BYU Theatre Group visits Art City Elementary School

The BYU Theatre group "The Glorious Story Emporium" visited Art City Elementary school on Tuesday December 12, 2017.  The Theatre group started with a basic story then asked students for various ideas to make the story theirs.   An adventurer had gone into the woods and met some wolves that were being ruled by a pixy queen; the twisting of the plot made wolves good and not bad. A problem was presented then resolved resulting in everyone being happy.

Although it is Young Company’s first fully improvised show, it is still fully produced. “The Glorious Story Emporium” is equipped with costumes and props that can be used in multiple ways. The actors have a lot to draw from to create new fairy tales every performance.

“It does not look like an improv show. It is full, lush and the team that created the sets and costumes were challenged to be creative as possible, which is a rare opportunity when designing a show,” said Livingston.

Article: Topaz Field trip

On November 14, the 8th graders at SJHS had the opportunity to go on a field trip to the Topaz Museum in Delta and learn about the Japanese Internment Camps that were in operation during WW2.

Many of the eighth graders enjoyed learning about what life was like for the Americans of Japanese ancestry.

“It was really moving to see what they went through.” Chloe Sleight states, as she talks about her experience.

“ My favorite part of the field trip was going inside of the barracks,” Laurissa Blakey explains, “They didn’t have insulation so it got so cold and hot all the time. It was just really sad to see what they had to go through.”

“The most fascinating thing about Topaz, was when we got to actually go into the barracks and see what it was like for a family of 4.” Dallin Hatfield explains.

Something else that they got to see was what the internees did on their free time- Shell art.

“They made these beautiful things will just some shells and nail polish.” Blakey continues.

This was definitely a one a great learning experience for 8th graders and surely to be something they will forever remember.

Article: Future Farmers of America

Springville Junior High School News - Wed, 12/20/2017 - 10:58am

At SJHS there is program called FFA which represents Future Farmers of America. In this program you learn about many different things such as agracoucher. FFA is a program which helps kids throughout America become better friends and farmers. Today, the National FFA organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

In FFA you have the option to get rewards by earning them. A few ways you can earn a award is by being a good person ,listening to instructions, and being an outstanding student.  If you do FFA you have many opportunities to do service projects. While doing the projects you can earn awards.  In FFA they believe that it is important that you do in classroom work just as much as real life experiences. That is why you do both. You do classwork just as much as you go around and lean and see stuff in real life.

Many of the people who do FFA here at our school enjoy it . All of them say it is supper fun and they loved taking the class. Morgan Roper who is in FFA Said “FFA is so fun I love being in it.” But FFA isn’t all about having fun it is also about hard work. Shara Whatabe said “FFA is fun but it is also taught me a lot about who I am and what I want to be when I grow up.” FFA can teach you a lot about who you are and what you want enjoy doing and what you want to be when you grow up.

In FFA you also learn about agriculture, food and, animals.  Agriculture is learning about framing and taking care of land and learning how to use the equipment farmers use. When you learn about food you learn how to grow it and take care of it so it will be healthy. And when you learn about animals you find out how to take care of them and how to keep them strong and healthy and to know what to feed them. FFA sound super fun and I would love doing it and all of you should consider it because it could help you find out about what you love doing, and what you want to be. That is why everyone should do FFA.

Article: Where will College take you?

Springville Junior High School News - Wed, 12/20/2017 - 10:46am

The students at Springville Junior High are not completely aware of the fun waiting for them when they came to school on College week.  The counselors had prepared activities for the students to do as the week progressed.  Many activities excited the students and got them in the College mood.  One of the things that the students learned form college week was that  people who go to college and graduate get paid 0.9 million more than those that do not go to college and graduate.  At the beginning of the week they had us stay in our third period class and talk about college and we asked our teachers any questions we had.  

