Lobo Update 8-22-17

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 08/22/2017 - 2:45pm

Parents, Students and Friends –

Beginning of School Lobo Update:
We are off and running into the 2017-2018 school year! We had a successful 7th grade orientation and open house for new and returning students and parents. It was great to see so many students eager to start the new school year. It was also great to see the faces and range of emotions from the 7th grade parents! We hope you saw how excited our teachers were to have your children in their classes. We hope you saw how thrilled the PTA parents were when you signed up to help with that part of our school. We hope you saw the custodians finishing their work and helping in the halls. We hope you saw the secretaries and counselors working to ensure all would be ready for your child to start that first day off right. And, we hope you saw the administrators helping anywhere we could. We take care of children. We love what we do. We hope the very best for every student in our school this year.

First Days of Pack Time
We will not be starting regular Pack Time until Wednesday, August 30th. Students remain with their 2nd period teacher during what would normally be Pack Time. The teacher will review policies and school rules so all students are aware of the expectations while at school. We will also have a lesson on our yearly theme, LOBO HEROES!

Picture Packets
Packets will be given to students today to bring home. Students will get their picture taken during their science class. There is no obligation to purchase a picture package, but ALL students must have their picture taken for directory purposes.

Lobo T-Shirts
After pictures, students will receive a new Lobo t-shirt to wear throughout the year! There will be special Lobo Days where students can earn a treat if they are caught wearing their shirt. We will announce the days in advance.

Class Changes
The last day for class changes will be Friday, August 25th. A $5.00 class change fee will be charged except for incomplete schedules. Please note that not all schedule changes can be accommodated due to the number and times of sections offered as well as class size concerns.

Upcoming SFJHS Activities:
•       Aug 29th: Flag Football Intramurals 2:45
•       Aug 30th: Flag Football Intramurals 2:45
•       Sept. 1st: Golf Tryouts at Spanish Oaks Golf Course 3pm, Flag Football Intramurals 2:45

The National FFA Organization announced that Jake Jones, from Spanish Fork High in Nebo School District, was selected as a national finalist for the National FFA Proficiency Award in Wildlife Production and Management - Entrepreneurship/Placement. Jones is one of only four people chosen to compete for this award at the national finals to be held this October during the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.

The proficiency awards recognize outstanding student achievement in agribusiness gained through establishment of a new business, working for an existing company or otherwise gaining hands-on career experience. The Wildlife Production and Management - Entrepreneurship/Placement award is one of 47 proficiency program areas FFA members can participate in to develop valuable experience and leadership skills at the local, state and national levels. 

Jones, a member of the Spanish Fork FFA Chapter, became eligible for the national award after winning the Utah state FFA competition earlier this year. In recognition of being a finalist, each of the four finalists will receive a plaque and $500. The national winner of the Wildlife Production and Management - Entrepreneurship/Placement Award will receive an additional $500 during a special ceremony at the National FFA Convention & Expo.

This award is sponsored by Yamaha Motor Corporation USA as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

Porter Olsen was also named a Agriscience Fair finalist and will have the chance to compete at National FFA Convention. He will present his project on how light effects the growth rate of turkeys along with 13 other finalists. Gold and Silver rankings will be given and a top 3 selected. Two junior high students Ashley Olsen and Rylei Voorhees were also selected as Agriscience Fair finalists.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 649,355 student members who belong to one of 7,859 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The organization is also supported by 225,891 alumni members in 1,934 alumni chapters throughout the U.S.
