Aspen Brinkerhoff, a student at Spanish Fork Junior High School, represented students throughout Utah during the Utah PTSA Days at the State Capitol in Salt Lake City. More than 800 Utah students had the opportunity to meet with Utah leaders, participate in mock debates, listen to speakers and explore the Capitol buildings.
This month’s genre for the library’s Journey through the Genre program was romance. If students read a romance book and kept their grades up, they were invited to come to the library and decorate heart-shaped cookies.
The cookies were fun to decorate and even better to eat! Some students decided to decorate extra cookies and deliver them to deserving teachers.
Next month’s genre is mystery, so find a good book now and start reading.
Today, the eighth graders are hearing from presenters from Prevent Child Abuse Utah on Bullying. Students have heard about bullying a lot over the years, but it's always a good reminder of what bullying is and how students really have the power to change the culture of a school. All it takes is one person to stand up for someone, and others will follow. The presenters encouraged our students to look out for others, be a friend, think before they post, and report or ask for help if they are bullied.
Congratulations to our students who competed in the district science fair yesterday! All three were named "Best in Show," with Emmalyse Beecher and Jaxson Marsigli placing in the top ten, and Blaine Bartholomew placing second overall.
They will all be moving on to the Central Utah science fair at BYU.
