Students in 7th grade Language Arts played a fun variation of the old “Kick Me” trick this month to learn about analogies. 

Instead of having a “kick me” sticker stuck on students’ backs, the stickers are words that are the answer to an analogy. Analogies are word pairs that show relationships between ideas such as hot is to cold as wet is to dry.

On October 24th, 2017, the SFJHS Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Orchestras performed at the Spanish Fork High School’s auditorium. With the concert being so close to Halloween, the orchestras dressed up in costumes. The Sixth Grade Orchestra also came and performed two songs with the Beginning Orchestra ("Sourwood Mountain" and "John Ryan's Polka"). There were all sorts of costumes at the affair. There were a ton of Star Wars costumes but most of the costumes were different.

NJHS has been really busy this term!  They’ve helped at two elementary school carnivals.  They headed up a Saturday clean up on the Spanish Fork River Trail. 

More recently, they did some painting here at the school.  They’ve even entered a scarecrow at the Thanksgiving Point Scarecrow Festival.

It’s been fun.

Ms. Terry’s 9th grade Geography classes were “Playing with Economic Systems” today.  They had recently learned about three different types of economic systems and had this opportunity to test their knowledge with some rousing games of Rock-Paper-Scissors.  

They got to experience Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism using currency that was equal to one M&M.  The students had a lot of fun while getting to understand firsthand what each economic system was all about.  Mr. Mortensen even joined in on the fun.

SFJH students use their writing, math, and art skills to create one of a kind board games!

Students in Miss Brooks’ 7th grade honors math class were given the task to create a game that requires students to practice all operations of integers.

Students used English/Language Arts skills to write clear and organized directions.  Many included artistic influences for the games themselves.

Everyone had a great time teaching other classmates how to play their games. Mr. Youd’s students even joined the fun by allowing our classes to teach the games to them.
