Romance in the Library

This month’s genre for the library’s Journey through the Genre program was romance. If students read a romance book and kept their grades up, they were invited to come to the library and decorate heart-shaped cookies. 

The cookies were fun to decorate and even better to eat! Some students decided to decorate extra cookies and deliver them to deserving teachers.

Next month’s genre is mystery, so find a good book now and start reading.

SFJH Eighth-Graders are Reminded to Have Each Other’s Backs

Today, the eighth graders are hearing from presenters from Prevent Child Abuse Utah on Bullying. Students have heard about bullying a lot over the years, but it's always a good reminder of what bullying is and how students really have the power to change the culture of a school. All it takes is one person to stand up for someone, and others will follow. The presenters encouraged our students to look out for others, be a friend, think before they post, and report or ask for help if they are bullied.

Seventh Grade Students Learn to Cope with Stress

Over the past two days, our 7th grade CCA classes have attended a presentation on Stress Management presented by the Utah Valley Support & Treatment Center. Students learned about the effects of stress on the body, how to recognize it, and some coping strategies. They taught students skills and suggestions for things to do and people to talk to when dealing with stress and anxiety, including parents, counselors, teachers, and other trusted adults.

Valegrams

On Friday, February 14, the Spanish Fork Junior High Student Council delivered Valegrams to around the school. The way these work is that there are 3 types, there is a small candy, a regular sized candy, and a “Heart Attack”, which is where your “secret admirer” asks for the student council to put hearts all over a locker.
