Spanish Fork Junior High’s annual Fall Hike took place on Wednesday Sept. 19th.  And those who boarded the bus this morning were in for a real treat. 

We hiked to Stewart Falls up Provo Canyon above the Sundance Ski Resort.  The country we were hiking through was beautiful and the weather was perfect.  Stewart Fall is one of the most beautiful and picturesque place along the Wasatch Front.  The waterfall is over two hundred feet high and flows over two tiers.  The fall colors can be magnificent. 

Once at the falls, many brave students tested out the water under the water fall and had a great time.  All made it back safely.  It’s awesome to be able to enjoyable day out in the beautiful Utah Mountains!

Fall Captains Academy was a big hit once again. 

Our fantastic Captains, George Heywood, Sarah Seely, and Sydnie Smith, were chosen by their coaches and team mates and represented our school well. 

At the conference, they heard excellent messages from local High school principals Bart Peery and Everett Kelepolo.  The messages on sportsmanship and leadership were great reminders for everyone. 

What an awesome opportunity for these student athletes to learn!  Now they’ll be able to share their knowledge with their team mates!

Our first Cross-Country meet was a great success! We competed against all schools in the district at Mapleton Jr. High.

Our captains, Sarah Seeley and George Heywood, led the team in stretches before the race which started with a big Lobo cheer! Our team did a fantastic job encouraging each other to run their best.

The girls’ team took 4th place and the boys’ team took 5th. Ryan Olson, 7th grade, took first place overall in the boys race.

Coach Brooks and Coach Zacharias are proud of each runner and excited to see what the rest of the season brings. GO LOBOS!

On Saturday, September 8, members of the SFJHS Student Council and Honor Society woke up before sunrise and traveled to Sandy to attend the Utah Association of Student Councils Leadership Conference. These students attended different workshops to learn new ways to become leaders in their school and increase student involvement. The breakout sessions were focused on being unique, facing challenges, getting the word out, and spectacular assemblies. The students returned with a lot of great ideas and are excited to share them at SFJHS! Thank you to the advisers Mrs. Kelly, Mrs. Goates, and Miss Dannelly for taking the students up and Mrs. LeMmon and Mrs. Hall for helping to organize the field trip.

Recently, my AP Human Geography class was challenged to "Build the World." 

They were given 135 mixed-up pieces of a HUGE world map and challenged to put it together as quickly as they could.  It took them 20 minutes and they had to rotate it once to fit it into the hall, but they managed to work together as a group and get it done. 

Well done, AP HuGgers!!

A New Train is Rolling into Town

(more pictures available)

Last week Mrs. Freeze's seventh-grade English classes compared the writing process to building a train set (and of course, they actually got to play with trains!).

Some of their comparisons were, "Writing is like building a train set because you can change one piece, or one word in your sentence, and it can totally change the direction," and "Writing is like a train set because you can all get the same pieces and end up with a completely different track depending on what you want to create. When you write, you can create something unique even if you have the same topic as somebody else."

Comparing things—especially seemingly unlike things, is a great way to strengthen critical thinking skills.

Editor’s Note:  Mrs. Freeze recently came to us from Payson High.  SFJH is excited to have her here.

SFJH Golf Team Looks to Have Bright Future

Attributions: by Rillene NielsenEarlier this week, the Spanish Fork Junior High golf team found itself at Spanish Oaks Golf Course competing against other junior high teams in the district.   Prior to the game, this reporter caught a bit of Coach Nate Bartholomew's pregame pep-talk.  While the video doesn't show much of the in depth strategizing,  golfers were intent on listening to Coach's plans for the game.   Their preparation and hard work are paying dividends too.  SFJH finished only two shots behind the leader.   Congrats, Lobos!  Keep it up!
