Our very own ELL class at Spanish Fork Junior High went on a preposition walk after learning about this important part of speech.

Their sunny walk and write concluded with them coming back to the classroom and writing preposition poetry together.

Allyson helps Mrs. Thompson teach the class about prepositions by jumping over, walking around, and sitting in the garbage can!

Students learn the importance of detailed directions

Students in Mr. Thacker’s Exploring Computer Science class learned the importance of detailed directions by writing the directions to make a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

After the directions were written the students took turns following the directions exactly as written--even if it meant spreading the peanut butter and jelly on the outside of the bag of bread.

Some worked well, other did not. The students now have a better understanding of detailed directions in everyday life, as well as when dealing with computer science.

If you were to ask most people what happens in an Ag Science class they might tell you that kids learn how to care for and show farm animals.  But at Spanish Fork Junior High, Ag Science is so much more than that.  Science is what drives instruction.

This week in eighth-grade animal science, students dissected doves.  They got to see grain kernels and rocks inside of the gizzard.  This is part of their digestive systems.  They also got to see other organs like the heart, liver, lungs and trachea.

Mule Visits School to Help Ag Students Develop Presentation Skills

Part of being a twenty-first century learner is developing real world skills that will help students in future careers.  Developing and delivering presentations are skills many jobs require.

Students in Agricultural Science recently had an opportunity to practice these skills.  After attending an FFA Judging Contest as part of a Career Development Event, students developed class presentations. 

Shayla Seitz decided to present about horse evaluations, but took it one step further and brought her mule to school to talk about some differences in mules and horses. 

At SFJH, teachers understand how important choice and autonomy are for student learning.  When students have the opportunity to stretch, they often move beyond expectations.

Dot Day!

Riverview Elementary News - Thu, 09/15/2016 - 3:43pm
(more pictures available)

Dot Day is all about encouraging each other to discover how we can make a difference.  Students are encouraged to "just make a mark and see where it takes you."  One simple act, one simple change of thinking, can snowball into something big.

What we want Riverview students to learn is:

  • Each of us can make our mark…we can make a difference.
  • It is important to support each other and believe in each other.
  • A small bit of encouragement is enough to help us discover a hidden ability that we might not know about. 

Each of us can make our mark.  Each of us can make a difference.

Tennis season is here!  We have a record on number of girls on the team this year!  Our thirty seven Lady Lobo tennis players have all come ready to play this year and have excelled even this early in the season. 

So far we have played one preseason match and one regular season match and both have been great successes!  We look forward to our intramural team playing matches over the next few weeks and our Varsity and J.V. team preparing for districts! 

Thanks to all the parents that have supported their daughters as they seek to become exceptional student athletes!

Statue of Responsibility

(more pictures available)

Rees students were entertained with a visit from a couple of the members from the Harlem Globetrotters!  Peewee and Hollywood taught us about how to be responsible and why it’s important for us to have that characteristic.  Students were asked to give an example of how to be responsible.  Here are a few of their responses:

“Taking care of your Android or iPhone.”

“Doing your homework.”

And a favorite among teachers was: “Not yelling at your teacher.”

Students also heard about the Statue of Responsibility project.  As we have many individuals interested and involved in the project in our area, we are providing you the opportunity to donate yourself, if you choose.  If so, please select the Donate Now option on the statuefund.org website.  Our wish is not to use this as a school fundraiser at this time.
