Message for 9th Grade Honors English Students

Submitted by tara.pina on Fri, 05/21/2021 - 16:35

Hello, honors scholars!

We hope you are having a fantastic summer. It’s crazy to believe we only have a little more than a month left until school starts, but we are looking forward to working with you this fall! 

With that being said, you may have noticed that you never received an assignment for summer reading. That is because there is no required summer reading this year for 9th grade Honors English at Springville Junior. 

Bye Mrs. Beckstrand!

You all may know Mrs. Beckstrand as just a math teacher. But do you really know her? I don’t mean do you know her name and favorite color but do you know who she is? Like, what did she wanted to be when she grew up? Or, what would she do if she had $1 million? Well, I can give you answers to those questions! When she was little she had ALWAYS wanted to be a teacher or veterinarian. And if she had $1 million she would travel the world! Here’s what she would do if she had 3 wishes

“1. I would wish to always have 1$ more than Bill Gates.

Mrs. Weight and her stay at Springville Junior High

Submitted by tara.pina on Fri, 05/21/2021 - 12:43

Mrs. Weight began her journey as a student teacher here at Springville Junior High.

I asked her to share her story and this is what she replied with, “ I have loved my time here at SJHS. I started as a student teacher, became a long-term sub when Mrs. Mower had her baby, then became a full-time teacher all at SJHS.  My whole career has been at SJHS. It's a little scary to be leaving but it's good to do things that scare you.”

Mr. Stuart

With the end of the school year coming also bring changes. One of those changes is that Mr. Stuart will be leaving SJHS.

Before becoming a teacher, Mr.Stuart worked retail, with the forest service, he also worked in marketing, process improvement, and in printing for years. He is also a professional graphic designer. He loved doing those things, but when he went back to college he was asked to be a teaching assistant, and he learned that he LOVED teaching. So he became a teacher!

Ms. Ottley is not only a teacher. She coaches the girls' high school team and her husband coaches the boys' high school team. They have both been heavily involved in the Utah Lacrosse scene since they first coached a youth team together ten years ago. Three of their sons and their daughter play lacrosse. She absolutely loves lacrosse. She says “it is a beautiful game with a rich and meaningful heritage. I love teaching girls this wonderful sport and watching their skills blossom”.

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.

Tiffanie Miley, Principal

Dear SJHS parents and guardians:

We are nearing the end of end-of-level state testing. The math section is our last test for 7th and 8th graders, and they will complete that test at the beginning of the week. Both of our 9th grade dual language immersion classes will be taking the AP test this week as well. We wish all of our students luck as they finish strong! We will spend some time at the end of this week and throughout next week taking care of make-ups for students who may have been absent or just needed a little more time. Calendar items for this week:

Monday, May 10:
