On Monday, August 21, SFJHS students enjoyed watching the solar eclipse outside on the south lawn. The science teachers had created viewing projectors and viewing boxes, so even those who did not have solar eclipse rated glasses, could still see the moon eclipse the sun. 

7th Grade English students have an opportunity this week to read their first article of the month titled “What is an Eclipse?” This will be the first of many cross-curricular connections for SFJHS students this year. 

Several students had the opportunity to travel out of state to witness the total eclipse. Andrew Heap said, “It was indescribable. You were even able to see stars and planets, including Mercury, which not very many people see because it is so close to the sun. I would travel long distances to see that again.” Trenton Spencer said, “Thirty minutes before the eclipse, it started to get really cold and dark. Then when it was total, the sun was totally blocked and the sun's atmosphere was white. Right before it ended, there was a bright white light and it warmed up very quickly.” Adam Blake said, “It was the best experience of my whole summer. Can’t wait 'til 2045!!!!!!!”

SFJHS now offers AP Human Geography, a class for 9th grade students who will prepare to take the AP Human Geography test at the end of the year. This college-level course is highly rigorous. In this course, students study systematic patterns and processes that shape human understanding. 

Tracee Jones says, “I took AP because I want to learn more about the people all over the world and why they act or say or do what they do.” Alissa Simmons says, “I want to push myself. I have to admit, it has been challenging.” McCade Davis says, “It’s going to be a challenge, especially with other activities going on in my life, but I think I’m up for the challenge.”

This class is taught by Ms. Terry. It’s an exciting opportunity for our students here at SFJHS. Good luck to our first ever class of AP Human Geography!

Pack Time Begins Tomorrow

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 08/29/2017 - 6:34pm

Spanish Fork Junior’s Pack Time is designed to motivate and give help to students who may need extra support or are struggling academically. Its purpose is also to reward students who consistently do well in all of their classes at school. 

Each day (except for Mondays) students will have the opportunity to attend either an intervention or an enrichment experience.

• All Students receive a mini-report card during 2nd period that shows their current grade in all classes.

• Students who are passing all of their classes with at least a C will have the opportunity to participate in an enrichment activity of their choice. The activities may include athletics, clubs, games, movies, computers, arts, crafts, public speaking, poetry slam, writing for publishing, and socializing.

• Students who are deficient in a class are required to attend an intervention in order to receive additional instruction or to make up work. They must attend the class in which they are deficient; in the case of multiple deficiencies they should attend the priority class for that day.

• If students have a passing grade but need to make up or re-do work for a class, with teacher approval, they may choose to attend an intervention in place of enrichment.

• If a teacher needs a student to make up or re-do work they may request that the student attend their intervention time in place of enrichment, regardless of the student’s graDE.

TO VIEW THE PACK TIME SCHEDULE, go to Parent and Student Information in the menu to the left and click on Pack Time Schedule.

New schedule aims for increased students success

Landmark High School News - Tue, 08/29/2017 - 8:44am

Landmark's teachers and staff have been looking forward to this school year since before last year's graduation! They spent a good portion of last year researching and laying the groundwork for the implementation of a new schedule for the 17-18 school year.

Each traditional term of 10 class courses will now be split into two mini-terms consisting of 5 courses each. The new 'Mini-term' schedule encourages teacher-student relationships, reduces student course load, offer more fresh starts, and promotes student accountability, while retaining the credit load of the old schedule.
