Mrs. Carlson, the Newest Addition to Our Team

Submitted by tyler.lewis on Fri, 10/23/2020 - 13:08

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.

Orchestra Concert

Submitted by tyler.lewis on Wed, 10/21/2020 - 14:41

Last Wednesday, October 14, the orchestras had their fall concert. This was their first concert of the year. They practiced non-stop in preparation for this event. At home practice, in class rehearsals, and even before school sectionals; they were determined to get as much practice in as they could before the big concert. Andrew Stark said he was “excited but stressed” for the concert. Most of the orchestra students eemed to reflect this feeling of nervous excitement. Many felt they were prepared personally but had their doubts about the class as a whole.

Submitted by tyler.lewis on Wed, 10/14/2020 - 13:07

Last week our school made a whole week geared towards raising money for Bryson McQuivey’s cancer treatments.  We called it 15 Strong Week because Bryson’s number on the football team is 15.  Each day of the week there was a different activity to help raise money for his illness.  We also dressed in certain themes each day.
