Could You Get A Good Night Sleep Without Your Phone?

Submitted by david.thacker on Tue, 04/30/2019 - 07:42

Do you own a phone? Is it charging in your room even while you are sleeping?

Just think:  you are lying down trying to fall asleep but you hear it, the silent buzz trying to get you to look. So you check to see what it was saying, and while that's happening, you get distracted by something else on your phone, one after the other. Now it's close to one a.m. and you haven't slept a wink. Great.

We had a great Poetry Slam last Thursday evening! Twenty students from all grades performed original poems.

Topics ranged from self-confidence to basketball. Every poem was unique and performed with emotion and expression. They did a great job!

Thank you to all who came to support these students and made the Poetry Slam a success! And, congratulations to our Poetry Slam winners Tremaine Lomax, Natalie Olson, and Hailey Wilson! They will represent our school at the District Poetry Slam. Come support them on Tuesday, May 7th at 6:00 here in the Little Theater.

Do You Text and Drive?

Submitted by david.thacker on Mon, 04/29/2019 - 14:31

While you are driving you get a text message. You think “what if it’s important?” So you pick up your phone and read the text while driving. As you are texting them back “BOOM!” you run into another car. And your family never gets to see you again.

 Picking up your phone while driving, just cost your life. Because of just one little screen check, you are now dead or seriously injured.

Make up is a powerful tool used by actors.  That’s why Ms. Holley’s drama students have the chance to experiment with what make-up can do to change appearance and create characters.  On stage, the results can be magical!

Here are a few examples of what our creative SFJH students can do with makeup.

Stalkers are Everywhere,Even in Your Phone!

Did you know that you can be stalked through the device you're holding?

Since 2007 when Apple Inc. introduced the first smartphone, phones have been a big problem. With technology getting better, the more danger phones have.

Stalking has always been around and has gotten worse as the years have gone by. But when phones came alive, it grew.

Stalkers can hack into your phone and look through the camera on the front screen. Or they might even just stalk you on Instagram or other social media apps.
