Dear SJHS parents and guardians:

We are happy to update you that the confirmed daily COVID-19 case counts at our school have started to decline. Therefore, the District has let us know that they do not plan to “Test to Stay” or move us to an “Alternating Day Schedule.” Of course, student safety and success are always our top priority. Thank you for following the guidelines and keeping your students home from school if they aren’t feeling well or if someone in your household is awaiting test results. This is reducing the contacts that we are seeing here at school.

Tiffanie Miley, Principal

Cressida Roper swings at the racket with everything she has as she races down the tennis court.  If you haven't noticed yet, Cressida does tennis which is her favorite activity “because it's fun and I can learn helpful things.” But when Cressida isn't on the court, she's here in school. Her favorite class is Seminary “because it's a nice environment.” Cressida is not only a great tennis player but also a great friend and student, and her family and friends are there to support her all the way.

As most of the school knows it is officially wrestling season! And this season brings so many great beginnings. On the wrestling team, there is a brand new girls team! On that team, they have a great 9th-grade wrestler named Laura Weakley. Laura is a great wrestler and her dad is actually the coach for the SJHS wrestling team. When asked how it was like having a wrestling coach right in her living room she said: “I like having him because I can get extra practice at home or whenever I want.” Wrestling runs in her family so she is pretty experienced.

Jocee is a 9th grader at SJHS who likes to be challenged in her classes. In fact, that's one of her favorite parts about 9th grade.
Jocee’s favorite class happens to be sewing. She likes sewing because she likes to make the projects. But her favorite thing about school is lunch. She likes to chat with her friends and be able to take a break from schoolwork. Jocee likes being in classes where she can be challenged but also have fun.
In her free time, Jocee likes to run, and when she's not doing that she likes to do homework and read.

DyBorrah Johnson: outstanding school citizen

Submitted by tara.pina on Sun, 01/31/2021 - 23:11

Dyborrah Johnson is the “new girl” at SJHS but you would’ve thought that she’s been with us for years; she’s an all-around friend to everyone here at SJHS. Her favorite part of SJHS is getting to know a lot of people and doesn’t remotely dislike anything about our school because she feels that it’s a great school. Her favorite subjects are science and math because “sometimes it’s good to learn something new that can help you out in life.” She does Basketball, Softball, Tennis, Swim, Volleyball, and she Tutors sometimes. She is very sporty as you can tell; but that’s not all there is to her. She went to Westmore Elementary in Orem but she misses all of her old friends.

Submitted by tara.pina on Sun, 01/31/2021 - 23:07

Do you want to get to know a nice 8th-grade student? Make a new friend? Well, say hello to Aaron Reynolds!
Aaron Reynolds is an 8th grader here at SJHS and he loves math because he said “Math is like puzzles in the right mindset." His favorite part about this school year so far is still being able to come to school, and his least favorite part is the no Quest Time, and we have to wear masks. He isn’t a part of any clubs or sports but he would like to be! When asked if he could change anything about this school year he said he would take away all the masks because he would like to still see everyone's faces. Aaron Reynolds is just an all-around awesome person and you should really get to know him!
