In fifth grade, we have been learning about the causes of the American Revolution. In Miss Bird’s class, we have had an economy from the beginning of school where the kids have been earning tigers for their weekly pay and doing good work. The past couple of weeks, we have started having taxes and the students are beginning to hate this time. The taxes increase in frequency until they finally just get angry and “rebel” like the colonist did. These taxes are unfair like wearing jeans, blonde hair, having a sister. We also had some fees like a chair fee. This is a great visual for the kids to see how the colonist felt when the British were imposing all of the unfair taxes.

Did you know that the SFJHS Student Council and HOPE Squad went to the Utah Solutions Summit Conference? They learned how to help the big problem of opioid addiction. The special guests were Senator Mike Lee, Attorney General Sean Reyes, Alema Harrington and musicians Lexi Walker and Foreign Figures. There were also athletes such as UFC fighter Court McGee and collegiate wrestling champion Ben Kjar. They all gave great ideas to help overcome this dangerous addiction: stop the shame and show love and compassion, make note of 3 positive things about yourself each day, know you’re not alone, and reach out to make a connection to others around you to both get help and to give help.
Thank you Student Council and HOPE Squad for attending this awesome conference and for sharing what you learned!

These talented students entered the Fireman's coloring contest and won, each representing the winner from their grade levels. Because of their accomplishment, they had the opportunity to go the fire station and have lunch with the firefighters. They had so much fun and were so happy to go. What a great reward for some great work! Nice job Barnett leaders. Thank you to our firefighters who make this possible!
