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.

Hello, Brockbank Families!

What a great beginning to the BEST year ever!  We had a great first week and we are ready for many more!  Thanks for having your child ready each day, on time, and with good attitudes!  Brockbank is such a wonderful place to be!

We want to welcome all of our new kindergarten students to school tomorrow!  We look so forward to each of them coming to Brockbank!  It will be a very special day!

Marquee:  We are thrilled with our new marquee and appreciate your support in having your child bring in Box Tops!  We had a special ribbon cutting ceremony on the first day of school and it was fun to have all of our students be a part of that celebration!  (We are still working out the bugs in learning how to work the marquee, and we plan to have the lights dim at nighttime.  Thanks so much for your patience!) Please continue to send your Box Tops, as you can see the wonderful things they can provide for our school!  At the end of last year, your child was given a sheet of paper to fill up with Box Tops.  Please send those sheets back to school!  We will start collecting them again!  Thanks for your support!

T-Shirts:  If you would like to order your child a Bronco T-shirt, we will take orders until Friday.

Picture Day;  Picture Day will be Thursday, Sept. 7th, all day long.  Please watch for picture packets to come home! 

Pop Into Reading Celebration: We are hoping that your child read all summer long and kept track of his/her reading on the summer POP INTO READING Challenge!  Help your child remember to bring in his/her reading calendar from summer and turn it into the office.  We are planning our party on Sept. 8th!

As you know, we have a new theme and mission statement this year!  We hope you were able to get our parent letter at the Open House, along with the school magnet.  If you didn’t, please come and get them in the office.   The letter explains some safety policies that we want to make sure you know about.  PLEASE go over them with your child.  We want your child to be safe coming and leaving school.

We also invite you to LIKE us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram, and Twitter, as well as our own Brockbank website!  Follow us on Instagram--#Brockbankbest, #Lookatbrockbank, and #BrockbankBFF

Thanks for your support and for sending us the BEST students ever!

Sierra Bonita 4th graders had the opportunity to participate in "ABC 4 Weatherbug" with meteorologist, Dan Pope, sponsored by Arbys. This broadcast was done on LIVE TV.  I will post the Broadcast once ABC 4 Utah posts it on their website.

What a fun opportunity for these students to see behind the scenes and maybe one day, they can be a meteorologist just like Dan Pope.  Students also sang the Sierra Bonita Song, some students were interviewed by the meteorologist, Dan Pope.

A HUGE Thank you to Arbys and ABC 4 Utah Weatherbug for allowing our students with this opportunity. A Thank you, Terena Anderson, for putting this all togther! 

Dan Pope, was so incredible, he took time out of his busy schedule to take pictures with those who wanted them.

Lobo Update 8/28/17

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Mon, 08/28/2017 - 6:36pm

Parents, Students and Friends –

SFJHS has a belief that all students, faculty and staff belong to a community. In our community we practice the Lobo Way. That is, we strengthen the pack, learn to learn, forgive and accept, and find our voice. Throughout the school year and in all that we do we will learn about and practice each of these beliefs. The first belief is we will strengthen the pack. This means we will positively contribute to our classes, our school, and our community. We will see the good in others and build confidence, and we will respect and encourage individual strengths.

This afternoon I watched a group of friends at lunch out on the lawn. A girl came out of our building with a bit of anxiety about some boys who were squeaking their shoes in the hall during lunch. The noise hurt her sensitive ears and she was angry that the boys would be so loud. She had a hard time expressing her feelings about it, but the group listened to her as they were genuinely interested in helping. They could have ignored this girl, but they didn’t…they listened until an adult came by to help their new friend. This group of friends positively contributed to their school by just listening. The girl was able to regain her composure and left to her classroom happy. Our motto, by Rudyard Kipling, says. “For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.” There was a great deal of strength in the small act of listening today.

SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL NOMINATIONS
Every public school has a school community council consisting of the principal, elected school employees and parents. Parent input is important in the decisions made by our council. School Community Council (SCC) needs THREE PARENT NOMINATIONS to be on the council this school year. If you are interested in serving on the SJHS SCC, email Mr. Blake Mortensen at blake.mortensen@nebo.edu.

GOLF SECOND ROUND TRYOUTS
Thanks for participating in first round of golf tryouts. Second tryout will be Tuesday August 29, at the Spanish Oaks golf course 4:14 pm. A list of those invited to second tryouts is posted at the front office as well as coach Bartholomew's room 46

SWIM PARTY!
Friday Sept. 1st is the back to school swim party for SFJHS. The cost is $1 per person, please bring your families! Just let them know you are with SFJHS. At the Spanish Fork High School Pool from 3:30pm until 6:00pm.

SFJHS CROSS COUNTRY
Attention all future cross-country runners! There will be an information meeting held on Tuesday, August 29th right after school in Miss Brooks' room (26). Come learn how your running shoes can transform any bad day into a good one, frustration into speed, self-doubt into confidence, and chocolate cake into muscle!

INTRAMURAL SPORTS
Our first intramural sport this year will be FLAG FOOTBALL. Any 7th, 8th, or 9th grader is welcome to play. Get your team of 7 together and get signed up with Coach Johnson or Coach Carlson. We will play every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday right after school from 2:50 - 3:50 pm beginning August 29th. Get your team signed up and join the fun! There will be prizes for tournament champions.

BASKETBALL intramurals are every Friday from 6:00am-7:55am throughout the school year!

JOIN SFJHS PTA THIS YEAR AND BE INVOLVED!
PTA is not a time commitment if you don't want it to be.  Your membership and support alone help create many wonderful experiences and opportunities for students as well as helping our amazing teachers and staff. There are opportunities to be involved if you would like, as well as many benefits to students AND parents when parents are involved and show support.  Join now with a small $5 membership fee. Please pay with this PayPal link (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=879EMUDHDWUDL
