Fourth graders walked up to the Salem City Cemetery last week to participate in several learning activities. Students used subtraction to solve and find how many years people lived, looked for people who had served in the military, and also tried to find the person who was born the earliest in history.  

Students observed the plants and animals that they saw, as well as the weather and clouds.  They also looked for unique designs on headstones and did pencil rubbings.

Finally, students wrote about the thoughts and feelings they had while visiting the cemetery. It was a beautiful day to not only learn, but to honor those who are laid to rest in our city's cemetery.

Tara Jacobson is new to Springville High and works in our finance office.  She enjoys exploring mountain trails, avoiding housework, keeping the high record at Whack-a-Mole, and riding her semi-recumbent senior citizen’s bicycle. Jacobson has been married for 16 years and has three children, her oldest to be joining us here at SHS next Fall.

Jacobson graduated from Southern Utah University in 1997, majoring in Spanish.

“My Spanish is rusty, so come practice with me if you speak Spanish,” said Jacobson.

The most unusual job Tara worked at was in college.  She would gather juniper berries in the wilderness outside of Cedar City for a liquid herbal extract manufacturer.

If there was any place in the world she could go, it would be England. She also likes the idea that she doesn't need to learn a new language to go to a foreign country.

If you have the opportunity, make sure get to know our wonderful new financial secretary.

ABC Celebration in Kindergarten!!  Miss Mellor's Kindergarten kids had a "poppin" good time celebrating our first trip through the ABC's.  Miss Mellor dumped a huge bag of balloons on the carpet and each student got to pop a balloon.  Hiding inside that balloon  was a letter of the alphabet.   As soon as we popped all the balloons and found all the letters we put them in ABC order on our chart.

Girls Tennis Team player Savannah Cochran said, “I was in the region tournament, and I felt like our team played great.”

Katie Petersen plays 2nd Varsity Doubles. She responds on how she wants to improve her skills.

Petersen said, “Probably my round game and maybe signals.”

“As a team we are doing super well; we took region and went to state,” said Petersen.

Petersen commented on why she likes playing tennis, “I chose tennis because I quit soccer, and my dad had a lot of influence on me; so, I chose tennis.  I just like playing tennis; it's not just a team spot, but also a personal spot as well.  I think it’s a lot of fun.”

Hana Miyasaki, who plays doubles on the JV Girls Tennis team, played in the JV tournament. Miyasaki is always improving her game.

“Tennis is a mental game, so just focusing on staying positive is what I would like to improve,” said Miyasaki.

Miyasaki commented that the team did very well this year, and she did much better this year than she did last year.

Miyasaki decided to play tennis because, “I didn’t have anything else to do at the time. I enjoy tennis because it’s fun and competitive,” said Miyasaki.

Girls Tennis Team Members:
Savannah Cochran, Alexi Corfield, Kelsey Corfield, Lydia Felix, Brooke Galbraith, Amanda Gardner, Hannah Geary, Emma Haven, Brianna Hardy, Hana Miyasaki, Maren Murphy, Addison Nielson, Katie Petersen, Elizabeth Rex, Naomi Rollins, Olivia Smith, Samantha Smith, Brinley Southam, Kelsey Sumsion, Jane Sweat, AnnaBeth Templeman, Emma Templeman, Chloe Welch, and Christine White
