SFJHS Choir Sings at Hockey Game

On Friday February 8, the Spanish Fork Junior High choirs went on a field trip to the Grizzlies Hockey Game in West Valley City. The buses left shortly after four and arrived with plenty of time to do a sound check, find their seats, and explore the Maverik Center. Just before the opening lineup, the choirs were brought out onto the ice. After the opening lineup was announced, the entire Grizzlies team warmed up on the ice, skating around the choirs.

Lobo Ballers Are District Boys’ Champions!

This week was the District Boys basketball tournament.

It started with a tough battle against Diamond Fork on Monday where things did not always go our way. That didn't stop us from working hard and putting ourselves in the best situation for a big win.

Tuesday night was the championship game over at the high school: Spanish Fork Junior High School against Mapleton Junior. There was a huge crowd, but the players had been working hard and preparing themselves for just this moment.

Blackout Poetry in 7th Grade

In Ms. Dannelly’s honors English class, the students are making blackout poetry using old books, newspapers, and magazines. Blackout poetry is where a poet takes a marker and goes over a page of a book or magazine blacking out words to create a new poem. Poets can even draw pictures on the paper relating to the poem and still show what the poem is saying.

STUDENTS AT SPANISH FORK JUNIOR HIGH ARE SAFE

Students are safe at Spanish Fork Junior High. Earlier today, there was a rumor of a weapon on campus. The administration contacted police immediately. The police responded quickly and the individuals involved were investigated and the school was searched and found safe. There was no validity to the rumor. As a precautionary measure, the school issued a lockout while police conducted the investigation. After it was determined that there was no threat, the lockout was lifted at approximately 1:00 p.m.

Board Game Fun in CCA!

In Mr. Johnson’s 7th grade CCA class, we are doing career board games. The games could be anything we wanted, but we had to have at least 10 careers, and it had to be a playable game. Our class had been making these for a week and a half. First, we had to get an idea of what game we wanted to make. Next, we went into the computer lab and did a lot of research and learned so much about really cool careers. After that, we had to make the pieces for the game and then put the board together. Lastly, we colored the board and finalized everything. My board game was called Jobopoly.

OUT OF SCHOOL TO PLAY AT WORK!

On the first of February, 7th grade students had the opportunity to skip school for a day and experience the everyday life of an adult worker. The careers that were shadowed included financial managers, computer software engineers, principals, and sewage workers! Isaak Snedecor said “It was a great hands on learning experience. It was a lot of fun.” While some people may have only stayed for half of a regular work day with their parents, others stayed for the entire work shift. Some jobs had set break and lunch times, while some get breaks whenever they are needed.
