Meanwhile, Mr. Jackson and Mr.

Recycling Helps Environment and Earns Cash For School

Did you know that Spanish Fork Junior High participates in constant fundraising through recycling?  

You can help your school get some easy money, and keep it clean at the same time.  All there is to do is put unwanted papers in the blue recycling bins. It’s just that easy.

Each paper recycled gets the school a little money, but over time it adds up. This ultimately helps you in your school work by upgrading the computers, the programs on the computers, and other school resources. 

For other tips on recycling, check with our resident recycler   Mr. Cornaby!


Watch Your Step on the New Track

Have you seen the new track yet? If you haven’t, then you might want to check it out. The track behind the school is new and improved!

The old track has been refurbished.  It has six newly painted lanes, a rubberized surface, and now includes high jump and long jump areas.

The best things about it is that anyone can use it, and it will be wonderful for track meets.   Mr. Bake told The Lobo Howl that he and Mr. David Huff attended a meeting with other principals to decide which schools would receive updating.  “It was a combined decision that our school got a new track.”
