Girls Who Code Club

Did you know that you can join the Girls Who Code Club?  Mrs. Mendonsa is the mentor, and this club is a small part of the national Girls Who Code program.  This club takes place on Thursdays during Pack Time and after school in Mrs. Mendonsa’s room. At this club we code and create video games and we are in the process of coding a Raspberry Pi robot.  We always have lots of fun when we code, and we try to help each other on different games. We learn to code using board games, a website called Gamestar Mechanic, and many more programs.

World Civ Students Push for a Revolution!

Mrs. Harmer’s 9th grade World Civilizations classes marched their written complaints and arguments to the school office and posted them on Mr. Christensen’s door in the hopes of starting a school reformation.

Students have been learning about Martin Luther and his Protestant Reformation.  Luther had complaints about the Catholic Church during the Renaissance.  He articulated them in his Ninety-five Theses and posted them on the main doors to the church so everyone could see them.

Spanish Fork Junior High Freshmen have now had this experience of their own!

Freshman Brian Gunyan Takes Second in State

On Saturday, March 23, Brian Gunyan, a Freshman at Spanish Fork Junior High, participated in the varsity section of the Utah State Chess tournament where he took second place in state!

Brian reported, “Unfortunately, I was unable to perform in the official segment due to other obligations. During this tournament, I took second place with 4.5/6 points, one loss and one draw that should have been a win and would have been a win if I had looked at the board for a few more seconds. The winner had 5/6 points.”

“She Tech” Seminar a Huge Success

She Tech was an amazing experience that encourages girls to get involved with technology and science. I enjoyed the entire event and would definitely recommend it to others.

Some of my favorite features include the “Raspberry Pi” class.  Raspberry Pi is a very basic computer you can program to do different things. In the “Girls Who Code” after-school club, we are using this technology to build a robotic dog.
