Spike-Ball a Big Hit in PE

The new craze in PE is Spike-ball!  It’s a fast paced, intense game where a pair of teammates plays against each other, trying to score points as the ball “spikes” off a trampoline net.

The rules are very similar to volleyball.  Each team is allowed 3 hits to spike it off of the net and change possession.  There are no boundaries, so players are constantly running around, jumping over the net, etc.

The students love it!  Bryton Asay and Taggert Harrison  said they love Spike-ball because it is fun!

Orchestra WOW!

If you’re walking through the cafeteria one morning before school, you might just want to grab a bite of breakfast, settle in, and listen to the Jazz Band. Jeffrey Sass, who plays the alto saxophone says, “Jazz Band is a great before school activity where you play harder music than normal and you have to work harder and devote more time than Concert Band.” Lindsey Deveraux who plays the tenor saxophone says that being in the Jazz Band “has helped me learn more about music.”

Kick Me!

Students in 7th grade Language Arts played a fun variation of the old “Kick Me” trick this month to learn about analogies. 

Instead of having a “kick me” sticker stuck on students’ backs, the stickers are words that are the answer to an analogy. Analogies are word pairs that show relationships between ideas such as hot is to cold as wet is to dry.

On October 24th, 2017, the SFJHS Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Orchestras performed at the Spanish Fork High School’s auditorium. With the concert being so close to Halloween, the orchestras dressed up in costumes. The Sixth Grade Orchestra also came and performed two songs with the Beginning Orchestra ("Sourwood Mountain" and "John Ryan's Polka"). There were all sorts of costumes at the affair. There were a ton of Star Wars costumes but most of the costumes were different.

NJHS has been really busy this term!  They’ve helped at two elementary school carnivals.  They headed up a Saturday clean up on the Spanish Fork River Trail. 

More recently, they did some painting here at the school.  They’ve even entered a scarecrow at the Thanksgiving Point Scarecrow Festival.

It’s been fun.

Students were told to fill out a job application telling all about themselves and answering job-related questions. They pretended they were five years older than they actually were, and even responded to college inquiries.
