Pack Time Begins Tomorrow

Spanish Fork Junior’s Pack Time is designed to motivate and give help to students who may need extra support or are struggling academically. Its purpose is also to reward students who consistently do well in all of their classes at school. 

Each day (except for Mondays) students will have the opportunity to attend either an intervention or an enrichment experience.

• All Students receive a mini-report card during 2nd period that shows their current grade in all classes.

Mrs. Goates, seventh-grade science teacher extraordinaire, is now teaching Biology at SFJH.  And as usual, her ninth-grade students are already having some extraordinary scientific adventures. 

Mrs. Goats reported, “On the first day of school, my biology classes went on a scavenger hunt to see which biological processes they could already recognize outside. We made some great discoveries including this GIANT caterpillar.”

Awesome stuff, Mrs. Goates!  Stay tuned, SFJH parents.  Who knows what else these students will discover.
