Parents, Students, and Friends –
January was a busy month for the students at SFJHS! We finished out our wrestling season; continued our basketball season; sent attendees to Nebo’s junior high youth board meeting. We celebrated students of the month. The orchestra played in concert with American Idol stars; we remembered Martin Luther King, Jr.; and began rehearsing the school musical. We found joy in our annual HOPE week activities; finished Term 2; and FFA attended the Wasatch Back judging. We went on educational field trips, performed in, and listened to the Nebo Youth Symphony. Most importantly, teachers taught amazing lessons giving students opportunities to learn and grow in all academic areas. We thank you for trusting all of the teachers, technicians, lunch ladies, bus drivers, custodians, coaches, secretaries, administrators, and counselors to help your student succeed and thrive. February, here we come!

Our school science fair will be held Wednesday and Thursday, February 6th and 7th in the library. Judging for the fair will be conducted from 1st to 4th periods on Wednesday. Awards will be presented during 7th period (Wednesday). The open house for viewing projects will be on Thursday during the school day.
STUDENT CELL PHONE USE
Unfortunately, it has become a more and more common occurrence that parents are calling their students during class. If you need to contact your student, please call the front office or text them. When students receive phone calls from parents during class, they think it is an emergency and they need to answer which causes a disruption for the entire class. So please remind your students about good phone etiquette. Thank you!
