers from the list. Please encourage your student to make good use of this time. We have a wide variety of careers and hope that your student will take advantage of this opportunity to talk with professionals in a career they may want to pursue. Our presenters are volunteering their time and we appreciate their efforts.
Our mini-career fair during lunch will have vendors from some local businesses who are currently hiring, cosmetology schools, military, MATC, and more.

Our welding program has made it to the semifinals of a national welding contest. The schools were given the direction of "Weld it Forward" and a deadline. We have built our projects and sent them off to those in need in Mexico. But the majority of our vote comes from public voting starting the 16th of March. Voting ends the 26th of March. You can cast your vote at www.welditforward.com. If we win this, our program will receive a $20,000 supply of new welders.
Our FBLA club returned home from our state competition last night, and they did very well. 8 of our 10 competitors placed in the top 10 at state in 12 different events bringing home a total of 21 certificates!

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!
