 Last Chance to Participate in This Year’s Veterans Day Project

For the Veteran's Day Assembly this year, we are trying something new. We want to put together a slideshow of photos with family members of our students who are veterans (parents, siblings, grandparents, etc.).  We have set up a Gmail account to receive photos. It is sfjhsveterans2016@gmail.com   Please include the following in your email: (1) the photo attached, (2) the student’s name, (3) the name of the veteran in the photo and relationship to the student, and (4) which branch of the military they served in. Thank you to the many people that have already participated and we are hoping that still more will send in their photos.

 Lobos in Action

Congratulations to our 9th grade students that participated in the Rocky Mountain Invitational at BYU for marching band and color guard. Colton Engle plays the trumpet in the marching band and they took second place. Madelyn Froelich, Katelyn Porter, and Natalie Kuhni dance with the color guard and they took first place, winning a caption award. Way to go!

 Our FFA students competed at Snow College this last week in livestock evaluation, veterinary science, dairy cattle evaluation and horse evaluation. They had a great time and were competitive in their contests including competing against many High Schools.  One of our livestock teams was 3rd place over all!
