    *Attendance Information: If your student is mistakenly marked absent or tardy in a

    class, please have your student visit with the teacher of that class, as soon as possible,

    requesting the teacher fix the attendance mistake. Mrs. Davis (attendance) cannot remove

    or change something a teacher has marked, she only excuse their absence or tardy. If your

    student is late to class, be sure they sign the Tardy Log in the classroom to ensure they are

    only marked tardy and not absent.

    support those who have overcome and are overcoming their fight against breast cancer. We will be having a

    dig meter, and are asking people to pledge anywhere from 25 cents to 1$ per dig that the varsity team gets

    during their game. We will have a sign up at the door and we will collect money during the game for all this that

    would like to participate. The foundation we are donating the money to is called National breast cancer

    foundation. All those who donate will receive a pink breast cancer awareness wrist band. Thank you so much

    *Fight the New Drug: Dear Parents,

    Fight the New Drug, a worldwide anti-pornography organization, is coming to Springville and Mapleton

    on Oct. 3rd & 9th to give parent presentations to our community.

  • Fight the New Drug is a non-profit organization that has been featured by ABC Nightline, NBC, CNN, and

    other major news outlets. Their non-religious, non-political, educational assemblies are purely science

    and fact-based. Their assemblies are coming to every Jr. High and High School in Springville and Mapleton.

    Parents are strongly encouraged to attend one of the parent presentations that are being held in

    conjunction with the assemblies.

    You can learn more about FTND at www.fightthenewdrug.org

    At the parent meetings, Fight the New Drug will present all the information which will be given to the

    students at the school assemblies, as well as additional information on how the pornography industry is

    targeting children and teens, and what parents can do to better protect themselves and their families.

    Attending the assemblies/parent presentations will also give you access to the online “Fortify” Fight the New

    Drug pornography addiction recovery program.

    Parent Meetings:

    Monday, October 9th:

    Mapleton Parent Presentation

    7:00-8:00 pm (in the Cafetorium of Mapleton Jr. High)

    the harms of pornography, and learn about resources to help prevent and overcome pornography

    addiction.

    A big THANK YOU to all the parents who brought the delicious food for our teachers and staff during the parent-teacher conferences and who volunteered time to pass out report cards. Your contributions and help were so appreciated! Special thanks to Kari Hess and Nicole Peterson for organizing these opportunities.

    Our “Fund the Flag” fundraiser is now in full swing! MMHS would love our help in purchasing a new flag for the gym.
