Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Amy EwellrMany of the students at Mt. Nebo Jr. High School lack the basic nutrition and school supplies to successfully participate in class on a daily basis. We are currently fed by all Title I elementary schools and so our need is tremendous, with over 50% of our students currently qualifying as economically disadvantaged. At MNJHS, we are constantly working to provide our students with bagged food kits, warm clothing, and even basic school supplies.

To meet those needs, MNJHS is excited to announce the creation of an in-school dedicated “Panther Pantry” to help our at-risk, homeless and low-income students. With the creation of our new Panther Pantry, our students will be able to get free gently used or new clothing, including warm winter coats, bagged food kits so they have food to get them through the weekend and school supplies. School should be a refuge from the storms of poverty. Our students will be able to get some of that extra protection from our new pantry.

Anyone interested in donating to the creation and maintenance of the Panther Pantry can visit: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/focus-on-school-not-hunger/2807216/. Small acts of kindness can transform the world!
