Submitted by april.rockwood on Wed, 12/21/2022 - 08:00

Voted on by the faculty at Springville Jr. High, Melanie Jensen was selected as this year's recipient of the Crystal Apple Award. Ms. Jensen teachers 8th and 9th grade English and is the student council advisor. She is loved by fellow teachers and students for her positive attitude, ever-present smile, and amazing outfits for dress up days.

Ms. Jensen received her bachelor's degree in English teaching from Southern Utah University and has taught English at Springville Jr. High for eight years. We are so lucky to have her here. 

This is what her students have to say about Ms. Jensen:

"Ms. Jensen was supportive, kind, and fun but she still got the job done."

"One of my favorite teachers."

1st Semi-Annual Art Show and Gallery Night

Submitted by april.rockwood on Mon, 12/19/2022 - 11:23

Last week, the Fine Arts department hosted their first student art show and gallery night. Mrs. Spencer's ceramics students and Ms. Belnap's drawing students submitted projects to be displayed and judged by a representative from the Springville Art Museum. Our students did such a great job. It was amazing to see what they have learned in a semester and the incredible projects they were able to create. Below are the award winners from the evening. Watch the video to see their projects. Thank you Mrs. Spencer for organizing such an inspiring night!
