Junior ACT Day is This Wednesday, February 20
On Wednesday, February 20, all 11th-grade students in the State of Utah will be taking the ACT. This is a FREE opportunity for all juniors to take the ACT! Administration of this test will follow all ACT standards, so in order to create the required testing environment for our juniors, we have set aside this day for ACT testing only. **Your junior is already registered; you do not need to do anything to sign them up for this ACT administration.**
Wednesday, February 20 will be an ACT-testing-only day for our school
There will be NO SCHOOL that day for students who are not in 11th grade.
Due to the need for an undisturbed testing environment, ACT does not allow us to have any students on campus who are not part of the ACT administration. Please make other arrangements for your students in grades 7, 8, 9, 10, and 12 on February 20 as we will not have space or supervision available for them on our campus that day. As this is an official ACT administration, we will be unable to interrupt testing to check students out. We appreciate your help in ensuring a good testing environment for our juniors!
Second Semester Class Fees DUE February 28
Fees have been assessed for second semester classes and new students. Class fees include Film As Art, Photography, Show Choir, Theatre Tech and Video Productions. New students and/or students who have added full-year classes with fees may have additional fees for AP Exams and/or lab fees.
Math Girls Rock!
The next meeting of Math Girls Rock will be held on Thursday, February 28th from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. This is a FREE event, sponsored by UVU. It is open to all girls in grades 7-12, in any level of math. We make fun math crafts, learn how to problem solve, and explore career options.

Last Day to Buy Yearbooks at Regular Price: Friday, March 22
Friday, March 22nd, is the LAST DAY to purchase a yearbook at the regular $55 price! At 12:01am on Saturday, March 23rd, yearbooks will increase to the $65 late-order price.
How do I purchase a yearbook for my student?
There are two ways to purchase yearbooks:
- In person in the front office during office hours: Mon-Thurs 7:30am-4:00pm, Fri 7:30am-1:30pm
- Online at our RevTrak Web Store (choose “Maeser Prep Yearbook”)
Can I still purchase a video yearbook and/or year-end supplement?
Our 2018-19 yearbook goes to the printer SOON, so if your student is participation in a spring sport or activity, you will want to get a video yearbook and year-end supplement to preserve those memories!
- If you’re buying your yearbook at the front desk, ask to have a video yearbook DVD ($5) and/or year-end supplement ($2) to your order.
- If you’ve already purchased your student’s yearbook and didn’t add a video yearbook or year-end supplement during your initial purchase, you can order them at the front desk during office hours.
- If you’re buying your yearbook on RevTrak, you can add the video yearbook DVD and/or the year-end supplement when you add a yearbook to your order.
- If all else fails… we will have a limited number of copies of both the video yearbook DVD and year-end supplement for sale on Yearbook Day.
What if I’m not sure if I’ve already purchased a yearbook?
To avoid duplicate orders, if you’re not sure if you’ve purchased a yearbook please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the front office to ask them to check your student’s fees before ordering a yearbook through RevTrak.
