Bust a move. Feel the groove.
Students attending Drama Club during Pack Time like to practice their choreography skills using videos from the “Just Dance” video game. Ms. Holley says the videos are available on YouTube and are great exercise—not to mention a lot of fun.
On February 21, the seventh-grade orchestra went on a large scale tour around several elementary schools to try and convince the students of those schools to join the SFJHS Orchestra. The tour consisted of four visits to elementary schools and a stop for lunch in between. At each elementary school, the orchestra performed several songs and some solo performances by some of the students in the orchestra. There were also several exciting and entertaining moments including inflatable dinosaurs and sharks, a bubble machine, and more! During the lunch break, students were allowed to eat at several establishments or bring their own lunch. This excursion was quite an exciting event!
Ryan Flake has recently been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the state level competition of the 2018 National Geographic State Bee. The contest will be held at Jordan Commons Megaplex in Sandy on Friday, April 6, 2018.
This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 30th year. School Bees were held in schools with 4th through 8th grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. Ryan’s test results qualified him to be among the 100 top-scoring students within our state to compete in the State Bee.
If Ryan wins the state level competition, he will receive $200, the National Geographic Concise Atlas of the World, 4th Edition and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent our state in the National Geographic Bee Championship to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 20-23, 2018. He would then have a chance to compete for a $50,000 college scholarship. Best wishes and good luck to our school champion, Ryan Flake, in our state National Geographic Bee competition!
