There are certain triggers that always wind children up: rain clouds, wind, a close game in PE, and – the week before Halloween. The closer the calendar gets to that day, the more bonkers children become.

To be perfectly fair, it’s not completely the kids’ fault that they can’t stay focused. Teachers are partly to blame. We read aloud Halloween stories, draw haunted houses, sing “pumpkin carols,” and graph candy corn.

On Halloween, we will begin our morning with a Halloween parade. Into the school on Halloween morning will walk Superman, a clown, an angel, some devils, the Disney princesses will be present, maybe an astronaut, a pack of Ninjas, Darth Vader, and possibly some pirates.

We will be parading outside this year. We invite you to drop your children off, find a parking stall, pull out the lawn chairs, choose a good seat on the parade route and stay for the “Monster March.” Students will assemble in their classroom and after the morning bell and announcements, we will begin our parade. The ghouls and goblins will exit from the school, parade around the sports park, re-enter and parade through the halls; dropping each class off at their classroom door.

Afternoon Kindergarten will begin their parade at 12:30 p.m. They will parade around the Kindergarten Playground.

Come watch the fun!

Check out spoooooky Riverview RAM scarecrow this Halloween season. Our entry in the Spanish Fork City Scarecrow Contest is directly in front of Central Bank on Main Street. Don’t forget to vote for our scarecrow. The winner gets $100 and bragging rights!

Monet Jorgenson is again a published poet

Springville High School News - Sun, 10/15/2017 - 9:36pm

Springville High student, Monet Jorgenson (a Junior), will soon have another literary work published.  Her latest publish piece is titled ​"Girl" and it's a dictionary poem. Dictionary poems follow the format of stating a word (the title of the piece) and then giving two or three "definitions", which act as the main body of the poem.

“I don't quite know what inspired me, but the message I was trying to get across was that girls have power. They are forces of nature, not to be messed with,” said Jorgenson.

Her poem will appear in the 2018 Spring Issue #3 of THAT Literary Review, an online literary magazine.

“I intend, in the future, to keep writing. I don't have any specific plans, but I hope to continue writing until the day I die,” said Jorgenson.

​Jorgenson said, “I'd give others the advice to never stop writing. Your work will get rejected, people will fail to see your genius, but you have to keep writing until you find a publisher who sees your work for what it is--Art.”​

Ms. B, our school counselor, has been teaching us about being proactive vs. reactive. During Lighthouse Leaders we learned what it means to be proactive, and that sometimes we have the choice in a situation to be proactive or reactive. Her lesson was followed up the following week during our Leadership Sendoff with what being reactive can look like. What a great obeject lesson with Diet Coke and Mentos. Thank you, Ms. B!
