Parents, Students and Friends –

 Computer Science Field Trip Opportunity - All SFJHS Girls Invited

Attention all junior high aged girls and their parents - we have an awesome opportunity coming up on Tues, Dec 8.  Nebo's Advanced Learning Center (ALC) in Springville is inviting 7th, 8th, and 9th grade girls to their site in Springville to view a recently released documentary, CodeGirl.  It is about a group of junior and senior high aged girls who make a difference in their community by writing apps and computer programs.  The field trip is Tues, Dec 8, and will last all morning - buses will pick up girls here at SFJHS shortly after school begins and return them back to school in time for lunch and the remainder of the afternoon.  This is a FREE field trip targeting girls who are either really interested in or just curious about computer science.  Girls will view the film and have some popcorn, participate in a few activities, and have a chance to tour the ALC to see what programs and opportunities they can participate in during high school years.  Interested girls can sign up for the field trip in the office (they will need a signed permission form available in the office).  We need to know if you or your student is interested by Thurs, Dec 3.

 4-H Afterschool Clubs

Attention students - It’s time to sign up for December 4-H Afterschool Clubs.  This month we are offering two clubs: Dr. Who Fan Club and Incredible Edibles Club. (Club 1) Whovians unite!  Come and enjoy the fandom of Dr. Who with the Dr. Who Fan Club!  We look forward to making sonic screwdrivers... learning about time travel... and writing our own names in Galifreyan and much, much more! Come and enjoy and bring a friend! (Club 2) Incredible Edible is all about eating, creativity, and fun. Join the club to learn how to make some delicious holiday treats! We'll be making gingerbread houses, reindeer cookies, and so much more.  If you love tasty food that looks great, come and join us for some fun after school in the Incredible Edibles Club. Pick up your enrollment form and register in the main office.   Clubs start on the first week of December and the cost is $5.00 per club.  Don’t delay, sign up today and tell a friend!

 C’s B’s and A’s Before the Holidays

It’s awesome - It’s amazing - It’s C’s B’s and A’s before the Holiday’s - You can earn cash prizes if all of your grades are C or above - Here’s why and how: After Thanksgiving there are only 3 weeks until Christmas and then after Christmas you only have a few days until the end of the term. Because of this, 2nd term is traditionally when student get their lowest grades - we want to change that! We are hoping that every student will take the challenge to stay caught up and have only C’s B’s and A’s by the Holidays so that after Christmas your grades will be in good shape for the end of the term. Here’s how it will work... Every Friday we will randomly select six students (two per grade level) we will look up their grades and if they have only C’s and above they will win five dollars. If the student we looked up has a deficient grade the prize rolls over to the next Friday and a student could win ten dollars. So, get caught up and stay caught up because this contest will continue every Friday until Christmas. - Good Luck!
