This week the 6th grade students learned how and why we have seasons. Using an ohm meter, they measured the amount of heat reaching different parts of the earth at different points in its' revolution around the sun. They were able to see that the northern and southern hemispheres receive different amounts of heat, and therefore have opposite seasons.

Park View Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Taylor will be working with Dance Integration this school year.   5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students created dancing EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS to share a message about Ancient Egypt.   3rd-4th grade will be visiting with the Dance Specialist in a couple of weeks as well.  Wait until then to hear more!

On September 20th, students from Spanish Fork Junior High representing the various fall sports and the Student Council were invited to attend an awesome leadership conference and receive instruction from some very influential people.

Captain’s Academy is a fantastic leadership experience for young people.  The fall sport athlete captains representing SFJH were Spencer Larsen- Cross Country, Staci Lomenick- Cross Country, Noah Taylor- Golf, and McKenna Crook- Tennis.  Max MaKenzie attended representing Student Council. 

The meeting started off with a speaker from IHC about the importance of sleep for athletes and human beings.  Brodie Berg, a former Pro Golfer turned Fireman, then presented on what it means to be a leader, sharing some great experiences. 

After a short break the final speaker was Wes Ruff, the sports anchor for Channel 4 News.  Ruff presented on sportsmanship and being a captain.  Ruff also had many great experiences and stories to tell. 

It was very beneficial for these young students to attend and to be able to learn more about what it means to be a Captain!
