In this astounding assembly, students of all ages showed off their fascinating talents on the big stage. These students worked hard, and it was their turn to show us what they could do. There was tons of singing, dancing, piano songs, lots of other musical performances, and much, much, more! There was even a special show done by the student council, which included the songs, “Under the Sea”, and “JAWS.” It was loads of tremendous fun for everyone and all the talents were incredibly amazing! Thank you to all the participants of the stars assembly this year! Go Lobos!

Friday, May 4, an open house was held at Brockbank Elementary honoring two amazing teachers, Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson and Ms. Kristi Jensen. These two ladies have touched the lives of many children throughout the years and will be greatly missed. We wish them both the best!   

Kristi Jensen - Special Education Teacher,  Resource, Behavior Unit & Self Contained. Kristi has taught at Grant, Larsen & Brockbank. She has 30 years of service in Nebo, 1 year in another District . 

“My teaching career has come full circle. I did my student teaching at Brockbank Elementary at the beginning of my career as a young woman full of hopes and dreams of impacting special education children. I am ending my career at Brockbank having fulfilled my hopes and dreams and have noticed the impact on my students lives. I have been blessed to work with countless co-workers who have encouraged me and inspired me. I have had amazing Principals who have supported and advised me. I have been highly trained by the Special Education Department. I have written and attended thousands of IEP’s. I end my career full of love for educators, para educators, co-workers, bosses/Principals and most of all the children – whom have kept me both sane and insane for the past 31 years.” 

Alexandra Dedrickson- Teacher – Brockbank Elementary 33 years of service in Nebo  

“Thirty three years ago I was hired by Nebo School District to teach 1st grade. Those 33 years have flown by and I realized that during those years I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades along with 9 years in Reading Recovery. I have been privileged to work with the best principals, teachers, students and parents at Brookside and Brockbank Elementary schools. As a teacher who thoroughly enjoyed teaching reading, I find myself closing this chapter in my life and beginning a new series.”

SFJHS AP Human Geography Class is Huge Success!

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 05/22/2018 - 5:59pm
Attributions: By Gaylynn Parker

It’s the end of the school year, and SFJHS’s first ever AP Human Geography class has been a huge success. Students sat for the exam last Friday, but they won’t know their scores until July. One student commented, “I thought the exam was actually really fun. At the beginning of the year, it sounded really scary because I was not sure if I would be able to know everything for the exam, but Ms. Terry is the best teacher and I know everybody else in the class agrees, so, as the year went on, my stress level about the test went down. I hope I did really well, and I feel good about my answers.” Another student said, “The exam was moderately difficult. I think I did well for it being my first AP test!”

What do students learn about human geography? One student said, “I learned a lot of different aspects about how humans interact with their environment around them.” Another student said, “I have always grown up thinking that America was some sort of refuge to the world, and everyone was equal, but over the last year, I’ve learned about the U.S. from a new perspective.” Still another student commented, “There are many more problems going on in the world than we think. Developing countries face many problems to improve their living conditions and to become developed. I learned many new things this year and this class has prepared me for the future!”

Congratulations to this first year of students who willingly spent so much of their time to do well in this class. “Whether I pass or fail, I think I did the best I could have done, so I am going to be happy with my score no matter what.” Best of luck to all you of, AP Human Geography class of 2017-2018.

Mrs. Taylor's first grade class participated in a "break out" activity with Mr. Peterson.   It was a math review and the students had to work together to solve problems.  The math problem answers then were clues for the code to the locks.  They had 5 different locks to open.  The students loved doing this activity and sure are smart first graders.  Thank you Mr. Peterson for this fun activity!

Brockbank Bulletin

Brockbank Elementary News - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 11:25pm

Hello, Brockbank Families!

WOW!  It is hard to believe that we are down to the final week of school.  I want to tell you how much I have enjoyed this year!   It has been a great year and I have loved getting to know each student better and better!  I have loved having them come into my office with “blue tickets” (for good behavior).  I have loved watching them play outside at recess, and I have loved watching them interact with their peers and with their teachers.  We have such a tremendous staff and I love and admire each person that works so hard each day to make a difference for our students!  I appreciate the support and help you all give to our school!  We have amazing families and the good values that you teach your child reflects in the good things that happen at school each day!  Thanks so much for all you do!

Now, we have a few changes that I need to explain!  I am sad to tell you that we got a call from Spanish Fork City and the pool will NOT be ready for our annual Swimming Activity on the last day of school!  I was not able to tell the students, so they are unaware of this change.  Our teachers are so disappointed too, but they were quick to come up with some fun activities for our students for the last day of school.    We will still plan on having  lunch so please plan on having your child keep his/her original order of either home or school lunch for that day.   We will be ending school at 11:30 for bus students and noon for our walkers.  There will be NO water-type activities, so please do not have your child come in swimwear.

As we stated earlier, our school will be undergoing a lot of changes this summer.  That is why we will not be having summer school.  Our school MAY tentatively be without power from June 11-June 22.  Because of this, I am not sure that our office will be open.  I will keep you updated on the progress of the work that is being done.  Please know that if you need anything during that time, you will still be able to contact me through email.

Summer Reading:  We will be having our summer reading challenge!  Please watch for more information coming home with your child.

Library:  To help with reading throughout the summer, we are going to have a short period of time when students will have access to the school library.  It will be open from July 10th-August 7th, from 9:00-11:00.  STUDENTS WILL NEED TO COME THROUGH THE NORTH SIDE OF THE SCHOOL THROUGH THE 6TH GRADE ENTRANCE.

