Another Spanish Fork Junior Student Gets Published

Emily Wessman is a writer. When she heard about the opportunity to submit a poem to UVU's Write Outside Yourself Journal, she submitted a poem called "Illuminate the Forgotten." This beautifully written poem met the criteria of "Tales Throughout TIme," "exploring or reinventing different eras in history or presenting possible futures."

 Emily's poem was one of only two accepted for publication. Middle and high school students from across the state of Utah were all invited to submit, so this is a great honor for Emily to have her poem selected to be published.  

Emily will be honored at a launch party this summer, and her poem will be published in Volume V of the print and online journal. You don't have to wait for the published version, however. Simply ask, and Emily will be happy to let you read her poem. Congratulations, Emily, and keep on writing!

Mrs. Kelly’s FACS students were given an opportunity in their child development unit to see preschoolers learn. She separated them into seven groups. Each group was then assigned a topic that corresponded with the things they were learning about; the activity they planned was based on that topic. The greeting group made bunny shaped name tags. The large motor group’s activity was a bean bag toss. The small motor group let the preschoolers play with Play Dough. The snack group made little crabs with crackers, pretzel sticks, and cheese. The reading group had the kids sit down and listen to “If you Bring a Pig to a Party” and “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?” The math and science group enjoyed helping the preschoolers make oblik. The art group set up pictures of flowers, bunnies, and cats for them to enjoy painting. Mrs. Kelly taught the kids the song “Five Little-Speckled Frogs.” The last activity that the preschoolers did before they left was a freeze dance.

Strawberry DNA

On April 13 Ms. Warren’s class looked at strawberry DNA. It was a part of learning about Watson and Crick and their discovery of DNA. We learned why it would be important to know this in agriculture, specifically when we were learning about plant, animal, and soil scientists. “It was so cool! I loved being able to see the DNA strands,” a student said. Others agreed that the DNA strands were interesting and fun to see. “It was interesting with a strawberry. What do you think would happen if I tried this with an orange!” a student mentioned.

“The experiment was fun, and I got a bracelet out of it!” a student said. I think the whole class could conclude that it was a fun day in CTE.

As we begin our end of year testing the counseling office has put together a list of tips to help our students and test time go smoothly:

  • Get a Good Night's Sleep-This gives your brain time to recharge and remember what you've learned.
  • Eat a good, light breakfast-This will help with energy and concentration, also drink lots of WATER!
  • Stay Calm-When you sit down to do your exam, remember to relax and slow your breathing.
  • Don't Rush-Work through the exam at a comfortable pace and read each question more than once if needed.
  • Trust Yourself-Be postive and believe in yourself, you can do this!
