Our golf team is in full swing.  Spanish Fork Junior High has some very talented golfers.  None of them are like Tiger Woods, (no one can be that good), but we have kids who know what they're doing when it comes to golf. 

Our school got 2nd overall in the district.  Our lowest scorers (those who helped to achieve the low score of 200) were Creed Seremershein with a score of 45, Mckade Mecham with a score of 49, Bryce Peabody with a score of 51, and Tyler Sanderson with a score of 55.  For those of you who don't know much about golf, the best score is the lowest.

The Drama Club went to the Renaissance Fair held earlier this month up in Provo Canyon at Timpanogos Park , to practice their Shakespeare routines in front of a crowd. They did a great job preforming.  This opportunity helped them get ready to go to Cedar City this month.

The Renaissance Fair showed club members what life was like during the middle age for the peasants and rulers.

Spanish Fork Jr. High was a multicolored mix of animal and plant cells when students from Mr. Hallam's Biology class drew “Cell Art” around the school.

Students got to choose what type of cells they would draw: animal or plant. There were many types of cells on the sidewalks, and lots people noticed them because of their large size and bright colors.  The cells had all the necessary organelles from the mitochondria to the chloroplasts.

Mr. Nelson has been talking about numbers for the past 26 years.   He came to this school to teach math, and has never wanted to leave.  This year he is only teaching 7th grade math but has taught 8th and 9th grade math too.   He really enjoys arithmetic!

Math isn't the only thing he is good at.  He also is quite knowledgeable when it comes to art and science. Before he taught math here at Spanish Fork Jr. High, he was an Art History teacher and a Science teacher.  He says that he enjoyed these other subjects, but was glad he got a chance to work with numbers here at SFJH.

Lying comes easily to some but harder to others. As human beings we are cursed.  We use lying in our everyday lives. Like food and water, some people survive on lying. For some, it has gotten them either further in life; for others it’s gotten them nowhere. Check your self; have you ever ignored the truth to tell a lie?
