Business Letters

The 7th graders in Mr. Lawrence's classes have been receiving responses to business letters they wrote and mailed before Christmas break. They practiced format and audience while either complementing or complaining about various products. This was a fun, real-life activity for the students. We have posted 60 or so of the responses on the ceiling of our bungalow. The responses have been entertaining to read as a class. Some companies have even sent coupons and gift certificates to the students!

Parents, Students, and Friends -

UPDATING CONTACT INFORMATION IN ASPIRE

Because of our recent lockout we needed to communicate through our alert system by text message to parents. We found there were some parents and guardians who did not receive the text message. As we researched the reasons this happened, we found that cell numbers were listed as residence in most cases. The system we use sees a residence phone number and thinks it is a landline, therefore, it will not send the message to that number.

SFJHS Choir Sings at Hockey Game

On Friday February 8, the Spanish Fork Junior High choirs went on a field trip to the Grizzlies Hockey Game in West Valley City. The buses left shortly after four and arrived with plenty of time to do a sound check, find their seats, and explore the Maverik Center. Just before the opening lineup, the choirs were brought out onto the ice. After the opening lineup was announced, the entire Grizzlies team warmed up on the ice, skating around the choirs.

Lobo Ballers Are District Boys’ Champions!

This week was the District Boys basketball tournament.

It started with a tough battle against Diamond Fork on Monday where things did not always go our way. That didn't stop us from working hard and putting ourselves in the best situation for a big win.

Tuesday night was the championship game over at the high school: Spanish Fork Junior High School against Mapleton Junior. There was a huge crowd, but the players had been working hard and preparing themselves for just this moment.
