Math Problem of the Week

Occupation Problem 

Arthur, Bobbi, Cheri, and Dan are at their weekly luncheon. Their occupations are actor, botanist, carpenter, and drummer, but not necessarily in that order. Dan just told the botanist that Cheri was going to be late to the luncheon. Arthur is sitting across from the drummer and next to the carpenter. The drummer never said a word. What is the occupation of each person?

Dancing Sevies are Engaged Sevies

Story by Rillene Nielsen Film by Jaimie Dannelly

Spanish Fork Junior High students are full of surprises.  Take for example this video recently shared by seventh-grade English teacher Jaimie Dannelly.

Ms. Dannelly said that her Sevies, “dance down the hall every day on the way to my class, and they planned something special last week.”   

This says something about what it’s like here at SFJH.  Sure, it’s crazy and goofy sometimes, but when students go out of their way to make the memorable, that means they are engaged.  It means they trust and appreciate their teachers.

And their teachers appreciate them.
