Friday Mentoring Opportunities

Mentoring is one of the core principles of Classical education, and one of the things we do well at Maeser. Every Friday students can take advantage of mentoring opportunities provided by our faculty.

Here is the link to the schedule of upcoming mentoring opportunities: Friday Mentoring Opportunities.

Dead Poets Concert

When? Monday, October 22 from 6:30-7:30pm
Where? Maeser gym

Save the date!! Come join us for a fun evening of music, theatrical performances, and recitations from great minds of the past! All choirs will be performing, many of the Shakespeare pieces will be presented, and other readings by famous, dead poets. Add a little culture to your Halloween this year! Contact Erin Smith with questions.

Maeser Halloween Celebrations: Friday, October 26

We will be celebrating Halloween on Friday, October 26. Students will be allowed to wear Halloween costumes to school. All costumes must fit the Maeser-approved Halloween dress code: no masks, complete face coverings, weapons, or blood/gore allowed; costumes must be modest, covering all areas that would normally be covered by the school uniform.

After school during Mentoring (12:00-12:45pm), we will hold our annual Trunk or Treat in the Seminary parking lot. Families are invited to help set up their trunks and hand out treats during Mentoring! Parents: if you donate candy and/or come and participate, please count this toward your volunteer hours.

Volunteer Help Needed for Trunk or Treat

The Maeser HS Student Council and the Maeser LDS Seminary would LOVE your help with our annual Mentoring Trunk or Treat! Sign up to bring your decorated trunk and your family to participate with our Maeser students, or sign up to donate candy for the Trunk or Treat activity: Maeser Trunk or Treat SignUp Genius Page.
