YOGA!!!!  Yoga is a fun way to help your body relax and calm down.  It is also a great workout!  Many students in our junior high school get a small taste of what yoga is like in Coach Johnson's Body Conditioning class.  Once they’ve been introduced to this form of working out, many enjoy it! 

Yoga will also help with one’s flexibility and many other aspects of their athletic careers.

The 8th grade US History classes had the opportunity to visit the Utah state capitol building on Friday and got to see government working full throttle.

Students watched a session of Congress in which the families of Utah’s fallen soldiers were honored and  took a peek at the building’s new earthquake absorption mechanisms.  They spoke with Representative Mike McKell and got a special tour of the Supreme Court from him and our own Mayor Leifson.  They even got to have a question and answer period with Senator Diedre Henderson!

On February 8, 2018, the students in Mrs. Mendonsa’s class had a great and wonderful time watching Mrs. Mendonsa share with them parts of a pig. She brought a pig heart, lungs, esophagus, and larynx into class with her.

With a shop vacuum, she was able to blow the pig lungs up and show how the lungs of a pig and human work.

With the pig heart, she showed us how many chambers it had and where most of the organs attached to the heart in order for everything to work out. The class had a fun time and was able to learn about the inside of a pig.

Mrs. Wilson provided a special treat in the library for some lucky 7th grade Reading classes on Valentines Day. The students got to "speed date" with their favorite books. They took turns sharing what they loved about their book to try and help their classmates find new reading material. The students had lively conversations and ended the activity with a sweet sugar cookie treat. Thanks to Mrs. Wilson for putting together this awesome activity!
