Learning to Ice Skate

On January 6, 2016, the kids in P.E. had the choice to go on an ice skating field trip to the Seven Peaks Ice Arena and then to the Provo Towne Center to eat lunch afterward. The field trip cost fifteen dollars and the junior high students got a pair of rental skates and skated for several hours. Ms. Gausher, Mr. Parker, and Mr. Chambers, SJHS P.E. teachers, went on the field trip with the students and skated a little bit too.

Who’s Hungry to Learn About the Lunch Ladies?

What is your favorite place in the school? For many students it is the cafeteria, and our hard working lunch ladies make it even more awesome. 

Rachell Chapple, the lunchroom manager, said, “Being part of the cafeteria staff is like having nine sisters. We work hard and we have to work rather quick, but in and among all of the craziness we have a lot of fun.” According to Debbie Messick, the lunch clerk, the best thing about it is that it is fun and enjoyable, and they like to prepare the food and see the smiling faces of the students.

Ninth graders at SJHS had a chance to take English honors, an advanced English class this year. In order to take the class, students had to complete a summer reading assignment and turn it in on the first week of school. 

“Honors English is for students who can read and write at a high level, but who are also very hardworking and responsible,” said Ms. Dunn, the English honors teacher at SJHS.
