It was an exciting week for our students in the chapter at Mapleton Junior High School as they competed at FCCLA Region 4 on February 8th. Our students have been preparing for their Star Event interviews in a few different areas. They have done an amazing job!  So proud of them for putting in the extra work and getting a little stressed in preparation for their interviews.  Students who participated were Jennilyn Hess, Hannah Brown, Sam Anderson, Vivian Tew, Rebekah Dastrup, Jenna Lyman, and Madison Rothlisberger.

MMHS CTSO Groups Teach CCA

Submitted by nikki.argyle on Fri, 01/26/2024 - 10:21

Our CTSOs (Career & Technical Student Organization) presented to the 7th-grade CCA students at Maple Grove Middle School today! We had a lot of fun teaching them about our FCCLA, FFA, and SkillsUSA groups! The 7th graders even got to make their own container of homemade butter! (Hopefully, that didn’t cause a problem for the custodians later!)  Thank you to Ms. Peterson, Mr. Sorenson, and Ms. Huezo for inviting us! We can’t wait for these future Golden Eagles to be students at MM…and maybe they’ll be future officers in one of these amazing leadership organizations!

SHHS Fashion Show

Submitted by nikki.argyle on Thu, 01/11/2024 - 15:46

The Salem Hills Fashion Design Merchandising class, taught by Whitney Black, had a blast as they got to put together designs. They were given newspaper, tissue paper, a plastic tablecloth, and tape as their materials and had half an hour to put together a design before the judges came in. The teams presented their designs in a mini fashion show and did an amazing job showing off their talents!

Farm To Fork At Salem Jr High

Submitted by nikki.argyle on Wed, 12/20/2023 - 13:05

Mr. Warren's Exploring Agriculture class grew herbs as part of the Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) project throughout the semester. They also learned about plant care, maintenance, and growth patterns.

As a cross-curricular experience they combined with Mrs. Keliiliki's

Exploring Foods class to do their 'Farm to Fork' experience.  It is a great opportunity for these students to see the entire process and benefits of doing SAE projects.
