Dear SJHS parents and guardians:

As you have probably heard, Governor Cox announced today that the statewide K-12 mask mandate will be lifted for the last week of the school year. As we have done all year, we will continue to follow state guidelines and protocols. This means that students will still need to wear masks for the week of May 17, but beginning on Monday, May 24, face masks will not be required for students or staff members in Nebo School District schools. Thank you for your patience throughout this school year with all the changes, and thank you for supporting us as we follow the state mask mandate though the end of next week.

Brooke Bird is one of the many amazing ninth-graders here at Springville Junior High. Brooke likes to cheer and tumble. Brooke is on the Springville High School cheer team. She is looking forward to performing in the halftime shows with the team. If she could learn how to do anything she would want to learn how to do a full in tumbling. “I would want to learn how to do a full because I want to become a better tumbler and I feel like that would be a cool thing to be able to do.” Her favorite places that she has been to are Jamaica and Hawaii. “Those are my favorite places I have been because I got to do a lot of fun activities when I was in Jamacia.

Edie Wilde

Submitted by tara.pina on Wed, 04/28/2021 - 10:58

Edie Wilde is an 8th grader here at SJHS. She loves art and food and loves to socialize. She likes most things about school this year but one thing that she doesn’t like is how most of our assignments have been online this year. She would also love it if we didn’t have to go to school every day, She wishes that we could “go back to normal next year and not have Corona going around anymore”. Edie loves to socialize with new people so if you’re looking to find a new friend Edie would be a great person to get to know!

Lights, Camera, Action: Thomas Gabbitas

Submitted by tara.pina on Wed, 04/28/2021 - 10:54

“I was born… and I wanted to act.” That is why Thomas joined the play. He was Cat and the Hat for Seussical the Musical. 

“My very favorite part of being in the show was playing the saxophone.” When we asked him what the worst part of the play was he explained that one of the days he had a cold and so it was harder to perform and play the saxophone. Thomas says, “I would definitely be in another play, like a musical...As long as it wasn’t an opera.” Sadly he isn’t taking drama class this year, but he is in marching band for the high school. He says that the best part is making new friends. Something else Thomas enjoys is cross country.

Mrs. Bird: Teacher of the Year!

Submitted by tara.pina on Wed, 04/28/2021 - 10:51

Mrs. Bird, one of our amazing math teachers here at SJHS has won teacher of the year! We think that she really deserves this title.

Mrs. Bird has been teaching for 14 years and her favorite part is the student and the people she gets to meet. Mrs. Bird went to college at UVU and studied there before becoming a teacher. She became a teacher so that she could “help students know they are awesome and be another positive adult in their life.”

Mrs. Bird is a great teacher and really deserves this award that she is getting. If you have the time, you should definitely go say congrats!
