Mrs. Kelly’s CCA Students Hold Job Interviews

On Tuesday, October 17, Mrs. Kelly’s College and Career Awareness classes experienced job interviews for the first time. Students were told to fill out a job application telling all about themselves and answering job-related questions. They pretended they were five years older than they actually were, and even responded to college inquiries.

 After filling out an application, each student was given a partner. Before interviewing each other, the students were lectured on the importance of first impressions and interviewing etiquette. The partnership would trade off between acting as the employer and acting as the applicant. While starting to interview each other, the students asked their partners questions such as “Why do you want this job?” and “How will having this job benefit you?”

 Students learned so much as they participated in this assignment. They were also reminded that having a short-time job can give you great experience for your long-term career goal.

Parents,

Our PTA is so excited for this Friday morning 8:30-9:00 am before school!  Reflections entries are due!

If at all possible, we encourage a parent a guardian to join your student when they turn their entries in so we can make sure then and there that we have the right forms and signatures filled out correctly.  This saves us time and it saves you from making an extra trip to the school.

Students will receive a small treat that morning for EACH entry they enter (they can enter up to one per category) AND the PTA sponsors this program so we can give out medals, ribbons, and/or certificates to each participant depending on the level of award they receive.  Our Reflections Honors Night will be November 14th at 7 pm and all students who enter are invited to come and celebrate their efforts with their families!

All students who receive PTA Reflections’ highest award will also be eligible to move on to the district level and beyond and receive more recognition depending on how far they go!

We love the Reflections program and we love to see our Sierra Bonita students’ imaginations come alive through art!

You can find information, forms, and rules at Utahpta.org/reflections.

Please call or text Amy van Dyk with any questions!  801-691-6931

We hope to see you and your student FRIDAY morning BEFORE school (8:30-9:00 am on the school stage)!

Ms. Terry’s 9th grade Geography classes were “Playing with Economic Systems” today.  They had recently learned about three different types of economic systems and had this opportunity to test their knowledge with some rousing games of Rock-Paper-Scissors.  

They got to experience Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism using currency that was equal to one M&M.  The students had a lot of fun while getting to understand firsthand what each economic system was all about.  Mr. Mortensen even joined in on the fun.

What Do We Do Over Fall Break?

Monday's question to many of you as you return to school may be, "What did you do over the fall break?". I followed the SFJHS custodians and found they do a lot to keep our school clean and running smoothly for our 1,200+ students, faculty, and staff.

Over the break the custodians have powerwashed the perimeter of the building, cleaning spills and trash where many students enjoy their lunch each day. They have stripped and re-waxed damaged floors; cleaned ink from many surfaces; changed air filters for all buildings; taken apart, cleaned, repaired, and re-assembled the bleachers in the gym; replaced protective wall mats in both gyms; and mopped, steam cleaned, and vacuumed floors. 

 A BIG THANK YOU to all of our custodians and sweepers who worked over the break -- Mr. Hansen, Mr. McKee, Wally, Ross, Dustin, Willie, Keaton, Sam, and Aaron-- we have a great school with fantastic people to keep it looking good and working well!

Nebo Education Foundation Grant Awarded to Mr. Crockett

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Fri, 10/20/2017 - 9:46am

The Nebo Education Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District. Each month, the foundation meets to discuss grant requests and other ways to raise money for the continual improvement of Nebo School District. For the month of October, there were many teachers who submitted requests for grant money to better their classrooms and/or school as a whole. Congratulations to the following teachers who received grants from the Nebo Education Foundation! These teachers continually benefit our district with their service to their students.

  • Spanish Oaks Elementary - Gregg Crockett

“The purpose for writing this grant was for our students to show their work that doesn't get seen.  As we move into a more technological age, students are doing more and more with digital learning. This year my class made their own websites. On these sites they will be putting other digital work, i.e.: Writing, Digital Media Arts, Slides, and many more projects to engage their learning. Unlike most of our student work that we are able to display outside in the halls, this work has gone unnoticed by the students, faculty and our community. By having a TV installed and connected to the Liva mini computer, we will be able to display ALL our students’ work in the hall. A slideshow presentation for the entire school, as well as those who enter the building, will be visible for all to see and appreciate.”

“Beyond being able to place students’ digital works on the screen, we will also be able to have announcements and reminders from the school running in banner format. This will provide a service to all patrons who enter and exit the school, informing them of what we are accomplishing with our students, and what is happening at our school.”

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.
