Frog Dissections

For the past two days, Mrs. Mendosa’s seventh grade science class has been dissecting frogs.

 The first day each class looked at the mouth, and students had lots of comments:

 I asked Cael Cabreros from 2nd period, what he liked about the dissections.  “It was fun, and also it was educational,” he said.

 When I asked Dallin Rust, from 6th period, what he did not like about the activity, he commented, “Taking out the tongue because it was rough and slimy.'' 

 What surprised you about it? Madalyn Welling from 6th period said, “The smell of it.”

March Madness PTA Fundraiser

Last week the PTA had a fundraiser for the school.

The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) was in charge of this and students were to get a parent signature on a donation envelope. There were options to pay ten, twenty, forty, or even sixty dollars, but students did not need money to turn in the envelope.

These donations are in place of doing what students did in elementary such as the jog-a-thon or a dance. The class that has the most envelopes turned in WITH or WITHOUT money got 5 minutes of extra lunchtime.

Band Concert

On Thursday, March 5th, the Spanish Fork Junior High School Band performed at the high school.  The first group to perform was the Beginning Band, and they performed three songs. One of those three songs was “Walking the Planks'' by Robert W. Smith.  Their performance was amazing! 

The next group to perform was the Jazz Band. They also performed three songs. My favorite of the three songs was “Barbados” by Paul Lee. During the song, they had two soloists: Caden Paxman and Victorya Bowen.

Students Love Goga

Animal Science and Agriculture Science students went to Goga on Friday February 28th.  Goga is the shortened name of “Goat yoga,” a type of yoga that is said to combine the benefits of animal therapy and yoga by practicing yoga with goats. 

Students were able to participate in a yoga class and then hang out with goats. Goats are used because of their funny behaviors and love of humans. Many people have taken an interest in goat yoga as both mental and physical therapy.

SFJH Teacher is a Skijoring Enthusiast

Do you know what Skijoring is?  Maybe you’re like most of us here at SFJH—clueless!  But we’re in luck because one of our teachers is a Skijoring enthusiast—Ms. Megan Lynn.

Skijoring is a Norwegian word meaning “ski driving.”  Believe it or not, it’s a competitive sport!  All you need to participate is a pair of skis, a towrope of some sort, and a vehicle; be it horse, dog, or motorized.  For hundreds of years, the Sami people of northern Scandinavia used reindeer.

Check out this great article from the Daily Herald.  It tells all about our very own Ms. Lynn.

The conductor’s name is Ashley Eyre and this is her first year teaching at Spanish Fork Junior High. 

The four choirs performed in this choir concert:  Beginning Choir, Concert Choir, Bel Canto, and Chamber Singers. Each of these choirs sang two to three songs; at least one song by each choir was about some type of love for the month of February--Valentine’s Day.
