Spanish Fork Jr High Wrestlers had a great end to their season. Sixteen wrestlers participated in the District Tournament with five wrestlers placing.

Tyson Terry placed 3rd, with Cooper Jacobs, Tate Sorensen, Weston Ottesen, and Izaac Wetzel all finishing 2nd.

The team was full of many first year wrestlers and beginners this year, which makes the future of Spanish Fork Wrestling look bright. Thank you for all of your support for the Wrestling Program.

Mrs. Thacker’s FACS Exploration A classes were busy making Book Buddies this week. 
 
Every Book Buddy is unique because each student creates their own pattern and design concept. It’s fun to see just how much personality can be created by fabric scraps, a few buttons, and some thread.

Spanish Fork Junior High is hosting a food drive and it will begin Tuesday, January 16th and run through Friday, January 19th. Non-perishable food items and canned goods are appreciated. Students will be competing with their grade level to see who can donate the most items. The winning grade will get 5 extra minutes for lunch. We will also be handing out raffle tickets when you donate and we will draw for candy! We want to say thanks in advance to all those who will be helping and donating.

On January 8th, 9th, and 10th, Drama 1 students put on a show for great laughs!

 These Drama 1 students have been working very hard for a few months now and the result is worth it. Without the right props or set pieces or even the materials for the puppets, these students still managed to have fun and to ensure members of the audience had just as much fun.

On January 8th, 2018, the Lobos took on Diamond Fork Jr. High, in men's basketball. The undefeated Lobos did a great job playing defense, and took some seriousness while playing offense. Several three pointers were made, and they had 7 points from free throws.
