Boy Scouts place flags in front of Malad homes in memory of 9/11

The motto, “Never Forget” has been taken up as a rallying cry by many Americans to remind people of one of the most terrible days in U.S. history.

The Islamic terrorist group launched four coordinated attacks, hijacking aircraft which crashed into the World Trade Center twin towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. One airplane crashed over Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.

The benefits include providing students with the ability to collaborate in real time, increasing student/teacher and student/student communication, and moving from regular textbooks to digital textbooks.

Students who wish to purchase their Chromebook at the end of their senior year will have the opportunity to do so. As a pilot program, the school will adapt the program as they move forward.

Malad earned 149 points to claim the big win. Firth finished second with 147 points. Challis claimed the third place trophy with 136 points.

Malad knew before they headed off to state that they had won the Academic State Championship for the second year in a row. This is based off the grades of each of the wrestlers compared with all the other teams in the state. It is a great accomplishment for a team to win it two years in a row.

Malad also went into the tournament tied for the most wrestlers competing with 15. It would take every one of those wrestlers and every win they could muster, along with every pin and major decision, to help them claim the State Championship. Malad and Firth went back and forth the entire weekend. It came down to the final match of the tournament. Continue reading
