Dear SJHS parents and guardians:

I hope you and your families had a great spring break! It’s hard to believe there are only seven weeks left in the school year. Our spring athletics are in full swing with our first track meet this week and our first tennis match next week. We’re excited for our students to participate in these outdoor sports! I’m also including information about end-of-year assessments in this email. Our assessments will run from April 26 through May 14.

Upcoming events:

  • Wednesday, April 14: Mrs. Cristy Bird, Springville Junior High’s teacher of the year, will be recognized in board meeting. Congratulations Mrs. Bird!
  • Friday, April 16: Track vs. Salem Junior High at Springville High School at 2:00
  • Tuesday, April 20: Tennis vs. Spanish Fork Junior High at Springville Junior High at 3:30
  • Thursday, April 22: Tennis vs. Salem Junior High at Springville High School at 3:30
  • Friday, April 23: Track vs. Spanish Fork and Payson Junior Highs at Springville High School at 2:00

State End-of-Year Assessment Info:

Our 7th and 8th graders will take the Readiness Improvement Success Empowerment (RISE) assessment this year. The RISE is a computer adaptive criterion referenced assessment system that includes summative tests for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Writing. All 7th and 8th grade testing will be done in English, science, and math classes on the following dates:

  • English RISE for 8th grade: April 26 - 30
  • English RISE for 7th grade: April 28 - 30
  • Science RISE for 7th and 8th grade: May 5 - 7
  • Math RISE for 7th and 8th grade: May 10 - 12

Our 9th graders will take the Utah Aspire Plus assessment this year. The Utah Aspire Plus assessment is a hybrid of ACT Aspire and Utah Core test items. It is a computer delivered, fixed form end-of-grade-level high school assessment for students in 9th and 10th grade. Utah Aspire Plus includes four subtests: reading, English, mathematics, and science. Students receive predicted ACT score ranges for each subtest, as well as an overall predicted composite ACT score range. The assessment also provides proficiency scores for end-of-grade-level expectations for 9th and 10th grade students in English language arts, mathematics, and science.

The Utah Aspire Plus is a timed test, so students will complete the test in four sessions (one session for each subtest) over two school days (May 3 and 4). One session will be before lunch, and the second session will be after lunch. Students will be assigned to classrooms alphabetically by their last names. Administering the test according to this schedule more closely matches how the ACT is administered once students are in high school.

Many 9th graders in our dual language immersion programs will also be taking AP exams this spring. The AP Spanish test is on May 11, and AP Chinese test is on May 14.

Good luck to all of our students as they participate in the end-of-level assessments this year! We are confident in their abilities and know they will do a great job.

Have a great week,
Tiffanie Miley

Estimados padres y tutores de SJHS:

¡Espero que ustedes y sus familias hayan tenido unas excelentes vacaciones de primavera! Es difícil creer que solo quedan siete semanas en el año escolar. Nuestro atletismo de primavera está en pleno apogeo con nuestro primer encuentro de pista esta semana y nuestro primer partido de tenis la próxima semana. ¡Estamos emocionados de que nuestros estudiantes participen en estos deportes al aire libre! También incluyo información sobre las evaluaciones de fin de año en este correo electrónico. Nuestras evaluaciones se ejecutarán a partir del 26 de abril al 14 de mayo

Próximos Eventos:

  • Miércoles, 14 de abril: la señora Cristy, Bird profesor del año de Springville Secundaria, serán reconocidos en reunión de la junta. ¡Felicitaciones Sra. Bird!
  • Viernes, 16 de abril: Pista contra Salem Junior High en Springville High School a las 2:00
  • Martes, 20 de abril: Tenis contra Spanish Fork Junior High en Springville Junior High a las 3:30
  • Jueves, 22 de abril: Tenis contra Salem Junior High en Springville High School a las 3:30
  • Viernes, 23 de abril: Pista contra Spanish Fork y Payson Junior Highs en Springville High School a las 2:00

Fin de año Información de la prueba:

Nuestros estudiantes de 7° y 8° grado tomarán el Empoderamiento para el éxito en la mejora de la preparación (RISE) evaluación este año. El RISE es un sistema de evaluación con referencia a un criterio adaptativo por computadora que incluye pruebas sumativas para Artes del Lenguaje Inglés, Matemáticas, Ciencias y Escritura. Todas las pruebas de séptimo y octavo grado se realizarán en las clases de inglés, ciencias y matemáticas en las siguientes fechas:

  • RISE de inglés para el octavo grado: 26 al 30 de abril
  • RISE de inglés para el séptimo grado: 28 al 30 de abril
  • RISE de ciencia para el séptimo y octavo grado: 5 - 7 de mayo
  • RISE de matemáticas para los grados 7 y 8: 10 - 12 de mayo

Nuestros estudiantes de 9º grado tomarán la Utah Aspire Plus este año. La evaluación Utah Aspire Plus es un híbrido de los elementos de las pruebas ACT Aspire y Utah Core. Es una evaluación de la escuela secundaria de fin de grado de forma fija entregada por computadora para estudiantes de 9º y 10º grado. Utah Aspire Plus incluye cuatro subpruebas: lectura, inglés, matemáticas y ciencias. Los estudiantes reciben rangos de puntaje de ACT previstos para cada subprueba, así como un rango de puntaje de ACT global pronosticado. La evaluación también proporciona puntajes de competencia para las expectativas de fin de grado para estudiantes de noveno y décimo grado en artes del lenguaje inglés, matemáticas y ciencias.

