Article:  Topaz Field trip

On November 14, the 8th graders at SJHS had the opportunity to go on a field trip to the Topaz Museum in Delta and learn about the Japanese Internment Camps that were in operation during WW2.

Many of the eighth graders enjoyed learning about what life was like for the Americans of Japanese ancestry.

“It was really moving to see what they went through.” Chloe Sleight states, as she talks about her experience.

“ My favorite part of the field trip was going inside of the barracks,” Laurissa Blakey explains, “They didn’t have insulation so it got so cold and hot all the time. It was just really sad to see what they had to go through.”

Article: Where will College take you?

The students at Springville Junior High are not completely aware of the fun waiting for them when they came to school on College week.  The counselors had prepared activities for the students to do as the week progressed.  Many activities excited the students and got them in the College mood.  One of the things that the students learned form college week was that  people who go to college and graduate get paid 0.9 million more than those that do not go to college and graduate.  At the beginning of the week they had us stay in our third period class and talk about college and we asked our teachers any questions we had.

Article: The Talent Show: Behind the Curtain and More.

 

Ah the talent show! One of the biggest, if not, the biggest event at SJHS. An opportunity for students to show the school what tricks they’ve got up their sleeves, or simply a burning passion for music and the arts. It looks fun to be a part of, and many of these acts shock us because they come from the people who tend to be outcasts. But what lies behind the curtain of confidence these people drape over their faces when performing? If you keep reading, you’ll get an idea as to how these performers really feel. Before we get into what the contestants feel, let’s listen to what the audience has to say.
