Mrs. Nielsen and this year’s journalism class are glad to announce that we will continue to publish the Lobo Howl.  For all the seventh graders out there, the Lobo Howl is our incredibly awesome, school wide newspaper. We have reporters that will cover basically anything and everything that involves Spanish Fork Junior High that is newsworthy.  We will try to have new editions out every other week.

SFHS Dons Get Off to a Great Start

Submitted by david.thacker on Fri, 09/28/2012 - 14:05

Many of you may know that Spanish Fork’s High School varsity football team started their season a couple of days before school started on the August 21st.   Now the Dons are five games into their season and are doing great. They hold a record of four wins and a lone loss.         

The Dons started their season at home by playing the Park City Miners. This game was very lopsided and ended in a 53-0 blowout in favor of the Dons.  In this meeting, the Dons looked very good with their defense being the most impressive.

Our Cross Country racers are off to a good start.   At a recent meet held Friday September 7, 2012, this Howl reporter got to see our incredible runners in action.

The team was amazing.  There was lots of fun, and excitement.  A level of confidence was in all the runners.  They were all well trained and knew what they had to do to win.  Most of them were really humble, but they all did amazing.

Our girls team got 4th place and our boys got 3rd.   Runner Heston Anderson took 2nd overall.

Twenty-seven Spanish Fork Junior High students have been selected by their teachers as September’s Students of the Month.  This award was started a few years ago to honor individuals who do their best in class.

Mrs. Coxson gathers the names of the winners.   Awards are given by each department.  Teachers in each subject pick a student from each grade level based on things like good citizenship, showing improvement, maintaining excellent grades, or being helpful to other class members.

This month the Lobo Howl decided to spotlight our advisor (slave driver) Mrs. Nielsen.  We tracked her down and made her suffer through an interview.  Here’s what we found out.

“I’m a California girl, born and raised in So Cal,” said Mrs. Nielsen. “I was very surprised when I heard the news that I was the teacher feature.”

The Principal’s Principles

Submitted by david.thacker on Fri, 09/28/2012 - 13:23

Mr. Fleming has some advice for all of the students here at Spanish Fork Jr. High. He'd like to see us get involved in the school activities. He said, “Make it your own school.  Get involved.  Make new friends.  Be a good friend and support ‘Back the Pack’.”

He reminds us there are lots of new features at the school this year. They spend half a million dollars here on renovations for the school including new locker rooms, new carpet, lighting and walls. We also have seven new teachers joining our great staff at SFJH.
