Anyone visiting the school on Tuesday of last week would have surprised to see the teacher's behavior. In a school-wide assesmbly, teachers were acting crazy as they made good on their promises to SaJHS students. The promises were made in order to compete with SHHS to see who could earn the most money for Quinton Muir, an eighth grader at SaJHS battling cancer. It was decided that the winner would get a school-wide BBQ for lunch. SaJHS students rallied around one of their own and collected over $5500 beating Salem Hills High School.
SaJHS, in order to motivate their students to donate, asked teachers to pledge to do something crazy in front of the student body. Jordan Blanchard, PE teacher, volunteered to get his legs waxed. Vice principal Kevin Mecham, ninth grade counselor Mike Adams, English teacher Ryan Williams, and CTE teacher Casey Boyer told the students they would get their hair shaved into a lizard mohawk. English teacher Amy Huhtala offered to die her hair blue and green, which are SaJHS colors, and leave her hair that color through the end of the school year. Other crazy things include swallowing a live gold fish, shaving hair, kissing a snake, and many others. Each teacher named a minimum amount that they had to receive for Quinton. The top three teachers were asked to follow through with their pledge at the end of the week. JanaLee Stubbs, drama teacher and adviser in charge of the event, told the students that if they donated more than $3000, ALL of the teachers would have to do the crazy thing they volunteered to do.
