    *MMHS Students of the Month for November: We would like to congratulate and recognize the following outstanding students for being selected as MMHS Students of the Month for November, by our English Department.

     Sophomores: Felicity Child & Austin Gordon

     Juniors: Amanda Randquist & Corbin Nelson

     Seniors: Kiera Allen & Troy Goodin

    *THREE MMHS ELLEVÉS NAMED TO 5A ALL-STATE DRILL TEAM: 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!

  • Other Important Information:

    *Accessing Student Grades and Report Cards: 1st Term grades are posted and we want to be sure you can

    access your student’s grades. Here are three ways to access those grades and the report card.

    1. Parents can log into your existing SIS/Aspire account: https://sisweb2.nebo.edu/Login/

    2. Students can go to lab C207 (Mrs. Richins) to print a report card.

    3. If you need an “official” report card for an insurance company, etc. parents or students can request one in the counseling office.

    If you have never set up an SIS/Aspire parent account here is how to create one so you can access your

    student’s grades any time of day, all year long.

    1. Go to the SIS online page: https://sisweb2.nebo.edu/Login.aspx

    2. “Request a User Name”

    3. Enter “Student ID” (your student’s lunch number) and Birthday

    4. Follow instructions from here. There is also a way to email forgotten passwords.

    *Attendance Information: Parents -- If your student checks out early or comes in after

    school has begun, please remind them to stop by the front office to sign in or sign out. This

    helps us in tracking the classes they have missed. Please understand that signing in or out

    does not automatically excuse a student’s absence! A parent or guardian still needs to

    contact the school to excuse their student. As always, please contact Mrs. Davis in our

    attendance office if you have questions or concerns.

    MMHS School Musical

    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

    Saturday, November 11 in the MMHS auditorium.

    Seussical is a high energy show built around several familiar Dr.

    Seuss stories. 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. Watch as the mysterious Cat in the Hat leads

    JoJo through stories of elephants and clovers, one-feather-tailed

    birds, family, loss, hope, and finding your place in the world.

    Tickets are $6 for students and $8 for adults and are available at the

    door.

  • The cast will also be holding a special storytime before the 2 PM

    performance on Saturday, November 11. We are calling it Seussapalooza

    and anyone can come to hear the cast read Dr. Seuss stories, play

    games, and learn a section of choreography. This event is free of

    charge, and those who learn the choreography will be invited on stage

    after the matinee performance to dance on the stage with the cast.

We will be accepting donations from November 6-17 and students are encouraged to bring in food items or canned goods to their classes anytime. Student Council will also be involved with Hobo Thursday during lunch on Nov 2, Nov 9 and Nov 16 where they will be asking students for extra change that can help buy Thanksgiving dinners for up to 20 students who are needy within our school. Every donation is appreciated!
