We are noticing an increased amount of tardies this semester. This is unrelated to timing of passing periods. First period, even with the later start time, is becoming increasingly an issue. This is cutting into class time and is a distraction. Fifth period is also an issue, but not as egregious as first. (Fifth is usually those high school students who have gone off campus for lunch and return late.)

Please talk with your students about this, as it does affect their grades (NGs) and disrupts class. Thank you for your help in keeping our culture strong. As a reminder, campus is open beginning at 7:00am on school days for students to be dropped off as carpool schedules may need.

Summer School

We are putting the final touches on summer school. This summer the format will be very similar to our Credit Recovery Winterim. The plan is to have two sessions.

  • Session 1: June 10-21, 9-12 pm M-F
  • Session 2: June 17-28, 9-12 pm M-F

More information on this will be included in a parent/student letter that will go home in the next few weeks. Students who did not complete remediation during Winterim or who have failed any courses during Semester 2 will be expected to attend summer school.

Science Fair News and Winners

Congratulations to those students that qualified and competed at the CUSEF BYU Science Fair!

The participants were: J Stump, Scout Jones, Owen Okolowitz, Eliana Herbert, Daphne Plott, Colin Murphy, Devyn Giles, Ben Gubler and Seth Leavitt.

Great job representing Maeser!

Silent Auction

NHS is looking for some items/gift cards/services that we could raffle off during Dancing with the Teachers. If you have something you would be willing to donate, please contact Nicole Murray ( All donations count towards your family’s service hour requirement for Maeser!

Activities/Sports Eligibility for 1st Term 2019-2020

Do you plan on participating in a sport/activity during the 1st term of the 2019-2020 school year? If the answer is yes then your eligibility will be based on your 4th term grades THIS YEAR. That is correct, the grades you earn this term will determine whether or not you can participate and this applies to all current 7th-11th graders. The standard is a 2.7 GPA with no Fs/NGs. An additional requirement for high school students is no Fs/NGs from any previous high school terms. The good news: if you have an F/NG during any previous terms you will have the summer to make them up if needed.
