The Jelly Bean Problem 

The local high school was trying to raise money for a class trip by having students pay $1 to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar.  Adam guessed there were forty-three, Bill guessed thirty-four, and Carl guessed forty-one.  One person was off by six, another was off by three, and another was off by one.  How many jellybeans were in the jar? 

This problem will go until NEXT Friday Jan 29th. Be sure to submit clear work or explanation of your answer to receive credit! 

Answer from last week: It would take 12 months. Winners from last week:

SFJH (Finally!) Presents Frozen Jr.

After a long break, the SFJH Drama department was excited and relieved to be able to perform Frozen Jr. Performances were set to happen the week following our COVID dismissal in March 2020. It was heartbreaking when we found out we would be on remote learning through the end of the school year. We had quite a few 9th-grade students in the show that were leaving for SFHS in the fall.
