Maple Mountain FFA gave the “Gift of Love” to the children of Primary Children’s Medical Center by donating a tree to the Festival of Trees. Members of the FFA came up with a Country-time Christmas theme and raised money to decorate the tree. Stars, bells, barbwire, ribbon, wood, and hand tooled ornaments adorned the tree. Officers and members spent time making ornaments, wrapping presents, or preparing the tree. We would like to thank all of those sponsors who donated items toward our tree and made our contribution a success.

The girl's basketball team has opened up its season with three big wins. The first was November 22nd, over Olympus, 54-38. The second was last Tuesday, over Payson, 54-23. The third was against Snow Canyon, 49-42. In all three games, the team played stellar defense, holding their opponents to single digit scoring in almost every quarter of each game. In addition to a great defensive effort thus far, the girls have been playing very well as a team on the offensive end, with balanced scoring and many different players stepping up throughout the course of each game.
