Let’s Obey Computer Lab Rules

By Jacob Hardman

If you go to a computer lab during Pack Time, you might catch students playing Minecraft, and/or watching You-Tube Videos.

Using the computer labs is a privilege and I don't want to lose it.  We all need to think carefully about the things we watch and do in these labs.

School Musical Coming!

Paige Peterson

Opening night for our school musical, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, will be March 20, 2013 at 7:30 PM. It is based on Mark Twain’s novel, the story of a man from Connecticut who somehow travels back in time to the court of the legendary King Arthur.

The Lobo Howl interviewed Ms. Holly, our drama teacher and asked, for a play this big, who pulls the strings to make it possible?

“I do. Without me this play wouldn't be possible, I bring in everything,” laughed Ms. Holly.

Mr. Tuckett and the Spanish Fork Jr. High Choirs

Paige Peterson

A new teacher, Mr. Tuckett, is teaching a whole new choir in a whole new school. The Lobo Howl interviewed Mr. Tuckett to find out a bit more about him.  We are sharing this information with you.

Lobo Howl:  How are you adapting to teaching choir at a new school?

Tuckett:  It's just like anything else, after a while you get used to it.

Howl:  Is it hard having new students, at a new school?

Tuckett:  It's not so bad, like I said previously, you get used to it.

Howl:  Do you believe you can fill in the shoe's left behind by the previous choir teacher?

Lobos Pin Their Prey

By Lizzy Cerenzie, reporter

SFJHS wrestlers finished out the season on top! As a result of the wrestlers' excellent performances during the season, many of them placed in the top brackets at state. Some of those athletes chose to work through crippling injuries that would have stopped lesser athletes from competing.

The Lobo Howl interviewed Ethan Morley, and Braxton Merriweather, both members of the junior high wrestling team.

Ethan, a middle weight wrestler, pulled a muscle in his neck and injured his knee.  Still, he competed in the tournaments.

Spanish Fork Junior High Women Score for Lady Dons

Nate Chandler

Some talented girl's from our school made it onto the high school girls’ basketball team! As of January 30, their record was 8-2 with only two more games left in the regular season.

This reporter interviewed Camrie Young.

Camrie Young also plays post. Basketball is her first love. The thing she likes best about the sport is “it’s fast-paced, fun and aggressive!”  Camrie feels if she gets more aggressive, her team will be able to do better.

Nice job to those who are playing girls' basketball for us! We hope that you will finish out your season strong and good luck!