REGISTRATION:  Please remember that ALL STUDENTS, including kindergarten students, will need to register for school before the school year begins!  Online registration will open July 25th, and in-person registration will be August 1st.  I will be sending more information as it gets closer to those dates.
We invite you to LIKE us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as our own Brockbank website!  Follow us on Instagram--#Brockbankbest, #Lookatbrockbank, and #BrockbankBFF

Again, thank you for everything!  I wish you the very best summer and hope you have a wonderful break! 
Thanks for being the BEST!

Principal Newsletter May 21st - 25th

Riverview Elementary News - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 6:34pm

Principal Moment

I am not going to lie; the last month of school is sooo busy, teachers sometimes wish they could fast-forward to the last day of school.  When the last day comes, they want to sloooowww it down.

This year on the last day of school, we will try to make it like any other day.  We will talk to students in the halls; we will laugh at jokes we have heard twenty times, we will ask what colleagues and kiddos have planned for the summer. 

Ten minutes before the bell rings, teachers will begin their final speech of the year.  It will go something like this, “Boys and girls, it’s been a great year…” At this point teachers’ voices begin to crack.  “And now it is time for you to move to the next grade.  You’ve worked hard and you are ready.”  Finally, the last bell will ring.  Teachers will stand up, wipe their eyes and without any direction the students will line up for hugging.  Teachers will bite their lips, tousle hair and pat heads good-bye. 

When the students are all gone, teachers will put the classroom to bed, load memories into a box, stack the chairs to one side, erase the “1 day left” from the corner of the whiteboard, close the cupboard doors, take one last look around the room, turn off the lights, and lock the door.

Then the year will be over.  Just like that.

Students will be dismissed at noon on Friday.  Lunch will be served at 10:10 for those students who would like to eat lunch.  Pizza is the only menu item; chicken nuggets and sandwiches will not be available.   Buses will be running the regular routes.  

Lunch Menu for the week

  • Tuesday 22nd – Corn Dogs/fries
  • Wednesday 23rd – Pizza Rippers
  • Thursday 24th – Country fried steak/fries
  • Friday – Pizza only – no chicken nuggets or cheese sandwich

Video postponed

We had plans to end the year creating a Riverview music video.  This plan has been postponed until the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.  Thank you for being understanding.


On behalf of the Riverview students and teachers, I would like to thank the PTA for their service during this 2017-2018 school year!  This work is very important to the experiences our children have at Riverview.  Your contributions provide the “something extra special” for the students.

Your work this year has resulted in some real successes.  These include: the Spring Carnival, Book Fairs, Red/Green Ribbon Week, White Ribbon Week, Art Show, Parent/Child Activities, Teacher Appreciation Week, Popcorn Fridays, BoxTops for Education Drives, Classroom Parties, SEP Dinners, Reflections Contest, and Parent Helpers in the classrooms!  The number of parents who were involved in activities this year is truly remarkable!  The true beneficiaries of your efforts are the students at Riverview!  Again, thank you for your efforts!

Lobo Update 5/21/17

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 3:50pm

 Parents, Students and Friends –


This will be the last Lobo Update this school year.  Many thanks go out to all our supportive parents, our hardworking students and our amazing teachers for a successful year!  Look for the next Lobo Update in mid-July. It will contain registration dates and other back to school information.


Thursday, May 24th is Lagoon day - Buses will leave promptly at 8:00 a.m. Please arrive at school by 7:40 a.m.  Because we have to pay the bus company for your student’s seat whether they go or not, refunds will not be available to those that miss the bus. In order to accurately account for each student, they will need to ride the same bus up and back.  On the bus ride up students will be informed that buses will leave Lagoon promptly at 3:30 p.m. We estimate that we will be home between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Some parents have asked about picking up their own student at a prearranged time.  If you are planning on picking your student up at Lagoon rather than having them ride the bus home please provide a parent/guardian note, signed and dated, giving permission to your student to be released. Students must give this note to the teacher as they board the bus here at SFJHS so that we are aware of the situation.  Because of student safety concerns, only students that provide a written note will be permitted to be released and not ride the bus home. School breakfast will be served on Lagoon day and school will be held during normal hours for those students who choose not to go to Lagoon or are not eligible to attend.


Friday, May 25th is the last day of school! NO BACKPACKS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE BUILDING ON FRIDAY.  Students should bring only their yearbook and a pen to sign yearbooks this day. If a student brings a backpack it will need to be left in the office until school ends.  School will be released at 11:15 a.m. - Please plan accordingly - HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!


Students are invited to access the library during the summer break. Here are the summer dates: Tuesday, June 5th; Monday, July 16th; Wednesday, August 1st.  School doors will be open from 8:00am - 2:00pm. Just come in and go to the Library - Mrs. Wilson will be here ready to help you!


If your student didn’t buy a yearbook there were a few extras ordered.  They will be sold on a first come first serve basis until they are gone.  The cost is $30 and needs to be paid in the office to Mrs. Hall.


Utah Food Bank - summer meal program in Utah County will be offering lunches this summer.  All youth up to age 18 may receive a free healthy lunch. The program begins June 11th and will continue through August 17th, Monday through Friday, 11:30am to 1:00pm. (No distribution 7/20-7/24) Lunches will be served at the Spanish Fork City Center Library Park, 100 East 50 South. No registration is required. For more information contact Kerri Duncan at 801-887-1251 or


Way to go Band, Orchestra and Choir students on outstanding performances in your recent spring concerts! All three concerts were well attended and showcased the amazing musical talent we have here at SFJHS. Also, congratulations to our Lobo spring sport teams - boys tennis team, SFJHS track team, freshman softball team and our freshman baseball team, on the completion of a successful season.
