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 or contact the front office to ask them to check your student’s fees before ordering a yearbook through RevTrak.

LAST CHANCE to Sign Up for After-School Ski/Snowboard Program at Brighton Ski Resort

In February and March 2019, Brighton Ski Resort will be offering group ski/snowboard lessons for Maeser families (limited space available). This is an after-school activity provided by Brighton Ski Resort and is not sponsored or run by the school. In order to participate in this activity, the participant must be 8 years old or older.

The ski/snowboard program will run for 5 consecutive weeks in 2019 — February 22, March 1, 8, 15, and 22 — from 4:15 to 6:15pm. After each lesson, the students will be able to ski and snowboard on their own until 9:00pm.

The cost of the ski program is $125 ($25 per student per day) for students ages 8 and up. This price includes the lesson and the night pass to ski/snowboard. Ski and snowboard rentals, which include boots, poles, skis, or snowboards, are available for $75 ($15 per day). There is no pro-rating for lessons or rentals that are unused. You may also choose to bring your own gear. Helmets are highly recommended but are not part of the rental package.

This program is sponsored and run by Brighton Ski Resort. Transportation to/from the resort is the responsibility of the student/family. Neither Maeser nor Brighton will be providing transportation. However, there is a UTA bus that runs to the resort if you do not wish to drive.

Once lessons begin, there will be no refunds or make ups, unless the program is cancelled due to a road closure, in which case a make-up day will be scheduled for the entire group.

Class sizes should not exceed 10 students and all classes will have a minimum of 5 students. If a student skis/rides at an extremely high level, they may be combined with the group that is closest to their ability.

Click here to sign up and purchase tickets for this program: Brighton Ski/Snowboard Program.

Remember, this link is a special price for just our Maeser community! Parents who sign up to ski/board have the option to take lessons or not, the price is the same for the lessons and the passes or just the passes.

The sign-up process can be a little confusing, so we’re including a quick walk-through to help you out: Brighton Ski/Snowboard Program Registration Walk-Through Video.

If you have any questions, please email Laralee Ireland at It should be a fun time on the slopes!
