We were lucky to have a visit from the MJHS orchestra and band on Tuesday morning. There are many past Hobble Creek Hawks in the orchestra, band and choir. They have an outstanding, award winning instructors Mrs. Deanne Helquist and Emily Smith. They would love to recruit any graduating 6th graders to join next year. Also, Mr. Kevin Diehl is the choir instructor and is very experienced and talented. He always has a large group of boys and girls in his choirs and he would love any of our graduating 6th grades to consider being in the choir next year.

Thanks for visiting us MJHS. We love it when you come and show off your talents.

The Hobble Creek 2nd grade class plays were created from original stories written by our students under the direction of Wendy Gourley, our artist in residence during the month of November. She was here as part of an Arts Project grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, along with the presentation of Native American culture, music and dance by Nino Reyos.It was a great experience for the students to be apart of. Everyone learned a lot from the experience of play creation to performance.
