Be A Leader

Park View Elementary News - Wed, 08/30/2017 - 9:56pm

Park View Elementary is rolling out a new theme this year. BE A LEADER! We believe that every student attending Park View is a leader. We are dedicating our efforts to help each student exhibit leadership traits using the seven habits. 

Let’s quickly explore the seven habits!

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive. You're in Charge: Success doesn’t just come and find you, you have to go out and get it. 
  • Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind. Have a Plan: Know what you want before you do it. 
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First. Work First, Then Play: Do it now. Sometimes ‘later’ becomes ‘never’.
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win. Everyone Can Win: People who win are those that turn their cant’s into cans, and their dreams into plans.
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. Listen Before You Talk: Before you act, LISTEN. Before you react, THINK. Before you spend, EARN. Before you criticize, WAIT. Before you quit, TRY. 
  • Habit 6: Synergize. Together Is Better: Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant. 
  • Habit 7: Sharpen The Saw. Balance Feels Best: Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. 

We encourage you as parents, guardians, and relatives to use the language of the seven habits at home and in your day to day activities. It’s easy! Instead of saying, “Jonny, thank you for putting your dishes in the sink.” Change your language to, “Jonny, thank you for being proactive and putting your dishes in the sink!”

We are confident that these habits will empower our students to be positive, responsible, and more effective in their everyday life! If you have any questions, feel free to ask your child’s teacher. 

Remember, BE A LEADER!

Playground Brightens Up

Mapleton Elementary News - Wed, 08/30/2017 - 5:24pm

Thanks to a local scout, Joseph Holman, our blacktop area received a much needed face lift. For his Eagle Scout project, Joseph raised funds for the stencil and paint to re-do our USA and Utah map. He also provided activity ideas that teachers can use with students to engage with the maps. Students have loved playing on them every day since school started. Thanks Joseph!

SFJHS now offers AP Human Geography, a class for 9th grade students who will prepare to take the AP Human Geography test at the end of the year. This college-level course is highly rigorous. In this course, students study systematic patterns and processes that shape human understanding. 

Tracee Jones says, “I took AP because I want to learn more about the people all over the world and why they act or say or do what they do.” Alissa Simmons says, “I want to push myself. I have to admit, it has been challenging.” McCade Davis says, “It’s going to be a challenge, especially with other activities going on in my life, but I think I’m up for the challenge.”

This class is taught by Ms. Terry. It’s an exciting opportunity for our students here at SFJHS. Good luck to our first ever class of AP Human Geography!
