FACS Exploration News

By Kris Kelly

Mrs. Kelly’s 8th Grade FACS Exploration classes have recently been learning about Child Development.  After studying about the developmental stages, positive guidance techniques, and the value of play, students held their own preschool.  They planned and prepared different learning activities and were able to teach these to younger siblings during two days of animal fun, art projects, playdough, pretend, and fun!  They knew the preschool was a success when one of the children exclaimed to his mother at the end of the day, “I never want to leave here!”

The SFJHS Student Council worked hard to put on their final dance of the year. The "Decades Dance" was a hit! Students came dressed as their favorite decade with clothes ranging from 50's poodle skirts to 90's grunge. There were some great outfits and the best from each decade won a prize! The Student Council would like to thank everyone who came and give a shout-out to the awesome chaperones, administration, janitors, and DJ who helped bring everything together!

Spanish Fork Junior High’s annual Poetry Slam was held Thursday, April 20th in the Little Theater.  Slammers from across three grade levels performed to a packed house who snapped enthusiastically.  It was awesome!

Thirty-nine students participated.  To qualify, students needed to find and memorized poems of at least 12 lines.  While many students researched poets to find their poems, a significant number of students wrote poems especially for the slam.
