8th-grade vs. faculty basketball game

Attributions: 

Last Friday, we held our annual 8th-grade vs. faculty basketball game. Every year the 8th-graders get the chance to go up against their teachers in a 25 minute, full-court contest. It was a lot of fun listening to students cheer on their fellow students as they brought their best game against some of the teachers. 

Most cheer for the student team, but, every year, there is always a small group of 9th-graders who cheer for the teachers.

Both sides played well, and several made some great shots, but, unfortunately for the 8th-graders, the teachers came out victorious and defended their undefeated title. We do, however, wish the best of luck to next year's 8th-grade team.

Earlier in the year teachers played volleyball against the 9th-graders and will be going against 7th-graders in a game of kickball sometime in the spring.

A semester in girls P.E.

In PE This year we have done a lot of fun and challenging things. Yet we have had so much fun. In the beginning of PE, we did land paddling it was so fun. Land paddling is where you have a paddle board then you have a paddle that looks like a real paddle but had a rubber end to it that helped you stop. It was ultimately fun.

After we did volleyball. The hard part in volleyball was that a lot of us couldn’t get it above the net, but it was still very fun to play.

After volleyball we did basketball. Basketball was very fun and challenging at the same time. We had a very hard time trying to make it into the hoop. Lucky we all pretty much figured it out.

Now we are working on dance. We just did a dance where we had to choreograph our own dance in a group. Then we got to perform it in front of the whole PE class. Girls PE is very fun and we love being there.

Choir singing at the Provo Towne Center

Another term has rolled around since our last concert, which means we have another concert coming soon (December 14th, at 7:00 P.M. to be specific). The Christmas concerts are always very exciting, and our choirs have been working very hard to make sure we have a memorable time for both the students and the audience. Along with the concert, last Friday the advanced choirs (Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Bella Voce) performed at both the Provo and Orem malls. This is always one of the choir highlights of the year and always stirs up excitement.

Good luck at the concert!

 

FACS with Mrs. Larsen

In 8th grade FACS, we made bags and they have turned out amazing. Making that bags was so fun and pretty easy. Now we are working on making pj pants or shorts. FACS class has helped me learn how to be a better sewer. After the pj’s we are going to be making dirty clothes bags. They hold your clothes so that you don’t have to. All of us get along so well which makes facts ever more fun. In the past, we made finger pin cushions and for Halloween, we made pumpkin pincushions. One thing I like about FACS is that we are never not working on something. Thanks, Mrs. Larsen!
