As with most of our wonderful faculty, Kaye Brockbank is under-rated and under-appreciated although over-deserving and over-qualified to win the Crystal Apple Award.

Without a doubt, Kaye is one of the kindest, most selfless teachers and human beings.  She consistently gives of herself—her time, resources, and talents—to build up those around her.  She willingly helps out when others are in a pinch, even when she doesn't have to. Kaye is willing to go the extra mile for her students, her colleagues, and her family. All of her hard work and effort is appreciated.

The top ten students chosen by the judges to represent SFJHS at the district meet are:

CTE Intro Students Tour Thanksgiving Point

Thanks to a very generous donation to the CTE department 100 of our CTE Intro students were able to tour Thanksgiving Point on April 15, 2013.

The students who went on the field trip participated in a walking tour of Thanksgiving Points farm country, the gardens area, retail shops, and the lobby of the dinosaur museum. The guide that Thanksgiving Point provided informed the students of the various careers involved with each area of the venue as well as educational requirements for each career.
