*Topaz, Utah 1942 – Hundreds of Japanese-Americans just arrived at their new home. They are clueless on how long they will be here or even what it’s going to be like. A few years later, it’s time to leave. They pack up and resume their life elsewhere. Not everything was taken and many things were left behind, soon to be forgotten. Seventy years later, a group of students want to dig up these forgotten treasures and listen to the stories they tell.
The first locker clean out will be on May 15 during pack time and the final locker clean out will be May 22 during 7th period. After May 22 students will not be able to use their lockers anymore.
Students, please start cleaning out unnecessary stuff before Tuesday if possible...especially cleaning out stickers, graffiti, etc. We're coming up on the end, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!
The concert is this Thursday, May 10, at the Spanish Fork High School Auditorium. Concert is from 6pm- about 7:30. Then the High School Concert begins after a short break.
This will feature our Lobo Wind Ensemble who earned Superior Minus at the Nebo Concert Band Assessment, Combined Symphonic Band, and our Lobo Jazz Band who earned straight Superiors at the first annual Nebo Jazz Band Assessment. The Jazz Band will feature guests from our Show Choir. After the Jr. High performs, there will be a short break and then the High School groups will perform their concert.
The end of the school year can be a schedule nightmare, but for those who scheduled in a night to attend the choir's final performance on Thursday May 3, were treated to a musical dream. Choir Director, Sharon Hopkins, displayed her brilliant and talented students and high-lighted specials songs from a year of hard work.
All of the choirs combined to sing a stirring rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner". They continued to blend their beautiful voices as they sang a fun medley of songs from the musical Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat.
This Thursday May 3rd is our school's choir concert! All are invited to attend! This will be very entertaining and enjoyable. The concert will begin at 5:30 in the Little Theatre/Cafeteria. All the school choirs will be performing. The concert is free of charge.
April 19, 2012- 35 students from Spanish Fork Junior High had the opportunity to go to the new Utah Valley University Science building the day before it was open to the public. This building is 160,000 square feet and has many different classes for students to take in college. The new building has its own uniqueness in architecture throughout the building. There are rooms for students to study in with groups, relax and do homework, and rooms to experiment.
