Congratulations to the middle school boys volleyball team. Wednesday they finished region play and both teams finished their season with an undefeated record. Next week we have the opportunity to play in the state tournament.
Start Looking For Textbooks
Your student’s teachers will soon be instructing them when & how to return their textbooks (it will be before or at the class final). Students will be charged for missing textbooks, so please help your students start gathering textbooks now.

Students who missed all or part of RISE testing or the Utah Aspire Plus test will be scheduled for make-up testing over the next few weeks leading up to Finals. Questions about State testing? Contact Mrs. Myers at email@example.com

Fall 2022 Sports Academic Eligibility
Eligibility for participation in fall activities/sports will be determined by 4th term grades. Students currently in grades 7-11 must earn a 2.7 GPA with no Fs. 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 as long as they have a 2.7 GPA.
All students, middle school and high school, who will be playing sports next year (2022-23) need a physical in order to play. Physicals completed on or after April 15, 2022 will be good until July 15, 2023. Any physicals completed before April 15 of this year will not be accepted (per UHSAA policy) for the upcoming school year.
Here is a link to the UHSAA form which Maeser uses for ALL athletes: UHSAA Physical Form
