The students in Mr. Thurgood's class had to grab a plastic cup using a rubber band and stack the cups on top of each other. Activities like these require teamwork, build the classroom rapport and community, and are fun! Nice work, Mr. Thurgood's class!

Springville Junior High shows their love for Salem Junior High students.

Salem Junior High School News - Fri, 09/14/2018 - 2:16pm

The student council at Springville Junior coordinated an act of love and support for our students today. They recognized that some of our students are stressed and worried about the Pole Creek fire as it threatens their homes. So, they sent a large banner with messages of support along with a thousand hand-written notes with treats attached that will be handed out to students.

We are very touched by the love and support that the students at Springville Junior have shown during this time.

Announcement from the Choir!

Good afternoon! I have decided to postpone the SHHS Mattress Sale until next Saturday, September 22nd. With the evacuation order still in effect, the possibility of home loss, and the poor air quality combined, tomorrow isn't the right time for us to move foward with the sale. The plan for now is to hold it next Saturday, September 22nd, 10am-5pm. If there isn't any improvement of the fire conditions, or if things worsen by next Saturday, I'll look at potentially rescheduling again. But, I'm optimistic that the wonderful firefighters will make good progress in the next few days and there won't be any losses. But, we'll keep a very close eye.                                                Thank you!             Justin Bills

Fire and Evacuations

Salem Junior High School News - Fri, 09/14/2018 - 9:23am

Although school is being held today, please do what you feel is best for your students. We understand that families need to be together during difficult times, and we will work closely with students who miss school because of the fire and evacuations.

Also, students who come to school today will be kept inside all day to avoid breathing the contaminated air.

Mt. Loafer believes the road to success is always under construction! To help support our students, we will be encouraging them to build a new mindset skill each month beginning at our school-wide assemblies. September’s skill is “I can set academic and behavior goals and work hard to achieve them.” Today we joined together as a school to learn about the skill. We also learned our new Mt. Loafer dance! We are so excited to watch our students and faculty grow this year!

Parent Newsletter 9/10/18

THANK YOU- Thank you for your continued efforts in keeping our pick up and drop off zones safe both before and after school. As a reminder, please continue to use the pull-through zones as a single lane, do not get out of your cars and watch for both students and parents alike. If you need to park, use a marked parking stall to retrieve your students. We ask that you escort your students across 250 West and do not allow them to cross without adult supervision. Those students riding the buses will not be allowed to have friends ride with them, unless there is an emergency. Again, thank you for your cooperation as we navigate the beginning of a new year and learn the best safety precautions for our grizzlies!  

School Lunch Accounts:FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH. If you haven't applied for free and reduced lunches for this school year do it ASAP!!  Students who had been on this program last year and not reapplied for the 2018-2019 school year will not continue to receive these benefits BEGINNING October 1, 2018. 

Also, if you had a negative lunch account balance from last school year, are currently negative or foresee your accounts running low please come in to the office to settle up your accounts. If you have questions you may call the lunchroom at any time and we will happily assist you. (801) 423-2705

Student Attendance: Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating. If your student misses school please call and excuse their absences. As always, please contact us if you need some assistance with your student’s attendance. 

PTO News: BOX TOP COLLECTION! September 13-14. Bring in 10 or more Box Tops and you get a bag of popcorn! Look for the Box Top table outside at lunch recess.

School-wide Read Aloud - Restart

Salem Junior High School News - Wed, 09/05/2018 - 7:43am
Attributions: 

In an effort to encourage literacy with all of our students, the English department decided to try a school-wide read aloud to start off the year. Every English teacher has been reading the book Restart, by Gordon Korman, to their classes. Students have been participating in online discussions with other classes, answering questions about the development of the story and the various themes that they have seen developing. 

Restart is about a school bully who receives a head injury after falling off of his roof and wakes up several days later with amnesia. He doesn't remember anything about his life before the fall and as he slowly learns who he is, he has to decide what kind of person he wants to be. It's a fun read with a great message for students. We will be reading the book for about another week, but the English department would like to encourage parents to read it as well, so they can have a conversation about it with their students.

Parent Newsletter   9/4/18

Early Arrival for Students:Please note that the school will be accessible to ALL students beginning at 8:00am. We do not provide direct student supervision until 8:30. If your student arrives early we will ask them to play on the playground or sit in the office until appropriate supervision is provided. At 8:30am all students will be allowed to access classrooms or play outside with direct supervision. And as always, we kindly ask kids not to run, play or wander the hallways or other classrooms in our building. Students are our top priority and we want them all the have a great experience each day! 

Bus Lane Pick-up/drop-off: Some clarification of where to access your students before or after school. Please be courteous and follow the painted lines on the curbing. 

Yellow painted lines = parent pick-up and drop-off zones (North & South ends)

Green painted lines = bus zone (Center East side)

We invite you to drop your student off or pick them up in the correct locations. The flow of traffic though tricky at times is critical to helping students arrive and leave safely. If you choose the North end of the building please pull through from the South end and leave on the North end. This will help us all do our best to get our grizzlies here and home. 

Please do not pull in to the green busing zone. Even if you do not see a bus we currently have 8 buses to transport students at Mt. Loafer and it is not an approved area for parents to park or pull through. 

PTO News: BOX TOP COLLECTION! September 13-14. Bring in 10 or more Box Tops and you get a bag of popcorn! Look for the Box Top table outside at lunch recess.
