Next week our school's counselors and the Hope Squad are sponsoring Hope Week with the theme Unplug and Reconnect. The theme is focused on the concern that too much time spent on electronics and especially social media can be detrimental to student's physical and mental health. This whole week our counselors will be reminding students to put down their phones and reconnect with their friends and their surroundings on a personal level. Above is the schedule of planned activities for the week.
Congratulations to the 7th grade football team for winning the super bowl! The 7th graders are the only grade in the school that won their super bowl. They played a tough game against Springville, a team that they had lost against earlier in the season. Everybody came together as a team and several students made some great plays that helped our team take the victory. That is incredible. We are so proud of the 7th graders!
We are sad to see the season come to an end but it sure has been great. Especially for the 7th graders, they are probably so happy. If you see them anywhere just congratulate them!

After a two year absence, we have decided to bring back our school newspaper The Spartan Chronicle. After Mrs. Ashworth used old Chronicles in her production of Guys and Dolls last year, students began asking why we didn't have a paper anymore, so we have brought it back.
Our journalism students are proud of their articles and excited to see their names and their writing in the newspaper. Having a large audience like this can be great motivation to get kids writing more.
Here is a digital copy of the newspaper. If you see an article from someone you know, make sure to tell the writers that you read their work.
