Lobo Update 9/10/18


Parents, Students, and Friends -


As we live The Lobo Way, look for ways this week to recognize the good in others. This is part of STRENGTHENING THE PACK. Teachers and students, when you see the good in others, tell them what you saw and how it impacted you. Come to the office and share your experience with Mr. Christensen, Mrs. LeMmon, or Mr. Mortensen for a small treat!

Our first Cross-Country meet was a great success! We competed against all schools in the district at Mapleton Jr. High.

Our captains, Sarah Seeley and George Heywood, led the team in stretches before the race which started with a big Lobo cheer! Our team did a fantastic job encouraging each other to run their best.

The girls’ team took 4th place and the boys’ team took 5th. Ryan Olson, 7th grade, took first place overall in the boys race.

Coach Brooks and Coach Zacharias are proud of each runner and excited to see what the rest of the season brings. GO LOBOS!

AP Students Build the World

story and pictures by Lois Terry

Recently, my AP Human Geography class was challenged to "Build the World." 

They were given 135 mixed-up pieces of a HUGE world map and challenged to put it together as quickly as they could.  It took them 20 minutes and they had to rotate it once to fit it into the hall, but they managed to work together as a group and get it done. 

Well done, AP HuGgers!!

by Rillene Nielsen
Earlier this week, the Spanish Fork Junior High golf team found itself at Spanish Oaks Golf Course competing against other junior high teams in the district.
Prior to the game, this reporter caught a bit of Coach Nate Bartholomew's pregame pep-talk.  While the video doesn't show much of the in depth strategizing,  golfers were intent on listening to Coach's plans for the game.

Focused on Student Growth Community Meetings
