On November 21, 2014 the SJHS second Super Knight Assembly happened. The Super Knight Assembly’s purpose is to spotlight students for doing the school basics which are: being responsible citizens, successful learners, and effective communicators. 

According to Mr. VanAusdal, the principal  at SJHS, we have Super Knight Assemblies to celebrate the good things students do. The Super Knight Assembly is centered around the school basics. Teachers nominate students that do those things, then the faculty votes on the selected students-one boy and one girl from each grade.

On November 24, 2014 the Agriculture Science (Ag science) class here at SJHS journeyed to Ottesen Dairy in a quest to discover the sciences behind dairy production.  According to Mrs. Thomas, the Ag science teacher, the dairy is owned by her husband’s family.     

Also according to Mrs. Thomas, after the class arrived at the dairy students visited different stations.  “Some examples,” she said, “of these stations are: the milking barn, baby calves, and everyone’s favorite- the milk tank.  At each of these stations we discuss what science is occurring.”
