Golf Tryouts

By Alesha LeMmon

Thirty students were out on the links yesterday afternoon trying their very best to become part of what will be an 8-person team. It was a beautiful day and perfect conditions for golf! Thanks to Coach Hansen and the SF Dons Golf Team for all the help getting the golfers through the course. 

Biology Students Make GIANT Discovery

Mrs. Goates, seventh-grade science teacher extraordinaire, is now teaching Biology at SFJH.  And as usual, her ninth-grade students are already having some extraordinary scientific adventures. 

Mrs. Goats reported, “On the first day of school, my biology classes went on a scavenger hunt to see which biological processes they could already recognize outside. We made some great discoveries including this GIANT caterpillar.”

Awesome stuff, Mrs. Goates!  Stay tuned, SFJH parents.  Who knows what else these students will discover.

Cannon Ball!!!

School has started, but we don’t want to give up on summer just yet.  So Spanish Fork Junior High is sponsoring a swim party on Friday September 1st from 3:30 PM until 6:00PM at the Spanish Fork High School Pool.

This the back to school swim party is for all SFJH students and their families as well as the faculty and their families.

The cost is $1 per person.  Just let them know you are with SFJHS.

So grab your suit and sunscreen!  We’ll see you at the pool.

Thinking Like A Scientist

By Alesha LeMmon

Today in Mr. Whiting’s Science 7 classes, students were “thinking like a scientist” as they performed an experiment testing the buoyancy of various objects. Using the scientific method, students had to hypothesize whether the object would float or sink, test by placing objects into water, record their findings, and draw a conclusion about the level to which objects floated or sunk.

Mr. Whiting created an interactive lab for students to examine and learn the scientific method that his classes will use all year as they “think like a scientist”!

Three Cheers for Us!

Spanish Fork Junior High has just hit a new high in the number of followers of our Facebook Page--887! Congrats and thank you to all our new followers.  We appreciate your interest in our school.   But we still are a bit short of our goal.  The District has given us the challenge to have 1350 followers--approximately the same number as our school student population.  And we need to do this before Parent Teacher Conference in September.



Students and Parents,
There is a correction to the calendar items in the weekly Lobo Update you received in email yesterday. Golf tryouts will be on THURSDAY,  AUGUST 24TH at Spanish Oaks Golf Course at 3pm.
There will be a meeting TODAY, Wednesday, August 23rd at 2:45pm in the Little Theater for all students interested in trying out for the team.
We are sorry for any confusion.
