Project '19 Angels
As an executive council at MHS we have decided to do a service project this Holiday Season! For this service project we will have mason jars in the office and you can donate money to go to a family in need. The mason jars will be by grade level, so for every dollar you donate your grade has the opportunity to earn Buckaroo Chips! Thank you for supporting this servive project, and Happy Holidays!
Sterling Scholar Christmas Angel Tree
The 2019 Sterling Scholars are serving the San Juan Counseling Office with the Christmas Angel Tree. How the Angel Tree works is we put together tags, for example, "3 year old girl, princess doll". This tag would be chosen by someone in the community and they would go out and get the princess doll and bring it back to the Christmas Angel Tree box. Hopefully all the tags are able to be filled! After all the gifts and tags are brought back to the Angel Tree, we (the Sterling Scholars) will wrap the presents and take them down to the Counseling Office in Blanding. Thank you so much in advance for your help in the effort to serve children in our commmunity and county! Happy Holidays!!

State Cross COUNTRY
If you think that dominating Region 19 is exciting, wait till the next week at 1A State Cross Country.
On the brisk Wednesday morning of the State Meet, the Girls raced first. Throughout the thrilling course, Lily Long, a freshman easily stayed in the top 5, as the close of the race, she place fourth overall. The next Lady Buckaroo who placed was sophomore Serra St. Clair with 19th overall, next Lady Buckaroo to cross the finish line was Kennedy Brewer, with 23rd, and the last Lady Buckaroo to cross the threshold, was Halle Morrison in 33rd. The girls raced very well, and swept away a third place trophy!
After the Girls XC team taking the third place trophy, the Boys team raced next. It would be an easy assumption to favor MHS to become repeat State Champions. Yet, you had to be there to see it! Wit the fiery start of the race, Adam Bunker led the way! He was followed closely by Alan Petit, Cory Bunker and Hyrum Johnson. All MHS Boys! As the race closed, Adam crossed the finish line with a time of 16:32.8, he finished so fast, that the staff didn't have time to set up the ribbon for him to break. As he caught his breathe, the staff quickly walked in front of him and he was able to walk through the ribbon. With teammates, Alan, Cory and Hyrum on his heels, the MHS Boys placed 1st Adam Bunker, 2nd Alan Petit, 3rd Cory Bunker, and 4th Hyrum Johnson. This would make a perfect score! As the next top ten runners crossed the finish line, Lucas Hatch snatched 8th place overall. Boston Freestone came in at 11th place and Dylan Bird came in 16th place overall. Thus, naming the MHS Boys Cross Country Team State Champions, back to back. First in 2017 and now in 2018.
With head Coach Reed Anderson, Monticello Buckaroo Football saw an exciting season. With many ups and downs, wins and losses, the boys fought hard. The Bucks played so well they made it to the Quarter Finals were they faced the Rich Rebels. Earlier in the season the Boys played Rich and won, giving hope for this Quarter Final game. As the Boys loaded the bus for the eternal, excruciating, ride to Rich, they were ready to play. The final score of that game was 41-0. With the next week fast approaching the Buckaroos traveled the Payson High School were they would face the Milford Tiger in the Semifinals. With a student bus that travled to the game, the First Ward Youth Conference and many more fans and parents, the Boys fought and ultimately fell to the Tigers. On a postive note, the Boys were led by fantastic seniors, Gage Wilcox #60, Matt Beh #5, and Mark Beh #11.

Hope Run/Walk 5k September 7, 2018
The Hope Run/Walk 5K was a huge success! Many membersof the community came out and supported the ongoing campaign to bring awareness to Suicide and Mental Illness. Each Runner or Walker received a T-shirt with the suicide hotline number, and the Safe UT app logo on the sleeve. Along with a variety of little trinkets, and an entry in the Raffle. The MHS Hope Squad spent the morning marking the route, setting up water stations, cutting fresh fruit and setting up encouragement signs. After the race, there was an opportunity to to win some gifts through the raffle. Also there was gun safe with a sign about suicide awareness, to make sure all firearms are put away in the home. There also is a grant for San Juan County so that if you need a gun safe they will be available to the community for the next five years. If you have any questions about the Hope Squad, Hope Run/Walk, the Gun Safe, feel free to contact the Youth Coalition, and the San Juan County offices.
