In Mr. Gibson's 1st period art class, we have been learning how to use and create digital art. We have been working on our final art project since Wednesday November 15th. They are finished and are hung up in the library hall near Mr. Gibson’s classroom.

We used a free digital art program called Pixlr Editor. You can do almost anything on it from creating your own art from scratch, to editing and customizing any image or photo! We have learned so much this past month, and are excited to see how everyone’s projects turned out!

Focus Brings Win for Lady Lobos—38-24 over Lakeridge

According to the SFJH girls basketball coach Shea Harmer, our Lady Lobos gave it their all and came away with a well-deserved win against Lakeridge yesterday.

“We started off a little nervous and had a hard time settling into our style of play. The first quarter was rough,” reports Coach Harmer.  “We finally calmed down and played our game rest of the time and that made a huge difference.”

 According to Harmer, defense was key and really helped shut Lakeridge down. Trinity Benson was a beast on the boards and worked hard to make sure their posts weren’t able to score much. When the Lady Lobos ran their plays, they got in a zone and Lakeridge couldn’t touch them.

Coach Harmer had nothing but praise for her team.  “Macie Clark sank a half-court shot in the 3rd quarter that totally brought the energy to the game,” she said. “Bailie Jensen’s intense yelling and Avery Critchfield’s hard work in the post area really made the difference in the game.”  The girls won it 38-24.

Go Lobos! The girls’ basketball team plays Diamond Fork tomorrow at 3:30 at Diamond Fork. Come on out and give them your support!

The Spanish Fork Junior High 9th grade boys’ basketball team beat Lakeridge Jr. High Tuesday night by a score of 69-39. 

The boys got off to a slow start in the first half.  They struggled with turnovers and poor shot selection. 

The second half was a complete turnaround.  Our Lobos worked hard at getting great shots in their half-court offense and reducing the number of turnovers.  Their strategy paid off well for them as is evident by the final score. 

Good luck boys against Diamond Fork tomorrow.

Second, we will be buying fleece and tying the ends to make blankets for Utah Valley Hospital Primary Children's Network in Provo. Lastly, with the remaining money we will be donating supplies to a women and children shelter that helps local women and children going through a crisis. Students can bring money to donate to their second period class if they are able. Thank you for supporting those in need!

Customers, employees and community members donate teddy bears and other stuffed animals that are given to the Utah Valley Family Support & Treatment Center in Orem, Salt Lake Valley Family Support Center (locations in Midvale, Taylorsville, West Valley City and Sugarhouse), Family Connection Center (in Layton/Clearfield and Bountiful) and other crisis and service centers.
