  Utah’s KTS is an incentive program that gives out “Key Cards” to students during the school year which they can later cash into prizes from free food like Costa Vida to visits to the Natural History Museum of Utah and The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. At the end of every school year, there’s an assembly where finalists that meet certain criteria are required to attend.  This assembly happened on Friday, April 10th.

  Fifty finalists were called down by color groups and students were singled out for a mini “interview” where the presenter, asked the student who they wanted to join them down there to give them more luck. Warren Wilson called down the entire orchestra, others called down Choir students and the Soccer team to give them a spice of luck.  

  After every color group, there were small competitions like burrito eating contests, a tricycle race between Ms. Oda and Coach Clark—where Oda was victorious—and a money blowing machine where a student caught money straight from the air.

  Close to the end, the five finalists; Delhesmy Solis, Sage Jackson, Lylah Beaudry, Bryson Elliott and Grace Carillo were trying out five keys and inside an inflatable car, there was a box that only one key would unlock. The person who got the compatible key won an iPod and will move on towards a car giveaway.  The giveaway will be transmitted live on KUTV news and five brand-new cars will be handed out to the 10-13 finalists from different schools. A obvious look of pleasant surprise hit Sage Jackson when she realized that her key had been the one that opened the lock.

History and English combine to discuss global issues

Salem Junior High School News - Thu, 04/26/2018 - 11:08am

Some might assume that with SAGE testing happening at school, students have already slipped into summer mode. That is definitely not the case here at Salem Junior High. Our 9th-grade history and English classes are working on a cross-curricular project that has them working hard and learning a lot.

Our students have been working on a research project that requires them to learn about a global issue of their choice and come up with a solution to fix the problem or at least mitigate the negative effects it is having on the part of the world that they have chosen to focus on. The final product will be a written speech that they will then deliver. This project has combined research practices used in English and history as well as writing, critical thinking, and creativity. It has been a complex project and the teachers are proud what their students are producing.

It has been a long project, but students are beginning to see the end. In the picture they are sharing the first draft of their speech, looking for peer feedback on ways to make their speech clear and compelling.

Technology Teacher Spotlight

Marjie Ralph is an English teacher at Payson High School who has been teaching for 13 years. She currently teaches three different UVU concurrent enrollment courses. All sorts of technology are used in her classroom: Canvas, Google, Voice Thread, Screen Cast-o-Matic, Chromebooks, Google Extensions, Adobe Spark, and many other cloud-based tools. The technology tool that she claims is the most helpful is her Nebo Digital Coach. Marjie says, "I have found with technology I can spend a lot of time 'figuring it out,' or I can make one simple call to my digital coach, and she always knows what to do. I love having a digital coach that I can email, text, or have come to my classroom." Thanks to her digital coach, Marji has been inspired to work towards both an Ed Tech and CTE endorsement.

Issack Bahena just returned from the DECA Nationals Competition in Atlanta, Georgia.  With competitors for every state, and from Mexico, Spain, Canada, China, and Japan, Issack performed very well and represented Maple Mountain High with pride.  Issack was required to take one test and two role play competitions to advance to the final round.  With around 200 students in his field, it was a difficult task to be in the top 20 for the final round.   Issack was close to reaching the finals.  If you see Issack, please tell him congratulations for making it to nationals!
