Truth | Honor | Virtue

Each week in this new feature, we’ll be celebrating some of the great things our school community is doing!

Thank You!

THANK YOU to all the parents who have brought in snacks and drinks for the faculty lounge this year. It has been a huge lift for our teachers. Sometimes a quick snack in the lounge is the only thing they get a chance to eat during a school day! Thank you, parents!

Maeser Robotics Team Competition

The Maeser Robotics team competition is in 3 weeks. We are proud to announce that we have a driving robot! Now just to get the shooter built! See the video here: Maeser Robot Driving.

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!

Volunteer Opportunities

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!

Sports Announcements

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.

Sports Physicals

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

Are You Missing Important School Communications?

Not getting our emails, phone or text messages? Here’s how to make sure you’re getting all of our important announcements and information:

Opt In For School Text Messages

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts, student fees, and more. We will only use text messaging for urgent and important information.

You can participate in this service by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587.

You can also opt out of text messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

Update Your Contact Information

If any of your contact information has changed – email address, mailing address, phone number – please let us know asap so we can be sure you’re getting school and teacher communications.

Thank you for helping us keep in contact with your family!
