Pack Time for Everyone


Pack Time has become part of our culture over the last few years. Teachers are able to help students with assignments and tests while those with Cs, Bs, and As can go to various enrichment activities such as the gym, library, Girls Who Code, chess, and even ping pong and video games in the Lobo Den to name a few. This allows teachers to send quality time with students who need help. 

SFJH Fine Arts Goes Big This Season

It has been a busy month for SFJHS Fine Arts Department! Keeping up with the these teachers and students is a full time job around here! We have seen the wonderful musical, She Loves Me, from Miss Holley and her acting and technical crews, and concerts by Mr. Kavenaugh's choirs. Mrs. Olsen's and Mrs. Harman's orchestras and Miss Johnson's bands have graced us with beautiful melodies! All have been great performances by many talented and dedicated students. 

Band Concert

by Audrey Thaler

Spanish Fork Junior High School recently had a band concert this last Wednesday, December 19th. The concert took place in the Spanish Fork High School auditorium. The one hour band concert was directed by Ms. Bridgett Johnson. If you were not feeling the holiday spirit before the concert you sure were after! The music was full of holiday cheer. It was cold outside but, when you heard the music, you were warmed up by the festive music. You could tell that our school’s band worked very hard on these amazing songs.

We recently had the opportunity to compete in a Christmas Tree decorating activity at Young Living Lavender Farms where we competed against Payson, Mt. Nebo, and Juab FFA. Our FFA Officers really enjoyed the experience from planning and designing, to the last step of putting the topper on the tree for thousands of people to see. It was a great opportunity for us to shed some light upon our hidden talents in tree decorating and make Christmas just a little bit better for a family in need. We look forward to this activity every year!

Mrs. Harmer’s 9th grade world civilizations classes built a trench, were issued rations, and wrote letters home as if they were soldiers during World War 1 after learning about trench warfare.

They also learned about harsh conditions, diseases, and other hardships of trench life.

Penny Wars

by Trevin Barton

Last week at SFJHS we had Penny Wars. Penny Wars is a competition between all the classes. All the money raised goes to Warm the Soles which gives shoes to children in need. Each day of the week, we had different challenges. For example, on Monday it was highest nickel count and on Thursday it was the lowest penny count. Although, there was a catch, you were able to penny bomb people! This is when you get a lot of pennies and go put them in a different classes jar. One teacher even bombed Coach Carlson’s class with 25 dollars worth of pennies. That's a lot of pennies!
