Students at Diamond Fork Junior created a banner and signed messages of support for our students who are still under mandatory evacuation. Everyone here at Salem Junior is so appreciative of what these students have done to show our kids that they care. These kind words and messages of support have helped boost the spirits of our students.

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.
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.
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.
We had a great day at Gladstan golf course yesterday. Some great golfers put forth their best efforts and showed their Spartan pride. Please congratulate with me our 2018 jr high golf team.
Thanks to everyone who tried out, our volunteers that helped and the golf course for hosting us. Let’s have a great season.
It's school picture time!
Come ready for school pictures on Wednesday, August 22, 2018! Picture packets are being sent home with students the first day of school. If you would like to purchase pictures, please ask your student for the packet. Every student will have their picture taken for the yearbook, whether pictures are purchased or not.
Remember . . . You're never fully dressed without a SMILE! :)
