Belated Recognition is Well Deserved

By Rillene R. E. Nielsen

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.
