Maple Mountain High announces the March students of the month.

 In five years, Sophomore Erica Olesen sees herself attending college figuring out her new, bright future. Erica favorite subject in school is math because everything has an answer, and it is very precise.

Her favorite quote is, "Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt to you, it’s your choice on how you play it." She likes that quote because it helps her remember that everybody is different and that you shouldn’t need to compare yourself to others.

On March 14, Mr. Holden’s UCBT class and many peer tutors had the opportunity to be a part of a deaf/blind experience. This was a great opportunity for many of us to get a little better understanding of what it would be like to be deaf and/or blind. Many students commented on how fortunate they were to have their sight and hearing. It was a great learning experience for all. Thank you to Sundi Goulding from USDB for taking the time to share this experience with us.

On March 2, Mr. Holden’s UCBT class celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by having green eggs and ham as part of their Life Skills activity. Did you know green eggs and ham do not taste any different than regular yellow eggs? Some students were hesitant to eat the green eggs, but they overcame their fears after Mr. Holden said he would eat some if they did!

Kevin is a sophomore and an honor roll student at MMHS. He plays #1 Singles for the Varsity Tennis Team and has had some great wins against opponents from Pleasant Grove, Lehi, Ogden, and Uintah in our season thus far. He is a great asset to the tennis team because of his good sportmanship, his easy going personality, and his high level of skill. He helped lead our team to a third place win at Duel in the Desert in St. George. Congratulations Kevin for being the Prep of the Week!
