Springville Junior High has gotten a lot of new teachers this year. One of the new teachers is Ms. Belnap, she is the new art teacher. I asked Ms. Belnap a couple of questions. For instants I asked what is your favorite part about teaching? She said “ I like seeing all the students walk into class at the beginning of the year and seeing them improve every single day!” What is your least favorite part about teaching? “ I don’t like to seeing students give up on what they are working on.” We are so happy that Ms. Belnap has chosen to come to SJHS to teach the students that are interested in art.
At Springville Junior High, we have a great cross country team. With great coaches Mr. Hammon and Mr. McKell, as well as many awesome athletes. Here is a little info about the team. “Cross Country makes me feel like I can accomplish something,” said Mason Palmer, who is in ninth grade. Meets are on Fridays, and the athletes compete in mile and a half races. Athletes who are on the High School team got invited to compete in Idaho in an event sponsored by Nike. The boys placed 3rd overall, and the girls took home the gold at 1st. Colton Bologna had the opportunity to compete in this event and loved it. “It was awesome to see kids from all over, like Utah, California, and Idaho competing in one place, and it was sponsored by Nike, so that is very cool too.” Some of the runners on the high school team are Malil Boyer, Kaylanna Price, and Spencer Neel. Kudos to them for doing an awesome job! Cross Country is a great way for students to compete, and also have fun while doing it. Colton said “I’m happy that my hard work has paid off.” Overall, this year’s Cross Country has been great, and all the athletes hard work has paid off.
Have you been to P.E. Intramurals yet? If you said no then you should definitely go because it is sooo much fun! You can go if you need to make up P.E or you can just go for fun. And they have a lot of different game to play. It changes almost every week so you can play a lot of different fun sports!
Ashlee Edwards Said “ I love going to intramurals and you can just go hang out with your friends for and hour after school and I don’t even have P.E so I just go for fun!”
If you haven’t gone yet make sure you try it out!
