Article: Summer is Almost Here!Published by tara.pina on Fri, 04/27/2018 - 13:27
From todays date, there are only 20 days of school left. The end of school is near, and that means summer is right around the corner. We are still in school though, which means we still have more work to do before we can check out of school. There is Sage Testing, which requires preparation before we can start. But we are almost there.
Sage Testing. All students have experienced it, and some may find it frustrating. Ms. Merrill, who taught seventh and eighth grade science this year thinks Sage is, “good for students to know where they are at.” Sage isn’t just to annoy students, it actually has a reason. There is a test for science, english, and math which goes on for a week or two. After that is the fun stuff.
At Springville Junior HIgh, we have the awesome opportunity to go to Lagoon as a school. As a little treat for Sage Testing we take buses for a day at Lagoon. A couple of hours to run around and enjoy the park. This year it is on May 18, so make sure to get your detentions and deficients made up so you can go enjoy Lagoon.
Sadly, after summer, school will resume again, as it always does. Seveys will no longer be seveys, eighth graders will be the king of the school, and ninth graders will move on to high school. Angela Lopez, in ninth grade is excited for a “fresh start with some of the same kids.” Whether you are excited or not, school will come again and it will bring some changes.
Even though school will always resume, make sure you enjoy the end of school and have an awesome and safe summer. Try to do more outside stuff rather than being camped inside on electronics.
