“There were clothing parts all over from college students and we were looking at all of the ideas they had created and portrayed in their designs.” These are the thoughts of the few lucky students who were able to go on a field trip with Ms. Bird to SLCC. Salt Lake Community College is one of the only colleges in Utah to have an appeal fashion design course, which is one of their reasons for going. Another reason is that Ms. Bird found her love for sewing from her mother who is deceased and this field trip was a way of remembering and paying tribute to her.
The end of the school year is coming very close. Every student is very excited to leave school and enjoy the freedom of summer. But every student is going to miss their favorite teachers and friends.

The no tardy parties is a tradition here at our school. (A party for those who get no tardies.) SJHS held their third term no tardy party on April 23rd. The activity they chose to take kids on was the CLAS ropes course. As the title implies the requirements to attend the no tardy party is to have no tardies or absences for the term. Kayla Jackson, one of the students who went, said that earning her invitation was easy, her advice, “Just go to class.” Kaden Paxton says to take his advice and just be aware of the time.
Poetry is important to our school and important in life to broaden our perception of life. Poetry is a good chance to get to know other people and if your good enough, you can win scholarships or free money! The Poetry Slam is a event where students can show off a poem they wrote or where they can recite a poem that was written by someone else.
This years track season has started off in a surge for the finish. On March fourteenth was when the track season started off for all those interested in being involved. One problem a lot of students had this year was that they did not turn in their physical and could not participate until they had. The first meet for track is on the Friday before Spring Break. That would make it March thirtieth at Payson High School against the Junior High of Payson.
We have had the privilege of having two authors come and visit our school.

Red vines, lifesavers, tic tacs, gum, heroes, hats, be red, be you, twins, and touring. This is the life of the students of Springville Junior High the last week of March. The students had the opportunity to be part of Hope Week, which is a week that the Hope Squad used to display their beliefs on how life should be for students. Each day’s dress up represented something that the Hope Squad felt should be brought to the attention of all the people who attend the school.
From todays date, there are only 20 days of school left. The end of school is near, and that means summer is right around the corner. We are still in school though, which means we still have more work to do before we can check out of school. There is Sage Testing, which requires preparation before we can start. But we are almost there.
