 With some Santa hats and ugly sweaters, the Spanish Fork Junior High bands performed very well at the high school on Friday, December 8.

 Each of three bands, Concert Band, Beginning Band, and Jazz Band, performed well and their songs sounded great. Songs included “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “Frosty the Snowman.”

The SFJHS Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced orchestras performed on Monday night to a packed auditorium. 

Mrs. Harman surprised the students by having famous violinist and YouTube star Rob Landes come to the concert and perform.  Landes, whose YouTube channel has almost 30 million views, started play the violin at age 3.  His webpage describes him by say “take a classically-trained violinist who … has two music performance degrees, add a loop pedal and a dash of Ed Sheeran” and that’s Rob Landes.

Spanish Fork Jr. High students gave a Book Buddy to every first grader at Riverview Elementary school. A Book Buddy is a small stuffed toy designed to be small enough to easily fit in the first graders’ desks.  First graders can read out loud to their Book Buddies to improve their reading fluency. 

Testing Popsicle Bridges

In Mr. Madsen’s 7th-grade science class, students tested the Popsicle stick bridges they had made over the course of the week.

The bridge had to span over a foot, and you could use up to 100 Popsicle sticks. They were held together with glue. The goal was to hold 1 kilogram, and students just stacked weights on until it broke.

Food Stylists and Scientists

This week Miss Warren’s College and Career Awareness class talked about food stylists and food scientists. They learned all about what they do.

Seventh graders made their own ice-cream. They got to design, style, and taste test their own ice cream, just like a food scientist and a food stylist. Students chose their own ice cream flavor and toppings. Some of the many toppings were Oreos, cookie dough, M&M’s, chocolate, and caramel to drizzle over the top of it all.

Spirit Night Helps Warm the Sole

The Spanish Fork National Junior Honor Society is sponsoring a Spirit Night for our SFJH family in conjunction with Chick-fil-A.  It is for anyone—everyone!—so invite all you know to have dinner at Chick-fil-A on the night of December 11, 2017.  They will donate a percentage of each meal purchased to SFJH NJHS.  In turn, NJHS will donate this money to our “Warm the Soles” campaign.

Meals can be purchased in-store or when going through the drive through.  Just mention that this order is for SFJH’s Spirit Night.
