his year our Football Team tied Wasatch for 1st in our region. Our varsity boys had a great season with a record of 7-2. We interviewed a few of our Senior players; Derek Blanthorn, Brooks Maughan, and Ben Crockett, and asked them about their season and what went well.
Naomi Memmott has been selected as a Maple Mountain "Prep Athlete of the Week" for her outstanding play as a member of the volleyball team. Along with her strong efforts this year Naomi has provided great leadership as a senior to a very young team this year as they head to the final week of region play and a high RPI seed in next week's state tournament. Naomi has also represented her team with a high academic GPA. Congratulations Naomi and good luck to you and your teammates the rest of the way.
The bell rings. Class is over for the day. Students start getting in their cars and driving home. Athletes and teachers are still at the school, but for the most part the school and its hallways are deserted. That makes you wonder: what are all the students doing? What do they do in their time that isn’t spent at school? One of the things that some students do is work.
Students go to band to be themselves and work hard at being the best they can be. They create wonderful music and perform to the best of their abilities. Mr. Hurst, the band director, makes the learning environment welcoming and fun. He pushes them to be the best they can be and all the students have been improving and growing. The program is a team effort. It doesn’t work well if they aren’t working together. Everyone puts in their time and practices, and the effort really shows when they perform.
The teachers at Maple Mountain are some of the best in existence. It’s always a sad day to see a loved teacher go. This year we had to say goodbye to Mr. Miller, the physics teacher. We wish him the best.
Who would we have to fill his shoes? The newest teacher on our Maple Mountain Staff is Mrs. Carlson! She took over the position as our physics teacher, but she also has the ability to teach chemistry if needed. Having graduated from BYU, Mrs. Carlson is well equipped to teach our students.
