Sophomore Life Part 2

Being the youngest in a new school environment is always hard for students to adjust to. It might seem like it's not a big deal for parents or other students, so we wanted to go ahead and ask some of these new sophomore students to see how it really is from their perspective.

Drivers Ed is a class that students at MMHS are required to take if they want their drivers license. Students who take Drivers Ed are required to take a class where they take notes on driving, watch videos and do worksheets. Students learn about defensive driving, drowsy driving, impaired driving, aggressive driving, distracted driving and seatbelts. They also have an intersection assignment and a maintenance assignment. Students also have time on the driving range with instructors to practice driving.

Shelby Hellstrom, a senior, showcases a variety of her masks.

This year started out like no school year ever has before. For the first time, we have been required to wear masks to school everyday in an effort to stop the spread of Covid-19. If a year ago it was common knowledge that masks would be necessary in schools, an uproar would’ve been the response. Now everyone wears masks, and it seems unnatural to see someone not wearing a mask.

Mrs. Goldsberry is the new sophomore English teacher.

Mrs. Goldsberry is the new sophomore English teacher. She  wanted to be a teacher since her junior and senior year of high school, where her amazing English teachers inspired and taught her how to think critically about the real world. The fond memories from her experience as a student droveher towards her passion of teaching and impacting the lives of kids just like similar to how she was impacted. She loves reading, writing, and in depth discussion. Now, a first year teacher at Maple Mountain, she can bring these ideas to the students in her classroom.

The Maple Mountain Marching Band has been hard at work practicing since July. It’s a  wonder they even had a season this year, with Covid-19. There almost wasn’t going to be a marching band season, as it is difficult to play an instrument with a mask.  The band has been engaged in their work, trying hard to create an amazing show. They were super excited to perform and show off all that effort. The homecoming game was their first opportunity to do so. The performance looked and sounded amazing.
