The SFJHS PE/Health department was not quite ready to let summer slip away without one last swim party.

Many students and their families came and enjoyed the Spanish Fork Pool on Friday September 1st. We’re happy so many people came out.  It’s great to be active!  And it’s so fun!

A big “Thank you!” to the all those who helped out in this activity-- especially Brad Graham and all the employees at the Spanish Fork Water Park.

If you think this should become a yearly tradition, like this post on our Facebook page.

With Hurricane Harvey being such a heartbreaking disaster, the students wanted to reach out and help other elementary aged students in Texas because many have lost all their school supplies and schools. We want to come together as a school community to help school children affect by Hurricane Harvey.  To do this we are going to designate Wednesday September 6th as "Helping Hands for Harvey Day"! We are going to ask that students bring $1 and dress as a "Texan" (western/cowboy attire) on this day. All the money we collect will be sent to Texas to help school children in need. Fourth Graders will come around Wednesday afternoon to collect the donations from each classroom.  We hope you will encourage your students to get involved! Our goal as a school is to raise $1,000! Thanks for being involved!

Marissa Jackson, a 5th grader in Mrs. Crandall's class shared this essay about the new S.O.A.R theme:

At school we have a motto called S.O.A.R.  Each letter means different things.  S stands for Serve and Support.  O means Own Your Actions and Your Words.  A is Aim High and Achieve.  Last is R which is Respect.   We follow this S.O.A.R. motto in the learning areas, cafeteria, hallways, and in the bus, bike, and walking areas.  Each week we focus on a letter at a time.  This week we are focusing on letter S.  Then we will focus on the other letters for the next few weeks.  We are Rees Eagles and we S.O.A.R. high.
