This year Springville Junior High School is having a no tardy party at the end of the term for students who are never tardy for class. According to Mr. Ken Van Ausdal, principal of SJHS, the administration wanted encourage kids not to get tardies and reward the ones that don’t. Being on time helps students develop life long skills, shows respect to teachers, helps gain academic skills.
Mrs. Kim Rice, English seven and pre-algebra teacher at SJHS, said, “ If the quality of the party was interesting, I think it would be a fun, adventurous opportunity.”
It’s called the no tardy party because you can only go if you have no tardies. That means that if you have even one tardy you aren’t going to the party at all. Dakota Olsen, a seventh grader at SJHS, said that she is excited for the party. “I don’t get any tardies so I can go,” Dakota said.
