It’s great for learning and even relaxing! Students in the Academy of Energy and Power at Maplewood High School just finished installing a waterfall with the help of the Nashville Zoo and MNPS Maintenance. Their plans are to use the waterfall for reference and research as they work through related topics in their chemistry, physics, math and engineering classes, in addition to the beautification is gives the campus!

The project began in September when the class sat down with Terry Wakefield, designer of the water features at the Nashville Zoo, and started drawing plans for the water feature. Once the design was complete, the MNPS Maintenance Department trained the students in the installation of the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter System to insure the electrical safety of the waterfall.

The water starts flowing Friday, Dec. 7, at 9 a.m., in a special ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Maplewood Showstoppers performed at the grand opening of a Fifth Third Bank last Saturday, July 14.

The Maplewood Showstoppers' "Black Cat Band" performed outside the new Madison bank branch, and were even joined by a famous sabre-toothed mascot - Gnash from the Nashville Predators!

Despite the weather and having to reroute the sound, sound board and speakers due to the rain, the dedicated students were able to perform for a very enthusiastic crowd. The band played songs from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and the Temptations.

Fifth Third has asked for the band to come back and perform at future events. The performance was Maplewood's way of saying "thank you" to Fifth Third and giving back to an amazing Academy partner.

Big congratulations are due to three Metro high schoolers who are so determined to go to college they just received a combine $60,000 in scholarships from Dell Computers!

Brandon P. and Escarlet E., both of McGavock, and Dustin Binkley of Maplewood were all named 2012
Dell Scholars. The Dell Scholars program honors students who have a strong determination to succeed and great academic potential.

That's exactly why Brandon, Escarlet, and Dustin participate in the
AVID program at their schools. AVID stands for 'Advancement via Individual Determination' and is designed for students who have a determination to graduate and attend college. AVID students work on their own and with tutors to learn study skills, leadership skills, test taking skills, organization skills, career opportunities, and time management as well as many other strategies for success in high school, college, careers, and life.

It took a lot of hard work to get where they are, and we say congratulations to all three of them. You are all stellar students!

P.S. - If Dustin's name looks familiar, it's because he was also the winner of this year's
Hume Award for athletic sportsmanship and academic achievement AND he played on Maplewood's near-championship football team. What a year this guy's had!


Last Sunday Maplewood High School students Brien H. and Sengphachane P., parent volunteer Ms. Kizer, and Maplewood High teacher Chiquithia Fells, volunteered for the March of Dimes March for Babies representing Future Business Leaders of America. The volunteers committed more than three hours of their time to the information booth during the charity event.

Thanks for getting involved, Maplewood!

Held in Nashville at the War Auditorium and Legislative Plaza, this year’s theme was "LEAD Where You Are; Re-Think the Possibilities!"

Students participated in a collaborative effort to nurture practical and real-life learning opportunities that will increase retention and graduation rates among Tennessee students. Maplewood students participated in innovative sessions featuring high-powered speakers, a tour of Fisk University, and a viewing of the new movie Red Tails, the story of the Tuskegee Airmen.

During the conference, several of the students also enjoyed a meet-and-greet with Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam. Those selected to attend the meeting have exhibited true leadership skills throughout their time at Maplewood. Air Force JROTC Cadet Alejandro Villacorta was selected to present an appreciation plaque to Rick Drelling, Dollar General CEO. Cadets also met the Honorable John DeBerry, Jr., and the President of Fisk University.  As if all that weren't enough, cadets Stephen Pack, Jeffrey Dartis, and Tony Keoudomxay were selected to participate in videos for future EEOG Conferences. Congrats!
