Thank You PTA

We have an amazing PTA at Spanish Fork Junior High.  In this week alone, they invited teachers to come peruse the offerings at the book fair ahead of the students; supplied us with lunch while we looked; managed a well-organized, well stocked book fair, all week long, so students could find their favorite titles; extended the fair hours, so parents could stop by during Parent/Teacher Conference Thursday night; AND fed teachers dinner prior to PTC.

They did all this with smiling faces and loving hearts!

Everyday Strong

Our school counseling and psychology team presented the Everyday Strong program during Parent Teacher Conferences. 

Everyday Strong is a new approach to anxiety and depression.  Its objective?  Give parents, teachers, neighbors, and other trusted adults the tools to build resilient children.  The focus is on fostering safety, connection, and confidence in the students around us.

Fall Captains’ Academy

Fall Sports Captains’ Academy was a success!  After being chosen to represent their fall sports teams, the Captains were able to attend the Academy and learn many great and important things. 

 They learned how important it is to get enough sleep, how to exude good sportsmanship, and how to lead others by example. 

 Captains’ Academy is always a great experience for all that attend!
