School Fees

All fees must be paid before students can check out and pick up their yearbooks!

Please keep in mind:

  • Fees may still be assessed to your student’s account for missing textbooks, class materials, library books or locks.
  • Any unpaid fees will be rolled over to next school year and will continue to accrue late fees. If your student is graduating, fees will be moved to a sibling account.
  • Your student may not participate in any sports/activities next school year until they have paid any back fees.
  • If you are having trouble paying your fees and/or have extenuating circumstances, please contact the Finance Office ASAP at or call 801-235-9000 and ask for Sam or Michelle. We will do our best to work with you. Thanks!


The printer sent a handful of extra yearbooks, so if you act quickly you can still purchase one! If you miss the window, you may add your name to the waiting list in case more become available. Visit the front office to do so. You may also still order a year-end insert ($2) and/or a yearbook DVD through this Monday, May 20.

Maeser Summer Reading Program

One of summer’s great joys is finding yourself engrossed in a great book. This year’s community text is Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Students and families are encouraged to read this book together and discuss its important themes. Information about the Summer Reading Program can be found here: Summer Reading Program.

We will be sending out a survey at the beginning of the school year to find out who’s been reading what. Send any questions to Mr. Simmons (

Summer Driver Education Class

There will be a driver education class at Maeser Prep June 3-13 starting at 9:00am. The sign-up sheet will be at the front desk.

Show Choir Auditions

Interested in joining Show Choir next year? (or being an accompanist?) Come audition! Sign up for a time, pick up a short piece of music from Ms. Smith, and come sing! Monday, May 20th in the music room. Sign up sheet is outside the music room door. Juniors and Seniors only. (Sophomores with special permission).

2019-20 Concurrent Enrollment Classes

Students planning on taking a Concurrent Enrollment class during the 2019/20 school year (next year) should begin the enrollment and registration process with UVU now! Go to and follow the steps.

Host Families Needed for Foreign Exchange Students

We still need host families for foreign exchange students who will be coming to Maeser this year! Foreign exchange students make a great contribution to our school, our community, and to your family. Students are carefully selected and screened, and they come with their own health insurance and spending money — all that is required from you is a bed, board and welcome. If your family is interested in hosting an exchange student this year, please call Wendy Waldes for more information: or 801-709-3583.

Sports Announcements

Planning to Play Sports in College?

Students planning on playing sports in college need to be registered with NCAA. Please speak with Mrs. Sorenson for details!

Sports Banquet

The 2018-19 Sports Banquet is scheduled for Tuesday, May 21st at 6:00pm in the gym. This is for all high school students who participated in a sport. Last names A-J bring an appetizer and K-Z a dessert.

Cross Country Fall 2019 Meeting

Meeting will be held in the gym on Tuesday, May 21st from 3:35 – 3:50. We will discuss summer training, season details, etc… Contact Coach Kemper ( if you are interested and unable to make it to the meeting.

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.
