Truth | Honor | Virtue
Each week in this new feature, we’ll be celebrating some of the great things our school community is doing!
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society was able to raise over $1400 on behalf of Africompassion during last week’s “Happy Meal Wars”. All proceeds will be matched by Doterra. Additionally, student Owen Okolowitz will have the honor of drinking a liquid Happy Meal alongside Mrs. MacDuff. Congratulations to the National Honor Socieyt on this successful kick-off to their fundraising campaign on behalf of Africompassion!
MS Leprechaun Games
Friday March 18 from 12-1 middle schoolers are invited to attend the Leprechaun Games in the cafeteria. There will be relay races involving mashed potatoes, limbo, 3 legged squat races, and prizes.
HS Stag Formal
The Stag Formal is a formal non-date dance that will be on Friday, March 18th, from 8:00-11:00pm at the school! Admission will be $10, and it’s fairytale-themed so there’ll be a carriage at the event. Don your tiaras and capes, and we’ll see you all there!
Our exits are right-hand turn only during high traffic times (carpool). There are signs. Good rule of thumb: if there is someone behind you, always turn right!
Senior Mentoring Breakfast
Senior Mentoring Breakfast needs volunteers to help with breakfast foods. This is an annual event hosted by the Counseling department that gives our current seniors opportunities to network and ask questions of our Maeser Alumni about post-graduate opportunities and tips. For more details and to sign up, please visit our SignUpGenius: Senior Mentoring Breakfast.
MS Leprechaun Games
Middle School Student Council needs supplies for The Leprechaun Games on Friday, March 18th from 12-1pm. For more details and to sign up, please visit our SignUpGenius: MS Leprechaun Games. Email Ms. Sadler at email@example.com with questions.
Maeser Appreciation Week
Maeser Appreciation Week is coming in May! In preparation for the week, please check out our sign-up sheet for needs: Maeser Appreciation Week. THANK YOU in advance for supporting our Maeser team! For every $5 spent = 1 volunteer hour.
Report Your Volunteer Hours
DON’T FORGET! Report your volunteer hours once you’ve dropped off your donation: Report Parent Service Hours. Each $5 spent for donations counts as one hour of volunteer service!
HS & MS Ultimate Frisbee
Maeser has a strong Ultimate Frisbee program and we’d love you to join for the Spring season! Early-morning practices start March 21 with games and tournaments scheduled through May 26. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Q3 Sports Academic Eligibility
Eligibility for participation in any sports/activities during the 3rd term will be based on 2nd term grades. Students (7th-12th) must have earned a 2.7 GPA with no Fs/NGs. In addition, high school students cannot have any Fs/NGs/Incompletes from previous high school terms. If the F/NG/Incomplete is made up by the beginning of the sports season they will be able to participate.
All students (middle school and high school) who will be playing sports this year need a physical in order to play. Here is a link to the UHSAA form which Maeser uses for ALL athletes: UHSAA Physical Form
Maeser Sports Guide
For a list of the sports that are available at Maeser for both MS and HS students, click here: 2021-22 Maeser Sports Guide. The Fall Sports Guide includes whether the team is boys, girls, or coed, when tryouts are, who the coach is, and the coach’s contact information, if it is available.
