Kolton Dudley and Kyle Lunceford took first place in the Stock Market Game sponsored by the Utah State Office of Education. The students participated in the game as part of the Computers in Business class taught by Mr. Ferrin. In the game, teams of students are given a simulated $100,000 and are given 10 weeks to invest the money to try and have the highest amount of equity. Kolton and Kyle at the end of the game had $140,000 dollars in equity, which was more than the other 179 teams in the Junior High/Middle School division.
Eric Ferrin, a math teacher at Spanish Fork Junior High was presented with this month's PEAK award at the January Board meeting. The PEAK award is given to any employee in Nebo School District that demonstrates Positive Energy and Kindness, traits that the superintendent has been emphasizing during this school year. Mr. Ferrin is the first from our school to be honored with this award. Congratulations Mr. Ferrin!!!
I would like to nominate Paul Nelson for Teacher of the Month. Paul is not one that would ever look to be recognized, but he works hard, especially with struggling students. He is patient with the students, and willing to work with them whenever they ask for help. He is truly a quiet, hard, worker in this school that is rarely recognized for his efforts.
December 9 – 15 was Computer Science Education Week and teachers all over the world had their students participate by learning an Hour of Code. Here at Spanish Fork Jr. High Mr. Thacker had his keyboarding and computer technology classes participate in an Hour of Code where the students used computer code to help an Angry Bird navigate a maze to pop a piggy, and used computer code to help a zombie navigate a maze to eat a plant.
