Have you ever heard a 7th   grader play a French Horn with a 12th Grade Trumpeter? The result was the first ever Spanish Fork Band Bash! SFJH Band Students combined with Spanish Fork High School to create a spectacular performance.

Can you guess who this teacher is?  This is her first year teaching full time at SFJH but her fifth year teaching. She teaches CTE Introduction, Agricultural Science, Animal Science, and FFA students. If you guessed Mrs. Dobson you are wrong! If you guessed Mrs. Myers you are correct!

Mr. Bingham has been teaching for a total of 30 years, counting this year. He taught two years here then taught 23 more at the high school. After that, he then came back to this school and taught five more years.

For those of you that don't know, Mr. Bingham really likes snowmen because of their shape. His favorite number is eight, and the number eight looks like a snowman!

On Tuesday, October 9th, Mr. LeMmon and Mrs. Lundgren's 7th grade Utah Studies classes visited, This is the Place Monument. The students seemed to enjoy the trip, and the stories that the workers told. 

The monument is there to honor the LDS pioneers who entered the Salt Lake Valley in 1847 lead by Brigham Young. As Brigham Young looked out over the valley of The Great Salt Lake, he spoke the words, “This is the place .” The pioneers called this land Zion, meaning “The Pure in Heart,” or “The Chosen Place.”

The Principal’s Principles

Mr. Fleming is the leader of our “pack.”  This reporter was able to interview him about our school and ways education can help students.

Mr. Fleming wanted all of the students to, “Be grateful for your teachers and trust them.” He said that students should thank them frequently for all that they do for them, that students should try to get the most out of their classes.  They will be grateful for it in the end. When he was a teacher it felt really good for a student to come up to him and thank him for the job he was doing.