Utah Aspire Plus es una prueba cronometrada, por lo que los estudiantes completarán la prueba en cuatro sesiones (una sesión para cada subprueba) durante dos días escolares (3 y 4 de mayo). Una sesión será antes del almuerzo y la segunda sesión será después del almuerzo. Los estudiantes serán asignados a las aulas alfabéticamente por sus apellidos. La administración de la prueba de acuerdo con este horario se asemeja más a la forma en que se administra el ACT una vez que los estudiantes están en la escuela secundaria.

Muchos estudiantes de noveno grado en nuestros programas de inmersión en dos idiomas también tomarán exámenes AP esta primavera. La prueba de español AP es el 11 de mayo y la prueba de chino AP es el 14 de mayo.

¡Buena suerte a todos nuestros estudiantes ya que participan en las evaluaciones de fin de nivel este año! Confiamos en sus habilidades y sabemos que harán un gran trabajo.

Que tengas una gran semana,
Tiffanie Miley

Dear Nebo District families:

Most of you are likely aware that the Utah Legislature recently passed a law that effectively ends the state-wide face mask mandate in Utah on April 10. However, you may not be aware that the “the mask requirements for K-12 schools REMAINS IN PLACE until June 15. Additionally, local officials, like a school board, do NOT have legal authority to end the school mask requirement before this date.”

Thank you for working cooperatively with us these past several months to keep our school open for our students. We appreciate your continued support and cooperation in following state guidelines through the remainder of the school year. This will allow our staff to continue focusing their attention on student learning and support as they have done for the past several months.

We hope you have a safe and enjoyable Spring Break!

Take care,
Tiffanie Miley
Principal
Springville Junior High School
-------------------------------------------------
Estimadas familias del distrito de Nebo:

La mayoría de ustedes probablemente sepan que la Legislatura de Utah aprobó recientemente una ley que efectivamente pone fin al mandato estatal de mascarillas en Utah el 10 de abril. Sin embargo, es posible que no sepan que “los requisitos de mascarillas para las escuelas K-12 PERMANECEN EN LUGAR hasta el 15 de junio. Además, los funcionarios locales, como la junta escolar, NO tienen autoridad legal para poner fin al requisito de máscaras escolares antes de esta fecha ".

Gracias por trabajar cooperativamente con nosotros estos últimos meses para mantener nuestra escuela abierta para nuestros estudiantes. Agradecemos su continuo apoyo y cooperación para seguir las pautas estatales durante el resto del año escolar. Esto permitirá que nuestro personal continúe enfocando su atención en el aprendizaje y el apoyo de los estudiantes como lo han hecho durante los últimos meses.

¡Esperamos que tenga unas vacaciones de primavera seguras y agradables!

Cuídate,
Tiffanie Miley

Each year 9th graders at SJHS have the opportunity to present a TED talk in their English Classes. In her talk, Julia Hill presented on how music affects our mental health. She explains “I thought about one of my favorite things to present about.” People are nervous before they present. Julia explains it as, “I got more and more nervous every step that I took towards the front of the class.” During Julia’s TED Talk everyone was engaged. Delia Thompson says that her favorite part of Julia’s TED Talk is, “When Julia used memes that were related to all of us.” Once Julia was done she was so proud that she did it. “If TED asked me to do a real TED talk I would do it.” Julia said she likes to do projects about what she is most passionate about. When you're in 9th grade, look forward to giving your TED talk and remember these things that made Julia successful!

Sadie Bussburg is one of the many great 9th graders here at Springville Junior high. Sadie Bussburg likes to dance and cheer. If Sadie could learn to do anything, she would learn how to do sign language. “I would learn sign language because my grandma signs and I think it would be cool to learn how to do.” Sadie’s favorite place she has been to is New York. “New York is my favorite because it was really fun and it was my first major trip.” Sadie’s favorite part of school is seeing her friends and all of the social aspects of school. Sadies favorite class is sewing. “I like sewing because I get to see my friends and make fun stuff.” When asked what advice do you have for 7th and 8th graders she said,” Don’t let other people get to you. Be who you are and don’t care what other people think.” Overall, Sadie Bussburg is really nice, and really fun to get to know.

Teagan Farrer-Cross Country and Engineering

One thing that Teagan would tell the future generation is “it’s not that hard.” Looking back on the past year of 2020, he is a very optimistic person. 

    When asked what his favorite part about Springville Junior High is, he answered “friends”. I think we can all agree with him. Outside of school, he does cross country and track and plays video games. His favorite one is Wizard of Legends. He went to Brookside Elementary and his favorite book is Five Kingdoms, which if you didn’t know is a series with, ironically, five books. Teagan’s favorite class is band because “Mr. Booth is the best and music is great.” He plans on going to BYU to get a degree in engineering and then move further on the engineering career path.

    Let’s all try to look to the future with the optimistic attitude that Teagan has and remember that if we do so, “it’s not that hard.”

Maddy Boston is one of the fantastic people here at SJHS, this is her 2nd year attending here and she is in 8th grade. She is really enjoying her year even though it's a different one. She enjoys all of the many classes that are offered and she especially enjoys drama and the wide variety of classes she can take with her friends. Outside of school, she participates in competitive cheer, she is involved in the school play, playing the “Sour Kangaroo.'' She is very excited and hopeful for her future and would really love to go into the military or maybe even become a cop. Maddy is a very loving and outgoing student and if you ever need a pick up I suggest going and talking to her!
