A New Train is Rolling into Town

Last week Mrs. Freeze's seventh-grade English classes compared the writing process to building a train set (and of course, they actually got to play with trains!).

Some of their comparisons were, "Writing is like building a train set because you can change one piece, or one word in your sentence, and it can totally change the direction," and "Writing is like a train set because you can all get the same pieces and end up with a completely different track depending on what you want to create. When you write, you can create something unique even if you have the same topic as somebody else."

Comparing things—especially seemingly unlike things, is a great way to strengthen critical thinking skills.

Editor’s Note:  Mrs. Freeze recently came to us from Payson High.  SFJH is excited to have her here.

I grew up in Provo Utah. I am the middle child out of 3 girls. Growing up my mom, dad, sisters and I loved to watch movies, play games, go camping and travel. I have almost been married for a year now to my best friend Peter Haines. I got married in November of 2018, in Salt Lake city. One of my favorite things, is being an aunt to my 2 nephews who are only 6 days apart from each other. I love watching them grow and learn new things. 

This summer my husband, brother & sister in-law, nephew and I were able to take a trip to South Dakota to Mt. Rushmore. It was one of the coolest things I've seen. I was particularly excited to go there because this year I get to teach United States history to my 5th graders. Some of my favorite things in this world are my husband, family, reading, my HUGE book collection, watching movies, Gilmore Girls, Dr. Pepper, Sodalicious, warm chocolate chip cookies, sweatshirts, campfires, thunderstorms, and coloring.

The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America held their first ‘Waffle Wednesday’ of the year on Sep. 6, 2018 where they introduced their leadership, the activities that were coming up and encouraged the waffle eaters to join the club. Mrs. Heaps, coordinator for the organization, said, “Get your friends and join together, that’s what makes it fun.” Additionally, students that pay the $20 dues before Monday the 11th, get to go on a field trip to the State fair, and get a membership shirt.

During the meeting, Danielle Wilkinson explained how the club organizes different events including Sadie Hawkins and Red Ribbon week. They need help with setting up, decorating and planning. Any student, not just FCCLA members, can sign up to help for the events, all you have to do is talk to Mrs. Heaps or an officer.

This years officers are: Clara Beddoes, Kassie Neal, Makell Loveless, Katelyn Connelly and Danielle Wilkinson. The officers and Mrs. Heaps highly encourage students to join FCCLA, not only to get involved, but also to “promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education.”
