Shakespeare Competition

By: Tremaine Lomax pictures by Allyson Jones

Day One:

We left at 9:30 on Thursday and after a two and a half hour bus ride we got to SUU (Southern Utah University) for a tour of the campus.  After that, we went to the gift shop, took some pictures, then went to the hotel and chilled. 

 Another bus ride took us to the Tuacahn Center for the Arts, but this one was only a hour long.  We saw “Matilda.”  It was amazing--lots of twists I was not expecting.  Overall I had a fun time.

 We drove back to our hotel and “slept”.

 Day Two:

World History Classes Reconstruct Roman Aqueducts—Out of Garbage!

story by Rillene Nielsen and Shea Harmer pictures by Shea Harmer

Mrs. Harmer is at it again!  First her student made Roman Temples out of school supplies.  Now they are building aqueducts out junk!  As you can tell by the photos, engagement was high as students learned how the ancient Romans got their water.

“My world history class built Roman aqueducts out of trash today,” reported Mrs. Harmer, “and they had an awesome time. They had to build it over 2 desks and have a ping pong ball go through it and land on a paper plate at the bottom without falling off. This simulated Roman aqueducts.”

It was 1:30 p.m. The Spanish Fork Junior High Cross Country team had just been excused from class, 6th period. The team left class and went down to the locker room to change. The team got on the bus, all wearing their uniforms, and were driven to Springville Jr. High. Once they had arrived they piled up their backpacks and walked the course. Because of all the recent rain, the course was really marshy. After walking the course, the team got out a volleyball and a soccer ball and  played around with that for a while.
