by: Chris Thompson

Spanish Fork Junior High English teacher, Rillene Nielsen, had the distinguished opportunity of presenting at the NCTE Annual Convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada. During a November 17 Saturday breakout session, Nielsen and her co-presenters led a philosophical discussion, encouraging English teachers to see themselves as “Englishists” whose specialty lies in the literature they love. Participants considered the different ways scientists, historians, or even artists might read and interpret texts, then juxtaposed those practices with those of the devoted “Englishist.”

Over 100 ninth-grade World Studies students visited the Krishna Temple this past week.  The students were able to experience a buffet lunch, tame the llamas, feed the fish, stretch their muscles with yoga, and learned about another culture.

SFJH Golfers

By Mateen Lomax

Our golf team is in full swing.  Spanish Fork Junior High has some very talented golfers.  None of them are like Tiger Woods, (no one can be that good), but we have kids who know what they're doing when it comes to golf. 

Our school got 2nd overall in the district.  Our lowest scorers (those who helped to achieve the low score of 200) were Creed Seremershein with a score of 45, Mckade Mecham with a score of 49, Bryce Peabody with a score of 51, and Tyler Sanderson with a score of 55.  For those of you who don't know much about golf, the best score is the lowest.
