RYLA is the Rotary Youth Leadership Association. The conference is a three-day experience full of outdoor activities such as a high/low ropes course and many other outdoor activities that emphasize teamwork and decision making. In addition, RYLA focuses on service and Rotary’s role in building stronger communities by emphasizing both local and global citizenship. If you would like to be a better leader in your community and school, this is the experience for you. The RYLA organization will sponsor two of our students to attend. Students need to be either incoming sophomores or juniors next year. The application is available on the Counseling scholarship website and is due on May 19th.
Monday, May 1 from 1:45-4:45pm. If you have more than 3 hours to serve to clear NC's, plan to attend. Just pay the finance office $5, that will get your name on the list. You will receive 5 hours credit for only serving 3 hours time. It is a great way to help clear NC's. Please bring school work or a book to read.
There will only be 2 more Mega detentions May 8 and May 15 so make sure you mark your calendar.

Organization: Science Olympiad
Maple Mountain High School’s Science Olympiad team took first place this weekend at the State Championship Tournament held at the University of Utah. Competing against 30 other high schools from across the state, Maple Mountain was able to edge out the competition and secure their third state title in a row, and an invitation to Nationals. “We’ve had a lot of success as a team this year, but this year can’t be summed up in this single win alone,” coach Miller said, “the program has grown, there are more kids involved, and this enthusiasm is showing up not just in our science team, but also our school’s science department – it’s really exciting.” The Nationals competition will be held this year in Dayton, Ohio at Wright State University on May 18th and 19th.