Many colleges are options for the students at Springville Junior High, but the most tempting options are the ones that are close to home.  Lydia Felix, a ninth grader, said “I want to go to UVU because my cousin goes there and it has good education.  I have also heard that it is really cheap to go to school there.”  “I want to go to BYU, because it has a wonderful engineering program,” says Kimball Snapp, an eighth grader at Springville Junior.  Another eighth grader, Ellie Taylor, said that she wanted to go to BYU because it is simply amazing and her family goes there.  Ashlee Boston, a seventh grader, states her opinion by saying  that BYU was the place for her because she wants to be close to home.  She continued to say that her dad also went to BYU so that was another reason she desired to go there.  Though there are many different reasons that people go where they go many people are influenced by future jobs they want to have and where their family went.  

About a month ago the students came to school and were reminded that they would be talking about college all throughout the entire week.  During this time the counselors planned activities to have the students participate in throughout the whole week.  On the first day the students had the opportunity to sign the poster on the walls that had the college that they wanted to attend.  The posters were provided by the SJHS art program.  Some of the Colleges included, but are not limited to, SUU, UVU, BYU, U of U, and USU.  During quest time in the week the students and teachers stayed in their third period and talked about College and what it did for the rest of your life.  Ellie Taylor said, “I believe that College week is the counselors trying to prepare us for college.”  Kimball earnestly replied saying, “I think it is meant to inspire students to go to College.”  Ashlee thought about it and then stated that she thought they were wanting the students to learn about College.  

Scholarships and degrees were an important part of the entire week as they provide help with schooling and they help you get the type of job you want.  Lydia said, “I would like to get a scholarship for athletics because I enjoy playing sports.”  She goes on to say that she wants to get a four year degree in Physical Education or culinary arts because she likes food and sports.  Taylor said, “I want to get a scholarship for my education and live my life.  I am not sure what type of degree I want or what I will get it in.”  Boston said that she wanted to get her scholarship for academics and that she wanted a four year degree.  She goes on to say, “I want to get my degree to be a nurse degree of a vet because I like to help people and animals.”  Kimball explained that he would like to get his degree in mathematics or in athletics.   He says, “Because I have always been fascinated with Aerospace engineer, I want to get my degree in it and at least have a four year degree.”  

Many people do not realize that the home is the perfect place to talk about college and scholarships.  The importance of talking about college at home can’t be stretched enough, the students need to be informed to the best of their knowledge.  The more knowledge the students have the better informed decision they can make.  The students will learn also by their parents examples and will look to you for answers, and if you are informed the more helpful you are to your children.  As Benjamin Franklin said, “The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance.”  Allan Bloom talked about college and stated, “The importance of these years for an American cannot be overestimated.”

Article: The Talent Show: Behind the Curtain and More.

Ah the talent show! One of the biggest, if not, the biggest event at SJHS. An opportunity for students to show the school what tricks they’ve got up their sleeves, or simply a burning passion for music and the arts. It looks fun to be a part of, and many of these acts shock us because they come from the people who tend to be outcasts. But what lies behind the curtain of confidence these people drape over their faces when performing? If you keep reading, you’ll get an idea as to how these performers really feel. Before we get into what the contestants feel, let’s listen to what the audience has to say.

First off, what kind of performances are you expecting? This year’s freshmen, Sky David, Marsha Woods, Arianie Perez, and Daniel Boggess all agree that there’s going to be a lot of music related performances.

“A lot of singing, dancing, and instruments” Arianie said.

Another thing we should go over is of these students would ever consider auditioning, and what they’d do. When this topic popped up, it was a direct “no” from Sky, but she did say she’d play guitar and do it with a band. For Marsha, it depends on what she’d want to do.

“I’d probably show my art or an animation”, she answered.

What Daniel would consider doing is sing and “maybe an easy song on the guitar.”

Before we move on these people have a question for the contestants.

“Is it scary to be up there?” (Sky David)

“How are you not nervous in front of people?” (Arianie Perez)

Now that we’re through with that, let’s listen to what Hanah Cornaby and Christine White, two of the stars of the show have to say. How long did it take for them to figure out what they wanted to do, and were they hesitant about auditioning. Both girls were hesitant about the auditions.

“I was. I knew there were lots of talented people”, said Hanah.

“Yeah, especially since I wrote my own song.” (Christine White).

Judging by the applause they received from the crowd that Friday morning, they both did an amazing job. Well, that’s all the time we have. So what was your favorite performance and will you consider signing up for next year?
