If you are in eighth grade and singing is your passion, then you should definitely take Master Singers. Master Singers is the ninth grade choir class at SJHS. You get to learn songs, sight read, sing in harmony, and learn all about music. Also, if you take Master Singers, you will have a better chance at getting into high school choir programs. Tristan McAfee, a Master Singer, said that she likes choir because she can hang out with fellow singers.   

“I love Master Singers!” said Benton Aegerter, another Master Singer, “It’s fun to be able to sing and socialize in class.”

These past few weeks Mr. Shields, a history teacher, has been busy. He has had to teach his eighth grade history students all the names of the states. To help them with that, they played a little game quite similar to ‘‘Around the World’’. Each student would take a turn standing up to compete against another student while Mr. Shields pointed to a state shown on the projector. Whoever said the name of the state first, won and moved on. This game lasted for about one week. Mr. Shields finally narrowed it down to his “sweet sixteen,” as there were only sixteen contestants left.

“The journalism class was created to give students real-life writing opportunities and to inform people about what goes on at Springville Junior High School.  Journalism is a unique class where students have an audience of more than just their teacher and classmates; the audience is all of the students and parents at our school and anyone who visits our school website.  It is a great opportunity for our students to get published at such a young age,” said Ms. Miley, an assistant principal and former journalism teacher.

The hard working ladies in the cafeteria are absolutely amazing! They work especially hard to put breakfast and lunch on the table for the kids at Springville Jr. High. “The best part is feeding the hungry children,” said Mrs. Messick, the SJHS lunch secretary. 

The ladies begin to make lunch at 8:00 a.m and have it ready by lunch time. They also have a food delivery at 5:30 a.m every other day.

Mrs. Chappell, the manager, has been here for 10 years and likes her job. She enjoys working with all of the great ladies.
