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.
Saturday, December 7, 2013 marked the annual finals for Utah’s Make It with Wool competition. This year’s sew fest was held at Mapleton Junior High. Fifty-seven entrant from across the state competed in three categories: preteen (11 and under), juniors (12-15), and seniors (16-24). There is also an adult category.
Hannah Argyle, a student here at SFJH, took top honors in the junior category with her skirt and jacket entry. This qualifies her to go on to the national finals held in Charleston, South Carolina in January 23-25, 2014.
On Saturday, December 7th, 2013, five SFJHS students competed in the western regional Foot Locker 3 mile cross country race held in Walnut, California. Running with the Pack were Amanda Olsen, Taya Hoover, Devin King, Nate Hanson, and Heston Anderson.
Despite the wet weather, Heston placed 35th overall in the freshman/sophomore race. Congratulations Lobos!

Spanish Fork Junior High Students know the best way to celebrate Thanksgiving is to share. Students have been collecting food donations for a local food bank for the past week. Bags were loaded up late this afternoon and loaded into the back of a pick-up for transport. YES! They filled the entire bed up!
Great job, SFJH students. Needy families will find the holidays as little easier because of your generosity.
Mrs. Peterson’s honors history class got the privilege of going to The Crandall Historic Printing Museum in Provo. We were welcomed by the founder of the museum and 2 other caretakers. Their humorous spirit and love for their job made the trip not only a learning experience, but engaging as well.
