The A. P. Studio Art class at MMHS recently created this collaborative project for the Halloween season. This project was entirely student-generated. Morgan Smith, Abbey Erickson, and Heather Richins worked together to design, organize and ultimately hung the 7' square artwork, which is made of 121 smaller squares. Each of the students in Mr. Gillespie's A. P. Studio Art class helped in the production of acrylic paintings of smaller monsters which culminated in this project, which can be seen in the C hall upstairs.

The Eagles had a great season and for the first time were able to advance through the first round of the state playoffs with an impressive 7-0 win over Woods Cross High School. The girls soccer team ended their season with a disappointing loss in the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs to Bonneville High School. The Eagles finished 2nd in Region 8 just behind the State Champion Timpanogos team. However, the Golden Eagles handed the Timpanogos soccer team its only loss of the season in an exciting win in double overtime during region play.

October Students of the Month

Maple Mountain High announces the October students of the month.

Marianne Pressley - Sophomore Marianne Pressley plans to attend BYU and wants to major in Chinese and minor in communications. Her interest in Chinese is because she was adopted from China, and it is currently her favorite subject in school.

Her favorite quote is, "The only barrier to success is the fear of failure." - Sven Goran. The reason she likes this quote is "because fear can stop a person from doing anything. If you never do it, then you'll never know whether or not you'll like it."
