For two days, a couple of weeks before school begins, over one hundred students from all of the junior high's in Nebo School district gather together for the Nebo Shakespeare Academy.  The two day summer event features Shakespearean expert guest speakers; movement, voice and text classes; ice breaker games; open question and answer time on the Shakespearean Festival Acting Competition; Collaboration and district team spirit motivation lectures; food and FUN!  This year's Academy was held at Mapelton Jr. High School with guest speakers Jan Shelton Hunsaker and Andy Hunsaker.

7th Grade Day and Open House

Our annual 7th grade day is happening on August 18th this year from 9 to 11 AM. This is a great chance for our new incoming 7th grade students (and their parents) to meet their teachers, and other faculty and staff members without the pressure of the first day of school.

Our open house is also on the 18th from 1 to 5 PM. This is a great time for all parents and students to come do a meet and greet with the faculty and staff of SFJHS.

Belated Recognition is Well Deserved

SFJH’s science fair has long since come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that those who were selected to move on haven’t been busy.  This reporter recently discovered that Emily Colton, Cameron Smith & Natalie Reese, Brendan Bakker, and Ryan Berger were honored at June’s Nebo School District meeting for their outstanding performance at the Central Utah Science and Engineering Fair (CUSEF) competition.

Twitter reminders via text message on Lagoon Day

On Lagoon day (May 28) @sfjrhigh will be tweeting out reminders to the students when it is time to board the busses to head home. If our students are able to receive text messages they can receive these twitter reminders via text (without a twitter account) by following these simple directions:

Text "follow sfjrhigh" to 40404 to receive text message reminders about when it is time to get on the bus. Text "off @sfjrhigh" to 40404 on the way home to stop receiving tweets.
