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.

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.

Lunch time, a very sacred time for students. A break in between school to devour food and hang out with friends. You might get a school lunch, and you might bring a home lunch, but lunch should be a great time for you no matter what. There are two different lunches, first lunch gets their lunch break after fourth period, and second lunch has theirs after fifth period, and both are for relieving hungry students.
