Did you know that Spanish Fork Junior High participates in constant fundraising through recycling?  

You can help your school get some easy money, and keep it clean at the same time.  All there is to do is put unwanted papers in the blue recycling bins. It’s just that easy.

Each paper recycled gets the school a little money, but over time it adds up. This ultimately helps you in your school work by upgrading the computers, the programs on the computers, and other school resources. 

For other tips on recycling, check with our resident recycler   Mr. Cornaby!

The old track has been refurbished.  It has six newly painted lanes, a rubberized surface, and now includes high jump and long jump areas.

The best things about it is that anyone can use it, and it will be wonderful for track meets.   Mr. Bake told The Lobo Howl that he and Mr. David Huff attended a meeting with other principals to decide which schools would receive updating.  “It was a combined decision that our school got a new track.”

Here are some cool facts about Mrs. Brockbank. Her first job was working in a handicap care center.  She has always wanted to go to Alaska. One thing that absolutely drives her crazy is when students sharpen their pencils while she is talking.

In 1912, A.B. Graham wanted a safe place for kids to go after school. So she started a program at her home that would provide a safe, fun place for children to play and learn. Instead of calling the program 4-H, at the time it was called, "The Tomato Club" or the "Corn Growing Club". Now 100 years later we call it 4-H. The 4-H program at our school is run by Julie Green and Susan Fay.
