Beloved author, Lance Conrad, came to SFJHS to tell our English students stories about broken noses, books, getting maced, curiosity, elements of stories, and how he became an author. He talked about experiences of endless books and making good stories. He told us about the most important element of a story. He made us laugh, worry, cringe, and learn about writing stories. Lance talked about his books, the plot, the characters, the villains, and much more. He talked about his books in his series, and how they are tied together, but you will have to find out by reading the books.

YOGA!!!!  Yoga is a fun way to help your body relax and calm down.  It is also a great workout!  Many students in our junior high school get a small taste of what yoga is like in Coach Johnson's Body Conditioning class.  Once they’ve been introduced to this form of working out, many enjoy it! 

Yoga will also help with one’s flexibility and many other aspects of their athletic careers.

The 8th grade US History classes had the opportunity to visit the Utah state capitol building on Friday and got to see government working full throttle.

Students watched a session of Congress in which the families of Utah’s fallen soldiers were honored and  took a peek at the building’s new earthquake absorption mechanisms.  They spoke with Representative Mike McKell and got a special tour of the Supreme Court from him and our own Mayor Leifson.  They even got to have a question and answer period with Senator Diedre Henderson!
