Mrs. Harmer’s 9th grade Social Studies classes made Greek temples this week. 

Students built their temples out of common school supplies.  This activity helped solidify students’ understanding of Greek architecture, column types, and the various parts of Greek temples.

Students also had to dedicate their temple to something they held in high regards like music, sports, or even Taco Bell!

Students in Mrs. Thompson’s eighth grade English classes have been busy reflecting on some of the social issues teens contend with?  Who can they go to for advice?

Dear Abby, of course.

Mrs. Thompson’s students first examined mentor texts—copies of past Dear Abby articles—looking at their traits and characteristic structures.  Then they considered topics for their “reader letters” and imitated Dear Abby’s style for her “response.”

Congratulations to our winners!  Felicidades!

Spanish Fork Junior High’s annual Fall Hike took place on Wednesday Sept. 19th.  And those who boarded the bus this morning were in for a real treat. 

We hiked to Stewart Falls up Provo Canyon above the Sundance Ski Resort.  The country we were hiking through was beautiful and the weather was perfect.  Stewart Fall is one of the most beautiful and picturesque place along the Wasatch Front.  The waterfall is over two hundred feet high and flows over two tiers.  The fall colors can be magnificent.
