SFJHS to Have a New Principal
The Nebo School Board of Education recently appointed Mr. Matt Christensen as the principal of Spanish Fork Junior High School beginning next school year. Although we are very sad to say goodbye to Mr. Dwight Liddiard who will move to the district offices next year, we want to extend a warm welcome to Mr. Christensen and look forward to his service.

Our Advanced Orchestra performed very well at the State Junior High Orchestra festival and received Superior (1) ratings. They spent a great deal of time preparing for this event and we are pleased with the performance. We performed the same music at the Nebo Orchestra Assessment last week where we also received a 'superior' rating.
Today, the Advanced Orchestra is headed to the U of Utah to perform in the first ever Junior High Orchestra Festival where we will receive a rating and feedback from judges.
According to Mrs. Harman, “They were one of many groups who auditioned for this opportunity, and we are honored to be selected to participate.”
Good luck, Lobos!
Eighth-grade students from Spanish Fork Junior High traveled to the State Capital last week.
Students went to the Capitol building to learn about the branches of state government and experience firsthand how Utah’s government works.
According to Ms. Shae Harmer, “We had an awesome time and even got to go behind the scenes a little with Representative Mike Mckell!”
