Mrs. Thompson's eighth grade English students participated in a quick write activity on 9/11 after viewing a commemorative video. These pieces represent just a few of the gems they shared from their writer's notebooks.

His family has asked the community to help him celebrate his Birthday by sending him a Birthday card in the mail.

High School Hope Squad Enlightens SFJH Students

Last Friday, the eighth grade health classes got a guest visit from the Spanish Fork High School Hope Squad as an assist in teaching the classes about suicide prevention.

The Hope Squad is a suicide prevention group who makes sure everyone has someone to talk to if they need it. They provide friendship to students who may not have someone to hang out with at school, and they play a role in keeping the school happy and safe.
