Our Jr. High Jazz band performed at the District Jazz Festival this week and was amazing! 

The jazz band consists of some of the best players from the band and has accomplished a lot this year as a group.  They brought home a superior rating!  This is the highest rating possible for an event like this. 

Mr. Carter is happy with all of the hard work the students put in to prepare for this event and their awesome attitudes they bring to the classroom every day!  Way to go Jazz Band!

Pi Day

Submitted by david.thacker on Thu, 03/23/2017 - 06:19

When most people here the word ‘pi’ they automatically think of a delicious dessert. However, here at Spanish Fork Junior High students are also taught to think of π, an irrational number. Irrational numbers are numbers that have a repeating decimal that never ends and doesn’t have a repeating pattern and there are millions upon millions of irrational numbers. So why do we dedicate an entire day to π? Two reasons. First, Π is special. Π is the ratio of a circle’s circumference (the distance around a circle) to its diameter. Thus π is used repeatedly in mathematics.

They also were able to hike to the top of Buffalo Point and view the panorama of the Great Salt Lake.
