A Pig with Heart

By Drew Nielsen

On February 8, 2018, the students in Mrs. Mendonsa’s class had a great and wonderful time watching Mrs. Mendonsa share with them parts of a pig. She brought a pig heart, lungs, esophagus, and larynx into class with her.

With a shop vacuum, she was able to blow the pig lungs up and show how the lungs of a pig and human work.

With the pig heart, she showed us how many chambers it had and where most of the organs attached to the heart in order for everything to work out. The class had a fun time and was able to learn about the inside of a pig.

Speed Date with a Book!

by Jaimie Dannelly

Mrs. Wilson provided a special treat in the library for some lucky 7th grade Reading classes on Valentines Day. The students got to "speed date" with their favorite books. They took turns sharing what they loved about their book to try and help their classmates find new reading material. The students had lively conversations and ended the activity with a sweet sugar cookie treat. Thanks to Mrs. Wilson for putting together this awesome activity!

Lady Lobos Conquer Springville’s Lady Knights

by Shae Harmer with Rillene Nielsen

The semi-finals game was a hard fought battle for the Lady Lobos who took on the Springville Lady Knights. The Lobos offense got off to a slow start; they struggled to get into a rhythm the entire first half. Springville, however, came to play. They were very aggressive and scrappy. The Lady Lobos ended up going into half time down by 2 points.
