New SaJHS Marquee

New marquee welcoming everyone to SaJHS

The electronic marquee is now functional and is a wonderful addition to our school. The procurement of the sign has been a great effort on the part several parties.

  • Kirk and Angela Rogers: Kirk was integral in securing the donation of the sign from UCCU; Angela is a SaJHS PTA board member
  •  UCCU: Utah Community Credit Union – donated the actual sign to SaJHS
  • SaJHS PTA: Raising funds to cover refurbishment and installation through various fundraisers including tee shirt sales, Bullseye Buck (student fundraiser), Spartan Family Fun Run
  • Karen Riding: Donated funds for the sign and her family previously owned the land where the school is located.

We would like to thank everyone involved in this exciting project! If anyone would like to donate, please contact the SaJHS PTA president, Laurine Jack at, or call Mrs. Beardall at SaJHS at 423-6550. We have incredible support at SaJHS from our parents and community members – thank you!!

News from the SaJHS Lunchroom

News and Information from the Lunchroom

Our wonderful cafeteria staff has helped us start out our new school with delicious and nutritious meals! They have some information they would like to share with students and parents:

  • Cost: The school lunch cost is $2.25 for students and $3.00 for adults this year.
  • PayPams: It is very helpful to students and staff if lunch fund balances are kept current. The PayPams system is a great way to view balances, check your child’s nutrition spending, view online account statements, make online payments, receive low balance email reminders, and set up automatic payments based on balance. PayPams can be accessed on the Nebo website ( under the Parents drop down menu.
  • Stamps: The lunch managers will stamp a student’s hand when the fund balance is low.
  • Menu: Please check the menu online on the Nebo webpage ( under the Parents drop down menu.
  • Free or Reduced Lunch: Please see the Lunch Clerk for information
  • Breakfast: We offer breakfast each morning. Please note: If a student receives free/reduced lunch, they also receive free/reduced breakfast.

New Items: We are offering some new wonderful salads including chef and taco salads as well as a baked potato bar on Fridays – these are all very delicious and nutritious!!
