story and picture by Garrett Johnson

Quadball was a smash hit this week in advanced PE.  Having to score 4 different kinds of goals in two minutes was challenging yet fun-- as this group of students found out.  A basketball shot, soccer goal, bowling strike, a touchdown pass, and the game is over. 

All involved had so much fun!

Collin Kartchner Comes to SFJHS

by Benjamin Dimmick

Collin Kartchner came to our school this week to tell us about the dangers of social media and how to use it wisely. The assembly started with Principal Christensen introducing the one and only Collin Kartchner. When he came up you could tell already that this was going to be a fun assembly. First he introduced himself and his family, cracking jokes along the way that almost everybody laughed at. Then he got down to business. He told the story of how his wife, Lizzie Kartchner was once a frequent Instagrammer.
