Parents, Students and Friends –

 Upcoming Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held this Thursday, September 29th from 3:30 – 8:00pm  - Parents, we invite you to come visit your student’s teachers and get to know each teacher’s plan for your student’s success.

 SIS/Aspire (check your student’s grades)

Aspire is a valuable tool for both parents and students.  You can check your student’s grades, attendance and citizenship marks.  When you click on a class name you are able to see individual assignments and scores in that class.  We encourage all parents and students to use Aspire on a regular basis to stay informed. Because Aspire is web based, it can be accessed anywhere by following this link - or by clicking on the SIS/Aspire link on the SFJHS website. If you have never used Aspire before, signing up for an account is fast and simple. Just follow the link and click “request a user name” below the login box. You will need to have your student’s ID number (lunch number) and birthday to create a parent/guardian account.

 Counselor Corner

We are encouraging everyone at Spanish Fork Junior High to Choose2Matter.  If you look around you'll see the Choose2Matter Manisfesto or parts of it around the school.  It reads: You are Enough.  You have Influence.  You have a Gift that others need.  Your Actions define your Impact.  You are a Genius.  You have Contributions to make.  You are the Change.  You Matter!
