On Friday, September 28th, our Cross Country team hosted our 4th meet of the season!  We had three schools participate with us, Diamond Fork, Mt. Nebo, and Mapleton. For the girls heat we had Mapleton pull off the win, and for the boys heat, Mapleton also took the win.  We had a turnout of over one hundred boys and girls attend our home Cross Country meet. We hope that our Lobos will continue to do their very best and improve through the rest of the season.

9th Graders Build Greek Temples

by Shea Harmer

Mrs. Harmer’s 9th grade Social Studies classes made Greek temples this week. 

Students built their temples out of common school supplies.  This activity helped solidify students’ understanding of Greek architecture, column types, and the various parts of Greek temples.

Students also had to dedicate their temple to something they held in high regards like music, sports, or even Taco Bell!

Mrs. Thompson’s Classes Tackle Tough Issues

by Rillene Nielsen

Students in Mrs. Thompson’s eighth grade English classes have been busy reflecting on some of the social issues teens contend with?  Who can they go to for advice?

Dear Abby, of course.

Mrs. Thompson’s students first examined mentor texts—copies of past Dear Abby articles—looking at their traits and characteristic structures.  Then they considered topics for their “reader letters” and imitated Dear Abby’s style for her “response.”

Students in Mrs. Kelly's Foods 1 class recently competed against each other in a Fresh Salsa competition.  After learning basic knife skills,  lab groups were given ingredients and one class period to create the best salsa.  Each finished product was judged by Señor Moss's 6th period Spanish 1 class. Congratulations to our winners!  Felicidades!
