Blendtec Donation to Springville Junior High School

Marin Rosenberg, SJHS Staff Writer

Recently, the company Blendtec donated eight blenders to the Springville Junior High School’s foods class. But they didn’t donate to just Springville Junior High, they donated blenders to all the secondary schools in Utah County. Caitlin Dinkle, ninth grade student at SJHS, and her dad, Ken, brought them in one day and now the foods class uses them almost everyday. On October sixth, the Blendtec Company came and did a demonstration at SJHS and all the students got to learn about the company and the blenders too.

Reading for the Record

Jesse Olsen

On Thursday October 7, students at Park View Elementary helped set a world record in reading. Students participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record program by being just a few of over 2 million students to read Llama Llama, Red Pajama at school that day. The students were lucky enough to have one of the school board members, Christine Riley, come and read the story to them. The kids dressed in red to celebrate (some even wore red pajamas), and they loved reading with Mrs. Riley.
