9th grade learns about growth mindset

This year in ninth grade, teachers are teaching students about the growth mindset! The growth mindset has a lot to do with grit. It’s teaching us that even if we’re bad at something now, there’s always room to grow and become better! I love this because it helps me a lot when I’m doing my homework. When I’m sick of doing homework, I just remember grit and it helps me through. We do a lot of assignments on the growth mindset. Learning to not have a fixed mindset. I love this!

Skyhawks vs. Dons

Last Friday was the Salem Skyhawks V.S. Spanish Fork Dons. It was a really good game because they're rivals so it will be a good game no matter what. At the football games the junior high kids hang out and have a really good time with one another. And all the elementary kids play football or boys chase girls and have a good time as well. There’s a snack shack that has really good food, so you don’t have to worry about that. Football games are really important to me because the whole community comes together to a good game of football. Coming into this game I thought we were going to win but… We lost 38 to 30 it was a pretty good game but we totally gave them the win. Although Skyhawks didn’t win we all came together. I love football and i especially love living in salem.

8th grade throws themselves into the world of science discovery!

Recently, Mr. Bell’s 8th grade science class began to do their experiments/labs. They studied chemical and physical properties of household ingredients, such as flour, sugar, sodium, etc. They did a variety of tests ranging from seeing how they reacted to peroxide or iodine, to putting them over an open flame and seeing the result. He then gave them a mixture of the substances, and told them to figure out what ingredients were in it. The ending goal was to use their knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of each of the substances to figure out what ingredients were in the mixture. And they totally rocked the safety goggles too! :)

Girls tennis plays hard against Diamond Fork

Fri, 09/22/2017 - 12:28pm
Attributions: Diamond Fork Jr High invaded Spartan country on Tues, Sept 19, but they were repulsed by our varsity and JV tennis teams.  The varsity squad took four of five matches, only dropping the #2 doubles spot.  The JV team swept all five matches.  The coaches say that the girls will have to keep working hard and not let the win get to their heads because stiffer challenges remain, but they are proud of the team and happy with their performance.   Match of the day goes to Emilee Nicholls who played very well against a hard hitting opponent in the #2 singles spot.

On Tuesday, September 12th, the Salem Jr. High golf team had their 2nd meet at spanish oaks.  Here are our top 4 scores,

  • Logan Blanchard with 43,
  • Jordan Hartvigsen with 45,
  • Ty Johnson with 46,
  • Jarrett Parkinson with 47.

Head Coach Adam Roberts commented that they played good, but they left a couple of strokes out there. He believes that the best is yet to come.

Spanish Oaks golf course is a fun and relaxing course, and the Pros up there try to keep it a friendly environment. In the picture we have a shot of hole number 3, and if you squint, you can see the river that they have to play over. It is a par 5.

Overall, we played well, and we are excited for the meets to come.
