Fire and Evacuations

Although school is being held today, please do what you feel is best for your students. We understand that families need to be together during difficult times, and we will work closely with students who miss school because of the fire and evacuations.

Also, students who come to school today will be kept inside all day to avoid breathing the contaminated air.

School-wide Read Aloud - Restart

Attributions: 

In an effort to encourage literacy with all of our students, the English department decided to try a school-wide read aloud to start off the year. Every English teacher has been reading the book Restart, by Gordon Korman, to their classes. Students have been participating in online discussions with other classes, answering questions about the development of the story and the various themes that they have seen developing. 

Restart is about a school bully who receives a head injury after falling off of his roof and wakes up several days later with amnesia. He doesn't remember anything about his life before the fall and as he slowly learns who he is, he has to decide what kind of person he wants to be. It's a fun read with a great message for students. We will be reading the book for about another week, but the English department would like to encourage parents to read it as well, so they can have a conversation about it with their students.

If you would like to purchase pictures, please ask your student for the packet. Every student will have their picture taken for the yearbook, whether pictures are purchased or not.

Remember . . . You're never fully dressed without a SMILE! :)

Spartans end the season with a bang.

Our 2018 boys tennis season ended today with a big bang.  Late this afternoon our #2 singles player, Eric Cheney, played the final match of the district tournament against his counterpart from Mapleton.  The winner of the match would end up as the #3 player in that position, and the loser would drop to the #4 spot.  More importantly, the winner of that match would determine which team would end the season as the district's tennis champion, an honor which typically goes to Mapleton. 

The Mapleton player quickly took a 2-0 game lead in a match which required four games to win.  However, Eric gathered himself and stormed back to win the next four games to win the match and give his Spartans teammates the 2018 title.  The final team score was Salem with 29 points and Mapleton with 28.
 
On Monday our JV team played well and tied Mapleton for second place in the district.  Spanish Fork took the JV title. Included is a photo of our varsity team celebrating it's victory- missing from the photo are Zac Anson and Garrison Durrant, our #3 doubles team.
 
Have a great spring season, Spartans!
