This Tuesday was the first Reader’s Cafe. Reader’s Cafe is a thing the library does for the students at the Jr. High. It happens every last Tuesday of every month. If you sign up for the Reader’s Cafe, you go to the library and have a treat and listen to a teacher tell you about a few of their favorite books during pack time.

This Tuesday Mrs. Freeland spoke about five of her favorite books, while the students that signed up ate doughnuts. Mrs. Freeland likes historical fiction.

Running Lobos Finish First

Our Lobo cross-country team performed exceptionally last Friday despite the challenging weather and intimidating rivals. 

Coach Lynn and Mitchell have enjoyed pushing the athletes to their limits during practices to prepare them for races. They are proud of the many girls and boys who finished in their record time and cheered for each other. 

They are also pleased with the boys’ team who worked together to finish 1st place against Salem, Diamond Fork and Mapleton.
