Mrs. Carlson and her team of wood shop students have filled the Payson High main gym with wood wonders once again this year.  Pieces range from bed stands, dressers and drawers, to nightstands, pool tables, and hope chests.  

Many of these projects have been in the works since the beginning of the year and highlight the different skills available within the woodworking trade.  Many pieces this year have logos or images etched, burned, or laser printed into the wood.

Come stop by the gym tonight until 8:00 pm to see this amazing showcase.

The orchestra students of Spanish Fork Junior High killed it on Thursday, May 10th at the 2018 UVU Orchestra Festival Competition! All seventh, eighth, and ninth graders did an excellent job thanks to their amazing conductor, Angela Harman. Cason Barton from the seventh-grade orchestra says, “I think it was a very good experience performing in front of the judge and that it could help us further along in life.” Indeed it will! Did you know that people who play a musical instrument have better brain development? A ninth grader from the ninth grade orchestra, Hailey Creer, says, “I benefited from this experience because I was able to learn to work in harmony with others. The songs we had the opportunity to play at the UVU festival challenged me and my classmates and we were able to improve and thrive together.”

When you think about teachers that greatly contribute to the family atmosphere of Mapleton Junior High,
Leslie Lines is one of the first teachers that comes to your mind. Leslie is always willing to go the extra
mile for her school. She teaches huge classes of energetic kids, coaches multiple sports, and volunteers
as much as possible for extra responsibilities. Leslie does all of this with a smile on her face. Not only
does she do a fantastic job at the school, she is a loving and responsible mother. I admire the amount of
time and attention that she gives her son Aiden and how good she is with him. Leslie is very fun as well.
She is very good at entertaining and teaching at the same time. She is a great example of a Mustang!

The Utah Core Curriculum for 9th grade World Geography states, “Culture is the total sum of human expression.” In order to best help the students experience ways that cultures maintain their identities and traditions through their music, Ms. Reese and Mr. McKell wanted to give their students the opportunity to learn how to play African drums.  

Jeff Ballard, a recently retired Nebo School District teacher spent two days at Springville Junior teaching Ms. Reese’s and Mr. McKell’s students African style drumming. Mr. Ballard has been playing the African drums for over 20 years and has accumulated many drums and other musical instruments from around the world.  He brought a drum for each of the students to use as he taught them the different rhythms and techniques of African drumming.  He also brought his daughter Hannah to help instruct and layer the various rhythms together that they were teaching the students. Thank you, Mr. Ballard and Hannah, for volunteering your time and spending 2 days at our school to teach our 9th graders!! We had a lot of fun!
