SFJH students use their writing, math, and art skills to create one of a kind board games!

Students in Miss Brooks’ 7th grade honors math class were given the task to create a game that requires students to practice all operations of integers.

Students used English/Language Arts skills to write clear and organized directions.  Many included artistic influences for the games themselves.

Everyone had a great time teaching other classmates how to play their games. Mr. Youd’s students even joined the fun by allowing our classes to teach the games to them.

On Friday the 13th, students gathered in front of the school to set off on an awesome biking trip.

The group left the school and headed for the river trail in Spanish Fork. When they made it to the trail, they biked to Canyon View Park where they ate lunch.

When lunch was over they rode the rest of the trail down to the SF sports park and then back to the school.  All that were involved had a great time despite a few flat tires and broken gears!  It was a great opportunity for the kids to enjoy an exciting ride!

On September 28, Ms. Warren’s CCA class started a project to design, develop, and manufacture a cereal box and commercial. They are also giving sales pitches to ‘convince’ their classmates to buy their product. This is a two week project that multiple students are saying is “The best school project we’ve done this year!”

Some names that students have come up with for their ‘cereals’ are: Schoolhouse Crunch, Not Healthy! Scoops, Grandma’s Fruities, Strongman Cereal, and much more! We can’t wait to hear more about the ideas and creativity involved from Ms. Warren’s CCA classes!

Today at Payson Jr. High, we held an assembly to celebrate Red Ribbon Week. Students participated in the 500 Mile Walk touting the anti-bullying posters they'd made with the help of their teachers and fellow classmates. At the assembly, students sang encouraging songs to help us remember the importance of being a friend to everyone. We also heard from some of the baseball players at Brigham Young University who shared some of their experiences and wisdom about being kind and choosing good friends. It was a wonderful experience for everyone involved! Remember, Grizzlies: bullying is trash. Kick it to the curb!
