Maple Mountain FFA gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees held in Sandy Utah. This year the officers chose the theme of "We Wish You a Rustic Christmas." Two of the senior boys, Shadoe Holm and Decker Nielson, designed and created the tree completely out of horse shoes. It took 200 horseshoes and 15 man hours to complete. The tree was simply decorated by the rest of the officer team with lights and garland. Burlap boxes were created to be put with the tree.

November Students of the Month

MMHS is proud to announce the November Students of the Month!

Sophomore Kristi Reategui’s favorite quote is, “I am in competition with no one.  I run my own race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in any way, shape, or form.  I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before. That’s me and I’m free.” In five years, Kristi sees herself in the Olympics.
