Article: Mr. Rockwood Spotlight

Don’t worry if you haven’t seen him last year, he’s walking around the halls this year. If you don’t know who he is, well, you’ve come to the right place.

Mr. Rockwood was teaching at Payson High School for 14 years! That is crazy! And then, all of a sudden, he was offered an administrator job here at SJHS! He took it, of course, and now he’s here as the Dean of Students. He says, out of the 1 ½ years he’s been here, he loves Springville. Last year, he said the leadership was awesome and he wanted to stay, so he’s our Dean of Students. Other than working towards being a principal, he is also working towards his doctorate, and by next year, he’ll be known as Dr. Rockwood instead. Fancy, huh?

Have you ever played golf before? Well if you haven’t you are missing out. Golf is a fun, slow, calm sport, that includes strategy, math, and many other things. Golf is played by hitting the golf ball into the hole. You want to hit the ball the fewest times before hitting it into the hole. Whoever hits the ball into the hole first wins that hole. In the end  you want the lowest number possible,  golf isn’t like any other sport like football or basketball, where you want the highest points possible. So if you were playing a game and you had 15 points, and your friend had 20 points, you would have won.

Article: Madison Black Spotlight!

Madison Black, is an amazing girl who can make friends with basically anyone she meets. She can make anyone laugh with just a saying.

She is not one of those girls who can not make friends. She loves to make other people happy mostly her friends.

If Maddy could go anywhere in the world to help people, considering what has been happening lately, she said. “I would go to London because of all the attacks that are going on and I would try to help as much as possible anyway I could.”

Maddy is more classic than trendy because she is extremely unique. She likes to be different. While everyone are plain old cheerios, Maddy is a fruitloop.

Football. It’s a sport adored by many U.S. citizens and students who have a team representing their school. Here at SJHS, students love their football team members. Heck, even they think they’re a pretty good team. Talk about high confidence. Some people though, just don’t really care, and not because they’re rude or they hate the sport. Not at all, and like Tracy Segeberg, they just don’t care. Okay, back to the subject. What exactly is this article about? It’s about a few minor changes that can be done to our school with your help, like adding a girl’s football team. But how do some members and students feel about this subject?

The kneeling “problem” in the NFL, what about it?  For many americans the kneeling in the NFl has caused many differences in how people view the NFL and think about their flag. Many of the  NFL players at the end of the 2016-2017 year started kneeling for the flag to show their thoughts on what is happening in the U.S.A. today.  At the start of the 2017-2018 year it still continues to be a problem for the NFL.  Many believe that this year it is more of a political centered idea instead of an environmental idea.

Pornography isn’t really a subject you would expect at school, so it was a really big surprise to the students at SJHS when we had an assembly about it on Monday, October 2nd. The assembly's goal was to inform the students about the harmful effects of using porn. The assembly was to give the students more info on the subject and how we shouldn’t do it. Our students during the assembly seemed to be very calm, intrigued, and pretty willing to participate when the speaker asked. What were the students thoughts on it, though?
