Parents and Students,

It has been a long-standing tradition for Spanish Fork Junior High School students to wear appropriate costumes to school for Halloween. This year, it is our intention to maintain the positive and fun spirit of this event. While students are not required to wear costumes on Halloween, those students who do wish to participate are reminded of the following guidelines:

On October 24th, the Spanish Fork Junior High Choir had their very first choir concert of the year. The conductor’s name is Ashley Eyre and she is new to the school this year. There are four choirs altogether: Chamber Singers, Concert Choir, Bel Canto, and Beginning Choir. Each of these groups sang three songs in the concert.  All of the choirs included seventh, eighth, and ninth graders from the school. The concert began with a performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” sung by the Chamber Singers.

It was another fun day in the library for October’s Reader’s Café! This month Miss Nielson shared some of her favorite Jennifer Nielsen books. We also shared some great books to read during Halloween. Reader’s Café is a fun way to learn about new books, while enjoying a tasty Cowboy Doughnut! Make sure to sign up for November’s Reader’s Café to learn about new and exciting books to read!

US History Honors Projects Really Shine

Submitted by david.thacker on Wed, 10/23/2019 - 12:14

Our 8th Grade US History Honors Track completed their 1st term projects and they're AMAZING!

Each US History Honors student is required to complete one project each term. Each project will cover a specific element of the history that we cover that term in our US History classes.

 At Honors pack times, students complete research, plan out and create their projects. Students have the freedom to research whatever they would like and take creative liberties on how to present it. Research must be in depth and all students write a research paper that accompanies their project.

October is coming to a close, so be sure to bring in a pair of socks for the chance to win a prize!

During the entire month, we have the opportunity to turn in new socks to help people in need. Turn them in to the sock boxes located in the library and in the office.

Many people in our school, community, and all throughout the world cannot afford a simple pair of socks. You can help by buying a pair of unused socks of any size or pattern on your next trip to the store. It is a small, simple, and cheap effort, but it can make a big difference!
