 Madison Parker, a 7th grade student here at Spanish Fork Jr. High School, is a state swim champ. I caught up with her recently, and this is what she had to say about her experiences.

 “Swim is one of the most popular sports in the Olympics. Even though it isn’t very common in  Utah, I still do it.

 “I started when I was eight years old. There was a city team that swam down at the Spanish Fork pool. I swam there for one summer then decided I want to join club. I swim in Provo now on the Utah Valley Rays Aquatic Team. I am almost finishing my 5th year of swimming.

 “I have competitions/meets whenever we are able to. I have little meets here and there, but normally my big meets are either in July or August [and sometimes] in December or March. My meets are everywhere across Utah. I have been to Hawaii, Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas for national swim meets.

 “From the beginning of school to the end I practice 2 ½ hours at the Provo Rec Center, six days a week. In the summer, I practice from 5 a.m. to 7:30 a.m., and in the afternoon, I swim from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. So, I am swimming two times a day until Saturday, when I swim from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., but don’t go back in the afternoon.

 “My goal with swimming is the Olympics; right now I am working for Junior Nationals times and Olympic Trials. By 2020 my goal is to attend the Olympic Trials. By 2024 I want to be in college on scholarship and attend the Olympics. Those are most of my long-term goals. My short-term goal is to final at Sectionals which is in Texas in March, and to also get my Junior Nationals times as well.

 “I love swimming and it has taught me to push my limits, that I am so much stronger than I thought, and hard work pays off! It is hard but it’s what I love to do.”

 Congratulations, Maddy, and see you in the Olympics!

Kennedy Ercanbrack – 9TH GRADE

Mt. Nebo Jr. High School

Kennedy Ercanbrack, an 8th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, was nominated to receive the Payson City Mayor’s Award for the month of January. Kennedy is a kind and considerate student at MNJHS.  We are thrilled to have her receive this award from the Payson City Council.

Here's what some of Kennedy's teachers had to say about her:

Kennedy is a smart, resourceful student. Kennedy immediately grasps concepts with ease and always provides thoughtful insights to class discussions. She is an accomplished student and a dedicated friend to her classmates. It is a pleasure to have her in class.

Kennedy has a plethora of great qualities: she is kind, intelligent, friendly to everyone, and she demonstrates great leadership. But the most impressive trait she demonstrates is that she is fearless.  In choir it is an intimidating experience to audition for a solo. And, even though she is so nervous she sometimes shakes, she has never missed an opportunity to audition. It is an impressive use of courage.  I am proud to have her in Women's choir.

Kennedy has a scientific mind.  She loves to push questions to explore the world around her.  Her persistence and determination to gain answers to her intriguing questions serves her and others around her well. Kennedy's ideas are inspirational. It is a pleasure to be her teacher.

Kennedy never shies away from responsibility. If she sees something that needs to be done, she does it without being asked. She always takes the lead when presented with a task. Not only is Kennedy a good academic student, but she is kind, thoughtful, understanding and fun to be around.  She is willing to learn and teach others. Kennedy is an excellent example of the ROAR of Mt. Nebo Jr. High.   Congratulations Kennedy!

Ryan Flake, an eighth-grade student at Spanish Fork Jr. High, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on December 15, 2017, and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.  The school-level Bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 30th annual National Geographic Bee.  In order to participate in the Bee, eighth graders had to pass a written test with a high qualifying score.  There were only 30 seats available for the entire eighth grade so being able to participate is an accomplishment in and of itself.  The following students qualified and participated in the school competition:

Connor Gates, Laycee Bills, Carter Cook, Emmie Olson, McKay Shaffer, Gwen Beagley, Sydney Chipman, Jones Lewis, Questin Francis, Brian Gunyan, Wyatt Hughes-Millman, Brenner Shepherd, Natalie Olsen, Zac Dart, Samuel Clements, Ellie Maughan, Trevor Stephens, Kate Jones, Xander Lacefield, Kelsey Mansfield, Cole Gwilliam, Andrew Porter, Ryan Flake, Ashton Szalkowski, and Kade Baum

Ryan Flake finished the competition in First Place with Wyatt Hughes-Millman finishing in Second Place and Sydney Chipman finishing in Third Place.  Congratulations to our school finalists! 

 School winners around the country, including Ryan, will now take a written test to be eligible to compete in the state Geographic Bee on April 6, 2018.  State winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Geographic Bee and a chance for a $50,000 scholarship.

Fifth grade began a Kindness Challenge in December, and the challenge continues this month. As students decorated the hallway in the swamp, each student had their own paper stocking hanging on the wall. Before Christmas break students were able to write small kind notes and stuff them in each other’s stockings. They are trying to find some small or different ways to spread kindness to others. What a great way to inspire each other help everyone feel important!

Chemistry Teaches Synergy in 5th Grade

Discovery Gateway came to Cherry Creek Elementary to show our 5th graders the proper way to mix chemicals without blowing anything up or destroying themselves. When chemicals synergize, they create something different as they work together, just like what Habit #6 teaches us. Students were able to mix chemicals together and practice what they learned through personal trial and error.

They really enjoy the presentation that the lab scientist gave. They also enjoyed working with one another and synergizing to bring about a chemical reaction.
