State Officer Visits SFJH FFA Class


Here’s a report just in from Ms. Warren and her SFJH FFA class:

“Today, we had a state officer visit my 8th and 9th grade FFA classes.  His name is Wyatt McDaniels; he is the Utah FFA Sentinel this year.” 

“He talked with students about opportunities in FFA.  Students also played leadership games while learning more about our State Association.”

Thanks Ms. Warren for keeping us updated on what’s happening in our Future Farmers.


Ravenous Readers!

by Rillene R. E. Nielsen

One day before the end of term 1, Mrs. Nielsen’s Pod 1 English 7 class accomplish what some thought was impossible.  As a class, they have devoured 100 books!

While some may think this would leave students weary with drooping eyelids and fingers sore from turning pages, this simply is not the case.  Pod 1 is ready to chomp away at their next goal of 100.

Check back often to see when Pods 2 and 3 hit 100.  Right now, Pod 3 has about 10 more to go.  Pod 2, a class of only 25 students, isn’t far behind.

The Great Mentos Experiment

By Rillene Nielsen

You’ve heard about Mentos and Diet Coke, right?  Well, Mr. Bartholomew’s 8th grade science students wanted to know if the number of Mentos dropped into a bottle of Diet Coke affected the height it would shoot up.

Check out their newest video to see their results.

Flaming Bubbles

by Rillene Nielsen and Nate Bartholomew

What do you get when you mix water, a little soap, and a bit of methane gas?  Just ask one of Mr. Bartholomew’s 8th grade science students.

According to Mr. “B”, “Today in science, we looked at chemical reactions involving oxygen.”  The specific reaction students observed is written as CH4 + 2O2 -> CO2 + 2H2O.  If the scientific notation throws you, here is Mr. “B’s” explanation in layman’s terms: “I bubbled methane gas into soapy water, and then lit the bubbles on fire.”
