Here at SJHS we are divided by age and learning skill into seventh, eighth and ninth grade, or page, squire, and knight.  With each grade comes new experiences, but to really understand the grade one must get to know the students in it.

The Springville Junior High students were privileged with a lot of new elective classes this year. The animal science class was one of these. Animal science is seventh period. There is something unique about this class. It has nine class pets! They have two guinea pigs, Uggs and Buddy, two hamsters, Cinnamon and Hulk, and a betta fish, named Schmitty.

The kids on the Springville Cross Country Team are absolutely amazing! About 32 kids signed up to run this hard, exhausting, fun event. 

The team has practice everyday except on the weekends and when they have meets. They have one meet a week. They have to run a mile and a half at every meet.

“I love Cross Country; it gets all my stress out and feels good,” said Kaitlyn Gee, a member of the Cross Country team. “The practices are hard and planned out, but still fun. Mondays and Wednesdays are especially hard,” said Kaitlyn Gee.

An Assembly That SJHS Will Not Forget

On Friday, September 5, the students all headed down to the cafetorium. There was a special guest speaker coming to our school to talk about defeating bullying. This special speaker turned out to be more than we thought he would be.  He taught with positive words and examples. His name was Josh Drean.

Josh started out by teaching students the rules of being a mascot. When he was younger he was Cosmo for BYU. He showed a few clips and he shared a few stories about his life as a mascot, and mistakes he had made. He then called up three students to the stage.
