Our 4th grade students had a great time at Camp Floyd in Fairfield.

They learned about the Pony Express, how to make candles and bricks. They were taught what it was like to have a military drill.

There was a Pioneer school house there and the students enjoyed seeing what it was like to attend school back in the day.

It was a beautiful day and the students had a great time! We have awesome students and staff at East Meadows!

On September 20th, students from Spanish Fork Junior High representing the various fall sports and the Student Council were invited to attend an awesome leadership conference and receive instruction from some very influential people.

Captain’s Academy is a fantastic leadership experience for young people.  The fall sport athlete captains representing SFJH were Spencer Larsen- Cross Country, Staci Lomenick- Cross Country, Noah Taylor- Golf, and McKenna Crook- Tennis.  Max MaKenzie attended representing Student Council. 

The meeting started off with a speaker from IHC about the importance of sleep for athletes and human beings.  Brodie Berg, a former Pro Golfer turned Fireman, then presented on what it means to be a leader, sharing some great experiences. 

After a short break the final speaker was Wes Ruff, the sports anchor for Channel 4 News.  Ruff presented on sportsmanship and being a captain.  Ruff also had many great experiences and stories to tell. 

It was very beneficial for these young students to attend and to be able to learn more about what it means to be a Captain!

Counselors attend SUU "Counselor Days"

This past weekend our counselors attended a conference down at Southern Utah University. They were able to learn about  the great amenities that SUU offers their students. One thing that was especially impressive, were the extreme measures SUU is taking to accommodate incoming Freshman. SUU holds new student orientations, and even assigns each student an "ACE" which is an "Assistant Coach for Excellence and Success." An ACE is essentially a peer mentor to help students in the big transition from High School to College. If you are interested in going to SUU, come see the counselors and ask about attending a "Red Riot," which is an overnight student life experience. The Counselors were also able to tour SUU's renowned Aviation Program. If you are considering a career as a fixed wing or helicopter pilot, SUU has a great program that the counselors would love to tell you more about!  An SUU representative will be attending our "College Day" on September 26th, and SUU will also be waiving their $50 Application Fee during our "College Week" which is November 6th-November 10th. GO THUNDERBIRDS!

What We're Learning: Biology

Landmark High School News - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 5:28pm

This week in Matt Cope's Biology class, students participated in a Concept Attainment activity. Concept Attainment is an inquiry learning strategy where students investigate the attributes of a group or category by comparing and contrasting samples.  

Cope's lesson activity asked students to identify the traits and properties of macromolecules. This strategy helps students make connections between what they already know and what they will be learning AND how to sort relevant information.

Fifth grade students in Miss Sabrina Huyett's class recently got to do a science experiment with Miss Huyett's dad, Mr. Steve Huyett. He is a chemist and he taught the students the scientific method of using the "methylene blue" experiment. 

 The blue bottle experiment as it is called, is a chemical reaction. An aqueous solution containing glucose, sodium hydroxide, methylene blue and some air is shaken in a closed bottle; it turns from colorless to blue and then decolorizes again after a while. With further shaking, the cycle can be repeated many times. The students really enjoyed learning about science!
