A New Kind of Art at SJHS

Submitted by tiffanie.miley on Mon, 10/04/2010 - 16:32

The art classes will so release a surprise to the students of Springville Junior High. But it’s not just the art class; anyone can help. The more people that help, the sooner it will be done, and hanging on the wall.

Attention, attention! There is a new opportunity for all future artists at Springville Junior High! During Quest Time on Tuesdays, Mr. David Kindrick, the eighth and ninth-grade science teacher, is leading a new enrichment class called Logo Design.  According to Mr. Kindrick, logo design could be classified as graphic design; which is taking a concept and making it into a simple artistic representation of your idea. Students who go to Mr. Kindrick’s enrichment class will be using logo design to design the school t-shirt for next year.

Springville Junior High School Runs Like the Wind

Who is in the park behind the Grant Building every day except Friday? Who is running as fast as they can? Who is having as much fun as they can?  Who goes to junior high schools in Nebo School District every Thursday to compete and have fun? Who needs students to join their team so that they can get enough players for a bus?  The Springville Junior High School cross country team, that’s who!

Kick Off the School Year with Choir

Submitted by tiffanie.miley on Mon, 10/04/2010 - 16:19

Don’t be surprised if you walk past the choir room and hear melodic “Ha Ha’s.” Students are most likely warming up their voices. In fact, you may hear many interesting sounds coming from that room.

Choir students at SJHS are encouraged to join choir, a class where you learn teamwork, music terms, and how to sing beautifully in a group. Apprentice Singers (seventh grade) master the basics, while Knightingales (eighth grade girls), Journeymen (eighth grade boys), and Mastersingers (the ninth grade audition group) tackle more challenging stuff.

Kangaroos in English

Submitted by tiffanie.miley on Mon, 05/03/2010 - 12:00

On April 28, 2010, students in Ms. Tiffanie Miley’s seventh grade English class were all in shock when a kangaroo jumped into their classroom. Throughout the semester, Andalyn Hall, a student in Ms. Miley’s first period class, has told the class about her grandfather’s kangaroo.  Her grandfather and mom brought the kangaroo in to surprise Andalyn and the rest of the class to celebrate the end of state testing.

Andalyn’s grandfather, Grandpa Dutch, owns a farm in Springville where he raises animals. After his kangaroo is full grown, he will give the kangaroo to one of his friends who keep full grown kangaroos.
